OK, so i was reading a thread on here about something (i forget) and all of a sudden i thought of a really good idea.
Swing away tire carriers are difficult to put the tire on, even if it's the stock tire. Fold down tire carriers are an inconvenience if you need easy access to the back often. So swing away/fold down tire carriers are the solution to this, but they take quite a bit of planning and design (and a fair bit of knowledge on fabricating). So i designed an (i think, correct me if it's not) original idea. So far on this forum, i have never heard of anyone making a tire carrier that can be all three different types: Swing down, swing away, and swing down/fold down. (Below are pictures of each different type, would have listed each individually but didn't know how).
With this design you can swing away the whole thing to access the back, and lock it at 90* and 180*, you can also swing it away, lock it in place, and then fold down to get the tire, or finally, if you're feeling strong (or lazy, depending on how you look at it) you can leave the carrier in place and just take the tire off the back.
