2013 Scion FR-S: The Perks Of Short Legs
October 15, 2012
As Josh Jacquot found out with the Subaru BRZ, a 29er full-suspension mountain bike will fit. Easily, he said. Not that I don't trust every word that comes out of Jacquot's mouth, but I needed to find out for myself with the Scion FR-S.
Unlike Jacquot, I don't have one of them fancy-pants dropper seat posts, and I was hoping I wouldn't have to manually lower mine.
I wouldn't call it "easy" (the pass-through is pretty tight), but I was able to finagle it into the FR-S without removing the rear wheel or lowering the seat post, the latter being one of the very few perks of having short legs.
Yep, the passenger seat was moved all the way forward.
For sure it's impressive to be able to put a bicycle in this little sports car. The mountain bikers standing around were pretty surprised as I unloaded it.
