Omnistor Cycle Rack gutter not long enough for electric bike
I have an Omnistor cycle rack on the back of my Motorhome. It has the capacity to carry 4 bikes and there is no problem wth my mountain bike.
I recently purchased an electric bike for my wife. The frame is long and whilst I can tether one of the wheels in the gutter, the other wheel hangs off the edge, so tight vertical tethering with a strap cannot be achieved. As a result the bike moves during trips and is not as secure as I would wish.
If the gutter was another 2” longer I would not have this problem.
Does anyone know of a fix? I have googled to see if a longer channel or an extension is available to replace or add to one of the existing gutters but cannot find such a product.
Many thanks in advance for your comments.
