I used to keep a full-sized mountain bike inside, but it needed to be so disassembled I never ended up using it. It was just there for emergencies.




Recently I went the folding e-bike route, with a 2017 (no front suspension) Rad Power Bikes "Radmini". I don't want my bike to be outside my van (roof or rear door) because it'll surely get smashed on trees or when I back into something - or get bounced to death on washboard roads.

Here is a pic of the infamous Yamaha Moto-bike. This is not mine but exactly the bike (minus the reflectors lol). Wish mine was in good condition like that...

For a minute I thought the trials bike was the new Santa Cruz. Figures people with an unnatural relationship with a van would get kinky with bikes.

I just finished this. Good history lesson for me.

I had the identical Moto-bike! Mine was orange and go stolen by the super scary neighborhood bully. Even though we all knew it I never got it back. Saddest day for me. I still have my xr75 that took the sting off losing my moto bike.
