Tow bar fitting mini clubman one d 2017

Post by Garethohanlon » 03 Mar 2018, 17:37

Just bought a 2017 clubman one D. I am trying to see which is the best option for my bikes. I’ve got no rails but I have still got a decathlon tow bar bike rack. Has anyone fitted a towbar? If so is it straight forward to fit

Have a look on Witter's website - they're the gold standard for tow bars etc.......

It's usually the electrics that are more of a pain to do.

For a bike rack you could get away with one of the cheaper options really.

Might be worth having a look around for a local fitter

Tow bar easy to fit but easier on a hoist if you can. Electrics should come as a kit with new relays and so on. Just make sure you solder your joints and heat shrink on wires. Trailparts in Watford a good company for after market kits she
