Bike Rack

3 posts in this topic

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

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
