over compressing the suspension on the bike is not good . there are easy ways to hook straps so they don't come off , zip ties, bungee cords , straps with hook locks , etc . The biggest problem is having the rear of the bike slide out . simple fix with a couple 2x4 about 12" long on each side of the rear wheel
