    Hi, anyone know if you’d fit one in a boot (Volvo V50 estate) ? I know they’re v heavy but if able to lift, has anyone had one in a similar car or know, thanks?

    weigh 40kg and dimensions  100cm(l), 50cm(w), 112cm(h) (saddle and handlebars at the lowest point) so should be able to fit it into a car

    Thanks, yes so my boot is 70cm high and 100cm or so wide, so on its side at an angle I’m imagining it’ll go in, just don’t want to waste a decent road trip so checking if anyone has done it, thanks

    The handlebars and sadde can be removed I think. You'll want to remove the pedals too but otherwise it should fit into the boot of an estate car.

    Out of interest where did you pick it up? I was looking for one recently and couldn’t find one for sale in time for Christmas
