Hi All,

After a bit of hunting I've managed to pick up a Fiamma cycle rack for the T4 for a sensible price - they are surprisingly expensive 2nd hand! I have just finished putting it together , however, can I ask if there any way of locking it in the upright position? I've done a bit of a google and can't see anything obvious other than just pushing the bike brace thing (sorry not sure of its proper name) down to keep it in place. It then seems to rattle around a bit so assuming there must be something I'm missing.

Cheers
Chris

There is a tie strap to that. Just purchase any cheaper alternatives, will work okay.

I had one like that on my T4 where you were supposed to hold it with the longest curved bike arm: stupid idea. Just use a small strap like this Fiamma one or one off a bike pedal.

Mine had a 2 x special clips on the upright part of the carrier for this purpose. Should be easy to order some.
