Really interesting! I figured I'd have to take the seat post out to get a large frame mountain bike in the 3, but apparently not. A lot easier to put a bicycle in the S but it is nice to see that you can do it in the 3 as well.GRA wrote:Edmunds has a Model 3 in their lo g term test fleet. For those who, like me, want to be able to carry a bike in the car, turns out even a large frame will fit quite well, although you have to remove the front wheel: https://www.edmunds.com/tesla/model-3/2017/long-term-road-test/2017-tesla-model-3-will-an-xl-size-mountain-bike-fit.html
I always keep an old bedspread in my trunk to serve as a pad and to catch the dirt from my bike — living on a dirt road it always has some dried mud on it. Also makes it easier to slide the bicycle inside without worrying about damage to the car.
