    fork mount on bed cover - how to secure rear wheel?

    I'm planning to bolt a yakima blockhead to the top of my undercover tonneau (yes, with reinforcements underneath to keep it from ripping through). here's the mount:

    How could I secure the rear wheel down? A short tray with a ratchet strap would be ideal, but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for. It's gotta look clean. Thanks for any help!

    That would look great, but without a crossbar it would have to be bolted directly to the bed cover and couldn't pivot to fit bikes of different sizes. Just a little restrictive, but that's the idea.

    Any other solutions?

    Just leave it loose in the bed when traveling, it will not jump out.

    If theft is an issue or concern, just put it in the cab when you are not there. Makes it that much harder to ride away should they manage to free the bike.
