    Thinking about getting a tonneau cover but need to transport my bikes too. I would like to see the setup some of you guys are using. Please post your pics.

    Sorry for the possibly dumb question, but do they make the Undercover for my 1st gen (2000)?

    Also, anyone point me to a good place to order one?

    Thanks!

    ^^^^That's sick.

    I'd love to do something like this, but it's so expensive. Tracks + landing pads + control towers + cross bars + bike racks = over $600 for yakima gear. I like the idea of a fork mount like this bolted directly to the tonneau.

    http://www.yakima.com/shop/bike/truck-bed/locking-blockhead

    It would need serious reinforcement underneath to keep it from ripping through, which is doable. What I can't figure is how to secure the rear wheel. A short tray section with a ratchet strap would be ideal, but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. Any other ideas for a clean looking tie down method for the rear wheel?

    I'm in the same boat. I was either thinking of getting an entire rack system, but that could add up to as much if not more than the bike (depending on the bike). I like Abe's suggestion with putting the blockhead directly to the cover, but i have three fears... 1) leaking, 2) could it rip though (as mentioned), and 3) securing my rear wheel (also mentioned) The first two could be fixed if done right, but securing the wheel seems to be the hardest part. Any suggestions?

    softopper.com has a good use of space design for their bike racks.
