    Thule pro ride and roof bars.
    Have used a Halfrauds rear mount 3 bike one and that's ok, get the fixed length straps (an extra).

    Just remember that if you cover the back end, you need to have a light bar or you may be having a chat with the boys in blue.

    I have VX roof bars (£90) + Mont Blanc Scott cycle carrier (£36). A good combination for not very much money.

    Vauxhall roof bars, and a pair of Thule locable bike carriers, recently bought of Chris on here, look really neat too!

    What are the VX roof bars like to fit and remove, with regards to risk of scratching the fixing area?

    If your car roof has "fixpoints" (4 flip-up plastic flaps) the Vauxhall bars couldn't be easier to fit & remove, with no danger of paint damage if you're reasonably careful. I fitted mine unassisted without any problems, if you have a mate to steady the bars on the other side of the car, even better.

    The bars are a tool-less fit. You just drop the ends onto the fixpoint brackets on the car, then tighten lever "a" and push down the locking mechanism "b"...

    Lock the cover into place and you're done...

    Attachment 32574

    When fitted, there's no contact between the bars & the paintwork.
