Postby Normski on Fri 16th Jun 7:57pm

Can any tell me where I could buy a vertical bike rack like this?

Looks good.

Something to consider is that the attachment to the vehicle would be the issue as the standard towball type mount doesn't lend itself well for a tall top heavy rack. The mounting system shown is ideal, but I'd imagine it would be unlikely you'd have that set up on your vehicle.

If you have no luck trying to buy one and want to get something similar made, you could try "V Fab", based in CHCH. A start up company, but the owner has a lifetime of creative engineering experience and has built a variety of well functioning bike carriers in the past. I'm sure he would be happy and able to help you out with whatever you need. M: 027 899 6011

I'd like to build one like that but with wheel capture instead of fork capture. The QT chairlift racking system is a good concept.

I've spent 10 years not yet building a spear type rack though.
