Re: Show us yer bike racks / roofs bars / etc
I have a complete Alfa rack with two Alfa cycle holders. The rack actually grips the side of the roof, which you then screw tight. It works well and the car looks the business with it all on. But a Thule system is probably better. The Alfa one is a pain to put on and off, takes about 30 minutes and the bike carriers seem quite fragile. The silver strips I believe dont come off. Today Im off to cornawall and for long journeys its great , but you get masses of wind noise, like a hurricaine above your head. I bought mine complete off ebay for £130. For quick journeys out I do just use a rear bike rack, but they do seem to scratch the back a little. I notice two Alfa dealers still have cycle carriers in stock as I had to replace one of the carriers last week.
Mangoletsi parts did a national search for me. Very helpful. I would post a picture but I dont know how yet.
