So far I've been putting my bike in the boot of the car but next weekend I've got to get three people and two bikes to a race... Last year I bought a rear-mounted bike rack from Halfords but it doesn't seem at all secure and there were no instructions so I can't even remember how to fit it. It also means you can't open the boot or see out the rear windscreeen.
I want to get a roof-mounted rack, but don't want to waste money on another rack that's going to fall apart or that my bike's going to fall off mid-journey. Any suggestions? Also anyone know where I can get one in London? Tried Halfords (only got own-brand), Decathlon and local cycle shops... I've got a VW Golf if that's relevant.
One last question - what's better for the bike - wheel-mounted or fork-mounted?
thanks for suggestions
