    So know one has had glass break or dents using this mounting system? Looking for my 14 Mustang.

    Get it.



    No dents. No broken glass. You can't even tell that I had used it.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    Yes, you just need the 15mm mount for it or an adapter.

    135 or 150 spaced for fatbikes yet? I'm probably going to get a car soon that can't take any regular roof racks.

    Is the Hornet strong enough to hold a fatbike? I need to be able to transport two with a BRZ. I don't have the car yet but want to have one really soon. A hitch can be installed but I'd rather not lose what little ground clearance the car has and from all the pics I've seen it appears to sit below the lowest point of the car which usually means scraping it on driveways.

    Yes it is. Each 4.5" cup is rated for 110 pounds and you have 2

    +1. The white cups have pumps that have now been revised. Seasucker has been great and replaced mine that had failed to no fault of user.

    Unfortunately they wont do the same for a rack that was purchased used or from an unauthorized dealer

    Has anyone used this as a 'skisucker'? I built up one which looks remarkably like https://www.seasucker.com/shop/ski-rack/ except I put 1" risers between the rack and the suckers so that the binding fits easily.
    My worry is what happens in the cold. The web site says

    SeaSuckerís vacuum mounts typically arenít affected by heat. Cold, however, does cause the rubber of the vacuum pad to stiffen. This means that the vacuum pad must be warm when attaching it, so if it gets cold during use and you detach it, youíll have to warm the vacuum pads before reattaching it.
    Which means... I have to leave them on the car and risk them getting stolen while skiing? But it should hold otherwise? And what does 'cold' mean to a Floridian? Below 40 degrees Fahrenheit? Below 0F?

    Look at my post #24. If you leave em on while skiing they should be fine (have worked for me) but the plastic does get harder and any loss of air results in it being a little stiff so you might not be able to vaccum them back up. If you take them off and put them in your car usually they stay warmer depending on how cold it is outside. What I do is if I plan to take em off I just take a little thermos with hot water to soften them. Works good and helps me attach them when I take them off. Most times I leave em on though and haven't had a problem yet although I've never been at below freezing Temps while snowboarding.

    We dont have anything to worry about in FL, its mostly for freezing weather.

    The internals so they dont crack as often as they did.

    Right, in Florida you don't go skiing... but what about places where one might want to ski? I guess I can find out since I plan on being someplace rather cold (say 10-20 deg F) next week, but probably have the backup of stuffing skis into my car.

    fyi the seasucker held on pretty well down to zero degrees farenheit; i installed it above freezing. didn't put any load on it that cold since i wasn't sure it would work but the rack itself stayed on.

    oh yeah this is a photo thread...

    materials: seasucker cup (i left the velcro attached). 1"x1"x1" plastic cubes i had TAP plastics make (maybe HDPE), then I drilled holes in the center, 1/4" 20tpi bolts from the hardware store.

    if someone else does this... use a bigger spacer. and use a drill press, though the HDPE is soft enough that the off-squareness I have might just act as sort of a lockwasher.

    $400 for a 2bike rack
    $25 each for 15mm fork mount
    $20 for a ladder strap upgrade.

    I will keep my Saris Bones. I like the idea but way to much coin for me.

    This rack is definitely not made for all... But its the best option for those of us with a few cars and that have no other option..

    Correct. I feel it should be half the price for the engineering and quality of materials that go in to this thing.

    It is a temporary solution and it shows as one has to constantly check the valves and take it on/off for security. I still use mine and it is a lifesaver when there's no other option. But I've had a couple bad experiences so I'm pretty uneasy when I use it.

    I know this is an OLD post, but I have a 24" Redline PL24 and a vintage freestyle bike I want to mount, and I don't want to remove the wheel...

    How do you like this solution? Did you have any issues with it?

    What did you use to make it work? Seersucker mounts with a Thule base?

    What parts?

    Anyone else use a solution like this?

    I used this setup for over 2 years without any problems. The only issues I ever had were with a couple Seasucker pumps. The seal system on the little plunger pumps failed. Other than that, the rack was great! The cups are rated to handle a lot of weight, so my additional 30 lb Thule base with ratching arm wasn't an issue. As far as parts list goes, I custom made all of the base attachments and had to modify the Thule base a bit.
    It was love at first sight.... she had alloy nipples after all!
