How to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2016 Mini Clubman


There is so little information with a lot of un certainty. I own a 2016 mini clubman. I would like to have a 3 bike rack but I have no idea if I buy this product can I mount it or not. Do I need something else too. When I looked I could not see anything where and how I would attach it.


Expert Reply:

Bike rack # TH9043PRO mounts in a trailer hitch receiver. That means you need to have a trailer hitch, like the Curt # C11524, installed on your 2016 Mini Clubman. However, this trailer hitch is a Class I hitch and Class I trailer hitches are limited to 2 bikes maximum. The issue is not the weight but how far that weight is from the trailer hitch. Three or more bikes puts weight too far from the receiver and it can damage the hitch and vehicle.

You can carry 2 bikes using the above mentioned hitch, the 2-bike version of the Helium Pro, # TH9042PRO, and stabilization strap # 18050. Then to carry a third bike you could use SeaSucker Talon # 298-BT1004. Using the SeaSucker rack means you won't have to purchase a roof rack as well.
