    How to car carry stromer st1

    I recently picked up a stromer st1, love the bike, it's so much fun to ride. Anyway, I would like to take my bike with me on rode trips so I was looking for a carrier to transport my bike. I have 1 1/4" hitch and I just went to the local bike shop and the platform hitch carrier they had said a max of 45lbs per bike. This bike is over that.

    My question is do any of you transport your bikes via car carriers, and if so, which one and what is the approx. weight of your bikes?

    I have a Stealth H3 bike carrier and it carries my E-Assist bike and electric boat motor easy, I do take off my battery from the bike to get it as light as possible... The bike without the battery weighs about 55Lbs and the electric boat motor about 20LBs...
    He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts...for support rather than illumination. I do like my beer, so sometimes I do end up leaning on the lamp-post...

    I could only find this, probably a private sale, but there's a pic... http://nanaimo.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...AdIdZ495196218

    I carry 2 original Stromers on Saris model http://www.saris.com/en/bike-racks/v...&category_id=8 , made for 60 lbs per bike. On long trips I take off batteries , seats, lights.etc. On short trips not. I have a poor back and wish I bought the Thule model w/ramp. The Thule cost much more and would be harder to switch between vehicles which is hard enough w/the Saris model for me, either should work for you
