Bike Carrier Help!

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good bike carrier for a hatchback?

The car is brand new with no roof rails or towbar fitted at the moment. 

Would prefer the rack to mount 2 or 3 bikes.

 

Cheers

Sea sucker , can borrow mine it’s a two bike carrier if you want to try before you buy pros totally portable, fits any car any roof including glass , cons not lockable

I've a Saris Grand Fondo rack available for a try out Robbie, if you're still in the market for a rack. Simple to fit to most cars - you can check their website regards compatibility to your car. No straps touching the frame and the bikes are kept apart from each other also. Totally stable at motorway speeds (can confirm this) and no chance of that low bridge moment. Only down side is the the rack is limited to only two bikes and you need to work out your own anti theft solution - which is not too difficult. Storage could be an issue if you don't have a garage. I hang mine from the garage trusses. Been using this system for a couple of years now with no issues at all. Looks a bit pro with the bikes 'hanging' off the back of the car.

Thanks for info Mark, storing the carrier is an issue as live in a flat with not a lot of storage space.

I'm thinking a roof carrier would be more suitable at the moment.

Robbie, I've bought roof rack + bike carriers from this site many of times in the past!

I recommend the "Thule" brand, though others are available.

Good luck & let me know if you need any help in choosing  ............
