This review is from: Thule 591 ProRide Twin Pack Bicycle Carrier Roof Mounted (Automotive)
These are superb. They transform the speed and ease with which you can move your bikes. Once you get the knack (which is generally the second time you put the bike on the roof), you can be driving away in seconds. Once you've got the bike carriers on, you just don't want to take them off.

We've now got four on the car, and the four different bikes fit no problem at all. The clamp has a huge range, so securely attaches anything from a tiny kid's balance bike with a thin tube up to bearing brackets on a chunky full suspension mountain bike. The range is vast and means that you can always ensure a secure fit.There's even a cable channel cut into the top and bottom of the clamp so that you can move cables off the frame (although I have to say to guarantee that there's no scratching, I still use a sponge or cloth).

The wheel grips also cater for a huge range of different wheel sizes - I've yet too find one too chunky to fit. With all this versatility, it's still a doddle to use - the parts move freely and give easy access for tightening things up securely. The simplicity and solid design means it carries on working well for years (even if left on top of the car for long periods).

These really have changed our approach to riding further away from home as it's such an easy job to put the bikes on the roof and drive away.

Other plus points include the fact we no longer worry about mess, and cleaning the bikes before we move them. The locks are also a decent deterrent to opportunists, and work well in all conditions (although I probably wouldn't leave the bikes on the roof overnight).

I would also say that compared to the price of the roof bars themselves, they are truly great value for such a practical design. I'd be lost without them now.
