I feel a bit daft for posting this but here goes. I have a Fiamma bike rack that holds 4 bikes, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to secure them. I can do the lowerr straps around the wheels, it is the one around the frame that is defeating me....help.

my 3 bike rack has arms all various lengths and fit over the bars of the bikes, ladies bikes I put the arms on the sides rather than the top, cant see how you can hold them in place without them !!!

I cannot secure them that is the point. How do I thread the straps through the brackets on the top?

I can never get my blockers to work properly so i just use bungee cords I find them more secure and can get the bikes closer to the rack with them that said I only carry 2 bikes and I turn the handlebars sideways

Without a picture it is difficult to know what the problem is, but in my experience it can be difficult with bikes with a strongly sloping top tub, bikes with very large diameter top tubes and bikes without a top tube, such as some folding bikes. You can usually cobble something up, such as clamping onto seat tubes but with 4 bikes I suspect it could hard to reach the bits you need to on the outer bikes.

Im interested to read the replies as we haven't tried our rack yet. Are you talking about the one that goes on the back of MH or on towbar?

4 bikes on a rack - that must extend of the back of the MH a lot an increase the rear axle weight no end! Check that you are not overloaded!
