Any carrier where you have to remove the front wheel is too much work IMO.

Try doing it with a lefty fork. And I can cut your cable and straps and be gone with your bike in no time. Try that with my rocky mounts.

Also I can have the bike loaded or unloaded while your still trying to untangle your straps

I was using a fork mount on the back bed rail but now that I have a toneau cover I am using a Thule hitch 4 bike carrier. I prefer the ford mount but I love the Thule rack as now I have more room in my box. I'll post pictures tonight

Take the reflectors and pie plate off. It looks novice.

Get out to the trails, how many serious riders do you see with their bike strapped like that? None, because they have a holder of some sort because it's easier, and there's less risk of the bike coming loose.

With that strap setup if the wheels shifted the bike could fall over, granted the bed had grooves, but it could happen.

I also wouldn't want to have my shocks compressed like that just transporting the bike.

1. Shocks aren't compressed
2. Bike has never fallen over even high speeds on bumpy roads, extremely stable
3. Don't assume you know what kind of rider I am
3. I asked a question about the rocky mounts because I was curious not because I give a shit what you use.
4. Pie plate and reflectors? Do they affect your riding? I doubt it and I could give a shit if their still on. I suppose I could take them off so I "look like" a "real" rider. I like to look like I don't know what I'm doing that way when fools assume they end up looking like asshats

Bed bar with fork mounts:

I like using this setup because I can lock it. Its no fort knox, but its enough to keep the honest people honest when I'm in 7-11 buying chimichangas and 40's of PBR lol.

It takes 10 seconds to remove your front tire, lift the bike into the bed align the fork run your axle through the mount and tighten it down? Impressive. And to boot you have no bed storage left because you have to rig the front tyres somewhere.

(To each their own) but look at the benefits of a hitch mount:
rack the bike by the top tube
keep both tyres mounted
full access to the bed
no storage loss in bed
rack up to 4 bikes
lockable (frames only)
fully lockable (with a cable lock)

I like the rocky mounts cause I have a short bed. Even with the front tire off, my 29er barely fits. Plus its easier to load our 3 bikes in the bed without having to deal with all that strapping.
