I would like to see a bike rack for the front of the TV?

I have the double hitch thing from Northern Tool and a Yakima Buckhorn 4 rack. The bike rack was back toward the trailer too far so I modified it to be directly above the hitch adapter. For womens bikes there is a spring loaded bar that hooks to the seat post and below the handlebars to make the bike hang straighter on the rack. I also have a 4' wide by 5' long Coleman Versa trailer that I lengthened the tongue on and mounted a 3 bike rack on it, the type that the wheels set in, and a two bike rack on the rear. We use that when we take a trip south with daughter and 3 grandkids in the spring. Bob

I had one on my 78 Ford pickup. I had to take it off because people kept running into the front of the truck in parking lots and bending up the bikes. Think it happened two or three times. I know I had replace wheels and fenders. And finally the peddles got bent pretty bad, thats when I moved it to the back.

This is the rack I built for my balloon tire bicycle that slides into my receiver. I am going to weld a receiver on my tung so I can interchange different stuff I wish to carry for different venues. I am making a rack to slide in there and a box that will slide in also.

That window-less TD scares me, along with the snake-skin tires ...
