I find it wierd that there are soo many vans around plymouth that just seem to sport a good ol bike rack without sporting the bike? Is it a fashion thing or are they just a pain to remove??? I dont think ive ever seen a bike rack with bikes on it to be honest!

Could someone please explain to meT:T:

Don,t think the weather has helped biking this year , I hav,nt yet been anywhere that i could have used the bike without being soaked hence hav,nt had the bikes on the rack at all !

It's not just a bike rack! We use them for transporting our BBQ's & fire pits to the camp sites I: well not me as I don't have a bike rack as yet :* but some of the other guys do T:T:

My Fiamma stays put, as its a total pain to take on and off. Plus its a huge item to store off the van.
Likewise, ours just stays on the back of the van. Mind you very quick and handy when you need to take four bikes.

I go to Plymouth every year for the Bontraget 24/12, a 12 or 24 hour mountain bike race, it was on July 7/8 this year. About 2000 people take part and there are loads of T4's and 5's there!!

Jesus, you must be bored LOL: Could be that after use said bikes have been removed and stored, or they have not needed a bike that day, or they can't be bothered removing the rack, or it came with the van, or.................................................

My Van came with a Fiamma, never used it that often so sold it on. Just bought a new bike, need a bike rack now, Sod's Law..
