how many bikes does it hold



Doesn't seem to have any official spec. on this but looking on one of the reviews when you go to the deal someone makes this comment:
"Considering the wieght limit this rack should take two adult cycles and possibly one small childs. Dont think I would transport three adult bikes."

thanks

just remember... the law says you need a number plate and set of lights visible at all times so you should really put a number board on rigged onto a power outlet...
although there's never any coppers on the road these days .

Thanks

no coppers on the road.....
famous last words!

Good price if it fits you car. This type of carrier is unlikely to be suitable if you have any kind of rear spoiler on your tailgate. I had to get a Saris Bones for my bike, which was 4 times the price of this

Ordered, thanks. Isn't it funny how when you are shopping around for something in particular, it will suddenly pop up here!!

this thing looks like an accident waiting to happen!

with all things you get what you pay for.

While Thule bars are considerably more expensive they will last forever

This is identical to mine. Can confirm it has carried 2 adult and one child bike on the back of my 02 plate Zafira. I do wrap a ratchet strap around bikes and tubes for extra piece of mind whilst driving and make it harder to steal bikes if car left alone for a while.
I wouldn't use on cars with wrap around windows on the tailgate, as my instructions state the straps must hook around metal on the edges of the tailgate, but the picture shows the side straps hooked around the glass on this Discovery.
Another benefit is I have still managed to open my tailgate (with help) when loaded which you can't do if you have the carriers that sit on the bumper.

I know this is suitable for a hatchback but the reviews have put me off this one... I have a toyota avensis hatchback, can anyone recommend one they have used on a similar car that isn't too expensive?

ordered! hot!

Oh dear god when will they stop selling this kind of rack?

if you don't have a towvbar to fit a carrier to please, please, please buy a proper fit roof mounted carrier and if you can't afford to you'd be better of not carrying them on the car at all.

not voted either way as whilst a good price I would never encourage anyone to buy one

Why? Never had a problem with my Saris Bones rear mounted rack.

Saris are the only non tow bar mounted racks that are safe
The saris rs is a great rack, however decided to change to a tow bar one this year

What 888 said.

Universal fit means compromise.

In the car, on the roof or on a towbar rack, no problem because they're fastened securely. There's just too much flex in these strap on racks when loaded.
