    Inside SUV Transport - 15mm qr

    I have 2009 Nissan Xterra and was looking at options for inside bike transport. I usually just put whatever bike I am riding in the back and lay it flat. However, lately, iIhave been finding that I have been carrying multiple bikes (the right tool for the right job i.e. road and mountain when on vacation). For this I bought a Saris bones that works great.

    Now the dilemma. I just threw down serious coin on my next bike, a Santa Cruz Tallboy LT carbon, pimped out. And, my other bikes are also pretty expensive. I really want to transport them inside and use the bones as a last option if I need the space. So, I am was looking at this:

    The only problem is that Tallboy LTc has a 15mm qr fork that will not work on this rack. I saw some aftermarket adapters that can be used with the standard 9mm qr. I wanted to hear from you guys if you have any other options when storing inside an SUV. I can't believe that there isn't a 15mm qr that can actually fit on this tray, especially with so many bikes that have them now.

    Better yet....Hurricane Fork Up. We have in the works a multi adjustable rack that is designed to fit inside an suv or inside a truck bed, with 15mm direct mounts.

    Was looking for this as well. Currently have two cheap universal bike mounts screwed into a 2x4 for standard axle. Works great, no problems with bikes moving for 4 years. Now switched to 15mm thru axle and found this - Evo Fork Mount Truck Bed Bicycle Carrier on Amazon. Can be screwed into 2x4 exact same way. Much cheaper alternative,
