i don't think that'd work....unless you had a bed extender, the bikes wouldn't fit standing up like that

Depends on what type of bike. An XC bike will fit, an All mountain or DH/Freeride bike probably wouldn't.

What about just throwing a shipping blanket over the tailgate and then put the bikes facing the back and hang the front tires over the gate and turn them sideways. I dont have any pictures but this is how my brother and his friends haul their bikes all the time with no problems. They go from LA to Mammoth and Tahoe with the bikes like that.

What i did was took some pressure treated 8x2 and cut it to length accross the two wheel wells. they have a recessed area that a board fits perfectly into. then i got some stainless hardware and bolted some of these http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...r.aspx?sc=FRGL to it. I have carried 3 of every kind of bike immaginable with my short bed and all i have to do is let the tail gate down. Its a really nice system.

if youre interested PM me for pics... im awful at explaining things.

I just use a dakine truck pad. Bikes stay there fine for around town or shuttling downhill runs. On the highway I usually just throw a tie down over them all. At only $70 its a pretty cheap way to do it.

I used those in the past but I have a 25mm Thru axle on my AM bike and taking the wheel off and on doesn't make sense. Takes too long. Actually, having used those little doodads for years I don't like take the wheel off unless I have a flat to fix or service the fork
