I know a lot would tell me I'm a wanker for actually loading a bike up instead of riding it, but in this case my main summer ride is going to include some off-roading in the desert, and some canyon riding, all using Quincy, CA as a home base.
I'd like to know what everybody is using to transport their bikes, be it in the back of a truck, an open trailer, an enclosed trailer, or a (for lack of a better term) bike carrier off the end of a hitch? I've looked at a bunch of options, from your standard 6x10/6x12 enclosed, a Kendon open trailer. They seem to be almost the same prices for some reason, with a 3 bike capability. And the rear carry racks,,,,,do they block the tail lights and brake lights to the point that the police will have issues??
