    What to do with front wheel?

    Hey, all, new here, been lurking for a while, but haven't been able to find an answer to this question, so figured it was time to post.

    I'm 99% sure I'm going to go with a Hollywood Racks fork mount on a 2x6 in the bed of my truck (actually a pair, one for each of my bikes, just in case), but I'm trying to figure out what to do with the front wheel(s). I thought about just strapping it to the frame, or maybe one of the tie-downs in the bed of the truck, but wasn't sure how secure that'd be at highway speeds. I don't want to put it inside the truck, due to mud/dirt/debris (my wife would have my head on a platter).

    So...what do you all do for this dilemma? Thanks in advance for any ideas!!

    lay it down? lean it against the front of the bed? I do both of these on a regular basis an have no problems, interstates, plain old 2 lane highways and the hills never had a problem with either of these methods in any of those driving conditions.

    Thanks for the input! I'm thinking about getting some velcro ties and lashing it to either the bike itself or one of the truck bed rail tie-downs.

    I stand mine up between the bike and bed rail and put a pedal in the spokes. If I'm parking the truck for a while I run a cable lock through the wheel and frame.

    what are you afraid that it will fall out of the truck? Does your truck have a tailgate?
    Relax. If it flies out of the bed, you have bigger issues to worry about.
    Grit, spit, and a whole lot of duct tape!
