2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Bike Fits in the Cab, All Wheels On

I'm a big fan of pickups. Not only do I actually enjoy driving them, but I love that trucks make it easier to haul around motorcycles and bicycles. You know, because of that bed behind the cab. But what if I want to throw the bicycle in the cab instead? Will it fit? Without taking any wheels off? Because that would be kinda awesome. And easy.

I was headed to the 80-mile Mike Nosco Memorial charity road ride in Thousand Oaks, and I aimed to find out with our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

I folded both rear seats up (simply pull them up, no releases needed) and the bike slid right in. Well, just barely. Helps that it's only a 54 cm road bike. It's entirely possible 56 cm and higher won't fit in this fashion. I tried the same thing a day later with my medium 29er hardtail mountain bike and it was a no-go. The front wheel had to come off.

Still, I was pretty impressed the road bike fit so perfectly in the Ram's crew cab. I didn't even need to secure it. It stayed in place naturally without any problems on the drive up and back. And of course, it was completely safe inside the truck.
