  • Do I Need An Adapter To Carry My RadRover 6 Plus With A Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for Truck Beds
  • I spoke with someone from RadRover about your forks axle length and I have one solution and I might have a second solution. My recommendation would be to get the Kuat Dirtbag Phat 9 Fat Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Bolt On - 9 mm Quick-Release Skewer, part # DRT9P. It is designed for fat tire bikes with 9mm quick release skewers. It is a permanent mount, so if you do not want to install it directly to your truck bed, you could probably affix two of them to a 2 X 4. If you are not interested...

  • WIll Swagman Patrol 2-Bike Rack Skewers Lock With Thru-Axle Adapter
  • Thanks for the purchase! It sounds like you are asking if the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for Truck Beds - Fork Mount # S64701 skewers will still lock your bikes to the rack if you are using the Swagman The Boost 110 Thru-Axle Adapter # S64719. The answer to that is yes, your bikes will still be locked to the rack using that adapter. The rack is also going to be locked to your truck so you have double the security. I've added a link to a video review for you to check out as well.

  • Why Doesn't Kuat Dirtbag Phat 9 Fat Bike Rack # DRT9P Come with Skewer

  • Adapter Needed to Mount Bike with Disc Brakes to RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack
  • It sounds like you need an adapter like the RockyMounts StreetRod 12-mm and 15-mm Thru-Axle Adapter # RKY10941 so that you can mount your bike with disc brakes to the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack # RKY1097. This adapter comes with 3 interchangeable axle sleeves for bikes with 12-mm, 15-mm, and Boost 15-mm thru axles. If you have something else please let me know what it is and I can see what we have that will work.

  • How to Carry Three Bikes With Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2-Bike Carrier
  • It's super easy to put a third bike on the Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2-Bike Carrier # S64702. All you need to do is add an extra fork mount, the Replacement Fork Mount for Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2-Bike Carrier # SP484. Even though the title says "Replacement" it can also be used to easily add a third bike to this mount. The carrier does lock to your truck, though I do highly recommend securing the investments you made in your bikes by locking them to the carrier...

  • Connecting my 9mmx135mm Bike to a Track Mount Bike Rack for Truck Beds
  • I have a solution but the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack for Truck Bed Factory Track Systems part # RKY1097 does not have an adapter to allow you to connect your 9mmx135mm skewer. Instead you can use the RockyMounts DriveShaft Track Truck Bed Bike Rack part # RKY1086 and the Phat 9 Fat Bike Adapter Kit for Kuat Trio part # TRP9. This will install on your bike then allow you to clamp this dummy axle into the Driveshaft securing your bike. Check out the video below on it.

  • Are L Brackets Removable on Swagman Claw S64700 and Alternate Mounting Options
  • I do have another option for you, but the only way to mount the The Claw Fork Mount Bike Carrier # S64700 is on 5-1/4 mounting hole centers. The ends of the center barrel are not removable. Also, there is not enough space to allow for the brackets to face one another on the inside. A similar fork mount bike carrier that also works with 9mm bike axles is the Hollywood Racks Truck Bed Bike Carrier # HRT970, which mounts on 3" centers instead, as shown in the attached photo. I have attached...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2019 Ford F-150
  • For your 2019 Ford F-150 I highly recommend the Thule Bed-Rider 2 Bike Rack # TH822XTR because of its ease of installation and unique versatility. The carrier itself simply clamps to the bed rails on your F-150 to provide a secure attachment to the bike's 9mm quick release front-wheel-skewers. No drilling or permanent mounting is required. The integrated lock also helps to protect your investments when the bikes are left unattended. A great thing about this carrier is that it can also...

If you have the BAK Revolver X4 Hard Roll-Up Tonneau Cover # BAK27ZR on your 2020 Ford F-150 you'll need the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A4000946 as it is the only option that will work with your tonneau cover. Now that we have that, let's take care of your kayaks. I would use two of the eTrailer Kayak Carriers # e98878 as they are super simple yet very functional!

In fact, we even tested the older Thule GateMate Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack on this model which was the same size and I have attached that video for you. I would be a bit caution of looking for measurements online as you never really know where they are taken. That said, I appreciate you doing your own research but there is no need to worry about this one as the Thule...

  • Can RockyMounts DriveShaft Track Truck Bed Bike Rack # RKY1086 Fit Below Tonneau
  • If your tonneau cover is over the top of the bed rails the RockyMounts bike rack part # RKY1086 would easily have the clearance needed. As you can see in the picture I attached it sits a couple inches below the top of the bed rails. Since every tri-fold tonneau I can think of sits on top of the bed rails you'd have the needed clearance easily.

  • Can Thule GateMate Pro be Used to Carry Fat Tire e-Bikes
  • The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO will fit your 2016 Toyota Tundra and really just adds some padding to your tailgate and a way to keep your bikes from bouncing around your truck bed. Basically as long as your e-Bikes can fit over your tailgate this pad will work for you!

Instead, you can use the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # INRT201 depending on the weight of your bike but these are the only truck bed mounted options that will work for your bike without removing the wheel. Please note, if you have RamBoxes then your best and really only option for the truck bed would be the Thule GateMate...

