  1. HI Guys, So recently we'e been using our bikes alot and due to the size of the car i can only fit 1 bike inside with two people in the front. I would like to get a bike rack so we can drive to places and take the bikes. Saw one in Halfrauds for £59.99. Just wondering if anyone has got one/knows of any decent racks that aren't going to fall off the car mid drive. Or just mark and dent the car. Any idea? thanks! Jon
  2. Bike Rack

    Hi! I need to buy a rear mounted bike carrier to carry 3 bikes for my Smax. Have spent ages looking online and can't seem to find any that are compatible, Has anyone got one that fits and that they would recommend? Thanks in advance
  3. Think Bike

    You guys might have seen this. Be warned shows footage of a fatal collision. Long story short: Motorcyclist doing 97mph in a 60mph zone. Clio pulls infront. You can guess what happens next. I feel both were at fault here, but hey, just sad it ended with one person losing their life.
  4. Fiesta Bike Racks

    Hi. Ive just brought a 2010 fiesta. I'm taking up off road cycling and was wondering if any fiesta owners know the best bike racks for the car? Thank you :) Robbie
  5. I have a 2012 Mondeo Titanium hatch here in Australia, and want to disable the reversing sensors when I have a bike rack on the back of the car. I want to make up a "dummy trailer plug" that fools the car electronics that a trailer is connected (and hence disables the reverse sensors and blind spot warning). I presume the way it detects a trailer is connected is to detect one or more trailer lights connected (which it already detects for blown globe detection). 1. Does anyone know which globes the system needs to see for it to decide there is a trailer connected? 2. Does anyone know the maximum resistance in a globe circuit the system needs to see before it decides a globe is blown? (Ford Australia refuse to help :-( ) regards Ian
  6. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!
  7. I recently purchased a nearly new 2012 S-Max Titanium, for long family journeys abroad, as well as for our camping trips. When camping we often have enough gear to warrant a roof rack, but this year I also wanted to start taking mine and my kids bikes along with, too. Having done some research it appears that the rear door of the S-Max is a composite material that isn't strong enough to hold a rear bike carrier safely (especially when laden with 3-4 bikes). Is this correct? If so, then I've started to look at getting a tow bar fitted and a bike carrier attached to the tow bar. This is my first experience with tow bars and bike carriers, so some advice would be welcome: My local Ford dealer said they don't supply either, so is there a recommended tow-bar fitter in/near North London? Some of the tow-bar sites I have read say that they would need to cut into my rear bumper in order to fit it. Is this going to compromise the safety of the bumper and/or my warranty? Are all tow bars alike? Or is there a recommended brand? I'd prefer to get one that can be removed when not-needed, both to reduce the likelihood of damage while parking, and to stop it interfering with the rear parking sensors It seems like the whole wiring thing is horribly confusing and a bit of a kludge. Is there a simple solution to what kind of wiring I would need and a way to ensure that its not going to screw up the electrics of the car? I merely want to be able to put a bike carrier on - I have no intention or desire to hook up a caravan or trailer, etc.thanks S
