(BYFORD, WESTERN AUSTRALIA AUS)
Good if you have clearance
Having a 4x4 off road wagon with lifted suspension, carrying two or more mountain bikes can be a pain. We got around our problem by using a 7x5 trailer with roof rack bars mounted on it, with these bike racks in turn attached to them. This allows access to the back of the vehicle through the tailgate without having to lift the bikes off the rack first. The tilt type racks can give problems with having to take the weight of the bikes whilst operating the latch and then having to reach over the bikes to get in. It also allows us to carry other gear in the trailer as well. We can fit four bikes across the width of the trailer and they have been carried over rough off bitumen tracks without damage. Great for those long weekend, camp out, mountain bike treks. The 594XT is easy to fit, if you can construct flat pack furniture and they can handle most bike configurations as we have carried road racing bikes, 30 speed full suspension alloy mountain bikes, even kids street bikes. Good racks for a standard vehicle if you have enough overhead clearance when bikes are loaded.
