Audi A1 Bike Rack Options

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a plug and play bike rack for my Audi A1.

I was told that Thule don't make a rack for my car.

I really don't want to put a tow bar on my car just for my bike and also can't fit my 29" bike in the car even with the seats down.

 

Any one got a solution? or anyone with an A1 got a bike rack that worked for them?

Here we go, this is your best bet. 

 

Will ratchet onto your car, I have done this on a friends A1. 

 

You can add some plastic, but i never did and had no issue. 

 

Its a platform rack so your bike will love you. 

 

You can lock it onto your car.

towbar with thule velo compact

 

I had the thule raceway three, surface damage and not sturdy on rough terrain.

 

my 2c

I am of the opinion that all these platform racks are specifically for Road bikes. I also find that the bikes sway on the second and third fixing point cause the attaching arm is too long. I make use of ratchet straps to make sure they are secure for long trips

Just a bit of mission just for a bike rack. Would prefer to get something that doesn't involve a bunch of garage work. Also pretty steep to install. 

 

Considering a roof rack as well maybe.

You rate this will work on the A1? Others in this post reckon it won't fit...
