    In our experience whilst they are a good idea the Fiamma one is not man enough for the job and we would not fit one.

    The Thule one we cannot comment.

    Thanks Peter.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I mustsay the thule one seems to secure itself beter when raised.


    Thanks

    Totally agree with Peter the Fiamma offering is a joke. I had one of these and was amazed they dare sell them. I have big issues with most of the Fiamma products and refuse to buy them now.
    After the Fiamma self destructed I purchased a Thule, much better. Sturdy construction and quality components. There is really no comparison as the Thule wins hands down. Only thing to check is the extra weight of the rack + bikes + tow bar (if fitted) on the rear end and the increase due to the pendilum effect.
