Anyone have any experience of the new Fiamma bike rack ?
The clips are very flimsy ?
Not sure we’ve got it on the right way ?

Just had one fitted to my Stanton (yesterday).

Got two 18Kg electric folding bikes on (no batteries). Seems ok.

I want to leave them on the carrier all the time (except when using them smile!) because I store my motorhome under cover. they are secure here and out of my way. I wonder if the constant load on the back wall will be an issue.

The clips that hold the frame up when empty do look like they are easy to lose.

Thanks !
That’s what we are thinking re clips . Our last rack seemed more “robust!”

I think I'll look at some way to secure them, or tether them with something.

Your motorhome seems to be a bit long in the tooth. It should qualify for classic status.smile!smile!smile!
