    Hi..

    So many makes and varieties..... what is the best make and model number for a two bike carrier to fit our Elnagh Sleek with a back window.

    Any suggestions or experiences on fitting also welcome.

    Many thanks..

    Alll the Fiamma bike racks can be found on my website, if its got brackets fitted it will be one of the Fiamma Triganos and no brackets a Pro C or a CL

    Hope that helps, but we don't export, sorry.

    Peter,

    Can you recommend a bike rack for my Compass Commodore, it has the spare wheel on the back. It has a tow bar.

    If you have a tow ball, Thule make an excellent well made carrier that clamps onto it .. comes complete with lighting ..

    I had a three bike model .. I liked it because it was low and easy to lift the bikes onto, it also has a lock to make it difficult for the thief to remove it .. and when not required easy to remove and store.

    friction .. it clamps onto the ball, there is a lever to tighten it .... the ball must be of course be clean and grease free.

    I was sceptical before purchasing but it does work well .. I sold it to CLS when I sold the RV .

    We purchased an Elnagh Slim 5 from Auto Caravanas Navarro in Murcia. They fitted a Fiamma bike rack with no difficulty and were very helpful. That's not too far from Malaga. :Smile:

    Re Jims idea, I have one of those, I use it on occasions as a base/platform to put my motorbike on as we already have a bike rack on the van, however I have used it for additional cycles when not taking the motorbike :Wink:

    Here's a pic of it in action on route back from France last year :thumb:
