Flagstaff bumpers, do they hold bicycles

Can the bumper hold the 2"receiver and 3 bikes without twisting the bumper?

General consensus around here tends to be 'no'. That the bumpers, especially an ultralight one, can't have anything mounted to it.

This issue has been covered many times with different opinions, If you do a search on rear bumper you can find them.

Only if you fold them up and put them inside the bumper.

Absolutely not .

THIS IS NOT ONLY MY OPINION but has happened to me.

I had a flagstaff tt and the bikes reacted so violently on the rear bumper they broke right thru the rear fiberglass and knocked holes in it.

Long Islander, you better check your warranty and read a bunch of the discussions on this forum before you think about welding to the Flagstaff frame too. And like Turbs, I almost lost a Honda gen going down the interstate when the bumper broke. The frame is fragile too.
