Transporting my new lightweight carbon toy
Now I've bought a shiny new Trek Emonda, made from gossamer thin eggshell carbon, I was wondering how I get it to all the events I'm undoubtedly going to want to ride in?
I have a convertible so no roof racks, and no room to carry it inside if I want the roof closed so that's a dry-weather only option. I have a towbar with a 'hang by the top tube' type rack, but they're not advised as I understand it?
... leaving the wheel-clamp towbar types like the Thule Ride-On 9502 and similar as the only apparent option, but they still need strapping around the tubes as well, so is that just as worrisome?
All the thousands of carbon roadies out there must be transporting bikes by the thousand - how do you all do it without risking your ridiculously expensive faberge bikes?
