Good info here http://www.ridgelineownersclub.com/forums/138-second-generation-ridgeline-2g-2017/139497-carrying-bikes-best-approaches-gen-ii.htmlAny suggestions for a bike rack
I'm thinking of the same...I have a Specialized Roubaix and Gary Fisher 29er that I'd like to take to ride events or the 29er to a trail...I used to have Rocky Mounts on the utilitrack in my Frontier, but might get something like you linked.After reading a couple of other bike rack threads on this forum I purchased the Swagman in-bed rack (Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier - Locking - Fork Mount Swagman Truck Bed Bike Racks S64702). For my needs it works great. Easy to snap into place and remove. Pictures are available in other threads. I have a 56cm Cannondale Synapse and it easily fits in the Ridgeline bed with a little room to spare when mounted to the rack.
My Santa Cruz Solo (27.5) fits with room to spare, my SC Tallboy required me to move the mounting plate, but my buddy's Pivot 429 Trail still requires me to slant the bike in order to get the tailgate closed. I'd expect the slacker the head angle, the less likely it will fit. Downhill bikes especially.i like this idea . i wonder how it'll work with longer wheelbases ie mountain / dh bikes
