Which Bike Carrier?

4 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone,

I am back on the site again after a long spell off of it LOL

What I am wondering is I am begining to do alot of cycling and I'm wondering which would be the best bike carrier to get fot my road bike. It weighs less than 10kgs and was wondering is it ok to get a low mounted carrier as the car has a spoiler or would it damage it?

Thanks :)

Rear carriers are not recommend for cars with plastic spoilers, a tow bar or roof mount is the only safe option.

Hi Stephen, this may be of interest, re. bike carrier.

Luckily I can use a rear carrier on the 2009 estate as Ford didn't fit a plastic spoiler, one of the main reasons I went for the estate.
