I use a similar rack on my Focus estate carrying 2 mountain bikes, no problem. Not suitable if you have a rear plastic spoiler.

Hi stormin.

Which one do you use.

Dose it cover up the lights or the reg plate.

Thanks simon

I was given the rack and it doesn't have a name on it unfortunately. If you look at my gallery pictures you can see the rack it doesn't cover the lights but it does obscure the number plate, I hang an extra number plate on the bikes, it is unlit but most police units wont give you a tug because you have made an attempt to comply with the law, that's providing you haven't made any another traffic violation. I'm sure even Stoney wouldn't pull you over.

What about if your car doesn't have a tow bar so you have no where to plug the board into.

After much thought I think I'll be going for the roof bars and bike holders.

Going to be travelling a far bit and will be parking up and leaving them on the car so much more secure

Has anyone got or used roof bars with bike holders.

Intresting Question, I have wondered about this myself....maybe there is a smaller light weight plug available??

The reason I went for the boot mounted carrier was that many car parks have height restrictions, particularly where I cycle, this means that you have to de-mount the bikes before entering the car park. Getting it right can be a bit of a bummer. :unsure:

Yes there's not an ideal carrier. Write down the pros and cons of each type including the total cost, then take the plunge. good biking weather is just weeks away hopefully. :rolleyes:
