Except the 532 is just as good, and cheaper (2/3 of the price). At £66 I might have bought a 598, at £76 I'd definitely go 532. The thread from last time https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/thule-598-proride-locking-upright-cycle-carrier-6599-with-free-delivery-hargrove-cycles-3031857#comment-35000157 By the way next time you see a bike on someone's roof rack wobbling as they drive along, bet you it's in a 598. I'm sure it's still secure, but you look out for it and you'll see what I mean.
search on youtube , kid walks into a carpark just ripsbike off of top of car and rides off. I would be buying a separate lock and attach the bike to the rack itself
It's not a no brainer not to not buy this, i.e. you must not have no brain if you do not buy when you've not already got one.
Agreed, I got a pair on a recent eBay 10% off day and drove across Islay and western Scotland with the bikes on the roof through the middle of Storm Callum, not a hint of the bikes moving
Great piece of kit, used it number of times - never failed
