    Transport

    is there a easy cheap way to transport a bike in the back of a pick up without laying it down, I saw a pic of a couple of guys with the front wheels hanging over the tail gate with a blanket covering the tail gate would that work. I know this may sound dumb but I am just curious.

    Take a plank of wood and bolt a fork mount like this http://www.ebikestop.com/pyramid_bic...ount-45347.php (or two or three) into it. If you don't want to take your wheel off try a coupla tie downs like skip says. I just don't like the hanging over the gate thing, I like some stability and no contact with the vehicle's exterior paint.

    the front tire over the tail gate is usually for short distances. ie... shuttlers.

    cheapest way would be tie downs. about 15-20 for a set of ties.

    you can buy custom bike mounts for your truck or make them yourself as suggested above.
