I made a cargo rack for the reciever out of 2 inch angle iron. I used expanded metal for the floor and it works great. Last summer I needed a bike rack for my specialized hard rock sport (lol a wall mart cheapie comapred to some of your steeds). So I went to the bike shop and got one of those clamps that hold the forks when the wheel is off and I bolted that to the outside of my rack. Then I just throw the front wheel in the back of the jeep. It works great and cost i think $17? really cheap for something that works great. If you dont have a rack already ( I aasume you dont) You can easily make a bike specific rack in this model very easily. Just run square tubing out of your hitch. Then branch off with angle turned up to accept the rear wheel and mount the clamp on the other end. Sorry for the length and less than stellar articulation of this concept but I will try to get you some pics later today or tomorrow.
