    not really...
    don't think it's likely to reach the end of the auction really people are biting my hand off. Everyone wants it because everyone who's anyone in the biking community knows they'll own not just any van but bonj's van ;):evil:

    eh? :tongue: what, asin researching? I haven't really...

    :biggrin: no mystery i assure you. Changed the avatar 'cos every bugger and his dog decided to jump on various variations of my other one! :evil: ;) So it wasn't hard to hop on t' net and find another new species that had only just recently evolved.
    van's going just 'cos it's a bit of a dog for commuting really, a little car's a lot nippier and MUCH less thirsty on fuel being as it is only a 1.0 litre engine, and less noisy. Bikes are slightly safer in a van but i'm not going to lose too much sleep over them being on a towbar rack.
    If it can still carry bikes it's a no brainer really which is why i went for it..

    To be honest it will be slightly less convenient until i do move, as it means if i want to take the bike somewhere it's a case of taking the rack downstairs and into the carpark, putting it on the car, THEN coming BACK for the bike, as I used to do when I had the beemer. Although it's a temporary measure, and it's a pain in the arse anyway when i'm carrying lots of stuff aswell as a bike with the bloody annoying spring-shut fire regulation doors.

    I didn't use it to KEEP bikes in, only to transport them - although i would have kept them in there if went abroad with bikes say or to wales for a whole weekend, but I'll probably be able to find somewhere secure to chain them to if I do. Most people get on fine with rear towbar mounted racks, you see tons of 'em onthe back of cars in the carpark at dalby.
