    that's honestly what i'd like. If I were to come across a white or sonic yellow wagon, i'd sell my car in a heartbeat. I got a pretty good deal on my car, and it's pretty much stock, and I could easily put it back to 100% stock. We shall see haha

    it's a giant yukon. it's not a super expensive bike or anything, but for me, just getting started, it'll be a good bike. I was looking at new ones, but i found a used one for a good price. it has an aluminum frame, disc brakes, full shimano drivetrain, and a dart shock, so it sounds like a nice bike
    Giant isn't a bad company. Plus aluminum frame, and disc brakes are always good.
    I have a Rocky Mountain Edge and I'm about to get a Transition Bottlerocket.

    The Heckler is a really good bike too. Do you use it mainly for trail?

    My RM Edge is an A/M but I use it way more for freeriding (drops, skinnies, jumps, etc) than for trail riding. I currently have a Transition Bottlerocket frame on the way. Once I get that built, I'll use it for the extreme stuff and convert the Edge back to an XC/trail bike.

    Have you ever ridden a mtn bike with disc brakes? There is a night/day difference. They will stop you on a dime, well, at least the bike will stop. You will go over the bars. LOL

    I use my heckler for trails, park, hucking and street riding. Living in NYC I don't get to go to the trails as often as i'd like so flights of stairs, planters and city parks suffice

    I enjoy and use all of my 140mm of travel in both front and rear (Fox DHX 5.0 back, Fox RLC vanilla front)

    yea they are really nice my XTR brakes are not too bad either... not bad enough for me to buy new wheels and tires and brakes to replace them.

    Ive never enjoyed ridding softail bikes, but i am A BMX racer since age 4.

    The Saris Bones is a decent trunk rack that should fit over the standard WRX spoiler just fine. It's pretty easy to get on and off too. I have a friend that has one.

    +1 for roof racks tho - much simpler to use and less of a pain. Health benefits too from the decreased blood pressure knowing the $5,000 worth of bikes on your car is locked up and safe when you need to stop for a sammich.

    Oh and if you ride much, you're GOING to scratch your car with your bike. Accept and move on.

    You probably won't need any wrenches at all. The wheels most likely have quick release levers (make sure the seller shows you how to use them for safety's sake) as will the seatpost. Sometimes people replace their quick release seatpost binders with bolts, so bring a folding metric Allen wrench set with you. The most common sizes will be 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm.

    The WRX is perfect for getting mountain bikes to trailheads.

    Bikes!

    That sounds right (4 feet wide) but run your car through their configurator just to verify:

    Bikes fit in my wagon just fine.

    wagons can pull small trailers or trailer hitch platforms that hold bikes and gear....

    you can sell your car for what you paid for it i bet, then just find a wagon there are plenty for sale. its kinda crazy but not insane any mods you have will go right on the wagon too
