Make sure the nose weight of your tow bar is enough to support the combined weight of our bikes and the rack.
These racks can't be used whilst towing a trailer or caravan.
4 Bike Arms: The maximum weight which the arms can carry is 60kg. This can be distributed between each of the bikes. For example, 2 x 30kg bikes can be carried, or 1 x 30kg and 2 x 15kg bikes can be carried together, and so on. They can carry up to a maximum of 3 (or 4) bikes although 2 (or 3) bikes may be the maximum for bikes of a heavier weight.
Retractable Tow Bars: If using with a retractable swan neck tow bar, you may not be able to retract and stow the tow ball with the 'On the Ball' mounting block fitted.
Note on use with motorhomes – We do not recommend using ‘On the Ball’ mounting racks with motorhomes. We recommend checking with the manufacturer of the tow bar as to the suitability for use with a ‘Behind the Ball’ bike rack.

We offer two different types of mounting block so our racks can be used with any type of towbar. The appropriate mounting block for you depends on the type of tow bar you have and whether you wish to tow whilst having a rack in place. Order your rack with one of these mounts.
Will fit: Swan neck, detachable and Mounting standard 2 bolt flange tow bars.
A universal mount that fits around the tow ball and consists of two parts which are bolted securely together – the first part contains the sockets which the bike rack arms fit into and the second part is a back plate so the two components sandwich around the tow ball. Both parts are moulded inside to the shape of a tow ball to give a perfectly sturdy, secure fit. Due to the way this fits around the ball you will be unable to tow when the mounting is in place.
Please note Ball Mounting option is not available in Higher Racks.
Will fit: Standard 2 bolt flange tow bars only.
A standard mount that fits securely between the tow ball and towing bracket of standard 2 bolt flange tow bars. Ideal for people wanting to tow while carrying their bikes. Please read individual rack descriptions, as not all racks are suitable for towing. When towing with a Pendle Bike Rack we advise that a maximum of two bikes are carried and that individuals check their towing set-up and turning circles with the rack and bikes fitted, before setting off on their journey.
