    The Westphalia BC60 was an excellent choice and fulfils its function very well, simple to use and in my opinion being tow bar fitted the best type of bike carrier. Two things to be aware of....it is quite heavy and secondly this model is superceded by an updated version the BC 70.
    Looks good and seems easy to use
    Excellent does what it says on the box
    Great product and much cheaper than the equivalent Thule bike rack. very well made, sturdy and secure but don't forget it weighs 20kgs! Easily fold to become more compact
    Great item great experience
    Does what it says on the tin.
    Having recently retired we purchased 2 pedal assisted electric bikes. These bikes are too heavy for me to lift easily onto my existing roof rack cycle carrier. As I already have a tow ball fitted I decided that the Westfalia BC60 which is specifically designed to hold 2 electric bikes up to a total of 60kg would solve the lifting problem. As my car is an estate car the ability to lower the bikes & rack to enable the tailgate to be opened was also a favourable factor. The rack folds up to make storage either at home or in the boot easy. The online video shows a woman carrying the BC60 & fitting it to a towbar, however purchasers should be aware that it weighs 20kg which my wife couldn't lift. It is however a very well engineered piece of kit which I can highly recommend.
    Excellent. I can't say much else, except excellent
    Very easy to set up and does what its supposed to with ease
    Ordered by telephone, delivered next day. Very good piece of kit, extremely robust and straightforward to fit.
    I forgot to mention free number plate when I placed the order but one phone call and the plate was delivered the following day with no additional shipping cost. Excellent service throughout the order , delivery and after sales service
    Excellent piece of kit. Not tried bikes on it yet (one electric) but with a payload of 60 kg I can't foresee any problems. Instructions for fitting number plate into holder could be clearer.
    You get what you pay for-this is an excellent piece of kit that works well for my 2 electric bikes. The 1st time of fitting takes a little while but once you've cracked it, it is really easy. Superb service from PF Jones throughout my contact from answering questions quickly to a really efficient order and despatch
    Very good carrier i read at http://fahrradtraeger-test.org/westfalia-bc-60-fahrradtr%C3%A4ger-ahk-test/ about
    Internet order, delivered to my door within 24hrs of placing the order. Very impressed with the service!!!
    Very good service and well packaged all my orders have arrived on time never any problems.
    I am extremely happy with the service. The quality of the communication from placing the order to being able to track the package with UPS was excellent. There is nothing more reassuring than being able to track your goods once you've parted with a lot of money. The goods were well packaged and arrived undamaged. I placed the order based on a demonstration at the Camping and Caravan show in Manchester 2014. So, once the goods arrived I fitted and tested the goods and everything was I expected. Thank you for the great service.
    Totally satisfied with the order procedure
    Friendly service and very speedy delivery

    Hi What is the pin connector on the Westfalia Portilo BC60 Folding Cycle Carrier. ta

    Asked by James Allen  | 14/04/2015, 15:55 | 1 answer(s)

    Can you confirm that the Westfalia detachable tow bar for the Evoque (323102) will be able to hold the Westfalia cycle carrier with 2 electric bikes. The 2 bikes total 46 kg. and with the 17.5 kg cycle carrier that makes 63.5 kg total. The data sheet state that the tow bar can take a vertical load of 100kg so it should be ok but a local fitter tells me that he has been told the the detachable tow bar can only take 60kg.
