plan to use bike-shoes on full size bikes.

what are people using to hold the mini's in place - will not fit in the bike shoes.. also what about holding the rear wheel in place - they are quite short of the etrack on far side of trailer.

i was thinking of a full rail frame out of 2x4s like i used in my open trailer - but hoping that someone has a better idea.

mostly looking for convienence of in/out and leaving bikes in trailer when not in use - any ideas???

i put d rings in the floor and tie the bikes down on their stands using turnbuckles. it works excellent, the suspension is not compressed and after you unload the bikes there is nothing in the way.

I bought shoes for the kids KTM 50 (10in), Cobra (12in), and KX (14in) at

www.bikeboot.com

No problems with any of the products.

I copied mx547's turnbuckle idea for 2 bikes, and also have a bike shoe for anouther bike. I like the turnbuckle system better. I can still use the trailer for moving other stuff. :thumb: Both ways are bullet proof.
