Yup. Same here. I was hoping to be able to put the bike on the tailgate and just run the lock cable through when I go into a restaurant or something else.
I'm assuming its still there but somehow in the bottom two oval portion. I initially thought they were for the compressor, but the size matches the cable mechanism they showed previously as well as additionally above them is digital display for the compressor to the right, and the + - control to its left.
I do hope the cable is still part of the vehicle for transporting bikes etc, but I would never rely on a cable the width of my laptop power cord exclusively to keep my bike from being stolen, but did like the potential for it to trigger an alarm and record.
Ha ha ha! That's why the Twitter Feed hasn't been updated and "next week's" big reveal event hasn't happened; not the oversight in the bed overview. Suitable disclaimers associated with security cables are as old as cables themselves. . . .Probably the f^ck!ng Lawyers
Just a boring guess, but they might just be the covers hiding the attachment points for the side panels in the bed. In other words, you might be able to pop those circles off to reveal the bolts that need to be removed to remove the side panels to access and repair the electronics for the bed, lights, compressor etc.Yup. Same here. I was hoping to be able to put the bike on the tailgate and just run the lock cable through when I go into a restaurant or something else.
Any ideas to what this might be?
The Rivian website still saysHahaha! Yeah I use Bluebeam for my job but those arrows are from my screen capture app, which is the free version of Screenpresso.
Here is a picture I took when it was in Austin. You can clearly see the extra panel in the picture. It slides up with the tailgate. In other words as you lift the tailgate it also lifts and sandwiches to the tailgate.Does anyone have a good understanding of how the load bearing panel they covers the tailgate gap fold up with the tailgate? I am struggling to envision it.
This video shows the vehicles the best still to date. but keep in mind it was filmed at the LA Autoshow in 2019 and these were the initial prototypes so several features have changed or been removed. but the 13:48 mark shows the tonneau cover in action. as well as the rear bed tail gate gap bridge portion. again lots has been changed but the functionality/principles are still there.Sure seems this latest story could have shown automatic Tonneau cover being operated, fully extended
