We got a high mounted rear one yesterday, put it on today but it covers the lights and so needs a lighting board. Seems too much hard work finding out how to wire that in - so am thinking about getting some roof bars and then getting a roof mounted bike carrier? However how many can you put on? We have 3 bikes, one mans, one womans and one childs bike. Thanks - looking for the best way to transport all 3 bikes! Any advice be great

they hold bikes.

The rack I bought takes 3 bikes but there are adjustable dials-like large screws-either side that lift the rack up and out.This then means that they are clear of the lights-not sure that makes sense but it took a lot of working out when first used.
I didn't want to use roof bars as I wouldn't be able to lift the bikes up and off!

My lights up too high, (have a focus) - its so annoying!

Glad it kinda made sense-If you take the front wheels off that may make a difference.then use a ratchet tie on the back wheels.

One man, one ladies and one child's bike would normally be OK for the racks I have seen, but they state maximum loadings (as should your Focus manual).

Thanks will look in the manual - so you think 3 bikes would fit on the roof?

Out of memory the limit is 75 kg for most Thule products, but it has been a few years since I last looked into it and that means I might have changed that number or they might have gone up or down. I would hope your bikes do not weigh that much.

I would say probably yes but check when you buy the bars what their load limit is.

Thanks will have to try to find out how much our bikes weigh! This is my bike - but it does not say how much it weighs http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_253703_langId_-1_categoryId_165499#dtab
