    Giant Reign 2 with Thule 591 carrier???

    Hi, does anyone know if a Thule 591 roof mounted cycle carrier will work with a 2008 giant reign 2? Read a couple of posts saying other Giants don't fit properly and others saying they do...

    Anyone with any experience with this? If it's no good, any other suggestions?
    Thanks.

    i don't have the thule 591 but i would recommend the Yakima front loader - it'll instantly remove the frame issue - besides i think the 591 would be at most borderline safe with the Reign as the body would be quite fat at the crank area for the 591 jaws to have a secure grip - my 2 cents opinion. If i went with a roof rack for my 29er cube i'll go for the Yakima Front loader which holds the bike by the front tyre.

    Or a Thule sidearm. I am not a fan of any rack that makes contact with any part of your frame. Bonus on the wheel clamp ones...they fit any bike. Even Fat bikes.
