need a new Loading Ramp

OK its time for a new ramp, the old one scares me

Is 5.75ft long (straight, no arch) long enough to load a stock bike without it botteming out???
Im kinda small so i really dont like using those skinny ramps, i want to be able to walk it up without having to stop to jump on the tailgate.


This is what i found, i love the price

check it out and tell me what you think

you would perf. something with an arch, because my truck is lowered (like an inch) and i got a 6 ft ramp and still have to be careful if im on level ground, but if i can hop on a incline or something its smooth sailing.

ah, then def. get one with an arch, they make life so much easier. My straight ramp had a tendency to shoot out from under the rear wheel no matter how gently you idled a bike up it.

This might not be the best deal you can find, but the single runner no-fold ramp is the one that I've never had a problem with

I've got one of those. Not the trifold just the single. I had two and would just line them up. Good quality ramp. Sold it with my enclosed trailer though.

The ebay ramp is mostly used for 4 wheelers... I use to have one and sold it for 40bucks. My wheels use to get hung up between the rails. Try this site below. Good luck

Get the vehicle tire ramps from wal-mart $30-40 (i think) -- put your front end up on those and you got your incline everywhere you go.

Brandon beat me to it...


Or buy a small 4 x 8 foldup trailer and be done with trying to get it in the truck. They are perfect for a single bike and don't take up much space.
