Re: Just a little problem... loading and unloading the bike

This may of been said, I didn't read the whole thread but as a short person :D I had to get creative with the loading too. I only have one ramp and a bike stand to work with so I generally strap the ramp to the hitch so it won't slide out. Then I put the bike stand where I know I can step up onto it...
