Do you, or would you use one of these racks to ferry your bike around?

Considering this as decent used single bike trailers at sensible prices (i.e. a good saving on new price, unlike some items seen on Ebay recently!) seem to be as rare as rocking horse shit up ere!

Hi,

Got one, use it quite a lot, bought it from Sandifords, can't remember how much but never had an issue with it!

Cheers,
Carl.

Not sure about these bike racks so a trailer would be a better purchase.On the other hand my mate has one of these racks on the back of his Discovery,this like having a push bike on the back of a family car.
I used one 15 years ago when i was doing MX,it was on the back of 306 and only suitable for short journeys,slow/medium speeds(nothing over 50 MPH)

Had a wee lookie at the site and i think the rack is a little expensive,try Dave Cooper on Kent.He will do a bike rack for round 60 pounds and a trailer for 199 pounds.The choice is yours.

Try www.davecooper.co.uk or Trials and MX news out evert Friday.

As Zanx said, max nose weight of the car is the stumbling block with these racks.

Just consider yourself lucky that Funners is on holiday, he has a thing about these racks.

used to carry a cr125 on the back of a pug 309, was a bit young and stoopid at the time.

wheelies were common in the car, wouldnt even think about using one now

unless ya own a big ferk orff 4x4...dont bother....the things are dangerous and if you get stopped or worse have an off.......it big fines hooge points and the lot......it comes under dangereous loads/driving as the weight is hung way off the back of the vehicle....

No offence taken......
it just amuses me again and again when people think you can hang 160KGS off the back end of a car and it'll be ok..
