Bike rack question

Hi all,

I know there have been a few threads on 'which bike rack' for a car, but I haven't found quite the answer I need.

I'm looking for a bike rack that will hold 2 kids bikes (20" and 24" wheels) as well as an adult bike, that's also easy to set up/remove. Preferably not too expensive either!

Can anyone recommend one which fits those criteria?

Many thanks in advance,
Josh

    Last time I looked, Halfords had a good range.
    It wasn't advertised, so it caught me by surprise, but if you do click and collect, you get 10% off the internet price.

    If you have a towbar I'd suggest a Thule ride on 3. Not sure if you can get a similar rear bumper mounted one. Atera do a similar one as well. Personally I wouldn't have a roof mounted one as it's hard lifting up and down from a SUV.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • I have a t32 xtrail and starting to look for a rack, however I think I will be good roof mount. The rear spoiler may cause issues if, like me you don’t have a tow bar.

    Thanks guys.

    I'll see if Halfords can advise on whether a rear one will fit with the spoiler.

    That's annoying if I need to get a tow bar - makes it all quite expensive.

    I’d be interested what they say. I do have a Solaris bones from a precious car but not tried it on the XT. It was the owners forum where I read you struggling with rear mounted and no tow bar.
