    Fat Bike fork adapter for transporting our bikes?

    Has anyone had anyuck finding a fork adapter that fits our bikes, that comes with the skewer. I have one for my road bike that allows me to carry my bike in my bed, mounted to the bed rail on the trucks bed, nearest the cab. I'd like on for the other side of my bed, for my Muenzie. I haven't had much luck finding any and the one that I found(Hurricane), got horrible revues.

    Kuat Dirtbag, I have one in 135mm. Doesn't come with skewer, but a 135mm skewer isn't that hard to find.

    Kuat makes other sizes of the dirtbag.

    I modified a 100mm adapter by putting in a 10mm QR axle and reversing some axle nuts (with a couple lock washers) to make it 135mm. Add skewer, done. I did have to drill out the adapter an additional 1mm to get the 10mm axle in, but there was a lot of material there. So, if you've got a 100mm one laying around...

    made my own. for 135QR I used all thread spacers and wing nuts. for the 150TA I used PVC to make up the space for the THULE TA adapter I already had for my other MTBs
