Gear Question

I need a bike mount to attach to the top...

Posted on

I need a bike mount to attach to the top of my car for a 5,000 mile drive from Virginia to Alaska. Will this mount be stable enough for driving such a long distance? My car is not compatible for a trunk or spare tire mount.

The front forks are among the most stable of all and this is a great rack from a great company. Still, be sure to tighten it down and check periodically!

I agree, this will be a good mount. I would suggest a taking a couple test drives with you bike before you start your trip as you may want to use a bike bra or fairing to protect your bike and reduce wind noise.

Also consider the Thule Wheel On to mount your front tire to the rack. This will save space inside your car.
