Re: Megane III coupe roof rack

Thanks for the welcome and quick response!

I'd agree, I'd sway toward the Thule package...even with the price tag. Easier to remove and good security.

Well spotted with the 50kg limit!

Lately I've had to carry the bike in to boot with the seats down (even two bikes and bags) with no issue on space etc. However, life would be easier with the potential for panel scratching and a mucky boot. Plus I can carry more than one passenger.

I see your point with x winds and inertia with the meg fitting. As I'd be soley carrying a mountain bike the weight would not likely be an issue (max weight would be less than half the limit) but the x wind might be. Maybe a OutRide 561 carrier would be a better option than the ProRide 591 - lower centre of gravity, less 'sale' action!

I am really suprised that there are such few people using racks on the meg 3!

St Moritz...more like Glenshee - sleet and a 60 mph gale with ebays finest second hand skis!
