    Default Bike carrier

    Hi
    I have a 4 bike carrier as per attached photo. M disco 3 has got a removable towbar, so there is no place for the mounting plate to bolt on.
    Does anyone have any clever ideas on something/somehow for a towbal bracket that I can buy or build to attach this carrier to the Disco?

    Regards

    I have a Thule 2 bike rack that attaches onto the tow ball. I know there is a 3 bike version.

    I think there is a point that it may be easier and cheaper to replace bike rack.

    Look at something like an antenna tow ball clamp. There are loads of variations on it, and its something that is easy to make/modify for your needs.

    But, if the bikes are worth the money, Id get a Thule platform.
