I really need your help and advice. I just dropped a TON of money for a new ICE Adventure RS, and one detail I overlooked was how in the heck do I tote this thing around in my car?

I don't own a hatchback, I own a Chevy Cruze which has a miniscule sized trunk. Therefore, I need a trunk mounted carrier. A trailer hitch carrier will not work.

Can anyone PLEASE help me with recommendations for a trunk mounted carrier that will work for the ICE Adventure RS?

I love my new bike, but can't transport it to the nearest Metro Park to test out the trails!

As Harv noted, this is a folding trike. Can't you just fold it and put it in the trunk?

I remember seeing a video on the ICE site where they break down a trike to fit in the parcel area of a smart car. Maybe the QR options for the front wheels and main frame tubes would be a thing to consider if you plan to travel with the trike more than a few times. Need to ask why a trailer hitch rack won't work. Isn't a hitch available for the Cruze? That would let you buy racks that store trikes either vertically or horizontally. (are you leasing the cruze? that would be a problem with mounting a hitch.) You can also buy roof rack mounted carriers that will mount a trike.

Just noticed it is a trike. Forget my suggestion.

The cheapest way out that will work pretty good. They have them at WalMart. Bell 2-Bike Double-Back Rack
