Hey, a Pro Machine SLC01 bike on a Volvo XC70

It's not that the all-new Volvo XC70, on display Sunday through Tuesday at ispo Sport & Style in Munich, Germany, is really a green ride. In this case, it's what's on top that counts. At the show, Volvo is pushing this year's Volvo Sports Design Forum and the Volvo Sports Design Award, just like its been doing since 2003. The award-winner this year is the Swiss bicycle expert BCM with their Pro Machine SLC01.

The Volvo XC70 that will be displayed at ispo will feature a Pro Machine SLC01 mounted on a special roof rack.
Volvo points out that the Pro Machine SLC01 is easy to get onto the roof, because the bike's frame weighs less than a kilogram (it's heavy on the wallet, though, at about US$3,650).

I'll be more impressed when built-in bike racks like this one are standard equipment, or at least affordable options, on more vehicles.