  • Is The Kuat Dirtbag Bike Rack Threaded
  • The Kuat Dirtbag Bike Rack # DRT12x100 that you referenced is not threaded. This is a hollow tube that will allow the fork to rest on either side. When mounting the bike you will use the skewer that comes with your fork to secure it to the Dirtbag. It is designed for 100-mm thru-axle front-wheel forks. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Best Truck Bed Bike Rack For 2020 Chevy Colorado
  • I recommend 2 sets of the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds - Clamp On part # INRT201 for the bed of the 2020 Chevy Colorado. The Inno Gripper does not require cutting the bed liner in the new truck (if the truck has a bed liner) like with other truck bed bike rack options. It also comes with protective plates for the top of your bed rails to protect the paint. The Inno grips the bikes by their frame so you will not have to worry about taking the front wheel off every time you...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for Norco Bigfoot Bike
  • Due to the very large tires and forks on your Norco Bigfoot the truck bed bike rack I recommend is the Topline 2 Bike Carrier part # UG2500 which attaches to the bed rail and then grabs the bike by the top tube to secure it in the bed. This alleviates the challenge of trying to find a fork mount that fits your larger setup and gives you a really nice rack for securing your bikes so it is an overall really great option.

  • How To Carry 80 Lb E-Bike In Truck Bed of 2016 Toyota Tacoma with Deck Rail System
  • The Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # INRT202 has a weight capacity of 33 lbs so it would not work with an 80 lb e-bike unless the battery was removed. Instead, for a 2016 Toyota Tacoma with deck rail system I recommend the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack for Compact Trucks part # TH823PRO. The tailgate pad is really the only option save for a hitch mounted bike rack due to the weight of the bike.

  • What Length of Cable Lock to Use with Thule GateMate Tailgate Bike Rack

  • Will Thule GateMate Pro Fit a 2017 Honda Ridgeline and is it Waterproof
  • Yes, the 53" Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad # TH823PRO will fit your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. The top part of this pad is definitely waterproof. It feels like a heavy duty vinyl and it is very durable. The underside has a soft fabric that is designed to keep the finish on your truck from getting damaged. If you were to drive in a rainstorm with this on the pickup then that would definitely soak up water and you'd want to take it off and let it air dry. So the GateMate isn't necessarily...

  • Good, Better and Best Option To Carry Bikes In Bed of 2019 Ram 1500 With RamBox
  • I do have an option for you but Thule Bed-Rider 2 part # TH822XTR and Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # S64701 will not fit into the bed with the Rambox. Both the Swagman Patrol and Bed Rider clamp to the bed rails so the ram boxes and the possibly the rail system would be damaged if you tried to use the racks. I do not recommend cutting them because that could affect the structural integrity of the rack. If you are okay with drilling into the bed, I recommend 2 of RockyMounts...

  • Can I Use the Thule Low-Rider Bike Rack to Carry a Triathlon Bike with Carbon Frame

  • Locking Truck Bed Rack For 12mm Through Axle Bike
  • We do have a rack that will work with your 12mm thru axle bike but the Thule Bed Rider # TH822XTR isn't the best option for you. I would get the Swagman Patrol 2 # S64701 and then the 12 mm Thru-Axle Adapter # S64718. This set up will lock your bikes keeping them secure. I like these type of racks because you can remove it from the bed whenever you're not using it unlike bolt on racks like the Kuat DirtBag # DRT15. I've included a video to show you the Patrol 2 in action!

  • No Drill Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Tundra with Tonneau

Check out the review video I attached. None of the bed rail style of bike racks will fit with the tonneau cover rails which is why I recommended against that route.

  • Could Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Single Bike Rack # TH93VR be Used in Van Interior
  • You could install the Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Single Bike Rack # TH93VR in the interior of a van if you wanted to. It would install there just like it would in the bed of a truck. Basically you just need to close the anchors in the rear doors, ratchet them down, and it will be held there securely. I attached an install video that shows how it works for more info as well.

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2015 GMC Canyon with OEM Vinyl Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
  • I have a solution for you but the Swagman # S64702, will not work with a OEM soft tonneau cover. I would instead recommend the Thule Insta-Gater Pro Truck Bed Bike Rack # TH93VR or a truck tailgate pad like the Thule # TH823PRO. Due to the mounting design of the OEM soft roll-up tonneau cover, you would not be able to mount the Swagman Bike bar. It would need to supported by a flat support on both the top and the inner side of the bed rail, see attached image, and most soft tonneaus...

  • Compatibility of RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack and Roll Up Tonneau Cover

For instance, the Extang BlackMax # EX2840 will work perfectly with this combination. The tonneau connects to the factory track system, so the clamp locations are the only spots along that track that won't work, but the tonneau will sit well above the bike rack so there is not interference at any other point. If you let me know...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Top of Hard Tonneau Cover
  • If you have a quick release front wheel on your bike, you can use a SeaSucker Talon, part # 298-BT1004 to mount the bike to the roof of your cab or on a smooth, solid plastic tonneau cover. The Talon uses a unique vacuum cup system to mount to any smooth surface and lets you quickly dismount the bike as you need, and throw the rack inside your vehicle with no need for a roof rack or other carrier.

  • What Type of Bike Rack to Use on Truck with Tonneau Cover

The Swagman part # S64701 would interfere with the tonneau since it would be putting pressure on the setup. Check out the review video I attached for this rack as well.

But that is not really going to be necessary because there are bike racks that are made to be used in a truck bed. For example if your 2008 Chevy Silverado does not have the cargo management rails on the bed sides you could use Topline rack # UG2500-3 for 3 bikes and you would not have to remove any of the bike wheels. Or if you want a fork mount you could use the...
