This superb rack from Atera is relatively compact and light yet the reinforced frame makes it suitable for carrying heavier and electric bikes up to 30kg. The optional drive-up rail makes the loading particularly comfortable if you have heavy bikes. This page shows the 2 bike version; an adapter listed below can be added for carrying a 3rd bike. The steel means the carrier reinforces where it need to be making it suitable for heavier bikes up to 30kg each yet the carrier only weighs

Thanks for that guys. Might ask for some Derbyshire owners nearer the time. Its a great bit of kit which we have hammered Issues for me as follows Note: it does look like the design keeps being updated so may not apply to you.
Worst case is that the rack slides back when in transit and drags itself along the road. I have done this but have never damaged a bike. As long as the green button is all the way up, its fine. Its a bit harder to reset into the upright position that when new, take a few goes now.
Again I think its just wear and salt making the mechanism a bit sticky. If you look after it should last many many years. I should get a good few years more out of mine TM mrblobby Member In terms of getting it on the tow bar, I think the Altera is a lot easier, just because of the lighter weight. Never made a problem and I bought it quiet cheap.
I went for a buzzrack Quattro, which is very nice. I used it for a family run to Cornwall, from East Sussex, and it was perfect. Guy I got my van from had one and said it was fantastic and reading the reviews both from the company and from users on the website, the Atera seems to edge the Thule. My Atera was used just 3 times and during a few hundred kilometres voyage I have noticed broken brackets see photo. So in their opinion such an unrecognized cause of demage was the reason why I have to pay for repairs, but in my opinion this product is defective and I am afraid to use my Atera again.
I bought one of the most expensive tow bar carrier, counting on good quality and now taking into account all circumstances I am very disappointed.
Most of my friends who owns thule have never experienced such problems and arrogance from the maker. There was damage to the bodywork of an almost new car plus damage to my bike. Posted 4 years ago gmak Member Hello, i could not resist signing up to the forum just for this post. I did a lot of reasearch before buying my racks and this is my review. I found the roofbox comments to be too positive and lack any mountainbike use feedback.
I had a thule velocompact2 and now i use an atera strada DL3. The strada is by no means perfect, but it has some serious advantages in my book. So for sheer ease and foolproof use, any thule is a little better. Now moving onto the atera, the sliding system is far more useable than any pivot system, be it of atera or thule.
Locking it back is a little more tricky, but you get used to it. It requires a little more pressure on the left. The weight of the strada DL is the defining reason to buy also. It might wobble a tiny bit more, but it is light enough to use daily for just one bike. And the towbar locking mechanism is superior to that of thule.
I got the DL3 for two main reasons, wheight and size. It has the same footprint as my previous thule velocompact2, so it still fits the boot of the evoque and i can put an extra bike if i want.
You can actually put a 4th bike if you buy the extension. This allows the atera strada to be more narrow. And you will be surprised to know it fits my frame XL enduro bike just fine cm wheelbase. But the more compact size of the strada has the drawback that bikes are prone to rubbing against each other. But if you mostly use for 2 or 1, this rack a better buy than any 2 bike rack in my mind.
Note there is a design flaw that has to do with the attaching arms: If you put a modern mountainbike with a steep top tube in position 1, right next to the horizontal tubes, the short frame attaching arm will secure the bike awkwardly and very tight. This results to your pedal and front chainrings to rub against the horizontal tube of the stada. There is two ways to solve this: you can pad one of the two horizontal tubes with a piece of rubber where it rubs against or you can rearrange the short frame bar in order to clasp the saddle or to your frame beneath the stem.
This produces a 90 degree angle between the frame and horizontal tube and enough clearence to avoid rubbing against it. Posted 4 years ago.

Zo zijn er Atera Strada fietsendragers die geschikt zijn voor het vervoeren van 2, 3 en zelfs 4 fietsen op de trekhaak. Ook zijn er speciale types die geschikt zijn voor de zeer populaire elektrische fietsen of E-Bikes. Deze fietsendragers hebben een hogere draagvermogen dan normale fietsendragers. Deze fietsendrager is super snel te monteren en heeft een draagvermogen van wel 60kg en is uit te breiden om tot wel 4 fietsen te dragen. Atera biedt fietsendragers aan voor op de trekhaak en fietsendragers die op het dak gemonteerd kunnen worden. Dus wanneer u geen trekhaak heeft of extra fietsen mee wilt nemen is de Atera Giro een erg handige keuze. De Atera Giro wordt geleverd in 2 modellen en is zeer makkelijk te monteren op bijna alle dakdragersystemen.
