Looks good!!

I also have been putting the bikes in the trailer, but just leaning up on the dinette; I never even thought to do a mod like yours.
Thanks so much for the idea!!

Btw....I was admiring the bikes just as much as the mod......is the 3rd one down a Kona?

Thats ingenious! I checked out our windjammer & am going to do the same thing...please let me know if you would, where you got the front fork lockdowns (or whatever you call them) and what kind they are. Thanks Mike Klagholz

That's genius! Love it! I use the fork mounts for mine but in the back of the truck. You need to get them atba bike shop. The range in price from expensive to really expensive. My three cost me $160. And one (evo) was expensive the other two (yakima)were really expensive. There is a big difference between them though.

fork mount blocks are inexpensive, depending on where you buy them.
a Performance bike store has them for around $15 or you can get them online for the same price. just Google it.
i've got 6 of them on 2x4's that i use in the truck bed.

Great idea. Where did you get the mounting brackets? am going to try something similar on my surveyor.

LOL...yes. I posted on the first page and didn't follow the entire post down to see what everybody else had already learned. Thanks

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all the responses....well, except for the "crude" one - I suppose I could have whittled down some nice oak and put on 6 coats of varnish etc for the mounts, but....

Just got back from a 2 week trip.
Bikes never moved, no frame rub, and ended up storing the wheels in with the bikes.
Took about two extra minutes to unload 'em when compared to our previous trailer that had the bike doors....no big deal.

I'm in Canada and got my Swagman mounts from MEC. which is the closest equivalent to REI you have down South.
They were about $22 each, but I'm sure there are comparable deals on any of the US sites. If you go for Thule or Yakima, yeah, they're gonna' cost you, but these cheap ones are doing the trick for me.

Actually noticed a few people slowing down when passing me trying to figure out why there were four sets of handlebars staring out at them from inside a travel trailer

Will update if there are any developments.
Gotta' love being cheap with a fine assortment of tools in the garage.

Cheers,

Mike
To one of the previous posts, Yes, it is a Kona...although an old one.
