Has anyone ever put a Beach Cruise inside?
Besides lowering handle bars, would the front tire need to be removed?

you most likely will have to remove the front tire.


it will also make it easier to load the bike back there.
Ive yet to see a light beach cruiser.
You probably have a wheel with the nuts that you need a wrench to remove.


If you will be riding around plenty - it may be to your benefit to convert your tire to the quick release type.
flip the lever- and the wheel slides off.

My bikes have fit in the back of my 2008 and 2018 Equinox.
When taking two bikes I use a receiver rack.

I only use mine when hauling the bikes.
Takes less than 1 minute to install or remove a hitch rack.

look into the saris brand of bike racks. I have the bones 3 and it works well, easy to install and remove and doesn't require a trailer hitch. I also have 2 carriers on the roof. I actually like the look and the terrain is low enough (2012) that it doesn't get in the way when you go into parking garages etc. Really handy when you just want to throw a bike on the roof.

@leeF - I see the Mackinaw Bridge in the background of one of your pics. Nice!

@woulddug - I have a2010 Terrain and my Trek 7700 road bike with a 25" frame fits just fine with the back seats down, without the front wheel taken off.
