Default Bicycle storage in trailer

Hi All,

As I'm laying out specs on my new gooseneck, I am considering various ways to secure two bicycles (one normal, one recumbent) in the trailer.

The three things that come to mind are

-Hanging from the ceiling by the tires and then tie down laterally to prevent movement
-Somehow use wall mounted E-track
-Put some sort of car bike rack in the gooseneck area


So, I can't be the only person who likes to combine a country bike ride with track days. What do you all do?

How about this? Uses floor space, but works great.

Yes! Something like that is what I was thinking for up in the gooseneck.

The fork mounts work fine. We have a Thule bike rack that is similar and mounts at the front of our bed in the truck, right at the very front. Our triathlon bikes go there and still clear the gooseneck when we turn tight. Just watch carefully the first time you make a tight turn. It also has a lock, not that it would stop someone determined, but it's better than nothing. We're going to take our bikes to WGI again next spring and do the track walk on them. Can't wait to see how it feels and what the perspective is compared to in the car!

I would love to see anyone's solution for hanging them from the ceiling...that would be ideal in my trailer but i am worried about the abuse they may take during transit, not sure how to securely them exactly
