interesting thought.... perhaps you can put it to Thule? Interesting to see what they say.
Does anyone have any experience of trying to fit the attachment bracket together with a stabilser bracket - e.g. Bulldog Q200?
I've looked at mine and I think the Thule brack may foul the Bulldog bracket.

Also, the blurb says you can use this whilst towing. Well, since this carrier can take 60KG and itself weighs 8 KG, then that is a load of 68KG on your towbar. The Typical tow bar is weight limit is 75KG (some cars do 90KG). So most of your allowance is taken up by the bike carrier. Then you want to add your caravan with a recommended nose weight typically of 75KG (again some are more) to ensure stability - and your towbar limit is exceed and you're towing illegally.
You may get away with a lightly loaded trailer, but I can't see how it can possibly suggest a caravan. Even if only loading 2 bikes and your towbar has a higher limit than 75KG, the figures still don't seem to add up. Adult MTB typically 10-15KG, x2 plus carrier weight = min 28KG, max 38KG. Add on caravan nose weight and your over 100KG!
I now have the best of both worlds. This 9705 and roof bars with 2 cycle carriers.
No more wrestling with 4 bikes on the back, and skint knuckles etc.
Trying to fit four bikes on these is a nightmare if you have oversize tubing, rear suspension or a ladies frame. I bought one then had to buy false cross bars for the ladies bikes and it was still complicated. Now I have a tow bar rack in which the wheels slot in. Not voted either way.
Many thanks, we've been looking for a thule 970, the code works for that one too. Happy days !!

We've had a pair of these for a few years, and they've been great. I really wanted something i could definitely use with the 'T' groove on my roofbars, and was drawn by the looks too.
Two very valid points made above though - you have to be able to reach your bikes down without any roof-trashing mishap..., and when we put on our fat Maxxis tyres we had to deflate them slightly to wedge them in the groove. Itwould have been nice to have proper locks on them as well.
Cool - just got myself some
Calm down dears, it's only a bike rack!

In true playground tradition............................. he started it!
Calm down dears, it's only a bike rack!

I'd love some of these but I'm only a shortarse and don't think I could lift our bikes onto the roof.

Can anyone recommend a towbar rack that will carry 2 adult and 2 childrens bikes please?
I take it your irritability is aimed at me. Seeing as my "research" only went as far as owning both a 530 and a Barracuda (the latter being bought after comparing it to a 591, the former because one of my bikes won't fit in a Barracuda) then I clearly have no idea what I am talking about.

So I assume you don’t own the Scott or the 591 you were comparing with the 530 and the Barracuda?
Its annoying to be quoted then have someone try to correct you with a statement that is fundamentally wrong. The fundamental issue is you were comparing the 530s to the inferior Scott and the inferior Barracuda to the 591s.

Performance? It's a bike rack, not a combustion engine.

A relevant definition of performance is the manner in which or the efficiency with which something fulfils its intended purpose.

They may be made of different materials, but the design of the racks are their defining features. The Scott and the 530/575 are similar in that they require you to hold the bike in place whilst securing the frame arm/straps. The Barracuda and the 591 are comparable in that their design allows you to release the bike from your hands whilst you strap it down.

There are a raft of differences between the carriers. You were also claiming the Scott was at a great price when it was about £39 delivered.

Its also interesting that you "assume" you still need to hold onto the bike whilst using a Barracuda - you might want to consider taking more time with your own research, because that is exactly what you don't have to do, making this very different from the 530.

I don’t think you can criticise me for making an observation from a photograph and owning up to it in the same sentence. I was actually inviting comment. The 591 clamps from the side whereas the photo of the Barracuda looks like it clamps underneath the down tube. That being the case the mechanism on the 591 is far superior as you can position the arm at 45 degrees before slotting the bike on and straight in to the self adjusting jaws of the clamp. The comment I made about the Barracudas was that if the plastic gutter is the only thing holding it upright I wouldn’t be releasing it from my hands whilst I clamped it or fastened any straps. I would if using the 591s.

And "for the record" I was only pointing out the main design function of the Barracuda which won it a Which? award is not shared by a 530 and therefore it is not a fair comparison.

As well as remarking on this feature you were comparing the 530s to the inferior Scott and the inferior Barracuda to the 591s and for some reason quoting me. I was comparing the main description features of the racks (namely the width and weight of bikes they take) and pointing out that the 530s were better value as they coped with the same, but cost less. You've also pointed out the the 530s are more versatile as you got one because your bike didn't fit on the barracuda!
