(Not really my bike - I found it with a web search after the CT photo with tires in the back.)

This will always remain the most reasonable option. It annoys me to have to disassemble and reassemble bicycles every time
If you don’t care about range, just put rails in the vault and walk them in. With the option to lower the rear of the truck, it should be no problem to stand them up in the vault.

If you do care about range, the rack with trash your range as much or more than putting them in the bed so you gotta pull them apart.

When I owned the truck, I only used the rack on it when I had 4+ bikes. It was easier to just mount them in the bed.

From today.

Needs a custom bike tailgate pad because of that 5th brake light.

Yes, it is looking remarkably small, and I want to put some inflatable kayaks in with the bikes too. ;)

Does anyone know what the measurements of the back-seat area will be, and whether the seats will fold up or be removable? Somebody previously posted a pic of bikes in the back-seat of a different pickup which seemed workable.

I am currently thinking: two e-bikes on their wheels in the back-seat area, and everything else in the bed in back. Not quite as secure, but with back-window tints it's way better than having them on a hitch rack outside the truck.
