I fit a large frame, 26" wheel mountain bike in mine, with the left side
of the back seat down -- but it helps to have a second pair of hands.

On edit: OTOH, I usually pull the front wheel -- it's quicker & easier.
Much easier when solo.

It really depends on frame size and chainstay length more than anything.

The only one of my bikes that will fit with both wheels on is a 700c race bike. My 26" Long Haul Trucker requires the front wheel pulled, but a small mountain bike with tight geometry would probably fit.

Why can't you pull the front wheel?

My Trek 6000 seems to have a relatively small frame.

No problem pulling the front wheel, I currently do that to fit the bike in the back of my Firebird. I just figured it would be nice if a benefit of having the wagon would be to NOT have to pull the front wheel.

Hello

As others mentioned, it depends on the bike. All my road bikes and my 26" HT and the "small" marathon fully fit, but the all mountain does not. Problem is the handlebar.
