    I did, but they are so overpriced for what they are. I somehow ended up a free 15x100 from Amazon. Need to shave a few mm off each side and find some T-Nuts to bolt it to the rail. Also thought about just mounting it to a board like I did with my old Taco and strapping the bike down.

    Dude you have a multi-thousand dollar bike lol. The least you could do is spend $250 on a decent system

    True, the main advantage I see to spending more would be on a locking setup, but I already have a stout cable system. For now, I've already got what I need, just need to slightly modify it to make it work.

    Anyone have a recommendation on a hitch tray rack other than 1Up?

    I know 1Up is the top choice from most everyone, myself included, but I can get any of the other big name brands at about 40%.

    The Yakima dr tray looks pretty nice. If I wasn’t a cheap ass and love the tailgate pad, I’d get that one.

    It does look nice. I think it only accepts 26-29" wheels though. I have kids so I need as much wheel size range as I can get.

    Tailgate pads are nice. I run a topper which make them a little more challenging. I currently run a fork mount on a 2x6 in the bed which is great for security. I'm just getting tired of taking the front wheel off. Yes folks, I know it isn't hard and only takes a few minutes; but I'm tired of it and would like to try a hitch mount.

    @Coot83 Heard you're moving to Scottsdale? That should put you in reach of some good riding!

    Edit: Checked trailforks, North and West Scottsdale is stacked with trails!

    Rocky mounts are not cheep, but they are worth the money. I have the lockable mounts. I got mine from Auto anything i had a discount code.

    Anybody have any experience with the RockyMounts hitch tray racks? Looks like there are some recalls on the SplitRail and MonoRail bases.

    Rocky Mounts Hot Rod thru-axle mounts, mounted onto custom built Baja Rack mounting plates. When I get a chance I'll take some close ups of the set up. The reason for this setup is purely to have free access to the rear of the truck (removing bikes after a day of shredding, ain't nobody got time for that). A second reason I chose to go this route was that I almost always take a dual sport dirt bike with me every where I go. I like to have options.

    I've tried every damn major model there is, except 1Up. The Dr. Tray is the best. It's low weight, high security with manageable locking cables, low profile, tailgate clearance, and most of all adjustability make it a top performer. They may make an adaptor for kids bikes, send them an email.
    All that said, I'm going to sell mine and get the 1Up. None of the models that have the hook in the front work with reverse arch forks like the Manitou, or some other brands like the Cane Creek Helm. Plus they all make contact with the fork body which scratches their surface.
    The 1Up only contacts the tires, is more stout, and lower profile. I also have a deep discount on the major brands, which is why I tried so many. But I'm just going to bite the bullet on this one. My bikes are about $7K-$10K each, I'm more than willing to spend 3% of their value to keep them safe.
