Bike Racks for all

Yes, there is already a thread talking about them in detail.

Have a look here, and you will see.

Also, Jackson Center carries them too.

Just to chip in a comment!

We are now at "Top of Georgia" AS park near Helen, and our next stop will be Asheville en route to our home near Toronto.

I just did a lot of checking on the Internet and made reservations at Bear Creek RV park, it seemed to get the best reviews, and the sites look a decent size. I can report back as to how it works out - will be there tomorrow!

Brian,


PS - we have stayed many times at the royal coachmen in Nokomis. A very nice park, but I imagine it is getting rather pricey, we haven't been in quite a few years.


Really like the area around Nokomis / Venice, nice and peaceful, yet everything you need close at hand, and great beaches!

We have one too; works great; not a lot of tweaking to get you bikes hooked up.

Quick question, does a ladies step through bike fit easily on a fiamma bike rack? Getting close to purchase, the question was asked and I think it is a good one?

Fiamma bike rack available

We have a like-new Fiamma bike rack we no longer need, since we bought folding bikes. If anyone is interested, give us a call (978-394-2475) or note at Jack.bickel@verizon.net.

Airstream Fiamma Bike Rack

We recently purchased the Fiamma Bike Rack from the Airstream Store. Delivered, but uninstalled it was just under $600. It is the only bike rack available that is custom design for an Airstream Trailer.
It took me 1/2 day to assemble it, before installing, two trips to hardware stores for stainless steel attachment screws which were not provided(????) and a special precision drill bit. Then another 1/2 half day for installation & set-up. The instructions were lacking in a few areas, so I found a YouTube video on-line that explained things better, but you still need to be very handy to figure it all out. We installed it on our 2014 28' Intl. Sign. It is very well made and you can open the rear cargo door and bumper well with it installed. They suggest that you take it off for long term storage; well that is too difficult, so we will wrap a tarp around the rack while in storage in AZ, otherwise I can see the Sun, baking the plastic pieces badly. My recommendation is to buy it, but unless you are very mechanically inclined, have an Airstream dealer install it.

Yes. My wife and I take our bikes and really like how solid the rack is. A guy followed us and watched our bikes to see if they were bouncing around. He pulled in behind me at the gas pump and told me what he had been doing. They were considering purchasing this rack and wanted to know how it was working for us. My only caution is that when you put two bikes on and strap them down the front forks on mine rub against the rear forks of my wife's bike. We do have some scratches that might bother some folks. I suppose you could but a piece of foam or something similar between them to take care of that.
