2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Bike Rack Success

May 12, 2014

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

As I mentioned before I built a makeshift bike rack for our long-term 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. The rack is a simple piece of lumber with two mounts bolted to it. It's cut to fit the bed slots and slides into the front of the bed. It works brilliantly.

My only concern was that the 2x6 might slip out of the slots allowing the bikes to slide forward or backward. Despite a lot of rain followed by hot temps, the wood remained locked in place. Our truck's 5-foot 8-inch bed is barely long enough for these 29-inch-wheeled cross country bikes. Longer bikes would require leaving the tailgate down.
