Quickest way to set up the tent, release the front tire of your bike and insert the pitchfork stake into the fork connectors, stab it into the ground, then lift the head of the tent up, strap the Velcro attachments onto the handlebars, then at the rear of tent, unzip the zipper backing for the wheel cargo area, tuck your front tire inside, zip it back up, yank the overhanging nylon flap over the upright tire until it is taut, and stake it to the ground. Basically at this point the tent is set up, with only the need of more stakes in the ground to maintain its stability. If it's raining, it's very easy and quick to throw the rain tarp over the tent and is very comfortable.
Inside the tent, there isn't much room. When packing, bring a foam pad or thermorest, rather than a blow up mattress. I recommend a long ALPS Mountaineering Lightweight Series Self-Inflating Air Pad, although this pad is HEAVY on a bike. It fits perfectly inside the tent.
Also the rain tarp can conveniently cover items above a pannier rack while riding so they don't get wet if you bunch it tight and hold it with bungee cords, and another plus, it has a high visibility.
A couple cons for the tent. This tent does not have very good airflow. It has vents on the sides that can be unzipped to allow flow but they are small. No room for storing your gear, i ended up leaving most of my things outside in waterproof bags. Setting the tent up for the day is a commitment because it takes your bike away for the rest of the day. The included stakes are poor quality and they bend easily in hard ground.
I did weather a severe storm in this tent. While other people suffered broken poles or tents that blew away, mine was rock solid with no apparent damage.
Something i highy recommend is making a ground cover that goes under the tent out of an old tarp to protect against punctures and wear and tear on the bottom of the tent. Overall i still believe this is a great tent and I look forward to using it again.
