A simple and effective system, bsn

A simple and effective bike rack system for station wagons, vans and compact cars was invented by the young team FITS sports equipment (our former corporate name). It's easy, you just have to come out: It consists of two telescopically aluminum square tubes sliding into each other, which can be fixed by means of an adjusting screw. Two plasic parts and fork mounts with quick releases added and you have a perfect interior bike rack. The whole thing is simply clamped transversely behind the front seats and the bikes fixed with the fork to the fork mounts. In this way, depending on vehicle size two or more bicycles can be transported safe and space saving. In addition, the bikes are safe from thieves and it saves fuel. BikeInside is modular system, i.e. existing fork mounts can be used.
