    Finally got the bikes..

    After nights of research, and half a dozen visits to LBSes, finally decided to go for Specialized.
    Thanks to all who gave information and opinions..

    ...so far, very satisfied.

    both arrived just a day apart.. here they are...

    Very nice! There are simpler ways to secure your bikes though

    ^^ He has the wheel racks, so all he needs is enough lash-down to keep 'em from rolling out of the racks. Canoe lashes would be clean, easy to use and cheap too.

    Edit - - ah, but you were thinking tailgate pad, huh? Good way to maximize a short bed like that too.

    I was thinking moto style tie downs, which would save a lot of wrapping, weaving and knotting.

    That's normally what I preach (as you know), but that looks like a nice little rack he's got there already.

    dexmax, that's a Hilux?

    Thanks everyone.. I agree, I need to buy new ropes.. but so far this works.

    @cryptid01, this is my old '96 Mitsubishi L200.. got it when I finished high school; and used it (to carry my roadies) throughout my college years.. Did a full restore over a year ago, and still love it.

    The white one is also an L200 (2010).

    Cheers!

    That was my thought too - - only not full-fledged M/C tiedowns. Found these nifty canoe tie-downs in the clearance bin at REI: loop one end and non-marring hook on the other with a cinch-buckle.
