    Farley 5 Truck Fork Mount

    I have a 2016 Farley 5, a d I am looking for for a fork mount for my truck bed, but l'm not sure what size I need. Trek shows 135x5. Does that sound right? My wife's Minnesota has 150x15 with a through axel, so the size sounds small.

    You can take a ruler to the inside dropout surfaces and that is the hub width.
    I don't have a Farley so don't know off the top of my head.

    I guess that I am questioning the 5mm dimension.

    5mm is probably the QR skewer size, not the axle size. Go 10mm x 135mm QR mount and you should be fine.

    I ordered this earlier today after finding another post that described exactly what you said about the skewer being 5mm. Thanks for reaffirming this.

    I just modified a Yakima tray with a Blockhead. I used a 5/16 threaded rod (18") from Menards. I cut it to about 6 1/2". I used the longer nuts (forgot the name of them), then cut them to fit. I took out any left over space with a few washers. These were useful to keep the contact with the fork clean. I used lock nuts on the outside so they would not vibrate loose. I will post photos soon.
