T5 and T6 BIKE RACKS
Bike Racks are a great solution to free up space in the interior of your van. There are a variety of options to choose from, dependent on how many bikes you require to carry, and whether you have a tailgate or barn doors.
Please be aware all bike racks can only be fitted if the vehicle does not have a real spoiler fitted.
T5/T6 Barn door model – Fiamma
The barn door model vehicle (double opening rear doors) only has one option if you wish to have a bike rack mounted to the rear door. This is a Fiamma VW T5D/T6D carry-bike and can only be fitted on the passenger side rear door. This model will only carry two bikes. Supplied and fitted cost £350 including VAT
For tailgate model vehicles (single-opening, overhead door) there are two bike rack options:
Original VW T5 or T6:
This genuine VW bike rack comes as a 4 person bike rack as standard. It mounts to the top of the door and above the rear light clusters.
Fiamma T5 Tailgates:
There are two products from Fiamma that can be used on a T5 Tailgate. The first is their original VW T5 carry-bike. This comes as a 2 person bike rack with the option of purchasing additional parts to turn this into a 4 person bike rack. It is fitted to the top of the door and clamps to the very bottom.
This option can be supplied and fitted for £330 including VAT (2 person)
The T6 Tailgate Pro is similar in fit to the original VW rack in that it mounts to the top of the door and clamps above the rear light clusters. This bike rack comes as a 2 person bike rack, again with the option of buying additional parts to turn this into a 4 person bike rack.
Supplied and fitted cost £4345 including VAT (2 person)
Or choose the T6 Tailgate Pro in Deep Black!
Supplier and fitted cost £420 including VAT (2 person)
While you could carry your bikes inside the van, the best option is to buy a bike rack for the back of the van to free up all the interior space. There are a couple of options to choose from which will all be dependent on how many bike you require to carry, what type of rear doors you have and come down to budget.
