Take a look at our favourite roof-mounted bike racks on the market, from Thule, Pendle and Seasucker.

  1. The seasucker is a nice idea, but it is by far the least stable of the 3 and there's no lock or anything to stop someone unsealing the suctino pads from the roof and easily carrying off the bike. Not sure it's really a sensible option on that basis.

  2. They kinda missed a few details with the Thule 598 – The 598 has a different design jaw, making it a lot more "Thieving Scumbag" proof than it predecessor (591). Also It has a Clutch in the knob that will slip when sufficient pressure is applied to the bike, to prevent damage. The also have a accessory, sleeve type frame protector they recommend using with Carbon Frame bikes. Great Video and Great channel guys just thought these details worth mentioning.

  3. Stick it in the boot?? WTF?? The first Thule blows goats!! I have it on my popup camper and it destroys frames.. A friend of mine has the seersucker and it destroys his car.

    Thule side arm and thruride are the ones I prefer.

  4. No way I'll subject a fork to a load it's not designed for – those fork clampers are a recipe for an expensive trip.

  5. Really annoying that in all of your videos you often look at a different camera, not the one what is cut in. Maybe it would be more professional with just one camera, but always looking into the eyes of the audience.

  7. can I just buy the rack for my car, or I need to buy something else, HOW MANY THINGS TO BUY FOR A ROOF RACKS. a link to a rack seller would be nice TQ. pls fast reply

  8. The leverage from that long support bar taking the load has to be immense. Mounting it at the forks with the wheel off will have less rotational force on the cross bars.

  9. Enjoy trusting #3 not to dent your bodywork or even fracture it over time due to metal fatigue from flexing constantly.
