Can anyone recommend or make a critique regarding these 2 new racks that uses cables. I'm thinking that as long as u install the racks properly and tie the bike down it's even more secure than a roof rack. I've got roof racks and thule big mouth and the petrom consumption is quite high - i wouldn't use them for a long trip. Besides the roof racks needs to be permanently installed so it can be quite vulnerable at places.
I could mount a hitch but it would be permanent to the car and the total cost adds up quite abit.
I've got an old more Rhode Gear (more than 12 years old) trunk rack and while one bar is a touch rusty at the base still performs admirably. WHen it's properly installed it's super secure and allows me to travel at 100km down the highway.
So i'm in the market for a super secure & durable trunk rack and came across these 2 brands.- I really like the use of cables and think they might be stronger overall than the standard vinyl straps, although i've not had any issues with my Rhode Gear rack and always inspect the stitchings of the vinyl - in case they break/snap. Which do u think would be the better rack.
