The Stanfred Bike Carrier can transport up to three bikes easily. The bike carrier is zinc plated and has been given a powder coated rust resistant finish which means it will have a long life even when exposed to the elements. The bike carrier has been designed to be mounted on a tow ball. It has a quick release attachment which makes it quite easy to both install and remove. There is a permanently attached fluorescent cam buckle tie down located halfway down the main pole which helps to secure the bikes in place during transport.
