    VW Owners

    Especially with an MKV GTI or Golf (Rabbit in the States).

    I'm wondering if any of you have the OEM rack and carry a Cannondale mtb. I've had my Rush in the rack, but the arm that comes up and grasps the downtube doesn't seem to fully grasp it around the whole tube like it does on my Bianchi. It does grasp it, just doesn't look secure, and wondered if any of you have any experience with this at all.

    I don't have a Golf, but have had that style of carrier in the past (I believe the VW rack is a Thule made for VW). Mine gave me trouble on bikes with OS downtubes plus I never really liked the way that the bikes were held. I ended up going back to a fork mount carrier, it feels much more secure IMO. You should be able to purchase any Thule compatible rack system to fit your load bars. I'm sure a little google searching will net you the results you're looking for.
