Exactly As Expected

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

They work great. I fabricated L-brackets to use them with my truck's "cargo management system". I'm able to quickly bolt them in when needed and haul four bikes across the bed.

Can you post a photo of your L-track rig? Been trying to figure out a good way to do that myself. Thanks.

Perfect Cheap Solution

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is the perfect way to stash multiple bikes in your camper van or in the bed of your truck. Just like many others out there I chose to mount this on a 2X6 that sits in my truck. I can carry two bikes in the back of my truck safely and securely for less than $50. While not coming with mounting hardware may seem like a pain, it is actually great because you get to pick exactly how and where you mount the adapter.

I mounted this on a 2x6 cut to fit my F150 bed width. Works like a charm. No issues. Much cheaper than other pre-fab options available.

Love these mounts

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are a super inexpensive option to haul bikes in a truck bed or van. I mounted them under my tonneau cover in my truck bed for long trips since tailgate covers were wearing the paint on the downtubes of my bikes on extended trips. The dirtbag has been secure, and cheap enough to buy extra's in case your buddy is running an older axle setup.

I have a 2 bike rear mount rack from Kuat and love it but sometimes I wanna just throw a bike in the back of my truck and stay on the DL. I mounted these fork mounts on a 2 x 4 cut to the width of my truck bed using 3/8" lag screws and voila...

Sturdy Mount

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This is a great sturdy mount at the price. There is no hardware included which is a bummer but I ended up just getting stuff from Ace hardware for Install. I got the 15x 110 which fit my boosted front fork perfect.

Great mount with one minor flaw

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Overall the product is fantastic. It is very sturdy and fits a 20mm x 110mm fork perfectly without using any spacers. My only complaint, and the loss of a star, is that the mount holes are not centered on the mount plate. I have a Utilitrack system in my truck bed that I mounted this to and found that because the mount holes are off-centered I had to add a backing plate behind the mount in order to get it to work on my Utilitrack. A simple fix, but one that would not be necessary if the mount holes were centered.

Sweet and Inexpensive

The 15mm Thruaxle option is a 100mm width and not wide enough for a fork with Boost spacing.

The Simple Way is the Best Way!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These are simple and work great! I was able to build a custom mount for my truck (didn't want to spend upwards of $500 for crossbars) with only 2x4s, some hardware, paint, and these mounts. I usually hang my bike off the tailgate but didn't want them there for long trips. Even with the nicest pads, they rub on my carbon bikes due to road vibration. I wanted something for 1,000+ mile trips that was more sturdy.

This is such a simple yet versatile bike carrying system, I'm surprised Kuat doesn't have more competition. Great for a DIY truck bed, or in a van, these are super secure and are really straightforward to install.

Van's Best Friend

Note 1: The middle row seats are only folded down for photo purposes. We were able to fit the two bikes (29" wheels, size small and medium) in with the middle row seats up and usable. This makes it perfect for taking a couple ladies along. Or just picking up random hitchhikers to get some karma. Note 2: This is possible in the Dodge Grand Caravan as it is longer than the normal Caravan. Results may very on different models. Hopefully future testing will determine compatibility with other vans.

Note

If you need a touch more room, you can slide the fork mounts over a touch, then put the bikes in at an angle. IE move the fork to the right, and move the back wheel to the left. Gives you a bit more room if needed I am able to give bikes inside my Honda Fit doing that.

For Your Dirtbag Lifestyle

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The Kuat Dirtbag is a straight forward way to mount your bike. With a little creativity you could probably mount it to almost anything. The hardest part will be figuring out what size of axle you have. There are a lot of "standards" these days, but it seems like there is a dirtbag for almost all of them. Pros: -Cheap. Leaving you more money for Ramen. -Bomber. This thing is built to last. Super solid construction. It will last longer than my bike does. The biggest concern is the axle standard will become "outdated" and the mount will be functioning perfectly. -Simple and easy to use. Get a couple screws or bolts and maybe some washers and you are in business. Mount it wherever you please, -Keeps your bike super stable. As long as you mounted the Dirtbag correctly and inserted your axle properly, you bike isn't going anywhere. Take the corners at whatever speed you like. Rattle out your fillings on the washboard road, the Dirtbag won't let you down. -It's black. Black goes with everything. Cons: -You have to remove the front tire. What did you expect? It's a fork mount. As my mother always said, "dirtbags can't be choosers." Just find a place to put your front wheel and avoid squeezing your front hydraulic brake and you won't have any issues. -You need a specific mount for each axle size. No adapters available. Love these things. I bought a couple of them just for a specific trip and the price and functionality made it totally worth it. Get some. Unleash your inner Dirtbag.

Mount up!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

We bought some of these on our most recent bike trip in order to figure out how to mount the bikes on the inside of a minivan. Yeah, a minivan of all things. But we just bought a board, two dirtbags, and boom! We had a makeshift rack that held the bikes like a champ! Both bikes we were using had the 15mm thru-axle, so we bought two of those, and they worked great. One was a Fox fork and the other was a RockShox, so we didn't have any issues with the forks working on either bike, and they stayed nice and tight for the whole trip. What I love about these mounts is that they are so versatile. We just screwed them to a 2x4 board, but after the trip we took them off and now we can mount them on a truck bed or on a different board. It doesn't really matter how you use them, but they can be used for so many different applications. The construction of the dirtbag mount is super solid, giving you the confidence that your precious cargo is going to stay in place. Kuat always makes rad products and I plan on getting more of these to make moving bikes so much easier.

I mounted 15mm thruaxle and 9mm QR mounts in the bed of my Tacoma right behind the cab. Drilled two little holes in the bed floor and mounted with some bolts and Teflon locknuts I picked up for 40 cents at the hardware store. They secure the bikes pretty well but I run a strap over the frames to keep them from wiggling around while I drive. Only thing I can recommend is double checking the inside diameter where the axle or skewer slides through the mounts for burrs or flaws in the metal or paint to keep from scoring or damaging your axle on install. I did not do this my first time putting the bike on and a little imperfection inside the mount scratched some of the paint off my 15 thruaxle. No real damage but it was kind of a bummer as the axle was only 2 months old. Overall a good product and for the price, who wouldn't buy it?

With a quick release (9mm), I can see the fork dropping onto the mount, but what secures the fork to the mount?

A skewer.

I have a very specific use for this product. As such I need to know the exact width of the flat metal plate that bolts to the truck bed. Just the width will do (the length and thickness is not material). This question relates to the 9mmx100mm bed mount. Thank you

How can you tell what size your quick release drop out is?

If the skewer stays in your wheel when you remove it and you have slotted dropouts on your fork, you have a 9mm quick release. They only come in one size. 15 and 20mm through axles have to be fully removed in order to remove your wheel. The size should be marked on the axle.
