A good bike rack is critical, and sometimes the simplest solutions are the best.
For pickup trucks, we found these Pipeline Racks. The company produces two-bike and three-bike models of these simple but efficient bike racks, which simply cradle the front tire to hold the bike in place in a pickup truck bed.
Load up the bikes and go, no straps, hitches, or locks. The racks accept any wheel diameter from 26Ã¢â‚¬Â all the way up to 29ers, and only makes contact with the tire, so no scratches on the frame. These would be perfect for loading up muddy bikes after a wet trail ride, or when you just want to get home after a tough race. The system works with road and mountain bikes, with enough clearance for disc brakes.
Two-bike models retail for $179.95, and the three-bike model is $199.99, available for purchase here. Click more for a close up…
