Cycle racks for 156

Hi all,

Recent new owner of a '05 156 Veloce and a very happy man I am!

I'm wanting to get a cycle rack (for 2 bikes) and am finding it difficult to get info from the web.

Can anyone give me any advice on this (or even sell me something!)?

I bought a set of thule roof bars and a new pair of thule FreeRide 530 cycle bars on ebay for my 147. if you can find roof bars for your 156 then any cycle bars should fit. i read a few reviews for the halfords own brand bars and most of them said to avoid, as they were too flimsy at motorway speeds.

There are some really good ones out there that rig up and over the back, I have personally used this type successfully and later a tow bar option. Depends on your needs - distances covered, security if you plan to leave car unattended and simplicity of use - for either. DEfinitely go for a good name - Thule or similar typically.
The better ones I have experienced are on a tow bar....if you have one fitted? Might be worth the investment....amazing how useful it can be, especially the detachable type - saves scraping your shins in/out of the back!!!

Happy Hunting!

All the best...
