Just a suggestion!! I have kinda the same setup but I used Yakima Locking Blockheads. I actually put the mounts on the side rails and my Full Suspended bike fits sideways with about 3-4 inches to spare.Bry03cobra said:Hello
Only prob is my Full suspension bike (intense Uzzi SL) has a long wheelbase, thus I must have the tailgate down when transporting that bike. My road bike fits fine.
Great Idea!!! I have a couple of mounts that I have been wanting to use instead of buying new. Off to Home Depot I goMOBEEBO said:I used a 1/4" Super Strut. You get a bag of 5 at Home Depot for less than $5. They are used for electrical conduit framing and fit as if they were built for the track.
That way you can use any mount. I picked up my mounts from my ol Ranger. I am updating to the Locking Yakima skewers this afternoon.
The mount for the Utilitrac is too expensive. Also, a theif can still un-mount the tiedown by hand and steel the bike and mount.:damn:
My Ibis Silk-Ti fits with room to spare.
Take a look.....
I can't take all the credit. I learned about it on the Titan forum.:thumbsup:TXoutlaw said:Great Idea!!! I have a couple of mounts that I have been wanting to use instead of buying new. Off to Home Depot I go
I have run fork mounts in the side utilitracks, works just as well, just doesnt look as cool!lpdjshaw said:Just got my new fork mounts the other day from Courtesy Nissan and didn't like how the edges were just square. So I ground, filed, sanded and finally polished them. They look sweet! Only problem is I had recently installed a Bak Rollup which required me to remove the front utilitrac.
So now I have these shiny fork mounts with nice rounded edges that I can't use so they're going on Ebay soon unless anyone is interested in them. I'll sell them for what I paid ($40/ea) and include used skewers and free shipping to cont. US.
Photos available as soon as my wife gets back with my camera.
Yeah, that is definitely a Frontier in the pics. That would work just perfect.Maybe something like this, check out the pics, it looks like a frontier in a couple of them: http://www.amazon.com/Delta-Bike-Hitch-Locking-Mount/dp/B000ACAM7E
I've been running the Delta fork mount (attached to Utili-Track) for just over 1 year now. Love them. However, the threads & nut are rusting....I'll buy it again.Maybe something like this, check out the pics, it looks like a frontier in a couple of them: http://www.amazon.com/Delta-Bike-Hitch-Locking-Mount/dp/B000ACAM7E
