Hi, y'all!

I'd been browsing the forums with interest and sometimes considerable amusement looking for a way to cart my bicycle around on the LT. I finally came across 2x2 Cycle's excellent bike rack which fits about a million different bikes right off the shelf... but not any that have a trunk! As luck would have it 2x2 Cycles is located only about a 1/2 hour ride from me. I was able to meet with the owner, Garrett, who took considerable time to come up with a safe and structurally sound solution for my LT which would not require leaving the trunk at home. I've taken the rig for a few rides already and it works beautifully.

I've posted pictures here:

Garrett took some daylight pictures today too. I'll add those once he gets a chance to send them to me.

Happy riding!

Quite cool - and doubles as a wheelie bar! That's an awesome setup - thanks for sharing.

This worked for me...see attached:

I just leave them on the trailer when not in use.

Rowie - it's about as much of a wheelie bar as the LT will ever be likely to need... especially with my butt holding it down.

Ron - if my wife or daughter ever show any kind of interest in cycling, I may have to consider your solution. I love seeing all the different ways folks outfit and use their LTs. Very cool!

this is another reason the LT does in fact stand for "Light Truck"

It wouldn't surprise me to see one with an actual truck bed attached... albeit perhaps a small one. :D

When do you come up with the LT-rack for your bicycle? :histerica :histerica :histerica
