Pretty cool ole' thread you dug up, good sir! Is that your bike? Would that put you over 13'6"? Midroof or condo? I like the set up, keeping the bike as far away from the road grime, as 'possible' besides being in cab.

Details ?!?!? confused.gifthank-you.gifconfused.gif

Anne,

Just saw it at a shipper and remember a discussion on the forum about bringing a bike. So I thought would take a picture to show how at least flatbedder has made it work.

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

That's actually pretty clever, IMHO~! What would you estimate the height to be, though? Maybe the vets will stop in and weigh in. Interesting, for sure. If that is indeed a mid roof, it may actually keep the height within reg's. Good find, Rob~!

Definitely a mid-roof and the height, even with the bike sticking up, is well under 13'6".

The only concern I would have is that we regularly hit low branches in our travels. I don't think those handle bars would far well being whacked by a limb.

Ahh, didn't think about the foliage issue; good point.

I wonder if suspending the bicycle upside down in the same area, would work? Clever!
