    Bike rack arm removal

    Hi Guys, I’ve tried searching but can’t find how to remove the arms on a genuine VW cycle carrier? The knobs unscrew but don’t open the jaws wide enough on the clamps and it stops turning before opening. I’d like to remove the arms, dismantle and lube to see if I can fix. Failing that I’ll have...

    Mounting recovery boards to bike rack

    Made up some simple brackets to secure my recovery boards to the bike rack: I’ll still use a tie down to secure them but at least having the locking fittings it should slow the thieves down a little. https://www.toolstation.com/stainless-steel-threaded-bar/p45452 Thule THUL5 526010...

    My modified tailgate spoiler to suit a bike carrier

    I have a Caravelle Exec which I upgraded to from a sportline styled T5.1 Kombi. I love the new bus but as I have the seats I can’t have bikes inboard...therefore use the OEM 4 bike rack. I’m not a fan of the tailgate without a spoiler - it’s a little boxy in my opinion. I wanted a spoiler but...

    Bike lift for rear e-bike rack

    I’m looking for some kind of bike lift to assist in getting heavy bikes up onto the rear tailgate mounted bike rack. I’ve seen fiamma and Thule versions but they are only for motorhomes from what I’ve seen. Has anyone come across such a Lift?

    Wanted Barn door bike rack (fiamma type).

    I'm looking into modifying a bike rack to fit my barn doors with spoiler. Anyone got an old/used/scruffy fiamma type one they want rid of as it will most likely get chopped/modified and powder coated black? Cheers.
