I'll be traveling this summer (1000km each way, with one stop in between) and would like to take our bikes (4) along with us.
I have a Thule Apex installed in a 1.25" hitch that will be host to 2 mountain bikes (29er, 27.5), 1 woman's hybrid and 1 kid's mountain bike (20"). I have storage at destination.
How do I limit the impacts of the elements (rain, road debris, etc) on our bikes, most particularly the disc brakes and drive train, when traveling?
- Consider the encountered wind (ie. highway vs. storage) as reviews seem to indicate that certain products may not withstand various degrees of wind.
- Using RV in the keywords also tends to help
