    Promaster Van bike rack

    Bought a Promaster van and have been trying to come up with a bike carrying solution. In every day mode I can just carry them inside, but out of town trips with the bed in eliminates that option. Tried a hitch rack but even with the bikes off I couldn't open the rear doors. This is what I came up with. Track is from 80/20, thru axle mounts from Kuat, and rear cradles from Yakima. Total cost about $120.

    Sorry to dredge this old post up but I really like this design. How did you go about attaching the 80/20 to the van doors? Did you just punch a whole through with a drill and then bolt it down with some large washers? Have you continued to use this design?

    I'd like to see a bumper mod to prevent bike damage when rear ended. And maybe even a basket or something for skis and snowboards
