Hey I'm no gooney! I just don't like hearing chains clanking around!

You just need an adapter like this for thru axle forks. It is what I use. If I go to another bike rack on a friends car I just move the adapter, otherwise it stays on ours.

I think this will work. Now I just need to come up with some mods to carry up to 2 more bicycles or 1 more dirtbike. Need to figure out how to carry bicycles with thru-axles on them too.

Hardtail is no big deal. Riding cross bikes or single speeds on front range trails is for goonies. Believe me, if I had the money I wouldn't be riding a 12-year-old hardtail. For what it's worth it still rides great and as long as I can keep my legs and lungs strong I can make it up obstacles that a lot of guys on fancy-a$$ full suspensions dismount and walk up.
LOL! I don't know what a goonie is, but I probably am one.

I'm definitely one of those dismount and walk up types. I like riding down, not so much riding up. If it looks hard, I just get off, save my energy for going down. But, I'm not in very good shape either. My brother rides everything, but he's crazy!

Yes, and 3 sub woofers. But make sure the winch uses steel cable, so it sinks and doesn't interfere with your bobber/worm setup.

Eh....it's only a M12K so not overkill at all for fishing and landing that 5lb trout

The strobes in the marker lights though? Are those for night fishing
