Pitch forks at the ready!!!!
Rear bike carriers are a bit of a minefield especially this type, they are almost all a bit crap, and you need to do your homework on which one fits your car best. I guess you have tried a few combinations to get on the back of your CRV, but that pic looks way wrong.
EDIT: that Zimmer frame is ace 😀

I think I may have been the victim of a bit of false description bad seller.
I’m not going to say who or where but I’ve bought a bike carrier 2nd hand and it seems the description may have been wrong.
I’ve paid PP gift so not much come back, I know, I know!
The ad said the bike carrier would hold 4 bikes but I can only get 2 on maximum and I’ve tried every which way.
It’s also not very stable on the back of our Honda.
Seller says I can post it back at my cost for a refund but it weighs so much that the postage is more than it’s worth.
Not sure what to do. Name, names?? or suck it up and put it down to experience.Posted 4 years ago
I could not tell if it was an Audi or a Skoda I apologise for that and I assume all big cars are 4 x 4 ‘s and for show as a real person would have a landy clearly.
I was wondering if the absence of a spare wheel altered the angle of the v so the bar was sort of perpendicular to the road- though it would then be quite low I assumed so wheels may catch and bigger ones [ 29 er]more likely. Perhaps a fat bike could absorb the shock of skimming – do you have one?Posted 4 years ago
Ie try it on another car and see if it works as dont you need spare wheel specific ones – perhaps lend it him as surely his 6 kids – do kids still ride bikes these days? – have some bikes between them?
The bar looks long enough for four but clearly at that angle it is all wrong.
I’ve emailed the seller this thread.
They have told me it’s fitted wrong and should be the other way round,
I’ve been outside and tried it the other way round and it fits much better and I can now get 4 bikes on it.
The problem now is because it’ s on the bonnet I can ‘t see too well out of the frontPosted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
Just looking at the photo I can see its in the wrong place, and upside-down.Posted 4 years ago
The foam padding should be at the top of the rear window, and at the bottom; it’s quite clearly never, ever intended to fit over a spare wheel. Even I can work that out, and oim fick, oi is!
