The Westfalia three-bike rack is proving highly popular among South African cyclists, with Positive Sports Solutions having received a large number of enquiries about the product.
The SA cycling distribution company has had the option available since December and product and technical manager David Pieterse said there was huge interest from local consumers.
“The three-bike rack is the one most people are interested in as many riders club together nowadays to reduce the costs of getting to races,” he said.
The good news, he added, was that the company had plenty of stock to satisfy the demand and customers would be serviced with little delay.
“We can guarantee shipment to any destination in South Africa within 24 hours,” he said.
After initially offering the two-bike rack to the southern African market, Positive Sports Solutions made a decision to try to satisfy local demand by introducing the slightly bigger three-bike option.
“Besides the cost factor of getting to races, if you go somewhere with your family or friends, the three-bike option makes it ideal to travel together,” said Pieterse.
Importantly for those who want to transport equipment is that the three-bike rack is almost identical to its smaller cousin and operates in the same way as the two-bike rack.
“People will have no difficulty adapting to the three-bike product because there is little difference, besides, naturally, being slightly bigger,” said Pieterse.
“It complies with all the necessary legislation and has been tested in exactly the same way as the two-bike rack.
“All the racks have been TUV-tested and the three-bike rack is as stable as any other.”
He added that the locking system was the same for the bigger rack and that it could carry mountain bikes, road bikes and E-bikes.
“The three-bike racks are available at all cycling stores or you can purchase them through our website [www.positivesportssolutions.co.za] at the same price as in the retail shops.”
