Bed Bike Rack for a 2020 Ram 1500 With a 57 bed


My truck bed does not have a liner, it will have a Line-X spray-in bed liner and Line-X hard folding cover that will fold up against the cab before this winter. I have a traditional diamond frame Specialized mountain bike with a suspension fork 1990s vintage Rockhopper, my wife an Electra Townie Step-Thru with a suspension fork. Both bikes are too long to fit in the bed with the gate up without being angled the Townie is about 5inch longer than the Rockhopper. My questions: 1 is there a no-drill way for me to carry ONLY the Rock Hopper in the bed, with both wheels mounted and the gate closed, and 2 is there a no-drill way for me to carry BOTH bikes with wheels mounted and the gate closed? Im not a fan of the tailgate pad method of transporting bikes. Since the bed cover will be folded up against the cab rear window, I want to keep my rear camera view. Thank you! Pics are not our bikes, but identical models.

That is a great question and I have a solution.

I recommend Thule Insta-Gater Pro Truck Bed Bike Rack - 1 Bike Item # TH93VR.
You can lock your back wheel in the rack with your front wheel slightly turned against the bulkhead of the 2020 Ram 1500. Adding a second one you can fit both bikes in the bed of the truck with the tailgate closed and without having to remove the front wheels.
