    I've been hauling skis with my Tubus Cargo rack for a while now, and I think the Cargo is ready made to haul skis around...

    Here's a few pics. I currently live a good 4 hour bike ride from the snow in the mountains, otherwise I'd be putting this carry method to use a lot more often. I put a strap over the skis and rack, and a slow moving vehicle triangle on the tips at the back.

    If everything goes as planned, i'm going to ride 'em this way on some bike-n-ski blitzkreig tours this spring.

    I take it your skis don't extend too far back behind your rear wheel? I have sometimes monkeyed around trying to fasten my 209 cm cross country skis to my bike... I think it might be done without Xtracycle or similar accessories, but it would require some planning.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    naw, those skis are 190's, Juha. I think with most size skis, the toepiece would be on top of the rack.

    They move the weight back a little bit, but its not too bad. Got to watch the turn clearance!

    here's some pics with 215s in there. They're the longest skis I have I just slid them on from the back like a bayonet. The 215s do stick out a little bit...
