Towbar Mounted Cycle carriers

Towbar Mounted Cycle Carriers are a type of rear mounted cycle carrier as opposed to roof mounted cycle carriers

Towbar Mounted Cycle Carriers offer a safe and secure way of carrying up to 5 cycles on the back of your car. They are so much more stronger and secure than standard cycle carriers that strap to the back of your car. Being mounted to the tow bar makes them so much secure so there is no movement and so no chance of scratching your car or vehicle.

The advantage of having a rear attaching cycle carrier compared to attaching on the roof is that allows space for a roof box giving valuable storage space. Attaching at the rear also makes it so much easier to get to rather than having to stretch to put your cycle on the roof and will keep your car more aero dynamic and stable.

There are 2 types of cycle carrier that attaches to the tow ball, one is stand on carriers type and the other are hang on carriers.

Stand On Cycle Carriers

Stand On Cycle Carriers support bikes from the bottom and are the most secure way to carry bikes on your car.

The advantage of this type of cycle carrier is that the bikes are secured to the rack so that they cannot move around at all so they don't damage your car or vehicle.

The negative against this type of cycle carrier is that they are a bit more involved and so cost more money in general.

They are also heavier and tend to be larger and so can be a bit more difficult when taking off and storing.

Hang On Cycle Carriers

Hang On Cycle Carriers support bikes from the top, usually by hooking through the frame.

The main advantage of this type of cycle carrier is that when they are used with a flange towbar the towball is left free so that it can still tow at the same time.

The only limitation is that you do need to make sure that there is enough clearance between the bikes and what you are towing.

They are also generally cheaper and more compact making it easier for storage than the Stand On type carriers. The negative to this is that they are not as secure as Stand On Carriers.
