    I'm not understanding the problems with fit. My 5' bed takes this bike with the tailgate closed. It's a large frame fat bike that I've got 3" tires on so it's not small, and it fits perfectly.

    Ok now lower the HT angle to ~64deg, toss on a 170mm fork, 29 inch wheels, and make it not a hardtail.

    Then re-measure and come back and tell us we’re wrong.

    i have a medium frame 2017 bronson, so 150mm fork and 27.5 wheels. when I shut the tailgate, it literally compresses the tire a bit. A large frame of this same bike definitely wouldn't fit. i suspect that a medium 29er FS bike would also not fit.

    conversely, my 140mm hardtail fits with some space to spare. a rigid fat bike is a poor example.
