How can I protect all bicycles against theft?

VK recommends the purchase of a good plasticized steel cable in which you make 2 eyes. Draw this cable through all the cycle frames and secure the cable through the eyes using a quality cylinder lock.

Is the VK Bicycle Carrier easy to remove?

Yes, simply release the self-locking nuts. If you regularly mount and remove the VK Bicycle Carrier we recommend you use wing nuts.

We only use E-bikes or racing bicycles. Which carrier do you recommend?

In this case we recommend the carrier for 5  or for 4 bicycles.

We want to carry all kinds of bicycles?

In this case VK recommends the carrier for 5 bicycles.

Why are bicycles protected against damage on this carrier?

All bicycles stand independently of one another. And each bicycle is secured by its tyres at the bottom, top, front and rear (this is dependent on the geometry of the bicycle)

Will the bicycles we purchase in 15 years time still fit on the VK Bicycle Carrier?

Yes, they will fit as long as there are two round wheels under them

Certificate of Conformity (CoC) VK Bicycle Tralers.

The VK Bicycle Trailers have an European type approval. Certificate of conformity (CoC)

The COC document is a producer’s declaration that the vehicle complies with the given approved type. This document contains information about the vehicle and its producer’s identification, type approval number, technical specifications and other data. The content of a COC is defined by EU regulation (Amendment IX, Regulation 92/53).

The purpose of this document is to ensure the free movement of goods within the European Union, specifically for those goods that are subject to homologation and registration.

EU countries cannot refuse to register vehicles if they are accompanied by a valid CoC that proves their compliance with EU law. Vehicles with an EU type approval can be marketed anywhere in the European Community. Therefore, a vehicle only needs to receive the type approval certification in one EU country in order to be accepted in all of the other member countries.

The COC document must be present when the trailer is in use.
