    Default My Venter trailer Bicycle Carrier solution

    I decided to build a Bike rack for my trailer, I built it to carry 3 bikes. Then a day later decided, there's space for 5, and the baby will have a bike soon some day and changed it again. It worked out at about R 350, bolts etc included. I had primer paint left for the extra pieces i added the second time round, I must go get white paint to finish it this weekend. I used 25x25x2mm Sq tubing, (4x1 meter pieces). And I used 40x40x2mm Angle iron (4x1 meter pieces). Its light enough for the lid to stay open (without the bikes) Used threaded rod to secure the front forks of the bikes, The loos front wheels i will just cable tie to the bikes frames. To take off the three bikes front wheels takes a minute, so there no real hassle. The back wheels will be secured with a big cable tie around the angle iron.

    Maybe the idea(although simple) can help or inspire someone that needs the same type of thing, and doesn't want to spend R 3500 to buy one. I tried using the least amount of steel for weight, so no frame or anything extra.

    Some more angles.

    The second time round I decided to lift the front mounting points of the two newly inserted tracks with 150 mm, so that the extra bikes handles will be higher and not touch the middle one.

    A while back i changed the bicycle carrier so that one doesn't have to remove the front wheels. I added vertical sq tubing bars that can fold down,

    Dis juis die ding, ek haal dit nie meer af nie. ek sit die fiets net so op die sleepwa, slaan die support op in die middel en cable tie die twee wiele vas, en die frame van die fiets cable tie ek aan die reggop sq tubing pyp vas dis al. Ek sit n stukkie pool noodle aan die sq tubing bar vas om die fiets te beskerm.

    Dalk n bietjie kleinm maar dis niks. Trek elke wiel lekker styf vas met n sterk cable tie, sit pool noodle om die vertikale sq tubings wat jy ook vastrek met cable ties, en hy sal hou

    Hi Bostokkelos.

    Ek weet dit is nou al amper 'n jaar later, maar ek is nou in die situasie waar ek presies so 'n fietsrak op my waentjie gaan moet monteer.

    Ek hou baie van jou uitleg en wil net weet of jy enige probleme ondervind met die waentjie se deksel, waar die boute van die fietsrak deurgaan? Ek neem aan jy het die deksel met 'n "flatbar" aan die binnekant ge"sandwich", maar veroorsaak die vibrasies en beweging nie die gate om ovaal se word nie? Ook, het jy slegs die buitenste twee dwarslatte op die deksel vasgebout, of al 4?

    Hi, ek het al die dwars balke vasgebout. Flat bar aan die binnekant net in die middel van die deksel. Op die kop kante het ek groot dik washers gebruik met Riv nuts. Geen vibrasies of niks nie nee.
