I don't want to put bike racks on my roof because of the wind noise and looks.
Is it safe for the bike to transport it laying flat inside the back of my SUV, obviously with the drivetrain side facing up? (The bike fits without needing to take the wheels off.)
I am worried that laying it flat will put undue (and unnatural) force against the XX1 Eagle carbon crank and potentially damage it or the bottom bracket.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
One thing i would say is that bikes tend to shift around a bit when going over bumps etc. in the road so you might want to place a few heavy things around it (there's a box of walking boots in my family car that does rather nicely)
Cannondale Supersix 2008 (weight: 7.3kg)
B'twin Triban 540 (in bits)
Vitus "Benotto" 979 (weight: )

But then you got to be careful not to damage the fork when taking sharp hairpins with the SUV, though
This post cannot be serious - I thought I was obsessive caring for bikes but this here is plain pathological.
Actually, since the car interior is small, sometimes the rear stay (non-drive side drop out) will be rested on the back of reclined front passenger seat, with two (2) 29er wheelsets (four (4) wheels in total) rest on top of the frame.
