I've seen a previous thread where it is suggested that the Fiamma rack could be modified to take 3 bikes. I have spoken to J K who would not offer any advice as it was not allowed! Has anybody actually done this? I only want to carry kids bikes which should not tip the weight over 35kg. If somebody has then I would appreciate knowing which extra bit you bought because the site is not too clear. Cheers.

Flamma do a 4 bike carrier, you can take off one of the bike holders to make it hold 3 if you dont want 4

In the long run it may be worth getting a towbar fitted and using a bike rack that works using that.

Your kids and their bikes are only going to get bigger aren't they!?!

You can pick a second hand one up fairly cheap:

Hi Tim - That tow bar is for the older German model and wont fit the Brazilian model (unless you try and chop it around and try and make it fit?) which I wouldnt suggest for safety reasons! Jason

I'm guessing that's because of the exhaust arrangement? Ok thanks Jason.
