rear bike rack
#1
I've been googling and not really sure on the results, 'Roofbox' say berlingo can't have them.

Any ideas folks, also it is for two electric bikes..

thanks

Thanks, there seem to be some from £30 to £90 then jump up to the hundreds.

Bikes are 22kg each so cheap ones are not up to that weight .

I don´t know about rear bike racks (actually I have seen some nice ideas to adapt a model made for a VW transporter to Berlingo/Partner that can take up to 4 bikes), but I have a roofbox kit that I install on my Modutop roof. The instructions say I can have up to 70kg total weight on the bars (35kg in each). More than enough for 2 bikes...

Thanks for the info, Luis how do you get the bikes on the roof? serious I'd need a ladder (I'm 5ft 8in).

I saw a pic of the VW one, you have to drill holes etc (not keen on doing that) and couldn't tell if that needed a tow bar.

Spoke to Citroen and a rear rack is a big No No unless tow bar fitted,

Exactly: with a ladder and normally someone handing me the bike...but I can also climb the ladder carrying the bike, although it is a bit dangerous...

regarding the vw Fiamma rack (https://www.berlingoforum.com/thread-13472.html), I think the drilling is on the rack itself, not on the car.

And you can also buy proper ones, like this: https://paulchensystem.net/products/en/b...go-ii.html

Both these options do not need the tow bar fitted...The racks sit on the rear door on the top, near the hinges, and on the bumper at the bottom...the paulchen system also has some tension on the bottom part of the door, as I could see from the pictures...

Cheers.

I personally wouldn't have bikes off that long pivoting rear door incase it pulls it out of line(?). I feel it should be towbar mounted or roof bar/carrier. I have the later and I use a small footstool when installing a bike.

I have a roof rack that im going to fit to the berlingo onto the orig roof cross bars but this rack has a mechanism that you stand at the side of the van press 2 buttons at head height and it slides out to the side and drops down at an angle to load and unload i will easily get a bike on there or ladder depending on what i need to carry

I assume there is some reason why you don't put your bikes inside the vehicle? are you using all the rear seats or carrying lots of other luggage? with the centre rear seat and the centre console removed you'll get both your bikes in, upright with wheels on, and still have luggage space either side. I often take all 3 rear seats out and fit up to 4 bikes in.
