Ok I have to say that I use a sturdy folding chair to get up there. I'm pretty short too and I don't like having to use the chair but it is theonly way that I can get up there. The other suggestion about the rack sounded good too. Good luck finding a solution.
I don't have a roof rack; but I see people putting bikes up all the time. I think there is a technique where you open the car door and then use the door jamb ledge as a boost if you aren't tall enough.
I have hitch-mounted rack. It was no small task finding a hitch for my VW GTI but I'm glad I did it. I can lock the hitch to the car and lock the bike to the hitch.
With a Tribeca ... can't you just put the bike in the back of the car?
I'd rather be sitting on my bike thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my bike ...

How the heck do you get your bike on there? I have a Suburu Tribeca (a crossover SUV that is lower than regular SUVs) and have thought about getting a roof rack for my bike. But I don't know how I would get my bike up there. It's super light, but I'm only 5'5" and not sure how I would lift it above my head. Do you all keep stools in your car?
I have a good trunk mounted rack now, but when I had to travel with it and make stops I was always worried that someone would come steel my bike since their is no way to lock the rack to the car.
