    need a bike rack for Surly Pugsley

    I am a new owner of a Puglsey, and i drive a Honda Odyssey. Typically, i can put my road bike inside the van, but now with a muddy Pugsley, i need a rack so i dont have to put the bike inside the van.

    i am looking for platform hitch similar to this:
    http://www.orsracksdirect.com/yakima...k-8002419.html

    but i dont this will fit 4" wheels as indicated on the site.

    is there a differene between a frame mount hitch and wheel platform hitch?

    thanks in advanced.

    ... just have to let air out of the pugs tires to make it work. I would be surprised if anybody makes a rack that holds the wheels at all that could actually accommodate a tire that big.

    Not the end of the world. Just take a tire pump with you.

    You can use a Hurricane Fork Up made especially for the Pugsleys 135mm fork spacing. The Fork Up mounts to fork mounted rack system that you may already have.

    Rain gutter

    I know this is a dead thread, but I'll give my $.02 anyway. Many people use rain gutter attached to the rack in order to accomodate fat tires.

    I use the Hurricane Fork-Up and a nylon lashing strap to hold the back wheel onto the standard tray. Zero issues. Search the Fatbike forum for all sorts of solutions

    The stock Mukluck fits OK on my Yakima HoldUp. Minimal engagement on the rear wheel ratchet strap, Easily backed-up with a velcro strap.

    Uh, Didn't I add this pic of my 1Up carrying a Pug? It fits right on if you let some air out of the tires. They also make some adapters that let the arms expand wider to fit the tires without letting air out.

    1UpUSA also makes a roof rack tray version.
