Three Of The Best: Bike Racks

Mont Blanc EasyGrip S2, £135

If you don't have a tow bar fitted to your car and you are looking for a temporary bike carrier this is a good option. It takes a little time to set up out of the box but once built it's relatively quick to fit to the boot and over the back window. It'll hold two bikes and they both sit partially above the car with the wheels over the back window but clear of the registration plate. That said, you can't access the boot when the rack is fitted. Although bikes are easy to fit into the frame and are securely held by arms that swing down and clamp on the crossbar it doesn't always feel that way and there is some buffeting from the wind, particularly at motorway speeds.

I've got a 4 bike Pendle towbar mounted carrier it is very simple to use. Even the initial set up is easy if a little time consuming. Just make sure that all the moving parts stay well lubricated because they are liable to seize.

Pricey, but a good bit of kit.

Oops non of these bike racks are suitable for my car.I have no towbar or suitable roof for the montblanc.  I have a soft top and use a  ' Bones saris 2.' Easy to fit and very strong. Plus easy to remove when not in use.
