    ^ does the bike sit at an angle at all, or is your roof fairly flat? I wanted to mount mine like this, but the roof slopes way too much, and the bike leans more than I would like it to.

    If I mount the fork mount around 8 inches in from the edge of the roof it keeps it straight but then you can't use your wipers. It seems pretty solid either way though

    That is very true and should be taken into consideration by any owner mounting it to the front windshield.

    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I had mine at 80mph, which roughly calculates to 130km/hr. I had no worries at that speed. If I was to drive that speed for an extended period of time, say 5 hours, I would definitely stop and double check the suction on the rack. After an hour and a half, I had no loss on any of the cups.

    No but I adapted my Thule ski rack to it. Works great. I just keep them in my car so they stay warm and they have worked good for me although I know they dont really say you can. But like I said I have had success with the cold and them staying on no issues knock on wood.

    It does sway, but I doubt

    1) you will be hauling ass like that and power sliding into position
    B) the mount would let go.

    Which one would you guys recommend for carrying two bikes on either a BMW 550 or a Toyota Sienna? Is there one that would work for both?

    Mini-Bomber is what i'd recommend.

    The footprint is 30"x9" so base that on where you want to mount it.

    +1 on Mini Bomber. I have one and can carry a total of three bikes on my MINI coop.

    I found a mistake in the commercial. When he mounts the road bike on the car, he drops the fork in, and if you look closely at the car, there is no rear mount. All of the sudden, it is there.

    My rack

    Posted this on the other Seasucker forum, but I'll re-post here. Thanks again ProEdge for getting this to me so fast! (the seasucker base mount that is... not the Thule rack attachment)

    Used my Mini Bomber mount to take the bikes to Canberra last week on top of my mates Stagea, was great sitting on 110+ kph most of the way and with very minimal wind noise

    This sucker seems tempting compared to other mounting systems that cost more $$$. Planning to give the Talon a try next summer.
