TRANSPORT YOUR BIKES IN STYLE WITH STORAGE CAPABILITY
INTERNATIONAL WIPO DESIGN COPYRIGHT IN PROGRESS
MTB / XC - EBIKES - ROAD / CX BIKES - KIDS BIKES - FAT BIKES
The SENDER GRANDSTAND is part of our NEW HIGH SPECIFICATION RANGE of Van Stands designed and manufactured in the UK to transport your bike(s) in style whilst offering a storage solution so you can organise and secure your riding equipment. The GRANDSTAND is based around 2 x 600 PODIUM UNITS to create a 1200 Unit.
Our Modular design means you can start with JUST the Drawer Unit and SECURE Bike Fork / Drop Out Mounts directly to the top of our Unit (Not Included). This may be the preferred method where space between the unit and roof of the van is very limited due to fixed saddles found on XC, CX or Road Bikes. NOTE! We do NOT need to drop the saddle on our Road / CX Bikes in our (lined) Transit Custom!
THE STANDS ARE DESIGNED TO BE ROLL IN ROLL OUT! You can MICRO ADJUST THE WIDTH to get the perfect TYRE fit! You can also slide the stands on the rails to get the perfect DISTANCE BETWEEN Bikes!
If you have adequate roof clearance you can easily secure and transport one, two, three, four or five bikes secured in the STAND(s). The Stands attach QUICKLY to the Drawer Unit with a Threaded Hand Wheel. An XC or Enduro bike with a QUICK RELEASE / DROPPER Seat can EASILY fit into the stands mounted on top of the unit in most vans :) Example: We ROLL IN - ROLL OUT using a GRANDSTAND with 4 Enduro bikes in a Long Wheel Base Transit Custom retaining one row of rear seats. We can also ROLL IN ROLL Out 5 Road / CX Bikes WITHOUT lowering the saddle. You may even manage 6 Road / CX Bikes in a row.
Strapping Bikes down to the Unit is EASY if you need extra security.
The GRANDSTAND can ALSO be orientated along ONE SIDE of your vehicle. In this orientation you have the benefits of both drawers for storage whilst TWO - XC / ENDURO wheels straddle over the top!
Our drawers have slow closures and a catch to prevent them from opening on the move especially when fully loaded. It has 2 Internal Dividers. One divider is designed to secure your spray cans. The other is wide enough to take ridings shoes leaving the central compartment big enough for a helmet, tyres or tools.
BUILT TO LAST IN 18 mm PHENOLIC PLYWOOD - WE DO NOT COMPROMISE AND USE 12 mm or LIGHTWEIGHT VAN PLY!WE USE SPECIAL TX25 STAINLESS SCREWS FOR A TOP END FINISH!
Each side of the frame has 2 locations for securing and strapping the Unit to your van (straps not provided) The Base of the Unit AND the Stands have 4 Strong / Heavy Duty tilting Feet. These can be positioned in a variety of locations on the base OR removed so the unit sits flush with the floor. These feet are also found on the removable rails for stabilising the Stand on rough terrain when it is removed on arrival at the car park.
A "bolt on" SINGLE or DOUBLE Wheel Carrier can be attached to the top of the Unit and overhangs the sides. IDEAL if you have to remove the front wheel and use Drop Out Mounts OR if you take a spare front / rear wheel on your adventures.

INSTALLATION AND SECURITY:
It is important that you consider the best set up for your bikes and van before purchasing. There are infinite variations of van and internal layouts. We cannot guarantee that our product is suitable for every van. BUT our MODULAR system provides you with plenty of methods and ways you to orientate / locate and secure your bikes to the main units and then to your van. You may wish to add brackets to screw the unit to the floor. Bikes do not need additional strapping once properly rolled into the stand (depending on how you drive ;) However you can easily strap bikes to the stand. For maximum safety and security you should fix / secure the unit at multiple points to your vehicle.
