Great price! I've been hoping for a deal on these. Will check this out thanks
This is a great price. I had found a pair for £150 and thought that was worth it.
Bought. Thanks.
I wonder if it's possible to get the British Cycling membership extra 10% discount?
Great deal.
I pretty much paid this 2 weeks ago for a pair of 591s (which I only used for the first time on Monday) which were superseded by the 598s.

Looks like the National Trust family day pass (worth upto £50) is still available if you purchase before next Monday.

Make sure you ask for it in-store when you collect and opt for an email receipt.

I hope so! I’m going in later to pick mine up with a different membership code and discount vouchers! I’ll let you know
I'm expecting the pre-owned 598s sold on eBay to lose their premia to the 591s and converge towards £40-£50 per unit.

I have some reserved for collection tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
I happened to order 2 of these today when I saw this deal was on. I noticed the pair of 591s is about £10 cheaper although a bit of research suggests that the 598s are well worth a little extra, especially as one of the bikes I'll be using on it is carbon.
I'm hoping to be able to use the 10% AA member discount instore when I collect tomorrow, which would bring it down to £112 for the pair, which is the RRP for one of them!

totally forgot about the 10% discount (bought them this afternoon).

however, i just checked the terms, and it doesn't look like you can get the discount (see term 4):

please let me know if you receive discount, so i can repurchase and return the ones i got today :-)

thanks

I'm pretty hopeful the AA member discount will work - the terms of the voucher don't say anything about other promotions, unlike the British Cycling one:

It cannot be redeemed online. Voucher can be used multiple times. Voucher expires 30.11.2019,
It cannot be used in conjunction with Cycle2work or any other voucher, colleague discount or exchanged for cash. Excludes Tech Items - dashcams, sat navs, stereos and cycling tech. This voucher will only be valid when supported by proof of entitlement. (Customer can only redeem voucher with The AA Membership card.) Photocopies will not be accepted. Offer is valid until further notice. Halfords reserve the right to withdraw or change the offer at any time without notice.
I take it these will work with 2.4in tyres? You only need the adaptors for fat bikes and the like? Good price, cheers OP, have reserved a set.
Got these before the code! Dammit. Good value still at £133. They are very easy to fit and very secure. Once bike is up and frame in the main lock you just wind it into
position.

So just picked mine up, and got my 10% discount code applied saving another £12! That, with my 8%vouchers means got them for £103. Mega chuffed. So yea, sorry but as don’t have AA or cycling, can’t confirm...

I picked up the racks today. No problem with the 10% AA member discount at the till so it came to £112.13 - in effect £56 each (I nearly paid £50 each for used 591s on gumtree last week!). You do need to download the discount on the AA app and print it/take it to the store though. £3.74 tracked through Quidco too but I'm not holding my breath for that.

The free fitting was pointless and I gave up with them - I called the store, and after 4 calls without anyone picking the phone up when I eventually got through they said the guy who fits them wouldn't be in work for another couple of days, but I could call back when he was in and he could tell me if he was busy or not. Similarly hopeless experience instore when I collected them, with the staff having disappeared from the shopfloor (it was lunchtime) and a queue of people waiting at the tills with no-one serving, the second time this has happened to me there in my two visits recently.

Better doing it yourself anyway. You may want to consider reversing the fittings on one of the racks depending on how you mount them on your car, and this takes a bit of effort to do and is well worth spending time getting right. They're dead easy to fit anyway, so pretty hard to muck up.
Is it just this I need to buy, or do I need to buy some bars or something for the top of my car - I am so confused.
Has this expired code not working for me now 😩

you also need roof bars, I have had the thule freeride carriers for years which are great if anyone is looking for slightly cheaper ones, although the code doesnt seem to work any more
Picked up Thule Smartlock fittings, Thule Slidebar and 2 x Prorides for £180 used. Plenty of used options around for these, and they're pretty bomb proof so needn't worry about buying used. That said, brilliant bit of kit, if somewhat overpriced at RRP.

Never seen a set of slidebars in the flesh. Any good? Do they rattle when retracted?

Tbh, they're mostly wasted on my 3-series. The car is low down already, I'm 6'3 and weight train regularly, and I'm only currently fitting two bikes on the rack. So I don't really require the slide functionality as I can reach over my car fine with a 15kg bike.

I could really see the benefit for the slide function on a higher car, or if you're not particularly tall, or if you're fitting 3+ bikes to it. No doubt they're useful then. It's also pretty cool to see the bike rack loaded up and the bikes just sliding out to the side.

Some rattle when retracted. I wondered what the noise was at first, and checked the security of the bikes several times when I'd first fitted. Then realised it was just some "play" in the retracted sliding mechanism. Not an issue tbh, the wind noise (loaded up) is more annoying, and that's something you just gotta live with. Or just turn the music up.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I didn't think they lowered the bikes at all - just slid them to the side instead. Personally speaking, I have four bike carriers on the top of an XC60 and this takes a bit of dexterity to get the bikes on the middle carriers, standing on the rear door openings and having a good sense of balance. I'm not sure that being able to slide the racks out to the side would make it any easier to get bikes on the inside racks as you'd still have to lean over the outer bike carrier, and I'd lose my convenient step, without which I'd have no chance of reaching. The outer racks are easy to fill and can be done standing at the side of the car even though I'm not super tall.

Fortunately, my bikes are a bit lighter (think 7kg rather than 15kg!) so getting them to the middle racks isn't hard - it just takes a bit of practice!

You're not missing anything. Sliding the rails out just helps accessibility to the carriers, and saves leaning over a car to try and reach up. I don't find it difficult with long arms, but someone shorter might find it more difficult.

With four carriers and an XC60, I can image the middle carriers being difficult to get at. That's where I'd recommend a slidebar. That said, if you've already got your technique down using the door openings then it might not really benefit much.

They're definitely worth it for someone who struggles getting at middle carriers, but honestly not much use for only 2 bike carriers, as each should be easily accessible from the side of your vehicle.
So this is the bike rack, and do you also need to buy the bike carrier? I already have roof bars, but wasn’t sure if I have to purchase the carrier as well as the rack?
I bought 2x Proride 591 from Amazon in June for £85 otherwise I’d have gone for these instead.

This slides onto the roof bars. Bike rack and bike carrier is the same thing, just a different name.

This video explains how you fit them on your roof bars:

Have been on the lookout for two of these - thanks OP. I plan to get an extra 10% off with my British Cycling membership when collecting.
I was told BC discount not valid as it is 'travel' not cycling dept.

Ah well, I'll try nonetheless! Thanks for the heads up.
Just collected mine today. Used my BC voucher (downloaded online) & got the extra 10% saving. Super happy with a great deal on these!

I was away to a caravan yesterday with nearly no internet connection.
I was trying to get this deal with 30% off plus the buy one get one half price it was working out at £132. I couldn't get the order to complete so decided to leave it until home today.

I've come home to find I missed the deal and 2x "Thule ProRide 598 Roof Mounted Bike Rack" are now coming up as £207.98!! Nightmare missing this.
