We've seen photos of the R1T with a bike rack on the roof and now there's a photo of one with a hitch bike rack.

There's this one as well which I like the best. Can keep the tonneau closed and still haul bikes over the bed without worrying about the peeling the top of the car off if you pull into a garage.
Thats a solid option for 2 maybe 3 MTB's. The width of the bars prevents you from loading more bikes in this configuration. A 1-Up rack with a 4 bike configuration off the tow hitch will get you the added capacity (and fold up easily), or, and since Yakima is building accessories, perhaps they will have a fitted gatekeeper which gets you MAX capacity for bikes, with the least amount of hassle. I see a need for possibly multiple options depending on how you add other accessories. If you are going camping or overlanding, you may want the 1-Up or similar rack off the tow hitch, or possibly on top of a clam-shell style camper that support racks (so you can maximize storage space in the bed). I find that for day-today use, and shorter travel to the trail head, this style works best for the pick-up: GateKeeper

I assume standard yakima racks will fit on these cross bars. They look to be oval shaped or rectangular in the pics. I already have two Yakima bike racks, and it would be great to throw these over the bed like we see above.

I really hope those bed racks can telescope up to the roof height. Would be amazing for hauling lumber, canoes, etc.
Those towers and bars will not, but from what I understand there will possibly be an option for a bed mounted rack system that is raised.

Yakima makes those cross bars and yes to other Yakima accessories fitting those bars - plus accessories from other rack manufactures. ;)

I currently use a Thule T2 tray style rack but I would think a better option is a tailgate pad to just toss your bike in the bed with the front wheel over the tailgate. Less intrusive an simple to use especially since you can now lock bikes to the bed with the pads available.
