Is there any issue with having deep section wheels on a tow bar mounted bike travelling at motorway speeds?

My latest "problem" is how to get the wheel straps around my rear disc... Smile

I'm thinking I'll need some velcro straps around the rear stay to keep it down, unless the strap can actually go through the valve hole without causing too much friction.

I have a Thule Raceway boot mount rack, and I can't put my TT bike on it without it trying to rip itself off in the wind Rolling Eyes

Thinking of changing to a roof mounted version

I used to let mine flap up and down in the wind as the speed of the car increased.

It helped make the numberplate more visible when moving as well.

That's a very valid point I hadnt considered in relation to my seasucker mount and the fact I now have a disc for the TT. Hmmmm

Behind the car with the wheels off. Assuming you'll have space for a couple of wheels inside?

Can't you just put another rear wheel on for transporting it and carry the disc in the car?

Yes, that is what I probably will have to do. Although I might investigate some extended velcro like you mentioned to see if I can use the mount to just secure the rear chain stays.

You'd just flagged something I wouldnt have thought of. I would be fairly sure without your comment, I would have had the rack on the car and bike on the rack Saturday morning, and then gone "ah" Doh
