    Fork mount and suv?

    Anyone traveling w your bikes in the back of an suv? Interested in mounting fork mounts in the back, maybe to a 2x4 running across the back. Anybody seen similar or better setups? Pics always appreciated. Thanks

    Lots of setups here with guys just putting fork mounts on a 2x4 or 2x6. Unfortunately "Search" is on the fritz, I'm finding it will only go back 2 days, even with terms like "rack", which we know should have a billion results in this forum.

    Here's one I found searching with Google. We plan to do something simular with our new-to-us mini van this next summer for a couple of longer trips

    good link, adam728. like that link shows, make sure to offset the mounts a little, or rotate them slightly, so you can put the bikes close to each other without handlebar interference.

    if you want to see a jillion more, go to elementownersclub.com and search. i know there are lots of them there just like you are envisioning. of course, any good suv forum would probably have the same.
