Hi all,
New to the world of VitalMTB but lovin it.....have kids and now some serious mountain bikes and fun to be had.
problem though is the carrying of bikes. I have noticed on some of the videos that cars have a vertical system, where it appears that the rider just hooks on the bike.
Can anyone help me with this, its becoming painful to unhook front wheel on 4 bikes and put them on the roof etc etc...the ones i have seen in video would be far simpler and easy to use.
Can anyone help and maybe tell me what they are called, who make them and more importantly where i can buy them??

Please help..........

It used to be that we called hooking the front wheel over the back of a pickup the "Canadian bike rack". But apparently they've taken offence to that and have designed a much better method of holding bikes. I'm sorry that I can't tell you the name of the company, but I'm pretty sure that they're from Canada. Hope that helps a little bit.
