Lakes based mostly mountain biking type, with the odd foray into gravel, 'cross and even road. Fuelled by coffee and porridge. Driver of Van. Known to race at times. Happy place being out the door and in the hills - local or further afield, all is good with two wheels in the dirt.

Great innovation but a prime example of something which needs to be acquired by a larger manufacturer to cut costs. Feedback Sports or Thule should be all over this, it's just too expensive as it stands, particularly at £60 a hook. If you need it then it probably means you've got 3-4 bikes to store so the cost really adds up. I'm interested to know if it will take a bike with full length guards.

 

I don't have this system, but do have a DIY rail and hook system that uses the exact same principle. I have no issue storing my fully mudguarded bike along side mine and my families other bikes.

I find an old winter\hiking sock, with the foot turned into the leg bit makes a wonderful pedal guard.

My good bike is allowed to be locked to the end of the bed.

Nice but—and I know it's all too easy to jump on the 'how much?!?' bangwagon—if you're after this kinda setup consider looking at catering/butchers supplies and you can pick up a rail and meat hook system for a fraction of the price that'll do the job just as well.
