There are many bike carriers available for attaching bikes to your roof racks. At Shop1Auto we can provide any of the carriers available from Thule, Rhino, Whispbar, Yakima, Prorack or ROLA however we have looked at all the offerings and the following selection are the units that we stock based on their individual merits, be that features, price, ease of use and the like.

The first choice you need to make is whether to go for a fork mounted bike carrier or a front wheel fitted bike carrier. The front wheel on bike carriers are very convenient as you do not need to remove the bikes front wheel and then working out where to carry the wheel itself. Yet while the fork mount bike carrier is less convenient it does keep the bikes lower on the car, reducing drag at the front and exposure to cross winds at the side. Our general advice is for regular local trips go wheel-on and for long freeway runs go for wheel off. That doesn't mean to say you can not use a wheel-on bike carrier on the freeway.

These are our favourite carriers:

Whispbar WB200 Bike Carrier

Whispbar WB200 bike carrier with cycle

Who said bike carriers couldn't be sexy. The WB200 shows what happens when you leave designers freedom to explore. The result is a carrier that is as cool as it is simple. It is the perfect addition to a set of Whispbar crossbars.
