    DIY - QR rack for pick-up

    Here's a cheap way to set up a bike rack for QR wheels in a pick up with utili-track (or equivalent).

    After digging through odd bolts, nuts and washers, it took <5 minutes to set up.

    I had a a metal piece laying around which came with holes (fortunately they were spaced exactly as needed). Had a couple 1.5" bolts laying around and large washers.

    Set everything up prior to sliding in to the utili-track. I had to insert the bolts on the inside of the track since the head was lower profile than the nuts. So from inside out it was in the following order, bolt facing outwards, lip of utili-track, large washer to keep 'rack' stable then the fork block rack and lastly the nut.
