The all-new Yakima BikerBar truck bed bike rack
is designed for use in the cargo bed of compact / mid-size pickup trucks (8001141 includes one 66" crossbar to span across truck bed; also available is the 8001143 Yakima BikerBar with a 78" crossbar to span the cargo bed of full-size pickups). The BikerBar truck bike rack transports two bicycles conveniently and securely, preventing bicycles from rattling around in and sliding about truckbed, as well as causing any marks, scratches or damage to the bikes and pickup cargo bed. No drilling or permanent bolting required, simply mount the included pair of proprietary Yakima Racks BedRock clamping mechanisms on the truckbed side rails. The BikerBar system installs and removes effortlessly using the quick-release lever integrated into each BedRock bed rail mounting mechanism. Fits virtually all pick-up trucks including those with most types of bed liners. Even includes mounting adapters for pickup trucks with bed rail tracks / c-channel systems etc.
The 8001141 Biker Bar bike rack model includes a single crossbar with endcaps that attaches to the BedRock side rail mounts and is ideally sized for spanning across any compact / mid-size pickup truckbeds. Simply measure the distance from outer edge of truck bed rail to the outer edge of the bed rail on the other side of the truckbed to determine if the 8001141 Yakima Biker Bar bike rack w/ 66" crossbar is the right BikerBar version to select (8001143 BikerBar truck bike rack version w/ 78" crossbar also available.)
Also included are two Yakima BOA fork block assemblies with premium, locking quick-release skewers for easily mounting the front wheel bike forks on all sizes, styles and designs of bikes using common/standard 9mm skewer axles (virtually all bicycles with bike wheel quick-release skewers use the 9mm axle size.) The two BOA bike fork mounting assemblies attach anywhere along the Yakima BikerBar cross bar. Also fully compatible with any disc brake / suspension systems using 9mm axle quick-releases. Additionally, any bicycles with 15mm, 20mm, 24mm, 25mm thru-axles, Cannondale Lefty fork, Maverick, and any other non-traditional fork mount skewer designs can be transported by simply attaching and tightening in place any various bike fork adapters to the BOA quick-release skewer mechanism (all bicycle fork adapters sold separately; see accessory add-ons below). The 8001141 Yakima BikerBar truck bike rack also features full-system locking security using the included four-pack of Yakima SKS locks and keys, which lock each bicycle to the BikerBar bike rack, as well as locking the entire BikerBar system, itself, to the pickup truck.ATTENTION:The BikerBar bike rack pair of BedRock bed rail clamp-on mechanisms and single crossbar components are based off of the all-new, general-purpose 8001140 Yakima BedRock pickup truck bed rack system, which includes a set of four BedRock bed rail mounts and Yakima SKS 4-pack of locks and keys. The 8001140 Yakima BedRock pickup truckbed rack also requires a pair of Yakima round cross bars, which are sold separately to allow for selecting the optimal crossbars length from the list of differing length crossbars. The Yakima BedRock complete, universal system allows for the attachment of any crossbars mounting gear carriers, including those from other manufacturers, delivering a convenient, lower level height for more easily loading and unloading equipment compared to pickup truck cab roof rack systems.
