up so that it doesn't get things greasy? I just got a new car, and I'm contemplating using it to transport my bike to races by taking off the wheels, but I don't want greese all over my interior.
never heard of anything like that.butthe bull

... depending on your car, how 'bout drive side up?

You might also consider pipe insulation (also from a home supply store)... you can split it lengthwise and wrap it around "offending" parts of your drivetrain... though, I think an old blankey would do it for me.

Be the bike.

master link such as the Wipperman Connex. It takes two seconds to remove the chain, and about five seconds to replace it. You could then place it in a plastic bag for transport. No tools are necessary to remove or reinstall it.

They are based out of Missoula, Montana and make a variety of products for solo and tandem bikes, to protect drivetrain/chain from damage from outside transport, or to protect your interior during inside transport. Good stuff, I use it on both my tandem and solo bikes.
Just get a blanket or a rack...biknben

The grunge from your bike won't come from only the chain. The chain is the most obvious place but pedals, skewers, tires, etc. will also get crap all over your interior over time.

If you have to carry the bike inside, use a big blanket or plastic to protect the car.

I use large, old beach towels across the back seat, remove the wheels, and use a pedro's chain keeper to keep the slack pulled out. have been doing this for a couple years on long road trips. worked ok last weekend. only drawback versus exterior rack is labor required to assemble bike before ride and break-down after (when tired and sweaty).

I won't transport the bike external to the vehicle on drives longer than 30 minutes.
U could always try cleaning your chain! (nm)juanteal

Throw a plastic tarp in the back of your car. Or an old blanket.

I've got this carpet-type thing (industrial carpeting on one side, rubberized on the bottom) that I bought for about 10 bucks that I use. It just seems easier to cover the seat than it is to wrap the chain itself.
