that's how I would transport one if I had a bike

I'd like to get away with something like this but I sometimes need to fill my bed, and I want the tonneau cover to protect the contents. And I may be trailering a boat at the time so, the hitch rack isn't practical.

they also have bike racks that will mount on the receiver hitch extension between the truck and the trailer.

I thought about getting the sliding tracks for bedrail mounting initially. But I already had my 51 inch load bars/mounts/rack from a previous car and didn't want to replace all of it. So I decided to go with a Thule 3114 kit and direct mount it to my bed cover. The nice thing is I can take the brackets/bars off at the end of the season and use the bracket covers included with the Thule kit to cover the mounts. I originally saw it on ORS direct's website.

They stick out about 5 inches, but after bikes are removed at destination I slide them forward so the tailgate can close. Your long box should be fine.

If I had that brand hard tonneau cover, I would go the same exact route. I like it.

I installed my big mouth rack today. I mounted them to the back cross rail T channel and to the front bed divider T channel.

Use this on the daily. It's from one of the hanging racks and I use 1 Thule T2 bike carrier = also works as a rear bumper guard. I just like keeping everything on the bed covered since i carry lots of bike gear and tool box back there.





or use my Thule T2 2 bike rack holder



Also have the Race Face tailgate pad if I really want to carry more bikes.

4 bikes and a short bed

Here's my new set up, wanted to haul 4 bikes plus travel stuff (camping gear, luggage, etc.) Base rack is from Marquette Mounts (marquettemounts.com) and those are Yakima Frontloader bike racks. The Marquette Mounts rack has gone on an 1,100 mile trip with no issues. The whole set up including bikes is about to go on a 2,500 mile road trip with hopefully lots of bikes stops along the way.

If i am correct you can put the gear on bars and put a bike mount to those and keep the cover on just folded open

That does look pretty nice. What cover are you using? Looks like they work well together...

Very nice setup! How's your gas mileage with those bikes up there? I've always had the worst gas mileage when mounting bikes on my roof on my previous cars, lots of wind noise, and it's a PITA cleaning off all that bug splatter baked on the bikes after a long drive. I also like to bring my bike to work and the 1st 3 levels of our indoor garage has pipes hanging low, about 1 ft distance from my roof. Here she is sitting pretty in the back, of course she goes inside the office where it's nice and cool

I posted a page or two back, but a simple 2x6 and the bike mounts I'm using and finally got around to setting this up...works great! I mounted the brackets so that the back tires of each bike would sit against the back of my bed so no movement. The 2x6 gave me enough room to mount my road bike and mountain bike

I'd kill for a Fastkap on my Canyon. A proper sealed camper to protect my $10K MTB and gear (I take it to work with me and ride afterwards) and have a topper that I could slide out of the way when I'm hauling furniture or whatever.

The guy that makes these has said that if he had enough requests for our trucks, he'd build them. So please contact him people!

I like this idea a lot. I have the Thule Insta-gator seen below which I love. It's quick and easy, but once I get my Softopper, it will not quite clear the height of the bike. Your solution looks perfect for that scenario. Did you just cut the 2x6 to be the exact width of the truck bed so it doesn't shift, or is it actually fastened in some way?

I'll let you know about MPG after the first long trip with them. I don't expect it to be great, lol. And yes, the bug splatter should be fun but it's all in the name of toting the toys around!
