One of my side bars' rear bolts snapped while on a dual carriageway the other day, leaving it clanging like mad down the road. was a right struggle to get the front bolt undone so I could remove the bar before getting on the motorway :roll:

decided I'm not going to run them anymore, so managed to remove the front bracket tonight, and ended up chopping the rear one down - should at least have more ground clearance now. Can't get enough leverage on the bolts of the remaining side bar, so looks like i might have to ask the garage nicely to pop it up in the air and get their tools on it - can't see it being a difficult job :oops:

Moving my bike and fits nicely in the back, even though mines just a SWB. Not sure how people are struggling to get a MTB in the back Image Image
