Securing a Mountain bike

Post by Richard.morgan » Mon Jan 13, 2020 3:38 am

Hi guys I’m trying to come up with a solution to secure x2 mountain bike in a maxi.

I’ve had it carpeted/ply lined with 6mm ply and bulkhead removed and I don't want to smash the side of the van in or for this to be a permanent fixture as I use the van for multiple things (including camping) so would need to either be not obtrusive, or removable

I thought about attaching eyelet to the ply but feel these would probably just get ripped out of the wall (any way to Reinforce it?)

Any suggestions appreciated thanks

I use one of these:

This secures the front wheel (bike is size large 29er), then I use small ratchet straps on the ringbolts that are in the floor. You should find that you have either these eyelets, or holes for them to be installed under the ply (mine is carpeted and there are holes in it for the eyelets. Once tied down both sides, it's solid and doesn't move. Everything is removable.
