On the early pictures I see you have a bike in there, what are you using to hold it in place, it looks like a wall mounted repair stand? How did you find it worked? Been looking for a better solution that the classic bungee strap
It's one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153088919316 with the plate mounted to ply lining. It's been spot on, the only issue is if you have another bike with a different height/angle top tube it might not fit for both bikes. Also, the front wheel has to be pushed into the passenger seat, or bungee'd to the frame to stop it moving about while you're driving.
