Sludge..... I like it! I have those parts in my Garage now. Simple enough, and I have a big top rack from ZipTy Racing. It sticks out the back a ways, should be safe enough for where I'll take it, pretty close to home 'n all. I might try to find a way to attach the front fork holder over the passenger seat. Have you ever been hassled by the Blue/Red lighted guys in the black & whites?

I Don't care if pics are for KTM or not, certainly. What we're bolting them to ain't a KTM part anyway.

Thanks for the ideas, these are great!! Keep 'em coming.......

Safetybob..... I like the way that sits closer to the moto. Looks like somebody's factory made aluminum parts hold it together. Did you purchase, or create?

Now if only you could attach a smaller bicycle to the rack on the Specialized.

Of course, it'll have a rack too....

I made my Mt. Bike Rack Yesterday

See what I did?


It was pretty easy, three wing nuts and the long Yakima track goes off/on. I even found a use for my old stock rack; It holds the front fork over my back seat and keeps the bike right behind me & sticks out the back a little less. That part uses two long Allen bolts. My wife won't trust enough to ride bitch anyway.



Today is make the SKI RACK day!! The roads are clear all the way (22 miles from my house) to the parking lot at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area, so why not RIDE?

Here is one I made for a friend. I made it work with his Jessie rack. It is quick release, on and off in a matter of seconds. It is tucked behind the rider. You barely tell you have a bike on there.

Guys, that looks cool, but won't it eventually fail just off the edge of the seat rack? Looks like a fulcrum to me.

If you can make a bike rack the ski rack is easy. Some big zip ties and your done.

There's another post out there ?Long Tall Sally? who built a bike rack similarly that did that very thing.

Me? If I hadta design a rack, I'd see if I couldn't brace it from under somehow. The GS-Adv has a bar that goes around the backside of the rear wheel... Obviously you don't want a lot of weight on it, but a little support can go a long ways!

My idea involves a stand similar to what the pro mechanics are using:

Use the BB instead of the rear wheel. The ups: less lever arm. The cons: ya gotta have a tube size that'll fit the clamp on the downtube. The downtube isn't usually designed to attach a bike to something by.


You could prolly get away with something like this. Heat up the long arm, bend it downwards to get the bike outta the air some, then run bolts thru it to secure it to the MC. Use a regular fork mount from PBS or some other rack and you have a fairly cheep rack setup!

I'm thinking as I post, so if ya have better ideas, post em up!
