Storing a bike in my van
With the amount of bikes that get nicked from vans, would be a definite no for me (if I had a van). Stored in a car under cover would be more secure (insurance would insist they must be out of sight).
Vans seem easy targets or easy to break into (like sheds). House far more preferable.Posted 6 months agoseanrobertson88Member
I’ve got a small flat and 3 bikes, with my gf moving in, the bike room is transitioning into more of a spare bedroom (doesn’t make any sense to me frankly). Anyway, space is at a premium so I was wondering if anyone here has any experience keeping bikes permanently in a van.
Can they be insured? Am I asking for trouble here? It’s a full panel van so they would be pretty much invisible from the outside.
Any advice welcome,

Bike room transitioning into a spare room yeah, I thought the bike room was the current main bedroom.
Do you have any outside space or attic space you could utilize for storage of bikes?
Otherwise put the 2 posh bikes on the wall in the smaller bedroom with a couple of these pedal mounts and lock the commuter in the stairwell with a big chain.Posted 6 months agotthewSubscriber
Well, as a counter argument, I do. My view is that it’s like a steel shed, alarmed and with moderately secure locks. It also keeps a couple separate from the rest so if the worst happens and the shed get broken into, there’s a couple that are unlikely to go, and vice versa.
We don’t live in an area renowned for burglary and I’ve never needed to test the insurance response to my theory however. None of them are hugely valuable either, and one of them may even have 26″ wheels! 😯Posted 6 months agonwmlargeSubscriber
This place is super cheap for pedal wall mounts
