Bike Rack

Recommended Posts

MBurke

Hello, I'm in the market for a hitch mounted bike rack to haul our four bikes to the trails.I have looked around a little, just wondered if any or you fellas haul your bikes on a hitch mounted rack. Looks like to me the platform ones are the way to go, but are a little pricey.

Any suggestions ??

Thanks

I got one at Fleet that fits into the receiver and has an extended shank so you can hook up a trailer.

Keep your eyes peeled on some of the "Sales" sites...(craigslist, the large "auction" site) A couple years back, I picked up an almost new rack (used once) that holds 5 bikes (I believe it was a "Swagman XP5" brand)on the big auction site. The individual had shipping set at $150 flat rate......and it just so happened that my mother in law lived in the same town. I believe I won the auction for something like $21.63. I had my mother-in-law quickly get over there to hand him a check and pick it up before the dust settled. grin.gif I believe his reaction on his face when she picked it up wasn't the nicest mad.gif....but I was able to make it work in my favor! wink.gif

(I sure hope the individual isn't a member of this site!) shocked.gif

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun

      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.

      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.

      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
