    I just use an old bike rack for the K2. I did slap a bunch of extra straps and bungees on there.
  3. I used to use my bike rack but I sold my truck with the rack on it.
    Now I just ride from my house.
    I don't need to haul my bikes lately.

    Most racks will hold 2 or 3 bikes, so one MB should be ok, with weight centered.

    Watch yer lines though.

    I used a hitch mounted bike rack with extra support straps to transport my light weight friction drives. When I added the chain drive, almost lost the bikes so I started loading in the truck bed. When I go to the lake, they ride in an enclosed utility trailer which doubles as storage. If a storm comes around, they stay nice and dry.
  7. i ended up building a hitch rack for 2 mb. ill post pics soon .
    my thule 4 bike rack was not strong enough.

    hey, i got a trunk rack by bell from walmart. it holds both my murray and my 4 stroke schwinn with no problems. 2 rubber hooks go on the lip of the trunk by the back window and the other 2 go on the bottom of the bumper. the trunk flexes with the bikes but after you remove the rack the trunk looks fine, i use a 25 foot length of clothesline rather than the cheap velcrow you get with the rack.
