Fiamma 3 bike rack

Postby Sir Brixalot » 23 Aug 2018, 16:06

What's the secret. I have a wrestling match trying to get three bikes on it. Is there a technique and are there accessories that make it easier

I just use no. 1 fixing stap then a ratchet strap to hold other bikes on. Didn’t get on with all those arms. Top to tail is the way too, as above. Will have 3 bikes on over weekend so will try to take pic

And when you do manage it, take a photo so you can do it next time! I get 4 on mine (aye, it’s got 4 fixings).

Thanks Da Dan. I've been chucking one of the bikes in the van to save hassle.
Didn't know there was a 4 bike rack for T25s

I’m not sure there is, I’ve always suspected a P.O. modified mine. The wheel channels aren’t completely parallel but the clamp arms look ok.

I've got 3 thick frame mountain bikes which go on (and then a wee one ratchet strapped) but I have moved clamp no 1 to one of the vertical rails (to seat post) which lets yo get the first bike a wee bit closer to the van.
