    Just found this:


    They Fit! by Alex Leigh, on Flickr

    That’s a massive XL Canfield ‘the one’ (longest bike in history!), a nearly as massive XL Alpine and my more normal human sized Rocket on my trailer. The issues as I remember them were the canfield wheels were right on the edge of the trailer runners but that is one long bike. We needed a fair amount of padding to stop the rubbing of Maxles (front and back), and – for security – we strapped the bikes together so if one did go, they all went!

    80MPH to Les Ges. No issue at all. We might have been close to the trailer max weight but it didn’t manifest itself as a problem.

    Regarding the halfords one….

    1) it takes two people to put it on
    2) it doesn’t lock
    3) doesn’t tilt
    4) gets poor reviews….

    Buy nice or buy twice!

    Err nope. It gets put on by me, has quick release mechanism, it tilts, it locks and folds away and goes in the boot a piece of piss.

    Regarding parking sensors. Mine sets them off as soon as I put it in reverse but just press the button on the dash to switch them off each time.

    I’ve been using a Mottez four bike cRrier until recently.
    Ridiculously well built – would probably write off anything that hit it, tilts, no touching of bikes due to size, lights, etc.
    Never need to carry four bikes anymore so will be in the classifieds soon.

    My new set up, as mentioned above.

    Potentially could be interested in that Hammyuk?

    I have the buzzrack one. It’s really solid, and can be tilted to get into the boot. It does interfere with the parking sensor but I just live with it.

    Had a Thule one for quite a few years, it has been to the Alps eight times with four bikes on and is used on a weekly basis at home. Never had a problem with it

    Last bike is attached with a strap as some scrote tried to get the bike off but only managed to dammage the lock attachment.

    I have one of these. Badged as Diamant, but the box it came in said Towsure. I expect other companies badge these as their own product too.

    No assembly, required other than to fit the number plate, folds flat in seconds, nice quality finish, full wiring and lighting, storage bag, everything locks with keys (included). An ingenious little design for much less than the well known brand – I paid around £150 last year, but seems like they are more now. This is a 2 bike only rack.

    Diamant tow bar rack.
