Do you have one? How do you transport your bike?

I have a Countryman and we have the Mini bike rack for the back. If you go to the Yakima rack site they have a "fit my car" app to tell you what you would need for your Mini.

a guy I ride with from time to time has one, I think he takes his bike apart and puts it inside.

I run the OEM Mini cross bars with Rocky Mounts Euro fork mount bike trays. It's low profile and almost no wind noise. Before I just used a strap type hatch mounted 3 bike carrier, but it was never that secure, and I couldn't lock the bike to the car. It always made me nervous when I was running into the store or a gas station.
The cross bars you can get from Detroit Tuned in Clinton Twp. for about $275. The racks I got from ORSRacksdirect.com for about 125 a piece. EVERYTHING is locked to the car so there are no worries now.
The whole setup is a little pricey I know, but the peace of mind is worth it. No more scratching my awesome car, the bikes are held very secure, and there's almost no chance that I will come out and find them missing. That would be devastating.
