I’d go for a Maxx Raxx towbar mount, the rear door has enough weight on it already.
I’ve been really pleased with mine; easy and secure to fit and very sturdy. The guys who work there also really helpful, give them a shout and they’ll be happy to help.

Email them, say you got info from the forum, reckon they will have something. When I bought mine the site also said out of stock, worth a try.

Here's what I use as a bike rack on my 110. It's a Thule 3 bike rack that fits on the tow bar. Works fine an the bike closest the spare wheel still fits with the pedal under the wheel. All good.

I used the Simmonites one on my 110 ‘s for many years, carried four bikes regularly over many miles but I did have it on a Mantec swing away carrier. The door wouldn’t take it on its own.

Re: Defender 90 Bike mount

I’ve got one for sale for £50 plus postage. I replaced it with a low mounted Thule rack when I got my e-bike ( getting old) as the suspension didn’t fit the rack. I liked it as it’s easy to fit and remove and I added some foam to the bike mounting brackets to prevent scratching. I’m in Lancashire if you’re interested.

Hi Chris - just to clarify (because I've been considering one) - can you use all 3 bike positions on the Thule? And have you got a NAS step and/or wheel carrier?
Cheers, Adam.

I now use a Thule carrier on a Dixon Bate hook mounted on a NAS step. The spare is a 235 mounted on a swing away carrier and the bike carrier is well clear of the wheel and lets me use all three positions.
