Bike Rack

4 posts in this topic

Hi all, just posting about this in case anyone was wondering...

I bought my beautiful Aygo Blue in Sept 09 with the plan that as storage inside wasn't great, I'd get a bike rack and possibly storage box like in the Aygo brochure. i got the Dealers (RRG Salford Quays) to fit the roof bars which i probably paid over the odds for but are very sturdy, but only just got round to buying the rack featured in the Aygo brochure (Barracuda Mont Blanc - got it off ebay for about £60) a couple of weeks ago; I've just tried it out for carrying my bike over Easter and have been very impressed; its really easy and quick to fit and incredibly sturdy. There's room enough on the bars for a second rack if needed, and the drive over fairly high motorways in pretty windy conditions was really sturdy - did feel the wind catching it slightly but not enough to make me swerve or anything.

Anyone thinking about getting one, go for it!

Looks good, I've always thought small cars with bike racks on the roof look cool for some reason :P Just looks quite sophisticated.

I agree - it kind of adds to the utilitarian look! I saw one with a big roof both recently, it just shouted 'who needs a big car?' lol

That said, we do have a bigger car for those occassions!
