(edit: Just saw the other thread. No, this isn't ADV's new MT1000 - this is my old MT1000 One of these days someone will take our picture and I'll get it in the C'dale thread.)
This is hardly rocket science, but it might give someone an idea.
(it works for me)
Clearance for cables, and the chain just clears on the side.
Plain rubber bumpers. Something softer might be desirable, but these seem to be pretty weather resistant.
It's removable for access to hold-down bolts, with some drain holes around the perimeter.
I don't even really need to tie it down to keep the bike in there, but I can't imagine not having at least one redundant means of securing the bike to the rack.
Fortunately I was able to borrow the 3" hole saw, a drill press, and the ABS adhesive, so I got off cheap.
If ever we get a canoe or a kayak, this might be a quick way to make some uprights to get it above the cab (providing it doesn't snap off when it gets too tall). With the load bars spaced that way, it fits any of our single bikes, a different style bike tray for the Lefty forks and 15 and 20mm front axles that some of my buddies have, and a Thule roof pod for more dry storage. Not sure how much of that will all fit at the same time, but I think 4 bikes and the pod would be possible.
I still need a cool way to carry wheels. I'm starting to think it will be made of black ABS pipe!
