The Load Floor

I got my FiST yesterday and couldn't get the load floor to go to the lower position. Today I took out the spare and noticed that the spare tire is actually larger than the cutout for it and as a consequence it is difficult to lower it into the hole completely level. I think the tire touches the sides, and not the bottom. After adjusting it to a more level position, I was able to get the load floor into the lower position.

One thing I hadn't noticed until today was that the load floor has spring loaded tabs on the sides of the baggage area which will keep it in the up position so you can have access to the lower area without having to hold it up. VERY nice!

I have one of those soft-sided foldable dog crate I use for my 70lb dog in the car, and the crate fits really nice under the load floor when it is in the upper position. This is going to be a very useful feature for me!

Will one bike fit in there with the rear seats folded down? Probably with front wheel off. I have a 29er mountain bike that I current carry on my bike rack connected to my hitch receiver on my current car, but I really don't want a hitch receiver on the Fiesta and those trunk/hatch mounted ones are definitely a no go. I would have liked to test it, but my mountain bike is kinda dirty so the dealer wouldn't have wanted me to put it in their new car.
It should fit fine unless it is huge, my 60cm road bike fits OK with the front wheel off, rear seats down, and the passenger seat fully forward...
