    what are you using for the fork? I saw that fatbikes.com sells an adapter of some sort. Any thoughts on that?

    I did something similar, but bolted the adapters to the rack. I have been wondering where a fella could find to straps and buckles.

    I made something similar and used old snowboard binding straps. May even be cheaper to find some old rollerblades and use the straps off them. I did front and rear trays. Just had to make a plastic piece to hold the side of the tire though - had crazy winds enough that it pushed the big tire to the side which enabled the bike to sort of start to lay over... kinda freaky to have happen on the highway!

    Great idea with the Rollerblades! I am guessing goodwill or garage sale hunting is in order.
