confused Bike Rack - model and price - anyone recommend one!

Well my wife and I bought some new bikes (not motor bikes) on the weeekend, and now need to look at getting a bike rack for back of the EA, was wondering if anyone can suggest any, or can suggest any to avoid, I wish it to be easily removed I do not want to have to remove and install the tow ball (that does not count as easy), also wether removed or possibly still attahched the tow bar is to still be usable, anyone able to help me.

Re: Bike Rack - model and price - anyone recommend one!

Im unsure about which one to get but I will give you a hint its now illegal to drive around with the bike rack on without a bike attached. A mate got done after he dropped his bike in for a service left the rack on the back and got pulled over and $45 dollars later
Wont be doing that again.

I went for the roof type racks..........much better on the bike, and can be locked in....for security.

Can take the racks off in around 10 minutes too....

Re: Bike Rack - model and price - anyone recommend one!

they have these strap on ones at super cheap auto for around $120 and they dont even use up the tow bar so you can tow a trailer and carry bikes at the same time
lol
