  10. Reimo cycle rack

    T5 Conversions
    Our bikes don't have horizontal crossbars so they don't seem to fit properly on a rear door Reimo rack. The fixtures that you clamp on to the crossbar don't seem to rotate to other angles. As the instructions that come with the rack are almost non-existent does anyone have any advice about how...
