Thanks, I did not know of such a site.

Likely won't carry more than 2 at a time... At least for the foreseeable future. Could always throw a child's bike inside the car.
It seems like the platform style ones would be more stable... Any idea if this is true? Also it needs to work with a Y frame so I'm thinking that would mesh best as well...

you can get an attachment that will connect the stem to the seat post to provide a top tube for the rack to grab, but ya, the platform ones are great.

I see... looks they they go by "tension bar". Cheap/good solution but I do think the platform is the way to go... thx for the infoes.

Check out this child labor crafted recycled tin foil materialization of our amazing global economy:

If I have it shipped to my co-worker's US PMB it'd be under $50 shipped :lol: what could go wrong? *bikes fall off and cause a school bus full of blind kinds to go off the road*

Oh cool... I would like to spend as little as possible lol. It would depend on the brand etc. No big rush as I'll need it for the spring. I'm digging the platform ones right now but even if it's not one Lmk the details!

Nifty how it folds down while keeping the bikes perpendicular with the ground! Does here's have the step down accessory to 1 1/4"? Other websites showing that model say it does but I wanted to find out specifically because I wouldn't be able to use it without that piece.

As for price I hate playing that game when I don't know the condition it's in and I don't want to insult anybody :)... I was hoping to spend as little as possible for something of quality and that rack seems to have good reviews so I'd be interested.

Bump :)

Tristan, where's she located? Maybe it would make sense for me to swing by and check it out?

Hey sorry I was in florida all last week.

She thinks it has the step down and it's practically new. She would probably take 80 for it as she paid 200. Let me know if you want me to bring it to guelph for you.

Lol.. I bet it's amazing the stuff we all have laying around that others want/need. To bad it wasn't easier to document everything in your house to list. :P
