    • Essentials Roof Mount Cycle Carrier is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63.
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value item that does the job for half the price A great value cycle carrier that does the job of items that cost 3 times more. Instructions could be clearer and spanner not very good. I had mine professionally fitted and the guy explained everything that I needed to do for future reference which was well worth every penny. Only thing that could have been better is a strap to hold carrier down when not carrying a bike.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money! Have used this a few times now and it is very secure. It's a little tricky to set up but once it is attached to the car it literally takes 30 secs to get the bike on and off. I was originally looking at cycle carriers that were 4 times the price of this and am so glad I got these ones in the end!

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value but read the roof bar sizing exactly Assembled reasonably well though the included nut spanner was very fiddly. Also very unclear in instructions that you need to keep one bolt that is not in the fixings pack but is holding the item together in the packaging, but discard the nut. Took me ages to figure out that I was not short a bolt. Fitting to roofbars couldn't happen though - my roof bars are *exactly* 60mm wide. This item says it fits "up to 60mm". There were no tolerances and I could not get the carrier to fit.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from All you need. Quite honestly, for the price you can't go wrong. Read all the reviews and was slightly dubious at first, almost plumping for the Thule gear, but I needed 3 and I had a budget to stick to, but in the end they have proved themselves worthy with their maiden trip all the way up to the Highlands on motorway and twisty farm tracks, they never budged. I can only say that the people who have had trouble with them or their bikes coming loose or whatever, haven't fitted them correctly. Take your time constructing them and they work fine. Our 2 adult bikes are old cheaper (£100 new) mountain bikes, so not lightweights, and our child's Islabike, which is like a feather by comparison were no problem for them. They are fastened to you rack with u bolts with 60mm width allowance that fit around our aero style bars and have a long thread, they also come with an insert to allow them to fit to square section roof bars. The biggest downside is the time consuming u bolt fitment if you wanted to take them off between uses. Or if you are like me and your roof rack is only for this application and they could be fitted tight, then remove the complete rack and carriers when not needed. Alternatively, cut some length off the u bolts. Also they are not a perfect fit to large bottom tube bikes. I strap the top tubes of the outer bikes together to give a bit more rigidity, but then again, I'm a bit belt and braces, I'd do the same with high end carriers.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and does the job. After looking at a number of very expensive options, I needed 4 sets - read other reviews about these and really glad I purchased these - 1st one took a little while to get set up, the other 3 10 minutes each. Fixed to small square bars, brackets would fit most square bars. Attached mine to trailer tent rack. Only criticism is the wheel straps - the strap fixing to the metal rack is weak and easily pops out, lost one before just strapping around the frame and wheel.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essentials bike carrier Don't bother paying for the higher priced carriers. Picked this up on offer for £15:00 and couldn't be happier.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product For The Money Does exactly the same as the much higher priced products, just not as shinny. Remember to tighten up the clasping spindle once you remove the bike, as I didn't and lost mine - nothing an 8ml nut couldn't sort though.
