    Any knowledge, or speculation if a full sized bike will fit in the Y with seats down ? I have a 3 now and trying to rationalize ordering a Y. I had an S, love the 3 but miss the hatchback.

    Of course none of us have any dimensional data, but I bet it will fit a bike w/o removing a wheel. It's about the same size/length as my X3 and I don't have to remove a wheel for it to fit.
    And, I too am tired of using my 3 for my bike since I have to remove a wheel AND I have to lower my seat post for it to fit.

    No. You must remove all four wheels from your Model Y in order to fit a bicycle. :p

    Sorry, no picks it was my daughters regular size women's mountain bike around Christmas time. I remember it easily fitting. Front tire on folded middle seat. It would be even easier with the front tire removed.

    I bet a bike will fit nicely.
    This is the reason I'm waiting for the Y. When I'm done at an event I can just stuff the bike in.
    Still would prefer a wagon though.
