Recently changed my car for a Skoda Octavia & need some roof bars & cycle carrier.
Considering Thule Wingbar & relevant foot mountings. Also need a bike carrier, a fork mount type possibly a Thule 561 Outride.
Would like this lot to be as quiet & fuel efficient as possible..
Any help & advise would be most welcome.
oh, the cars a 2010 hatchback if it makes any difference.
I have always used Thule Aero bars and Thule Proride carriers. Can't fault either one in anyway. Stable at speed and easy to get bikes on and off. Ok locks as well so bikes are (relatively) secure whilst you are in the services.
I have used mine on A6 estate, Bmw 3 series estate and now on a Passat estate. All work fine.
They are easy to store when off the bike as well. Unlike the Thule rear door mount I have which takes up the space of a car in the garage.
