Any recommendations (or products to avoid)? Just need a simple solution for 2 bikes.

I'm expecting that getting two bikes on the roof and lashed down is not going to be easy.... lol!

Thanks!

I've just bought a 2nd hand set of Atera wing bars and (once I had them on the right way round!! :ROFLMAO: 🤦‍♂️) are whisper silent. They have the T Track system and so adding bike racks etc is easy. Wife has Thule feet, rack and bike rack and it's good stuff. I have a Thule four bike towbar mounted bike rack just cause I didn't fancy the stuff on the roof all the time. Cost new are £450 + but you get used ones coming up all the time on FB and Gumtree etc. Shout if you want the names of the FB groups and I can ping them over. (y)

Incidentally, bought a 2nd hand Atera box separately from the bars over the weekend and got the whole shooting match for £150, bargain!

Do you have a tow hitch fitted on your Treg? If so why not go with one like in the link below. I'm planning on getting one for mine so I can haul my mountain bike around. Had one for my previous vehicle and loved it.

Thanks for the responses chaps.

Don't have a tow bar on my Treg so gotta be a roof bar solution. Halfords looks cheap, but usable...

Will have a look thru your suggestions and report back.

:)

I've got a Thule bike rack here that I found in the garage yesterday if you're interested? Would need feet to go into bars but I can get a pic if you're interested. (y)
