Hey all, if I don’t lose my licience tomorrow, I’m buying a towbar bike rack, but which one to go for? Some go on the ball and some have a mount plate which goes between the ball and towbar itself, what do you all reccomend?
Fixed towbar, not detachable, my concern is that it may get used with 2 downhill bikes going long distance and my Bighit isn’t exactly light and niether is my mates Norco, do they all have straps to support the top end of the rack?
When I bought the rack I added up the weight of bikes I would be lugging around, SX Trail, Orange Patriot and a Demo 9, as i’m sure you will agree none are particularly light, the Demo weighing the most. All of them came in under the maximum weight specified by the manufacturer.
I will be selling a pendle, 3 bike flange mount rack shortly. Think its had a couple of big hits and a turner 6pack on it. Did 100+ mph with no bother. Will be available as soon as I get my new van. I’ll give you a shout when I get sorted.
