    The Kopish
    I just purchased a new 2013 Fit Sport and am loving it so far. We are just starting to thaw out in Wisconsin, so I need to figure out how to haul my bike. I saw the pictures on this thread, which actually got me to look at the Fit in the first place. I have Yakima gear for a rack but will need to towers. Otherwise, I like the idea of a fork mount in the rear. Has anyone tried something like the Yakima Beddy Jo of similar (such as this:http://www.jensonusa.com/!5HBo9s7lqw...r-Truck-Rack)? Otherwise I might need to fabricate something on my own.

    You don't need anything fancy to fab up. Either get a fork mount like this:

    Bicycle Skewer Fork Wheel Pickup Truck Bed Mount Rack Carrier New | eBay

    And bolt it on a 2x6. Or, even easier still, I just use two of these:

    HDX 6 ft. x 1 in. Locking Tie-Downs (4-Pack)-FH8381 at The Home Depot

    and strap down ends of the handlebar with the front wheel off (fork just on the floor). Works great for me. You can get 2 or 3 bikes sitting in there like that (maybe more?).
