Fab­bri Tor­bolino 3 Alu­minium bike rack £98.09

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

As the digit at the end of the name sug­gests, Ital­ian brand Fab­bri’s Tor­bolino 3 rack is de­signed to carry three bikes on the rear of your car. While we found this was pos­si­ble with hard­tails and other bikes with un­in­ter­rupted front tri­an­gles, we strug­gled to fit two more com­pli­cated full-sus­pen­sion frames on with­out them hang­ing off the car at awk­ward an­gles. The rack it­self is tool free and straight­for­ward to set up, and fit­ting it to your car is a has­sle-free process. It’s worth not­ing that, be­cause it only has a sin­gle pivot, chang­ing its shape to fit dif­fer­ent ve­hi­cles al­ters the an­gle of the arms that the bikes hang from. While the rack feels solid enough once in place, the rub­ber bumpers that help pro­tect your car don’t stay put very well. Luke www.fabbi-racks.co.uk
