Three Of The Best: Bike Racks

Pendle Wheel Support Bike Rack, £181.70

This system requires your full concentration for the initial build but once constructed it's a no-fuss rack that will fit most vehicles with a tow bar. The wheels of your bike sit into D-loops, which are part of the main frame, while a vertical bar separates the bikes and provides a fixing point for the seat tube. Three straps per bike hold everything securely in place and a light and number-plate board are part of the basic setup. The real beauty of this system, however, is its versatility: the basic package comes with D-loops for two bikes but this can be converted to take three or four bikes, and you can also buy different D-loops for children's bikes or to fit wider mountain bike tyres.

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.
