    if you have the vauxhall/ thule roof bars then use the thule cycle carriers, i am lead to believe they are the best

    I had a pair of Thule 591's from HERE on genuine Vauxhall aero bars.
    They gave complete worry free driving even at 70 on the motorway.
    I personally don't like the look of the Halfords ones. At the end of the day it's not just the damage which can be caused if they come off but you can be convicted for it or even kill someone.

    It's not worth taking the risk, buy the best, not the 2nd best.

    no offence intended but I've had much fun watching cars with bikes on the roof try and enter restricted height car parks etc.

    That looks like a really good price. It will be hard to beat I think.

    i bought 2 off Ebay, works very well and the bike feels secure just a few things I have noticed..

    They can't easily be removed from the roof bars, luckily I don't use the bars for anything else so I take the whole lot off.

    The other half's bike has rear suspension and so doesn't fit - gonna have to get one that's holds the bike upside down.

    The ones I bought are not lockable - Thule ones generally are but with a bike lock makes then damn near impossible to remove anyway.

    Anyway check out item number 330234879217 - I did a best offer off £12.50 which wasn't excepted - finally excepted £15 - but afterwards noticed they were excepting £14!!

    A pair from them is £109 with standard deliver which is free and only took 48 hours for me.
