The crosswind issue isn't actually that bad, remember that quite a lot of the bicycle is open for wind to flow through, there is comparatively little surface for the wind to grab.

I leave the rear wheel on my road bike - it is slightly aero, but its very, very light and I haven't been able to find a handling difference either way. My DH bike travels with the wheels removed, those are very heavy and do have an effect on handling.

I'm preparing to build virtually the same setup for a 700 NCX. Are you pleased with the handling?

Hey Keith,
The only times I really notice the bike is at very slow speeds and wind gusts. It's a little tippy feeling up to about 10 mph or so. Once I get going, it's fine. I also feel it a bit when a sideways wind gust hits but probably not too much more than I'd experience without the bike mounted. I have ridden everything from back road twisties to highway speeds and having the bike mounted has never caused me concern. It's been well worth these small issues to be able to ride to a trailhead. Hope this helps and let me know if you've got any other questions. Be sure and post up your mount once it's finished.
Cheers,
Brent

Here's my setup on my Sherpa, not the prettiest but it works fine! I did 550 miles over Labor Day weekend and it gave me no trouble! Got in lot of good riding on the Sherpa, and the Kona!

This was several years ago to go to a 24 hour race 350 miles away which ended up including some pretty rutted and rocky dirt road (thanks Garmin). Glad I didn't have it sticking out the back. Probably 100 lbs of camping gear in the luggage too.



I am going to make a bike rack this fall that replaces one of the luggage boxes and mounts in the existing luggage rack on the side for lower CoG.
