    Does anyone know anything about a Witter ZX89 Quad cycle carrier? The previous owner fitted it as he didn't want to drill into the rear.

    http://www.witter-towbars.co.uk/cycle_carriers/cycle_carrier_ZX89.

    sorry can't get the link to work

    Dave's bike has a crossbar but mine, a lady's bike, doesn't. How does the other one go on?

    The next problem is that we may need a lighting board if the bikes obscure the number plate. We are going to sort it tomorrow. We don't know if the previous owner used a lighting board or not.

    Just wondered if anyone else had the same system and had any tips?
    Thanks for all advice,
    Lucille

    Used similar ones on cars being Witter it should do the job adequately Witter products are well engineered.

    With this type of carrier if you don't have a crossbar you can usually hook the bikes over the carrier bar using the gap between the forks and frame.

    There is an adaptor available for ladies bikes, essentially a removable cross bar.

    image.jpg @staging lady Hi Lucille, don't know if you knew but Witter have a good depot on DEESIDE Industrial Estate, about 30miles from you. If you get stuck would it be worth calling in or giving them a ring.
