  1. Hi all TGIF! I'm looking to buy a towbar mounted bike rack (seems to be the overwhelming preference) and have been checking out the Thule EasyFold XT2. It's fairly pricey at R17999. Has anyone got one and would recommend it? I'm a little confused at all the various options in their range: VeloSpace, VeloCompact, EuroRide, etc. I need to carry max two mountain bikes (alu), or 1 road bike (carbon).The platform rack seems to be popular.The tilt feature is nice to access the bootI have a 13 pin connector on my two bar (but I see you can get 7 pin and vice versa).Other than that, I don't know much more about towbar bike racks. Thanks in advance for any input and/or suggestions!
  2. Morning All I have a detachable towbar mounted on my vehicle, with the safety pin that just pulls out.(Circled in Red) I am wondering if anyone has come accross a safety pin that can somehow be locked to the towbar, when my bike rack is attached, its obviously very easy for a "skelm" to just pull out the pin and remove the whole towbar including my bike rack and bikes, I have searched all over but cannot find any local solution for this, I have attached the picture of the lock mechanism I am looking for, but cannot find any local stockists of these - any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. Hi Hubbers, Just looking to find out if anyone has installed an aftermarket Thule Fixed Towbar on a VW Golf (GTI) or any other car for that matter, & what is your thoughts on the product. I am looking for a solution to carry 2 bikes, and am against the roof racks & was advised against the hatch back carriers because the boot spoiler could get damaged. The Thule fitment center quoted me R3100 for the fixed tow bar & then R1200 for the 2 bike carrier, so all fitted R4300. My only concern was how it will look on the vehicle, as they would need to cut into the bottom of the bumper to install the tow bar. I've been told that I should maybe visit a Kwik fit etc, as it might be cheaper & they do the Bosal tow bars, but not sure as those ones may not look as good as the thule ones. Any thoughts, ideas, advise for me on this one. Thanks guys...
