    Vertical mounting of a bike in a van...

    Hashing out my van build for a Promaster. The bike is a large Scott Spark 900 29ner.

    I had the idea of mounting the bike vertically against the rear wall. Like what you see with the town bike in this picture. But against the wall....fork facing forward and handle bars point up/parallel the frame.

    The bike would basically go into a closet just big enough for the bike. The problem being securing the front fork when you can't actually get your hands on it since it would be deep into a cabinet.

    The bike has a thru axle 15X100. The OD of the axle is 0.59" . My idea would be to use a few PEX tube snap in clips to hold the axle and bike. The idea being I could just snap the axle into this.

    Any thoughts on other ways to this?

    Put an access panel that you could open to get to the fork mount.
