Bike carrier Design
I hate using the bike carrier that attaches to my tow bar( Hitch as the Americans call them).
I want to adapt my 6x4 ft trailer to be able to carry 4 bikes standing upright using crank mounts or similar attachments such as on the Pendle Bike trailer www.pendle-bike.co.uk
Can anyone point me in right direction for a design or advice ?

Might cost a bit, but if you have a trailer already, buy 4 upright roof rack type carriers and mount them either directly to your trailer. Alternatively, build a platform that fits your trailer and has the carriers mounted on it that is removable, so you can use the trailer for other purposes.

Basically, it's a frame that you set the bike into (on either side of the tires), and then you bungee cord them in. I think I'd only suggest it on a trailer with sides, but if you're looking for cheap, it may be the way to go.
