Tow ball mounted bike racks.

Need to upgrade from the two bike Thule carrier that has served for many years, to accommodate the kids growing bikes.

From what I've seen over on Disco3.co.uk there are two makes that are widely praised, the Mottez and Atera Strada seem to be the way to go.

Anyone experience of either on here?

I'm interested as one is 200 and the other over 400.

edit :- this is to go on a removable towbar on the D3

I use the Thule, not sure which one but it also drops down so you can put the dog in the boot, had it 2 years and can't fault it - though I'd like parking sensors on it!

I have the Maxxraxx rack very nice bit of kit, takes 5 bikes
I have not used it in years as the kids have grown up too fast and not interested any more, make me a good offer and it can be yours, recon its only been used less than half a dozens times.
This is the one I have, but mine bolts on to the swan neck removable tow bar so you should be able to tow at the same time, but never tried it!
