    What cycle mounts did you go for? Looking at getting a couple on mine, just need to make sure they will fit 2.5 width wheels

    these are Thule 532's, years old and still work great, only thing I had to do was buy longer bolts to accommodate the stupidly oversized bottom tube on the SXT

    Nice. I'm now a roadie, unfortunately that means a Lycra whore...., but will post a pic of my steed and the car too.

    I want to get some roof bars for my car to pop a bike rack and/or roof box on, although I was quite pleased that my road bike will slot in the back of the car without dismantling... it is a bit of faff removing my daughters car seats though.

    And I wouldn't be as keen to do this with my MTB, road bikes don't seem to get dirty, fortunately!
    I've gotten in to ride cycling recently but have always been into MTB's, still have a hardtail and use to ride and race DH a bit when I was younger. I really want to get another full sus, maybe a nice Alpine 160. If only I had the money... and the time to go out and ride it!

    Nice bike :icon thumright:
    Mines just an ally Defy 1. Only had it since October, but I'm hankering after something a bit more special already. And by special, I mean carbon.

    definitely wouldn't choose to put my mtb in the car, getting it (and me) filthy is half the fun :)

    although I'm not a massive fan of roof mounted carriers for mtb's, heavy to get up there and the muck off the bike ends up on the roof... I'll be fitting a tow bar this weekend and using a hook mounted thule platform carrier in future
