LeadDoggy why do your tires stick so far out from your van? You don't seem to have that bigger tires?

Re: Sportsmobile and Dualsporting

I think I am going to have a custom bike hauler made for my van. I like the dual attachment of Leaddoggy's, but I think I will have it flipped so the bike faces the other way. That way the handlebars will clear the spare tire. Looks good LDOG!

2" thick wheel spacers/adapters. Brings the wheels out for better tracking but mainly because it looks kool

mounted direction is so I can unload next to the curb without the ramp and I'm not unloading into middle of street when parked on the street.

If you make the rail high enough you may clear the spare

Also if you load the other way, won't you have to pass the spare with the handlebars as you load, which would be lower as the bike ramps then if you load from the passenger side, where the handlebars are at their highest when crossing the spare?
