    That's mostly thanks to the IRS - the 2005-2014 cars have a huge hump right behind the seats to accommodate their SRA. Trunk size seems almost identical to me, other than that hump. Definite bonus!

    The 2 little guys are short enough to fit back there - and they latches get easier after a while.

    Both Colnago and Salsa make a device that clamps to the rear dropout(s) to hold the chain in its normal position with the wheel removed. That makes it possible to remove both wheels so the bike can be placed upside down in the rear footwell, with the handlebars turned to fit. It won't work with every car, but it allowed me to carry my road or mountain bike in the rear passenger area of my Audi 4000s Quattro (gas tank mounted behind the rear seat, so the rear seatback(s) didn't fold),

    Years ago chain hanger tabs on the rear triangle were common. But in today's carbon fiber gram obsessed world your rarely see them.
