Ace.
If your after the sort that goes onto the towbar then there is a mob over in WA called Multiquip in Wangara (they have a website). These are the traditional type of carrier where there are two poles which rise up from the towbar then spread apart in a "Y" formation before having two "prongs" going out at right angles where the bikes sit. They are reinforced at all the weak points for extra stability for 4 bikes & there is also an extension option available on the towbar to allow for the clearance on spare wheels. By direct & pay around $70 or up to $120 from a bike shop.

Hi Ace (SA),
Did you realise that a while ago we got hold of the Swagman (sold by Rhino Rack) bike racks and ran a feature on them? See the Bike Rack article found by clicking Accessories in Topic Search in the left margin of this site or by clicking the link I just gave you.

We're very happy with it and we do use it offroad. We have the XT range in a 3 bike rack, but the article will show you that a 4 bike rack is available too.ExplorOz

Hi Ace (SA)

I recently bought one of the Rhino Swagman XP range bike racks, and I am thrilled with it. I have never liked the mounting brackets on the cheaper racks. (They Knock your bike around) The Rhino has a very flexible mounting system. I bought the hitch style one and have made an adapter so that it can go on my camper trailer or the fourby. Highly recommend it.

cheers

Andrew
