Fat Tire Bikes & Fiamma Bike Rack

We recently bought some fat tire bikes and they are great for sand on the beach and desert. They don't fit on a Fiamma Bike rack and Fiamma doesn't seem interested in accommodating them. Has anyone done any customizing to make 2 fat tire bikes fit on the Fiamma bike rack?

I donít have the Fiamma rack so canít offer any help in that area. We carry our FatBikes on the new Thule Uprider which is mounted on Thule bars. Currently have this on our car but my plan is to mount rails and the rack above the hard tonneau cover. Carrying bikes while towing takes some thought.

Fiamma Bike Rack and Fat Tire Bikes

I got a receiver hitch for the front of my Tundra. It's not the ideal situation at night but we don't do much traveling at night. It has worked out well.

I have considered that too, but I the tonneau covers that incorporate a rack system are 2 or 3 times as much. I had a Fold-A-Cover on my Silverado 1500 and loved it so I went with the same thing on my Ram 2500 and trying to figure out how to incorporate a rack system. So far I only found one pic of someone that has done this on this type of cover but it was for a rack mounted tent system so not apples and apples.

Thank you for the update, but probably not my first choice.

Had no idea what section it was in, it just popped up on my google search. My guess is nobody figured it out either.

I spoke to FIAMMA. they have a larger rack for bigger and heavier units and electric bikes. The rack look very similar to the current one, just beefier parts and a wider spacing between the two bikes. FIAMMA says they will sell to me directly if i order a skid of 24. I don't think so (; They will not sell me a single rack as they prefer to deal with dealers

They spoke to As, but no one got back to them.

I spoke with AS, they said there is no customer interest in anything other than the FIAMMA rack they sell now wi the As specific mounting parts. Note, FIAMMA will not sell you those extra parts as they are on contract with AS only

i suggest that you send a note to AS and ask then to discuss this BIG bike/electric bike option with FIAMMA.

the issue is with AS and FIAMMA

I have the tri-fold hard tonneau from Toyota and the edges do not cover more than 1/3 of the bed rails. This allows access to install tracks on the truck bed rails and the Thule feet and associated bars to mount my fat bike carriers. The only downside is it takes a bit of time to move the rear bar forward so the tonneau can be opened.

I havenít installed this yet as Iím considering one of those metal rolling /retracting tonneauís. Then I would have good access to the bed in all circumstances.

Not particularly fond of bikes out of site at the back of the Airstream. Just personal preference. I had a front receiver on the previous truck and wasnít overly fond of my bikes there either. Always took the seats off due to mosquitoes/ bug mess.

Sorry but this rant is probably not much help to the OP
