Bikes banned from peak trains?

First Great Western has published its timetable from 20th May onwards. (Available here: symbols explained here.)

Though times from Charlbury appear little changed, one unwelcome change is the introduction of an (X) symbol above the morning services at 6.47, 7.29 and 8.34 - indicating that bikes are not allowed on these services. The 7.29 and 8.34 are HSTs with a spacious 'guard's van' area traditionally used by Charlbury commuters to store their bikes.

The same symbol has also appeared on the evening trains leaving London at 5.22, 5.52 and 6.22.
