Note the excellent 2″ hitch mount rack. This is the only way to carry DH/FR bikes. It keeps them out of the wind and they’re easy to get on and off. The current model is the Thule 916- T2 (available at Black Rock Bikes).


David’s anodized blue, large V10 is equipped with a Fox 40, Fox DHX 5.0 coil shock, Maxxis tires, Avid 7’s, E-13.
