Does anyone know of a good bike cover that fits the bike rack on the rear of a PVC? Needs to fit an offset rack.

Thanks

Mick

I can tell you the Fiamma ones fit well, but are insubstantial. Ours was already wearing out after less than two years. After nearly four it is full of holes and ready for the bin.

I am currently contemplating trying to make one from a cheapo barbecue cover.

Just watch where you use it , 3rd day in Spain and I've had mine slashed obviously someone checking if bikes were locked etc ...so bike cover now has a 12 inch cut in it.

Opps, maybe the lower cost one is better than someone slashing a Hinderman one!

I had a Fiamma- it looked like the flag at the Alamo after 1 season

One of the best i had was a ARGOS BBQ cover with some slots and eyelets put on in the right places...Didnt last that long but very cheap. BUSBY.

I'm thinking that's the best idea -- cheap and cheerful.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Settled on a cover from Van Comfort, not an expensive one, but it looks effective. Rather concerned by Northernraider's comment on slashing!

Fiamma covers are insubstantial but it is reflected in the low price.
The cover works adequately and is used to the limit of its capability (four bikes on the rack)
We seem to replace it every three or four years, so it's a tenner per year, I can live with that ;).

I have just ordered some eyelets and a tool for fitting them, so that I can experiment on adapting very cheap bike/barbecue covers to do the job. Will report back on my success/failure at some point!
