Bike Mount

Mga biker or car loving fafas

Is this a good idea?
Band of Glockers

It's US made so i'm pretty sure the mount can handle the weight
Band of Glockers

I'm worried if the pickups's window can handle the weight of the bike or the torque if the bike sways sa slex potholes

How strong are vehicle's windows? di kaya matanggal ang bintana sa frame?

a bike typically weighs from 25 to 40 lbs

Re: A good idea?

I don't like it.
Saw one here in San Diego it was called SeaSucker.
I admire the ingenuity but don't want one on my back window.
I don't know if will obstruct the view either.
I own 6 bikes and the best rack system available IMHO is by 1UpUSA. I'm dumping my trusty Yakima system- it's that good and most importantly made in USA.
I can use it on my road bikes 29er, 26er and with an adapter-my Pugsley.
I will be picking one up shortly.

I think its a cool idea, but would personally never use one because I don't want my $3000+ bike hanging off my back window.. (Plus I own a pickup truck, so my bike just goes in the bed anyway )

With that said, I do think it serves a purpose for those people who don't have room to store a bulky bike rack, or for those who don't need to transport their bikes long distances (i.e. from their house to their local bike shop).

Thanks for posting! It's cool to see some new ideas

yes it's a seasucker talon model
each vacuum cup is strong enough to carry 200lbs
what I'm worried about is the bike being flung from the pickup along w/ the windshield
