    For 2yrs we've had a Fiamma 4 bike cover for our two adult mountain bikes-it did the job,but was always a very tight fit and quite fiddly attaching the bungee hooks behind the bikes.
    At end of last yr it was showing signs of wear-a couple of holes that needed gaffer tape over them,and we felt it was time for a new one.
    We bought the Taylormade one with the double slit and flap at the back.We also changed our bikes to Giant electric bikes,which are slightly larger than our mountain bikes.
    This morning I put the bikes on the rack and fitted the new cover :thumb: It was much easier than the Fiamma and bikes are totally covered,even at the back between bikes and van.

    In defence, you do need to turn the bike handles 90 degrees if they are mountain bikes, makes it easier to fit cover.

    Pain but.

    Actually it's 90 deg. which I always did,and still do.Also removing the outer pedal makes a difference.:BigGrin:
    It's the same for both covers.

    We had the same with fiamna cover. Gaffer tape all over in the end.
    Taylormade cover not cheap but much better than fiamna. And easier to put on. We fold handles down and have a pedal we can turn being foldable bikes.Makes a nice little package on the back of the MH.With bungies to stop flapping in the wind
