bak-rak - the load carrier for all reasons

base-rak options

The new generation of bak-rak  is completely modular and we will be progressively adding new modules - which is great - but very confusing for the potential user to work out what he/she needs. So below we have given some examples of the likely configurations how they work and what they cost. 

We have also given a code for the combination to make it easier to order.

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry two or three bikes which I want to mount on any tow-ball as cheaply as possible.

BAK-RAK configuration needed - The standard base unit will take three roof-type bike-racks directly. A light-bar will almost certainly be needed when the bikes are in position.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149], bike-racks x3[60], light bar brkts. [22], P&P.

COMBINATION - Ask for COMBO A2 Add to cart or A3 Add to cart for 2 or 3 bikes respectively.

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - A3= 215 inc VAT + 10 P&P / A2 = 195 inc VAT +  P&P

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry  four or five bikes which I want to mount on any tow-ball even when I change car.

BAK-RAK configuration needed - An Xtender frame will be needed as a 4 or 5 -bike adapter.  A light-bar will almost certainly be needed when the bikes are in position. Always use load straps when working with these weights. Make sure your vehicle tow-bar will carry over 80kg or 100kg for five [bikes rate about 15kg for an adult bike].

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149], bike-racks x4[80] or x5 [{75],   4-bike Xtender-rak [29.50], light bar brkts. [22], Load straps ]8] P&P.

COMBINATION - Ask for COMBO B4 for 4 bikes, Add to cart or B5 for five .Add to cart

TOTAL DISCOUNTED BAK-RAK PRICE - 270 or 290 inc VAT + 10 P&P

NB  Xtender-rak is telescopic - when used with a pair of support straps to stabilise the outer end of the rack from a spare wheel or door  they will allow a 4x4 with a very large spare wheel to still carry 4 bikes. It could also carry 5 small bikes with care [but watch the weights!]

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry three  or four bikes which I want to mount on any  tow-bar even if I change car, and I have a big 4x4 with a boot-mounted spare wheel.

BAK-RAK configuration needed - Although the standard base unit will take three bike-racks directly, the spare wheel knocks out position 1. So an Xtender frame will be needed as a 4-bike adapter. This is telescopic - going out to nearly a metre so it should be possible to fit the four bikes with a normal spare tyre with careful spacing of the bikes. A light-bar will almost certainly be needed when the bikes are in position. Use the load straps {6] if you are running with the bikes mounted well away from the car.

MULTI-RAK PARTS - base [149], bike-racks x3[60],  {or x4 @ 20} 4-bike Xtender [29.50], light bar brkt. [22], load straps [8]P&P.

COMBINATION - Ask for COMBO B3 or B4  [3 or 4 bikes].

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - B3 = 250 inc VAT, B4 = 270 +  P&P

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry three bikes which I want to mount on any tow-ball and lend to my mates. I already have roof mounted bike racks but want to change the position as my wife cannot lift them into position on the roof. I also have a lighting board from an old trailer that works fine.

MULTI-RAK configuration needed - The standard base unit  will take your three bike-racks directly. An old light-bar may not meet current requirements - but you can always replace this later. We do locking brackets but we will presume you take the option of tying the bar on and skipping the brackets. 

Alternatively we have a twin arm bike rack for 99 for a simple option.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149], P&P.

COMBINATION - Simply ask for Base-rak.

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - 149 inc VAT +  P&P

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry a load of luggage and some bikes but a roof-box is too high and slows the car down.

BAK-RAK configuration needed -  The best option is to use our bak-box .

If you mount it on Xtender bars you can carry 1 or 2 bikes as well. You will need a big car to carry this combination [Freelander upward]. USE THE LOAD STRAPS TOO.

We supply a plastic  bak-box for 79 or the superb range of aluminium boxes. Alternatively we have oure BIG-BOX 1150X590X 600mm for 240 which will take immense amounts of kit..  You will need a light bar as your lights will be obscured. And away you go - the box behind the car is easy to load and does not increase drag [or fuel consumption]. Make sure you put the bulky & light stuff in the box, the heavy stuff in the car.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149], Light bar brkts,[22}, Xtenders [29.50].  P&P.

COMBINATION - Ask for the combination you need. Ask for someone to contact you to discuss if using box and bike racks.

BAK-BOX PRICE - 79 or 240 inc VAT

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry a load of luggage. I want to quickly swap to carrying bikes, or I have a 4x4 with a boot-mount spare wheel.

BAK-RAK configuration needed - As in the last need, the box will fit behind the car. But if you fit the box to the Xtender frames it locks into position but can be unlocked and removed in seconds. With a 4x4 it allows the box to be moved away from the spare wheel. 

You need another Xtender for the bike racks [which we will presume you already have]. With these you can change from box to bike racks in around 20 seconds. You may need a light bar as well.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149],  2 off Xtender  @ 29.50,  P&P.

COMBINATION - Simply ask for BAK-rak and Xtenders.

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry simple luggage - a collapsed wheel-chair or push chair / pram or plastic garden chairs or an old/new television or fridge or golf-clubs or a bale of hay. 

BAK-RAK configuration needed - The oblong frame of BAK-rak base means that items such as these can be simply laid on the rack and tied down. If the lights or number plate are obscured then you will need a light board.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149],    P&P.

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - 149 inc VAT + P&P

-------------------------------

I NEED - to carry a Mobility Scooter on the rack.

RAK-RAK configuration needed - Best system is to mount a sheet of 12mm plywood and bolt it down to the base-rak. Cut into this slots for the wheels of the buggy so they sit into them once aligned. A simple luggage or ratchets strap will then hold it all in place. If the lights or number plate are obscured then you will need a light board.

BAK-RAK PARTS - base [149],    P&P.

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - 149 inc VAT + P&P

-------------------------------

I NEED - to mount an existing bike rack for a flanged tow-ball on my new swan-neck tow-ball car.

BAK-RAK configuration needed - The swan-neck converter will fit onto the swan-neck and give you a two hole mount. You may need a standard spacer to get it in the right configuration.

BAK-RAK PARTS - converter swan to flange. [36], P&P.

TOTAL BAK-RAK PRICE - 36 inc VAT +  P&P

You could even put a dog-kennel onto the rack - but make sure the dog can't escape and the opening faces away from the exhaust!!!
