    Bike rack for pick ups

    We have a 98 Chevy S10 with no hitch. Is there some kind of bike rack or bike holder to put in the bed of the truck. I do not want to lay both of our 600+ bikes to lay ontop of eachother.

    We cannot hang on the tailgate.

    Any suggestion

    Check out post 16 in that thread--this is one of the more sensible options for a small bed.

    I have a 2006 Ford Ranger and use the Topline Unigrip which I already mentioned. It's not a bad option, can hold two bikes, and is cheap... worth checking out.

    We used to have a Ranger lasted a month :-(

    We are most likely to build a simple rack out of wood to fit more than 2. We have 2 friends who wants to join us for a leisure ride at times. :-)

    As you mentioned, just get a 2x12, and mount some fork mounts to it. Or maybe the PVC DIY rack.

    Woohoo, built our rack out of PVC pipes. So much easier and lighter. Simple and light weight. We are off to get spray paint.

    I posted before this we built one out of pvc pipes. I know that google is powerful and it was nice to get input from members and get to know them.

    I just bolted a couple Biketights to a board. Used this is a PU bed too. When I don't need it it comes out and the mounts stay dry and rust free, plus they don't get stolen.

    Well unfortunatly we never got to use the pvc bike rack. The engine blew in our pick up 2 weeks after buolding it. We now use it as our bike stand.
