    Thanks... I feel like with the width of the two sets of wheels being wider than two joists, the weight will be distributed on three joists. That's about 85-90 lbs per joist.

    The rail is 12 feet long and I'll put a 3 1/2 lag bolt in each joist. As long as I stay around 200 pounds, I should be okay. Diet incentive. lol
