I welded up a mount that replaces the exhast side case on the standard adventure rack. Rides poorly but you get used to it quickly. Might reinforce the rack itself eventually but for now it works. I havent ridden more than 20 miles with it yet and havent finished the wheel mount. Used standard thule roof rack. Did not use the passenger peg, just the rack. see photos here

Not really sure why you'd bother, as you seem enthusiastic about mtb so why not ride there on the MTB? But hey, you decide. Also, what are the insurance and road legal implications should you be involved in an accident?

How do you manage to ride that mountain bike without a front wheel?

I contemplated riding my bike to a roller hockey game and decided the stick was too long and awkward to bother with. Obviously you came to a different conclusion with your bicycle. Looks like you made it work though.

I can appreciate anyone's efforts to create something for the bike. I do a lot of that myself. But, I think any description of something you make that includes the phrase "it rides poorly but you get used to it quickly" would be an indicator that the design might need re-thinking. If it rides poorly under normal circumstances, imagine what a pain it's going to be if you suddenly have to do some evasive maneuvers.

Could this be a case of 'Darwin Awards' waiting to happen???:green_lol:
Nope. this set up is just like what I'm building. I've ridden both the 2x2 cycle carrier and a right side install. The 2x2 set up is like a massive sail on the back. The theory is keeping it lower would lessen that sail effect. If the OP would add the left side case with gear inside it would even the bike out and get rid of the strange feeling of being pulled to the right. :yesnod:
