'Bents & Trucks
My bent has a wheel base of 52" and I drive a Dodge Ram 1500 long box pickup truck. Normally I have a tonneau cover attached to the bed that hinges to the truck box also in the back of the truck bed. However due to the cover shrinking it has been off the back of the box this summer.
I have looked at Yakama and Thule's versions of mounting versions for a bike to the truck. Does anyone transport their 'bents like this in a truck? And is the bent vertically running the lenght of the box or horizonally sideways in the box?
Or is laying the bent down in the box for short term travel to and fro to rideable trails ok on the bent?
Any suggestions would help out this newbie.
