The new 2022 Thule Bed Rider Pro fork-mount bike rack securely mounts your bike to the bed of your truck, integrating with your truck's existing side rails so that you don't have to use any bolts or screws to install. Bed mounting decreases vehicular wind drag by tucking bikes in behind the cab, protecting your gear from road grit and spray.
The fully adjustable rack fits up to two bikes, both of which are secured by removing the front wheel. If you want to support additional bikes, you can purchase an Add-On Block that allows for more capacity. This rack is compatible with most bed liners.
Lockable quick-release skewer with single-side adjustments make it easy to secure the bike to the carrier for stable and secure bicycle transport.

I bought this Thule rack for carrying out tandem bike. Used it for the first time driving from northern CA to Vancouver WA for the start of an 8-day Columbia River bike tour. While other people were struggling to dismount tandems from cars in front of the downtown hotel, we got our bike off in just a few minutes. The only downside is that the height of the rack puts the captain's handlebars so high that the bike can't be mounted into the truckbed in the garage w/o the handlebars hitting the garage door and/or door frame.
However, since buying the Thule rack I found an after-market bed rail rail that can be easily bolted into the truck bed frame, and installed 2 Rocky Mount fork clamps. That lowered the height of the bike handlebars by about 5 inches, so there is now plenty of clearance to leave the garage. The Thule rack was great, but I found a better solution. I'll be willing to resell the Thule rack for a good price to anyone who wants a good, rugged and well engineered rack.
