Atera Strada Evo 3 - Sliding Tow Bar Mount Bike Cycle Carrier 2 Keys. Unfortunately I never got a photo demonstrating the sliding and tilting aspect of this tow bar rack... I have included two photos copied from the internet to show the sliding functionality.The sliding rack range by Atera are PERFECT for vehicles with large boot doors tailgates! Especially Van's with square rear ends... Eg VW transporters with single rear doors, Caddys, Kangoos, berlingos.... Looking at reviews across the web, they seem to work very will with Barn Doors too, also found on VW Transporters or larger Van's such as Mercedes Sprinters or VW Crafters. The Atera Strada Evo is the smarter bigger brother to the Atera Strada DL.
I believe you can even get a kit to extend the rack to 4 bikes. Usual marks associated with fair use.No damage, see photo of ball hitch connector condition. Included are 4 green straps that I used to ad a bit more rigidity to the wheel chocks/braces when in transit.
They're designed for the job and have a piece of fabric that stops the buckle scratching the bike wheels/rims. The rack itself has one of those caravan style lighting connectors, however I have I stalled a 7 pin plug adapter - picture 9. There is an internal locking mechanism in the supporting bars (the three different length cross bars). This internal locking mechanism meant that when you locked the clasp with the strap around the bike Frame, it would lock the other end of the supporting bar - the end shown in picture 4.This internal mechanism was ferry troublesome and fiddly, causing many a frustrated moment when unloading the bikes. So, I have disassembled the support arms and removed part if the mechanism. This means that the ends (picture 4) Are not locked, when you lock the clasp with the strap around the bike frame. It sounds as like a big deal when you type it out!!!! However, in reality it really isn't. I would always have a loop/chain lack around the bikes at all time and never bothered with the bike rack locks.
The lock for the tow ball works perfectly. Collection only, south of York off the A19. Can send more photos if you'd like?
