    I've got a Silverado with a toneau cover over the bed. Since it's flat i'd like to mount by bike
    rack to the top of it. I'm not concerned about weight so let's leave that alone for now. The rack is
    a Saris and it looks like they only make the clips for different driprails and not a truely flat
    application. Any ideas? Thanks.

    make a drip rail. ;-)

    put a slide rack on the cover. http://www.cargogear.com/TracRac/TracDimensions.htm TracRac may work.

    Would stick the bike/s up in the air though. there again, maybe the drip rail clips would work if
    you slip them into the slide rail somehow. perhaps mount the slide rail on the sides of the cover.
