i need to but a pair of cycle carriers, i am split between the thule 530 at £75 a pair on ebay or the mont blanc barracuda at £90 a pair. They need to fit my auto max roof bars and fit a spc hardrock XL frame. Does anyone have any advice?

thanks Duncan

    I have the Mont Blanc Barracuda's and would recommend them to anyone. If you think you might ever need to carry a full sus bike or put tyres wider then 2.2 on your Hardrock then go for the Discovery rather than the Barracuda, it's the redesigned version and is more expensive but a lot more versatile as the front scoop is wider and the side support arm is longer as well as having an aluminium tray.
