As the 2017 biking season ends for the east-coast we all gotta run home and bike indoors to keep the fitness up and level up for next year. Training is the key to keep those legs strong and growing!

For the wood pieces, homedepot or Lowes can do the cuts for you at 25 cents per cut.
Get 1x Sande Plywood 4ft x 8ft and have it cut into 1x 36×41″ 2x 36×9″ and 2x 22.5×9″. You will be left with a lot of left over pieces but that is the cheapest way to get the perfect cuts.
Get 2x 2×4′ make sure that they piece you get is straight. Start with the 2x 36″ cuts from each and then get the 4.5″ pieces from the remaining.
Follow the images above to layout your pieces and mark them for easy assembly. You’ll also want to get 1-1/2″ to 2″ wood screws. Make sure to pre-drill before putting the screw through the wood or you can also get self-drilling screws to speed up the process.
Assemble the metal parts and measure the proper location for the Floor Flange that’ll connect the metal assembly.
After you assemble your roller bed, make sure to pain the bed/wood portion with some water/sweat resistant paint, here is Rust-Oleum Truck Bed paint
Enjoy your ride!
