    575 / tailgate pad

    I was thinking I'd start using a tailgate pad on my truck to get my 575 to/from trailheads. It's a combination of laziness and getting sick of untangling tie-downs when carrying multiple bikes. Anyone have any issues with the cables on the downtube rubbing when tailgate shuttling their 575? Any elegant solutions?

    I did not have any issues with my Yeti Asr 5, 303r and DJ bikes, and that is the only way I have ever carried them.

    Oh, I did put some clear 3m tape between the cables and the frame just to save the paint.

    I used helicopter tape on the frame to prevent scratching...it's way tough. My wife also sewed a cool quilt with a huge YETI Cycles on it to put over the tailgate. Very cool, but a blatant trademark infringement. Maybe I'll market the idea to Yeti and make millions, or maybe they'll sue me and take the $10 that's left in my bank account.
