    DH wheels... and my rack.

    Noticing the lack of quick release skewers, is there some sort of adapter for the front wheel to fit on a normal fork mount yakima rack?

    the other delima is, my rack for my SUV is a yakima, the type that has two bars with holders, for the top tube. One of the bikes I am looking at has umm, no toptube...

    Any grassroots solutions out there besides having to0 buy 2 new racks?

    He probably means a bike like most newer style dh bikes that do not have an actual toptube like hardtails.

    the adapter you need is made by hurricane components and is called a fork up

    i have the blue one cause both my old fuel and my giant faith 3 have 20 mm thru axles and it works great. The only thing is now the bike is no longer locked to the car with the yakima lock but i solved that with a cable lock which i run under my car to my hitch rack.

    good luck.

    Thnx melt, thats the ticket.

    Yeah, and by no top tube, I meant like an intense M1, or Astrix Havoc etc..

    I guess I can use one of those yakima seatpost to stem bars for my SUV hitch rack.

    It is a great rack, if you do not mind having the paint rubbed slowly off your new santacruz
