Towbar for Bourton

Post by Pear Tree on Tue May 23, 2017 5:59 am

Hi
I am considering having a tow bar fitted my new Bourton having given up on the idea of a back wall mounted cycle rack. Advice on which to choose/ and suppliers would be very welcome - I'm in Huddersfield so a local fitter would be good. Thanks

Hi, I have a Bourton with a tow bar.  Not sure who fitted it as it was on the van when I purchased it.  One issue I have is that it's quite low to the ground due to overhang and its 'worse' with our bike rack on.  Have "bottomed out" a few times so far whilst going over humps etc.  Like you we were advised against fitting a rack to the rear wall of the van.
