    20mm axle and a fork mount in truck bed?

    Just picked up a big bike and it has a (new to me) 20mm axle on the front. I have a pick-up and have always dropped my bike forks onto some fork mounts bolted to a 2x6 in the bed.
    IS there something that works with the big axle? Maybe its to much of a pain to take off every time but for bigger road trips I would break it down. Thanks

    Fork up

    Folks on another thread put me on to this when I had a similar question. Very nice design.

    I built this for my bike. The bike lives in the back of my truck. I also have a forkup for use on other people's racks.

    Their mount looks nice, but it wouldn't work in my situation. Too tall for my bike to fit under my shell.

    bolt it sideways!

    bolt the Flytrap onto the side of some 2x4 so the handle is facing up and the hinge drops down so the bike can fit under the shell. Then fix the 2x4 to the truck bed or hold the 2x4 with some bungees or cargo straps.

    Does anyone know how tall the flytrap (bolt-on version) is? I have looked everyone and can't a detailed information sheet that divulges the information.
