    recomend a fork mounted roof rack for REIGN

    I have an 06/07 Reign2 I recently bought this roof carrier http://www.leisureshack.co.uk/mont-b...e-carrier.aspx
    I went to fit it all together today only to find my Reign doesn't fit ??!!??!!
    the wheels just about fit in the spaces but the arm clamp rest over the shock cage part of the frame and it's barely wide enough to grip each side and will not grip around the frame. This was not an expensive carrier BUT I looked at a fork mounted carrier on the same site and they only list a thule one at......74.95
    Anybody have a cheaper solution ??????????? (it has to be roof mounted though )

    A towball rack. Too many negatives about a roof rack...

    Why does it have to be roof mounted?

    A tow bar mount is not an option. I have a standard roof mounted cycle rack which I bought online only to find the Reign won't allow the down tube grip to fit over the shock cage area. I'm keeping it for my wife's bike but I just ordered one of these http://www.probikekit.com/display.php?code=NP04591 but i got mine off ebay for a few quid cheaper. it was a toss up between this and a carrier which griped the crank on one side of the bike http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product/100250.html but this just looked a bit fiddly to get on and off in a hurry.
    I will post when it arrives and I have fitted it.
