    Hello
    Has anybody used a Hindermann bike cover from Roadpro? If so are they worth the money? :thumb: :cry:

    Thanks in advance
    Les

    Not what you are asking.. but have tried many .. home made and proprietary , and to be frank, a waste of time.. the dirt still gets up inside.... plus you also have a filthy cover to clean...

    If your bikes are expensive and you are trying to protect them, my advice (from personal experience of having two stolen) .. is .. DON'T take them.. they will end up growing legs.. take old bikes, no one will nick them and you will have a more relaxing time..

    :thumb:Hi Les, we have a Hindermann concept cover. Bought it a year ago and it seems to be likely to last longer than some of the cheaper ones. The all round zip is handy but you need to use straps to stop flapping. We carry 2 bikes and I think it could be improved by being smaller. They say up to 3 bikes and I reckon we could get 4 in. Hence you need straps. It does not stop all the rain as zips let rain through. Easy to fit after first time. Comes in its own bag which we have never managed to get it back in again.
    Like all covers it gets very dirty but is easy to clean and dry. Would I buy again? Not sure. I might buy cheap and replace more frequently.
    Cheers
    Bernie

    Hi Bernie
    Thanks for the info. I would be looking for a few years use for the price. Maybe have to look at something else. Any recommendations out there?

    Cheers
    Les

    Poncho

    Go to an Army surplus store and buy a poncho. Strong and with eyelets on all corners so easy to attach bungies :thumb:
