Coolest Bike Carrier Ever!

While visiting Padre Island National Seashore and driving on the beach we encountered a French Canadian couple with this great addition to their travel set-up.  It's the KOMO Multi-Purpose Bike Carrier.  Not only does it protect your bikes from the salt, sand, road dirt, rain and theft, it provides additional storage for adventure equipment.


The bummer for us is that it is mounted on a double trailer hitch - one on each side of the vehicle's rear.  Who the heck has those? Both Ms. Subaru and our fifth-wheel already have single hitches and we can't see switching them out. But it's tempting.

  1. I got one of these off of Craigslist for a steal of a deal used. I was stumped by the two hitch attachment at first with my old school camper. But a quick visit to the komo website shows it is not nessasary. And to be honest the added hardware to do it that way adds way too much weight. But the entire unit be it two hitch points or one attaches to a standard tow hitch. I am happy with the unit and it is going to be a big help.

  2. Thanks for your update from a real-life user of this bike carrier. Glad to hear it really is as useful as it looks, once you figure out the mounting.
