- In-car/ van bike stands.
Does anyone have any recommendations for an in-car/ van bike stand to keep the bike upright during transit?
Rosebikes have this http://www.rosebikes.co.uk/article/xtreme-bike-stand/aid:113332
Any experiences/ ideas etc?
To fit in a Berlingo multispace.Posted 6 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
There was a thread on here a few months ago with details of bike holders some American guys had made for the back of their pick ups out of plastic piping – looked really clever for what it was.
Quite what the word to use in the forum search to track it down, I have no idea……Posted 6 years agotthewSubscriber
Yeah, I was looking for the same sort of solution a few months ago. In the end I just use bungies like Holyzeus.
Could just get a simple wheel stand, Halfords do them and screw it to the floor if the floor is lined and the van is big enough to load straight into.
edit – much like the Rose bikes one you linked to 😳 A Berlingo’s going to need the front wheel turned or taken off I think.Posted 6 years agoDickBartonMember
I used to own a Berlingo – bikes fitted in no probs at all – my Giant was a Large and the seatpost was almost a foot in the air –
With 2 bikes –
Where are you based? I have the first model of the Minoura Vergo – doesn’t look as ‘nice’ as the one shown above as mine looks a bit more industrial – it works for 2 bikes with front wheels off and QRs…I believe 15mm and 20mm adapters work on it. It sits in my garage doing nothing…if it is of any use, I’m more than happy to sell it on…
The version I have is a double version of this –
– except it doesn’t have the wee stabilising leg as the rack is twice the width and very stable…if this is any use to you let me know.Posted 6 years agouberscottSubscriber
Got a Thule 592 interior rack for sale if you’re interested. Bolted to the floor of my S-Max, very sturdy piece of kit.Posted 6 years agomugsys_m8Subscriber
I think I know your sister and Brother in Law: Alice and Adam?
Anyway, my mate has made a really good stand to clamp the front forks.
He got some old hubs and some sheet MDF. The whole thing is cleverly attached to the car by threading through tie down straps which are then threaded through the cargo hooks in the floor of the boot (scenic)
The bikes go infacing out, rear wheel on, front off (obviously). I’m planning to get round to making one.
Let me know if interested and I will try and get some photos off him.Posted 6 years ago
