    Sure you want to lift a DH bike on top of a car.

    Big Mouth

    I have the Side Arm. Holds the bikes down no matter how hard I drive. Perfect for DH bikes.

    I used one last season and went to a T2 for this year. Believe me, after a days riding session last thing you want to do is lift a DH on the roof of your car. Mine is also for grabs.

    It's a pretty decent rack, though the trays could be a little wider. A 2.5 Nevegal barely fits. You probably could tweak them out a little if you wanted.

    Thanks here guys... I have a Saris CycleOn hitch rack for my Jeep but this is to go on the Civic for those summer trips with the Fam when I want to bring my DH rig and sneak away a little ride action.
    ..."oh yeah hun, Whistler is a great little Family get away idea!...We really should go visit your friend Christi down in Moab too."


    Also PM'd you guys about those Racks.

    Go with the Thule 594 - Sidearm

    Right company wrong rack. Go with the Thule 594 - Sidearm. Its the design they bought off of sports works racks and is the best roof rack design for dh/free ride bikes
