This is a rack you attach to your roof bars. It takes one bike with wheels on and sits upright in a 'gutter' while an arm attaches to the down-tube. I already have one and was surprised at how sturdy it is, considering it's the cheapest of the cheap, now I've ordered another.

There are slightly cheaper options but the 'deluxe' comes with a locking knob on the arm to give you a fighting chance against the crims when you stop at a service station.

Rutland do free delivery over £20 so you can either pay delivery or add something to get it over the £20 mark like I did.

Thanks for the post - always good to get feedback from owners.

Will this fit bikes with oversize oval tube frames? (I have two similar styled Halford ones) Do you think you can get four of these on a normal car roof if you have them pointing in alternate direction?

Would like to take 4 bikes on holiday (2 adults, 2 childre) and I'm trying to work out how I can do it......

It is a little confusing isn't it. The one I received last time had key-locking knob and this is what differentiates the 'deluxe' from the other models.

Hi, it fits my big fat Marin down-tube (round) easily so I wouldn't be worried. Can you can get 4 on a roof? No idea, it would depend entirely on the bikes I think, the fore-aft position of the bike relative to the bars will be determined mostly by the arm/down-tube connection, which I expect is determined by down-tube the angle & height. This carrier is very much home-assembly so I'd say the options for getting it positioned just how you need to are pretty good.

I used to carry 3 quite easily on a Mondeo using this type of carrier, but unless you've got a really wide car, or a van I think you'll struggle to get 4 on.

For 4 bikes you're probably looking at a towbar mount. I can highly recommend a 4 Bike Rack WSBM4B from Pendle: pendle-bike .co .uk
(For some reason it won't save the direct url. Remove the spaces from this text: pendle-bike .co .uk/shopping/Wheel-Support-Ball-Mounting-4-Bike-Rack.php)

You can adjust the length & width to suit your specific bikes, and the bikes sit in the rack (rather than on the rack) making it very secure. Much cheaper than a Thule rack too.

Thanks very much Cotterpin - thats the kind of thing I'm looking for - don't really trust those ones which hang off the back .......have to get a tow bar fitted though. The other advantage with those is I can still get the roof box on..
Thanks for the help - repped :thumbsup:

Hi Gari189 - one further thing, if you get a detachable towbar, you can leave the bike mounting kit permanently fixed to the towball and just put it on and off when you want to use the rack. Also gives you the option of getting a spare towball if you do want to do much towing, to save having to keep swapping the fitting over.

Thanks cotterpin - just in case anyone else has the same problem I've found a couple of other options

There is a thule three bike rack for £109 (but I'd still have to put a bike on the roof)
http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_172555_langId_-1_categoryId_165477

There is also this Tradekar 4 bike one for £180
http://www.roofbox.co.uk/scripts/rbvehsel4.php?query=TR536&vptype=&emulate=accgen&qty=1

But the pendle looks the best option.....and you can get it cheaper from some of their stockists around £210
