I seen an ad in the cycleworld magazine. It was for a trailoring system that goes right on the back of your suv/truck. The bike is almost on like a ski rack.

I had the magazine but I left it in the [email protected] aiplane seat pocket :2bitchsla

I want to investigate prices and see if anyone knows what they are like.

Thanks

Awsome thanks. I have a Jeep Liberty and I don't have room to store a trailer at my house and this set up looks really clean.


How hard is it to take the joe hauler on an off?

Thanks

Did the bike bounce around a lot?

Would you feel secure with it on the back for about 400 miles?

Thanks for your info.

I bought the Versa-haul and carried my R1 from Hollywood to San Jose (380+ miles), without incidents, They go for about $360-410, good quality, installation is easy, about 85-90 lbs They have an anti-tilt bracket that reduces wobble considerably and it's included.

:crash

I used one to go to bike week one year. Its kinda cool cause you can pretty much drive regular. No extra weight and swaying issues like with a trailer. Only thing I didnt like was the whole trip I was sh*ting bricks hoping my bike wouldnt fall off. Also you need a truck that is sort of high in the back. I was using a Conversion Style Van and it seemed to scrape every once in a while when driving into parking lots.

I think that contraption is great for someone that does not have the space for a tailer... but I would still choose a trailer over it :)
