Hi everyone, I’m sure that there are plenty of posts on this topic but I cant find how to search.
I’m after recommendations for a tow ball mounted bike rack. Platform type. I have tried the hang on type but the handle bars rub on the rear panel.
The tar bar I have was fitted but Watling and looks normal in terms of its distance from the back of the van.
Thanks
Pete

Hi
   Why not just loosen the handle bars and twist them round while travelling

Hi, I have an Atera tow ball bike rack and always turn the handle bar of the first bike to prevent any contact with the back of the van. Only a few seconds job but gives peace of mind.

We too have an Atera, but don’t turn handlebars. We do use a cover for the bikes most of the time. No marks on the back of the van with or without the covers.

Thanks everyone,
Sounds like twisting the bars is the answer. The Atera looks a nice rack and has good reviews. I can get the equivent Thule locally. 
Does anyone have experience of the Velo 925?
Cheers
