The modern S stock on the Met, District, Circle and the Hammersmith and district are articulated so there is space between the carriages which I have done, or by one of the grab poles in the middle , there is plenty of room for passengers to get around the bike.What bothers me most about the prospect of taking a full size bike on the Tube is where in the carriage to put it. Across a door is so awkward and so is across several seats. Folk who have done it - where did you put the bike?
You can't take bikes anywhere on the real "tube", ie deep level. Even though as i student me and a mate once took a full size table.District is subsurface with full-size cars. Can't imagine it would be much fun on actual Tube trains.
Blue Hills, where do you put your bike on Overground trains? I took mine from West Croydon to Dalston Junction recently and kept it against the end of the end carriage where it blocked one seat completely and one partly. It could have stayed against a standing seat and projected across part of the doorway because I knew that Dalston Junction is the first stop where the doors open on the right on that route. On other routes and when there are already people in those seats I am not sure where I could put the bike.You can't take bikes anywhere on the real "tube", ie deep level.

Have used allowed lines a fair bit, no great problem. As vickster says, the overground is very handy during permissable hours. The overground network is actually very extensive these days.
