    Glad to see someone has this mount setup... Made my own custom mounts at work for my Transition TA 29er on my X-runner that got T-boned last week so I'm in the market for a new Taco... glad to see that i wont be able to really use my mounts if the bike only fits in at an angle..

    Here you go. BTW, the bed rail uses the factory holes and bolts (T30)

    Hope you're alright, no one likes a broken Taco, but broken people are worse!

    I have to provide a slight clarification for you:
    I'm 6'3 and run an XL frame Specialized Fuse 6Fattie.
    My fork mount also sticks out a good 3.5-4". The thru-axle is at the very front of my fork. All of this combined pushes the bike back towards the tailgate.
    I've set the bike in the bed with the front fork pressed against the front wall, and the rear tire only has to be moved over only about 3".
    Smaller framed bikes do fit in short bed trucks, some tighter than others...

    My "road" bike uses a standard fork mount that only protrudes 1.5" from the bed rail, and then the opening in the fork is basically center, which pulls the bike forward slightly compared to the 6fattie.

    This bike fit in my 2nd gen TRD OR (short bed),but I'm yet to try it in the 3rd gen SB.

    I just ordered the KB Voodoo bed rail (for factory tonneau covers) because I plan on keeping the tonneau on most of the time, so I'll keep the bike on top of the bed as opposed to in it. I'll be mounting the fork mount straight down to keep the overall height to a minimum.

    Just leave the tailgate down when the bike is in the bed

    Somehow misplaced the few pics I took of my Titus Motolite but in some sober and better illuminated moment I'll snap a few more.

Here's a build list of what is on it

    Ergon grips
    Grip shift 3x9
    Paul Love cable Levers/BB7 brakes, Avid CS 185F/160R discs, I-link cables
    Edge Carbon fiber bars and seat post

    Wtb LaserV Ti saddle
    Amoeba seat post qr
    Pushed Fox Float RP23
    Truvativ Noir GXP 22/32 w/ BBG CF bash ring, Crank Bros TI pedals w/HD Ti spindles
    Enduron XD-15 BB

    SRAM XO rd
    Shimano XTR Ti 11/32 fh
    Gorilla tubeless WTB Laserdisc Trail rims with wolverine race 2.2f/ Kenda small block 8 2.1r
    Every bolt including QR's is Ti.
    DIY quad led bar light frame mounted cells w/thumb switch
    DIY triple led helmet light pack mounted cells w/shoulder strap switch
    Dakine Nomad hydration

    My taco has a ways to go to catch up on mods.

    I'd honestly be down for that.

    Did some quick google math. Missoula to SLC is 8hrs, and SLC to Tahoe is 8 hrs. Wanna carpool?

    The N+1 Struggle is real! I'm gonna scoop up a HT before too long, just gotta find one for a decent price. This whole bike thing is killing my house savings plan...

    My size Large 29-er (Santa Cruz Tallboy) fits in the DCSB bed straight, tailgate up, with fork mounts similar to yours, mounted on a board on the floor at the front of the bed.

    I live within an hour of something like 1000 miles of singletrack...Pretty sure we could find something...Tear up all the park city trails, then hit a park laps day at Canyons and Deer Valley.

    and when the snow gets here, its only 4 hours to Moab, Grand Junction, and Hurricane. A few friends and I rode SLC, Grand Junction, Durango AND MOAB all in a 3 day weekend before.

    It was! But riding Durango and Moab with a few cracked ribs and 8 stitches in my leg (Crashed hard in GJ on Ribbon) was less than amusing.

    So was my very concerned mother...but I didn't do all of that driving to be shuttle bitch the rest of the weekend, so yeah, I rode. Plus the Durango ride was for the iron horse race, and I wasn't going to pass up racing through a brewery and getting beer handups mid-ride!

    Just put some fork mounts on top of the tonneau with a 1” aluminum bar underneath for stability. I’ve had 3 adult bikes on top through the WV mountains with no movement 89259CDA-DFC6-47AE-85E1-8809A3473404.jpg
