Bike Rack

Here is what I came up with for a bike rack solution. I had the carrier's left over from our pop up.
Was looking at lots of different ideas to bring bikes now that we have a hybrid. With this we can still put camp chairs and grill in the back of the truck

Seems like we're missing some pics. Would love to see how you did it.

Someone did something like that with pickup truck side rails like these:

Putco Crossrails - Oval Truck Bed Side Rails - Chrome Plated Stainless Steel Putco Truck Bed Protection P69827

He made cross rails using Channel-strut like this:

Superstrut 10 ft. 12-Gauge Strut Channel Electro-Galvanized Finished-ZA12HS10EG - The Home Depot

Then he mounted a bike rack on the struts.

So his bikes faced fore and aft.

But mine cost $7.50. I had the screws and 1 2x4 . So only bought 3 2x4's. Don't think 5 bikes would of fit the other way.
When not in use the whole thing is one piece and will store under my deck.
