. In answer to your question, yes, I use it loads. I live in Essex and use it mainly for mountain bike racing / holiday use around the country, but I do also do alot of mountain biking around london too, South Downs, Hampshire, Chilterns etc (if you know where that is), so they get used heavily - Regularly have to polish them with wax, in the summer and winter due to flies and salt. They really are smart though I think - very in keeping with the car (as much as roof bars and cycle racks go I suppose!)
How come you have one but do not use it? Do you do any mountain biking? Where do you go snowboarding?
What I am really amazed about is how non Alfa owners bang on about how expensive they are to run/buy parts or accessories for and yet the roof bars cost be about £120 - a bit more expensive than after market ones and the cycle racks were just £29 each
Thats HALF the price of the aftermarket ones and they lock! Really pleased with them though.
The first picture was taken on the M6 services south of Nantwich, Cheshire (wow!), the second was at Ribblehead Viaduct, North Yorkshire, the third was the same as the second just on a different day, and the forth, well not a particulaly interesting picture, but it was at RoseDale Abbey in the North York Moors. I'll have to post some other photos tonight - much nicer than these even though the car still looks just as gorgous
