    Nope. Don't tie down my back tire and it rides just fine and stays very stable.

    No problem. I bought mine on sale at Realtruck.com for $269. But I think typically they sell on there for $289. Shipping was free as well if I remember right. Good luck.

    I would check out an Ibis Mojo 3. IMO, DW link is the best suspension design out there. Or even the HD3.

    Ibis Mojo 3 is the best bike I've ever ridden/owned. The newer version of the DW link is way above. It's a great overall bike without any sacrifice. And you also get a plus+ bike in 650b (27.5"). Fast snappy bike even with the plus tires in. Love it!!

    It's not the cheapest bike, yes, but you're paying for some small company quality and craftsmanship. I'd give them a call for sure. Who knows? They may have ex-demo's or something that could get you onto one at a lower price.

    My buddy was looking into those. After your referral I checked out some reviews. Sounds like a bad ass bike. Not sure if it will fit my needs in the travel department. The Bronson has what i think will do the job on some bigger stuff. For a back up my favorite type of riding is the more technical and fast the better. My friend is under the impression that the plus size tire makes up the travel difference. What are your thoughts? P.s. sorry to overload..

    Has anyone figured out a way to use the hitch mounted bike racks without setting off the rear sensors?

    I ride a carbon expert 6Fattie 650b+. It has 150mm front and 135mm rear. I like the plus tires so I can pick any line I want to run. It is a very forgiving bike. I am a SS guy at heart, but have been pulling this bike off the wall more consistently than I thought I would. I live in SW Colorado, so I ride a wide variety of trials including bike parks. So far, the bike handles it all.

    I turn off the backup sensors. I have not noticed if it sets off BSM sensor. I dont rack often though. I use a tailgate pad 95% of the time.

    For anyone still looking for a solution to keep your tailgate from hitting the wheel trays on your hitch mounted rack, I found one. I bought a Meyer 2" dropper extension (FHK45058 Receiver Hitch Extension with 2" Drop/Rise) for $70, which seems crazy steep but it was the only thing I could find short of getting a new rack. It pushes the rack far enough back that you can fully lower the tailgate on the Yakima Holdup without hitting the wheel trays, and when you pull the pin to tilt the rack back, it's low enough that you can open the window on your topper without taking the inside bike off the rack. Note that the 2" drop is not enough on its own to prevent the tailgate from hitting the rack - it's still too high - and it only misses the tailgate because it's far enough back. The rack sits a bit farther back than I would like, but it beats the alternative of getting a farther dropper and having the bar so low off the bumper that it could scrape the ground. I got the BOLT 7023584 5/8" Receiver Lock for Toyota Keys, which hasn't showed up yet but seems like a good and secure solution for holding the rack in the receiver but sticking with the factory key.

    For those of you that have the bed pads, did find any sites that did a good comparison between brands? I've got a Taco on order and will be going the bed pad route (I also have a Kuat rack but it's a 1.25" receiver so I need to get a 2" I believe - I'd rather not deal with a converter) so I'd be curious to see where you went. I've checked places like MTBR but there doesn't seem to be a place where they compare pads against each other.

    Go Race Face without question. They have straps (like many other pads) but also have slots that keep the fork held in place for a even more secure trip. And, the smaller option fits my 2nd gen tailgate perfectly. I've never had to put more than 4 bikes in, so I space them out a little more, but there's room if you need it.IMG_5579.jpg

    They all really do a great job but i recommend getting something with straps. I went from the yakima to the Dakine. I like that Dakine gives you more design options, there are so many black ones out there...
