What is a "Carmy", anyway?
It's the dyslexia version of "my car." My car used to be a Camry. I need my eyes fixed...

What size were the bikes?

Hey Ferd,

What size were those bike? Did'nt someone write that Honda was deceiving in that it was a tiny bike in the ads for the "Inside" bike rack? Just curious...

There is about 37 inches of clearance from floor to ceiling just behind the middle row in the Pilot. My bike is a 17" frame hardtail mountain bike. With the saddle in place, I have a few inches to spare.

Eddie Joe has a taller, full suspension bike. Without completely removing the saddle, there wasn't enough room.

Cargo Tray

Ferdball, you're making great use of all that storage capacity in the Pilot. But, why don't you have a Cargo Tray installed to help protect the carpet?

Ah, good question. It's because the bike extends into the 2nd row where the cargo cover doesn't.. um... cover. It also works well if I have the second row split 60 or 40.

In this case, I have both the 2nd and the 3rd rows folded with the 60 sides up. I can still (technically, but not comfortably) seat 6 people with one bike inside. The max config is 3 bikes with three people inside.

This little Honda is really versatile!

Try the cargo liner. I have it and the tray, and together they protect my interior from wet stuff (the tray) and longer, dirty stuff (my bike).

Great pictures! I can't wait to do that when I get mine. Husband and I took the baby an his surfboard in the Infiniti. What a nightmare! I didn 't even have room to put my feet on the floor in the front seat with all the crap we lugged.

Well, the baby really shouldn't be using a surfboard anyway. :D

Well, I was thinking about putting a few of those bike fork locks (or what ever you call them) on a cut 2 x 4 and that way I wouldn't have bolt them to the cargo floor. However, I have a 22" Specialized. Guess I better see if my bike fits at all before I try anything. Thanks for the pics Ferdball.

Love the baby/surfboard picture! I meant to say the husband's surfboard but I guess it came out wrong. Keep the pic though, as soon as the baby starts to walk he will have her on a board!

I tried that. I had a problem with the wood rotating. I couldn't stabilize it enough to keep it from moving. If you find a way, please let us know.

Hey, are you being clobbered by that HUGE Colorado snow storm? Or did you take shelter in, say, Florida???
