Road bikes in a caddy

Post by timsellis » Wed May 27, 2020 5:12 pm

I do a lot of cycling so planning my first caddy, however I think the SWB caddy will be too small the LWB Maxi will be perfect however, for practicality, cost and looks the SWB is the way to go.

So with that in mind any suggestions or pics how you have fixed this , be it on the roof (This is how i transport my bikes on my car) , rear carriers like the transporters would that fit?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

You can get road/cross/enduro/DH/E-bikes in the back of a SWB caddy without any difficulty.

This is my cross/winter bike in the back, loads of room for up to 4 bikes

I have road bikes in the back of my Caddy on a regular basis, I've got a couple of Saris Traps mounted. It's a quick release mount so attaches to your fork and holds the bike solidly.Image

@C Chis

Great job with the clever mounts on the sides, anyway is that a normal or maxi?

I'm in a similar mindset... The maxi makes more sense but I do prefer the look of the SWB! I also have the added complication of needing occasional back seats, which makes a SWB more work to get right. Interested to see which way you go!

Long description short' 23" falcon cotswold frame with 700c wheel fits very snug with the front wheel touching the bulkhead, only had it in a couple of times so just let it prop itself up :D

It’s going back a bit but I modified a fiamma one from a T4 to fit mine,
