Norman and his Mercedes Benz C200 with the SeaSucker Mini Bomber
Mountian bike riding is Norman's passion. Having purchased a Mercedes-Benz C200 and CLS500 he was looking for a bike rack that would work on both cars. He contacted us querying if the SeaSucker Mini Bomber 2-bike rack would carry two mountain bikes with extended handlebars.
The SeaSucker Mini Bomber has additional mounting holes allowing you to rotate the fork mount through 45 degrees. This is how extra space can be created to prevent the handlebars from making contact. Norman came up with another idea. As the Fork Mounts have an inbuilt lean Norman rotated one fork mount through 180 degrees. This created an 80 mm stagger ensuring both handlebars could not touch whilst also staying straight when mounted.
The end result is a bike rack that can carry two mountain bikes with extended handlebars. The SeaSucker Mini Bomber takes less than 2 minutes to install and seconds to remove. It saves money by not having to purchase another bike rack when changing cars.
Thanks Norman for sharing your photos and experience.
