    That looks familiar but we're big kids.





    Any reason why you have one facing backwards?

    Hi, yeah when we had our 'big kid bikes' on top to go on holiday with the roof box next to them it was the best way of getting the bikes as close together as possible to be able to fit the roof box next to them; just haven't bothered to reassemble one of them again.

    Had the Mont Blanc holders for a few years now, pricey but the best for quickly adjusting to take all bikes; great when your off MTB with mates.

    Mine are the same as yours but supplied through Genuine Part Search (Vauxhall dealers), both bought under £50 (each) delivered.

    Cracking carrier, and I take it jlock, you've never put a bike on a carrier, there's no way they'll move and with a roof bar lock in the clamp, can be locked in place with no problems.

    I did actually, but it was one of the ones on the back of the car not the roof, and it jumped off the back of the car at ~ 50mph last year... Needless to say it was written off, so from now on my new bike stays inside the car
