Morning all

I already have Thule roof bars so it makes sense to get a roof carrier.

It will be primarily for my road bike but will also need to sometimes chuck the mountain bike on.

It looks like they have three on offer (one is fork mounted).

Just wondered if anyone is already using one for their road bike and what they think safety wise. Just got visions of my bike bouncing down the road.

Thanks

    and a good morning to you
    i have both of the standard thule racks (the steel one and the alloy one) and i would reccomend the alloy one more because it is easyer to use at roof height.
    hope this helps with your decision making
