"Interesting (but I have no room for it). What size bike do you/can you squeeze into the box? That might help other people figure out if it would be a workable solution for their needs."

"maxy, super maxy, mighty competition, super mighty competition, grand mighty (75?)..any others?" that's from a bikeforums thread. it seems like there are tons of variants on 'mighty' 'grand' etc. their model names are so grandiose.
