Hi, This is my first post on this forum as I am returning to Cycling after a break of several years. My interest was sparked by a trip to Brugges where we hired bikes. I have since decided to purchase a Dutch Bike from Gazelle. The only issue I have is the weight of the bike as it is a lot heavier than most weighing in at 22kg. Therefore I am trying to work out a sensible transporting method. I have decided against a rear rack that is attached using only straps as I feel this too weak. I also think that a rack that will fit on a tow bar although the more sensible option is far too expensive for me at the moment as I have no towbar and would need to pay to get one fitted. I have decided to try and go down the roof rack route, I have already purchased bars for my car and fitted them it is now just a matter of finding a suitable cycle carrier for the roof. The best one I can find is a Thule 591 which looks very solid. However it is only suppose to cope with bikes that weigh up to 17kgs. Do you think they are just being over cautious here? Does anyone know of any other cycle carriers or can offer any advice it would be appreciated. Sorry for the rambling essay! And hello!
