    DIY or purchased item to transport bike(s) in van w/o removing front wheel?

    I know its no biggie to some but i really enjoy just pulling my bike right out of my '12 sienna and jumping on and off i go. problem is i would like to transport my bike upright and nicely without having it lean on anything or lay on its side pedal. I've tried some rear wheel base stands but the bike still falls over easily. anyone have a solution to packing a bike in a van without removing the front wheel or just having it lie on the van floor?

    I lean mine against the side of the van and use the seatbelts to wrap around seat post / bars. Works fine (though I've never tested with a for-real accident, touch wood)

    I suppose you could get more stability / safety with a couple of velcro straps and a little ingenious rigging via the seatbelt mounts.

    The floor of your van should have anchoring latches. You could use tie downs.

    yeah figured so but wanted something really quick to use to get bike in and out real quick. tie downs would probably take longer than removing my front wheel
