    Does any one know of a decent easy to fit cover for two cycles on a rear cycle carrier. Just binned my latest, holes all over it. Fiamma does not get very good reviews. BUSBY::bigsmile:

    Have a look at Oxford. We have the Stormex which is actually a motorcycle cover but covers our 4 bicycles, on a tow-bar cycle rack, a treat. Don't know how to put link on here but Google will find it! :thumb:

    Our Tailor Made ones have been excellent had them for 9 years of hard work, bit faded but that is all. would recommend them.

    We had a Fiamma 2 bike cover for the tin tent (front mounted bike rack) and it lasted just 1yr as the handle bars just started to poke through.

    Having got through two Fiamma bike covers, I bought a BBQ cover from Argos. It is not only better quality but its cheaper too!! and big enough to cover two bikes :thumb:

    Argos catalogue number 345/0712

    Was £19.99, now £7.99 !!!

    We had a Fiamma one - it did not last long at all, so now I use an old scooter cover - looks old but does the job!

    Just got our cover delivered from bags4everything. Put it on, much easier than Fiamma and a better fit. We're off to France with it next week so that should be a good test.

    With the weather we are having at the moment we'd need a dry suit for our bikes to keep the rain out:Sad:

    Bike Covers

    We have a bike cover from Bags4Everything and have used it continuously all year sun and showers for the past 7 years. Best bit of kit available. Rubberised inside, bikes are kept dry even in the most awful weather. :thumb::thumb:

    cycle cover

    We have also bought the BBQ cover from Argos. We had to put two slits in the back to make fit over cycle carrier but does a great job. We paid full price for it and thought it was great value so at the r:thumb:educed price its an absolute steal!!
