Hey Woody,

Only thing might have been to make the drawer even longer. I had room to go up to about 77" for the drawer, I went 62". The reason to go longer is that I could have mounted the forward fork mounts further forward, giving more room to offset the bikes (when carrying four) to avoid handlebar/tire contact. However this is really just nitpicking. One change I'm making is to add two more fork mounts for the outboard positions. These will be mounted slightly more fore/aft and a little closer to centre, this will enable mtb handle bars to clear the side walls. The current setup works for road bikes, but for mtb, I can only fit 2 bikes as the handlebars of the outer mounts touch the side walls. I really do love the setup. I find that I don't even need to secure the rear wheel to the drawer as it doesn't really move much while driving. To secure the front wheel I use some velcro straps to simply tie the wheel to the bike frame. Here are the straps I use: https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5034-7...s-%284-Pack%29

Good luck.
Shaun
