Hi everyone

Looking to get a cycle carrier for 3 bikes for my Leaf (2018). It needs to be boot mounted rather than on the roof. My wife is not tall enough or strong enough to place the bikes on the roof (in my absence). Halfords said they don’t have any that fit the car.

Anyone have any experience of a boot mounted carrier.
Thanks in advance. Herbie

I've been using a Saris 'Bones' cycle rack on the 24kwh Leaf for a few years. It has always done the job without too much fuss.

There was a 3 bike version of this as I remember, the one I use is the 2 bike version.

It takes most of the weight on the rear bumper, I've tested it to the limit with my Kalkhoff Agattu E-bike as seen in the photo.

Maybe the 2018 Leaf has a similar bumper and hatch setup?

Good luck

I've used a Saris Bones 3 on my 40kwh Leaf and it has been OK. I do find it a bit nerve racking driving with bikes on the back but the are pretty secure.

If any 2018+ (40kwh) leaf owners have pics of a Bones 3 strapped to the back, it would be much appreciated. I'm struggling with side strap placement and slippage!
