What Bicycle carrier can you recommend please?

  1. Hi there, I have been told I cannot fit a tow bar to my 78 T2 due to the twin exhaust. So, I'm in the market for a tailgate carrier for three bikes. Can anyone recommend one please. Or, do you have one for sale? Much appreciated in advance.

    That. The Fiamma one would take 2 adult and a kids bike I'd say. You might struggle with 3 adult bikes depending on weights.
     
  4. thanks for getting back. Is there a model name? Ta
     
  5. mine has vw1 on it , i thought i had a pic but cant find at the mo ,they are easy to fit and they dont cover number plate or engine lid and you can open tailgate with it on .

  9. I have a towbar carrier, I would say to get a different exhaust and then fit a towbar, can carry more weight and you can get then dir up to 4 bikes. I have a 3er at the moment but will be upgrading t a 4er son
     
  10. I hope you don't fit yours like that

  13. I actually leave the two bottom brackets off, the weight of the bikes hold it down

    This is our one, from Halfords. It's a towbar one and easy to load.

  15. I have the Fiamma one too, very useful (although somewhat of a faff to fit - I can see now why people leave them on the bus when not using them!!). Fiamma do an extension kit to allow you to fit a 3rd bike onto them (have a look on eBay).
