I use the SL3 version for canoe camping, so being the next size up its a little bigger. I can say that none of my bicycles would fit - well maybe my mountain bike might but it wouldn't be easy and it would have to be laying down on a side. Technically with a good multi tool and some work yeah, any bike could be made to fit. The Emerald Mountain is a great tent, I've lived out of mine for extended periods and it has weathered some nasty weather. If it has one drawback its the height. There is only enough for sitting up; maybe that low profile is what keeps it so wind proof. Great floor space and the vestibule is huge but I think it would be tough to get a bike in there without a lot of work.
I have this Kelty Noah's Tarp thing thats really lightweight, goes up easy and covers my bike (and other stuff) when I need it to. It can be staked to the ground just about totally covering the bike. Maybe something like that might suffice? Good luck finding the right solution.
