The car, towbar and bike-rack performed well, can't say the same for me on some of the hills we tackled, but we had a good day out feeling fit & knack'd when we got home.
A quick bath then fitted the bumper and sill protection foils.

Those bikes were a few quid! Did you go for a Suzuki carrier or aftermarket? It looks like it fits very well.

Bikes are great value for the money, Giant Anthem & Giant E-bike, we love the geometry of the frames - suits you madam!
Towbar was fitted by 'dealer' before we took ownership of car, it's a Witter.
Bike rack, used, from fleabay four months ago (£120), it's a Thule Euroway 921.

The towbar is made by Witter.
The fitting procedure is reasonably easy:
Remove the bumper, disconnect rear lower light.
Remove the crash bar and install the towbar assembly.

Coupling up the electrics might be a bit tricky, best way would be to use a genuine Suzuki wiring loom:

Notch out the bumper and refit.

Great looking setup, I am tempted with a tow bar but cutting the bumper is holding me back (unless Gargreen has a rear lower bumper section Rolling Eyes )

I have 4-5 earlier Giant MTB's and would certainly recommend them, if I was not into Off Road motorcycles a Giant E-Bike would be in my garage
