Unanswered Question

Will either of these work for just a regular front fork? Not quick release forks. Regular solid axle forks.

Love these mounts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are a super inexpensive option to haul bikes in a truck bed or van. I mounted them under my tonneau cover in my truck bed for long trips since tailgate covers were wearing the paint on the downtubes of my bikes on extended trips. The dirtbag has been secure, and cheap enough to buy extra's in case your buddy is running an older axle setup.

As intended

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things are a must if you're looking to make a DIY rack or need a quick fix!

Works Great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have a 2 bike rear mount rack from Kuat and love it but sometimes I wanna just throw a bike in the back of my truck and stay on the DL. I mounted these fork mounts on a 2 x 4 cut to the width of my truck bed using 3/8" lag screws and voila...

Works Great!

Sturdy Mount

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great sturdy mount at the price. There is no hardware included which is a bummer but I ended up just getting stuff from Ace hardware for Install. I got the 15x 110 which fit my boosted front fork perfect.

Great mount with one minor flaw

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Overall the product is fantastic. It is very sturdy and fits a 20mm x 110mm fork perfectly without using any spacers. My only complaint, and the loss of a star, is that the mount holes are not centered on the mount plate. I have a Utilitrack system in my truck bed that I mounted this to and found that because the mount holes are off-centered I had to add a backing plate behind the mount in order to get it to work on my Utilitrack. A simple fix, but one that would not be necessary if the mount holes were centered.

Sweet and Inexpensive

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The 15mm Thruaxle option is a 100mm width and not wide enough for a fork with Boost spacing.

Unanswered Question

well the kuat 15 fit 110 mm through axles as well, or is it just for 100mm? thanks!

The "Black Phat Bike 15mm" bike fork mount would fit a 15mm thru axel with 150mm spacing?

For anyone else out there. The Phat model is for 15mm x 142mm.

Kuat now makes another 15mm x 150mm bikes, but is marked as such

With a quick release (9mm), I can see the fork dropping onto the mount, but what secures the fork to the mount?

Unanswered Question

I have a very specific use for this product. As such I need to know the exact width of the flat metal plate that bolts to the truck bed. Just the width will do (the length and thickness is not material). This question relates to the 9mmx100mm bed mount. Thank you

Could one of you kind people measure the height of this mount from bottom to center of thru axle? Thanks!

The Simple Way is the Best Way!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are simple and work great! I was able to build a custom mount for my truck (didn't want to spend upwards of $500 for crossbars) with only 2x4s, some hardware, paint, and these mounts.

I usually hang my bike off the tailgate but didn't want them there for long trips. Even with the nicest pads, they rub on my carbon bikes due to road vibration. I wanted something for 1,000+ mile trips that was more sturdy.

Easy to use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is such a simple yet versatile bike carrying system, I'm surprised Kuat doesn't have more competition. Great for a DIY truck bed, or in a van, these are super secure and are really straightforward to install.

Dirtbag Van

Van's Best Friend

Note 1: The middle row seats are only folded down for photo purposes. We were able to fit the two bikes (29" wheels, size small and medium) in with the middle row seats up and usable. This makes it perfect for taking a couple ladies along. Or just picking up random hitchhikers to get some karma.
Note 2: This is possible in the Dodge Grand Caravan as it is longer than the normal Caravan. Results may very on different models. Hopefully future testing will determine compatibility with other vans.

If you need a touch more room, you can slide the fork mounts over a touch, then put the bikes in at an angle. IE move the fork to the right, and move the back wheel to the left. Gives you a bit more room if needed
I am able to give bikes inside my Honda Fit doing that.

The Kuat Dirtbag is a straight forward way to mount your bike. With a little creativity you could probably mount it to almost anything. The hardest part will be figuring out what size of axle you have. There are a lot of "standards" these days, but it seems like there is a dirtbag for almost all of them.


-Cheap. Leaving you more money for Ramen.

-Bomber. This thing is built to last. Super solid construction. It will last longer than my bike does. The biggest concern is the axle standard will become "outdated" and the mount will be functioning perfectly.

-Simple and easy to use. Get a couple screws or bolts and maybe some washers and you are in business. Mount it wherever you please,

-Keeps your bike super stable. As long as you mounted the Dirtbag correctly and inserted your axle properly, you bike isn't going anywhere. Take the corners at whatever speed you like. Rattle out your fillings on the washboard road, the Dirtbag won't let you down.

-It's black. Black goes with everything.


-You have to remove the front tire. What did you expect? It's a fork mount. As my mother always said, "dirtbags can't be choosers." Just find a place to put your front wheel and avoid squeezing your front hydraulic brake and you won't have any issues.

-You need a specific mount for each axle size. No adapters available.

Love these things. I bought a couple of them just for a specific trip and the price and functionality made it totally worth it. Get some. Unleash your inner Dirtbag.

Mount up!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We bought some of these on our most recent bike trip in order to figure out how to mount the bikes on the inside of a minivan. Yeah, a minivan of all things. But we just bought a board, two dirtbags, and boom! We had a makeshift rack that held the bikes like a champ!

Both bikes we were using had the 15mm thru-axle, so we bought two of those, and they worked great. One was a Fox fork and the other was a RockShox, so we didn't have any issues with the forks working on either bike, and they stayed nice and tight for the whole trip.

What I love about these mounts is that they are so versatile. We just screwed them to a 2x4 board, but after the trip we took them off and now we can mount them on a truck bed or on a different board. It doesn't really matter how you use them, but they can be used for so many different applications.

The construction of the dirtbag mount is super solid, giving you the confidence that your precious cargo is going to stay in place. Kuat always makes rad products and I plan on getting more of these to make moving bikes so much easier.
