Will the Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier Work with my Mountain Bike?

Question:

Can this carry a 29er XL Giant Fathom mountain bike? The demo showed road bikes, and I have a 5ft bed. Plus, not sure if the skewer will fit.

The Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier part # S64702 is designed to work with the 9mm skewer setups. I am unsure but think that the Giant does use this system. To ensure check the skewer on the front axle and confirm this.

It will work with up to two bike weighing in at 40 lbs. or less so you're in great shape there.

The bed length of 5 foot can put a slight damper on things but worse case scenario the bike will sit slightly angled. We regularly do this up here and it works out really well even for two bikes.
