    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job I wasn't sure about this'being priced low. I bought 1 originally, put it together easily enough. Did a test run around my estate. Ordered another. 2 bikes held solid for a 6 hour journey ( each way). Great price. Not fancy. Does the job

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased Took about 30min to assemble, then easy to fit/remove from bars. Holds bike firmly - I'm much more confident with this than the rear mount I had before. I use a simple folding plastic step to make it easier to reach the roof.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value For Money Always been concerned about using a roof mounted carrier, in the past favouring those hung on the boot. Turns out I was worried about nothing. Once fitted, and with bike secured this thing is solid. My other concern is how much cheaper this is than the alternatives. It doesn't have any bells and whistles, like locks for the bike, or locking to roof bars, nor does hit have quick release fittings, or a high end look. But looks aren't everything, and this is superb value for money. Some of the reviews claim it is awkward to put together for first use. My response to that, is that actually, it's pretty straightforward, and besides which, it only needs doing once! For the money, this is excellent, I will be back for at least 1 more, possible another 3!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and fits a range of bikes Have yet to fit this to car so review only focused on build and construction. Was easy to put together, used instructions as a guide rather than an absolute. Took about 45 mins for first one, but wasnt in a hurry and changed configuration twice. Where it joins in the middle I used one bolt pointing up and one down so that the washers end up over the oversized holes. I realized this will be important to enable fine adjustment to roof rack. Which will matter for me as I'll be using t-bolts. The u bolts won't fit Aero bars. The build quality seems very solid. Sitting it on the carpet I have been able to load on my daughters dual suspension bike with 20" wheels. And my fixed but fat frame MTV as well. So the clamps fit a good range of bikes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good for the price Very good value for the price. Instructions for first assembly not that easy but once you have done 1 it’s ok.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin Don’t go and pay for the expensive ones. If you want a roof carrier this is perfect. It’s simple but very strong. Just allow time for assembly. For the price ‘Brilliant ‘
