    Question Truck Bed Bike Racks for Thru-Axle Bikes

    I recently joined the "thru axle" bike world and now I have a little issue in that my existing bike rack for my pick-up, made for quick release wheels, is no longer useful.

    While I see there are these hokey thru axle adapters, what I'd really like is a rack that doesn't require removing the wheels at all since I'm lazy and unscrewing the front wheel axle is a pain. (Actually, unscrewing from bike, screwing into rack... then unscrewing from rack and screwing back into bike... that's a lot of screwing around!) In addition, mounting the bike by it's fork is one thing, but my wheel rack won't work any more either

    I really like the idea of the following rack, but it looks like it's no longer made, or at least is no longer for sale. What I like about the rack is that it attaches to the bed rail (which my Tacoma has) and doesn't require removing the wheels on the bike.

    Does anyone know if the above rack is still available or or something similar?

    Answering my own question... the racks are still available, just not through Amazon:

    I'd still appreciate feedback on other truck bed racks and whether or not this rack is worth it?
