Interesting you removed your front wheels. Was that by choice or necessity? I ride a large Giant road bike and it fits in the Sienna without removing the front wheel. I have to lean it to put it in, but then it stands upright once inside. The second row seats have to be push all the way up, but at least I don't have to remove them. I'm still waiting to get the Pacifica, but expected the bikes to fit without removing wheels. I guess I better take my bike to test it's fit.
That red bike and the light green one hidden by the canvas cover are Electra Townies. They are great bikes for easy casual riding, especially designed for "flat foot" standing while stopped. They are tall, but still can be put in the van with the front wheels on. I take them off for long, loaded trips because the handlebars can be turned 90 degrees with the wheels off. With the pedals removed the two bikes can be snugged together and strapped to the interior of the van. This leaves lots of room for other stuff.
