Hi all

Can anyone recommend any decent roof mounted cycle racks? I have seen an exodus twin pack in halfords for about 80 quid.

    Thule ProRide. Start at about 70. Each. But well worth it.

    +2 for the Thule ProRide.

    Got mine from ford parts online on ebay.

    No delivery charges if you can collect from one of their service centres, so cost about £62.

    I've got two of Atera GIRO AF racks for adult bikes:


    And two Atera GIRO Speed racks for the kids bikes (though it means that the front wheel has to travel in the car):


    Both are £60 each if bought in pairs and both are very sturdy when the bikes are in them. I've used them a fair bit and would certainly recommend them.

    I use the Mont Blanc Baracudas so that they can be used for both adult and kids bikes. They also have the advantage of holding the bike steady by the front wheel while you secure the arm. i have had to let the tyres down a little for my 2.35" mtb tyres but they still go in.
