Transporting your bikes...
« on: July 08, 2007, 10:12:32 AM »
So, what do you transport your bikes with?

In anticipation of being out near the trails more often I traded in my '04 suburban for an '07 Dodge Ram Quad Cab yesterday.  I figured I needed more room to transport the bike and other accessories.  Now I am officially ready to roll!

How do you transport your bikes to the trails?

I bought a Yakima hitch rack, that way I can store all my gear/cooler in the bed of the truck.

That's awesome.  How are the bikes mounted in the back?

Bolted to one of these

You might have to get creative but I used this same system on my f-350

I took a 2x4 and bolted it width wise up through the bedliner of my truck.  Then I did exactly what Beercan does with the QR traps.

I bolt my bike to the top of this and throw the front tire in the back:


My wife just ordered herself a new bike, so I'm adding another Thule carrier and finally bolting up a fairing to cut down on the wind noise.
