I've got a DH bike (20mm forks) and a Thule outrider 561 bike rack. Because I'm ace I managed to lose the 20mm axle thing to allow me to bolt said forks to said rack. Having had a superb call with both Evans and Halfords this morning its become apparent that a)both shops are staffed by idiots and b)getting another 20mm axle is a ball ache.
Does anyone on here carry their DH bike on the roof of their car? If so what rack do you use? Even if I get the axle converter bit I'm still not sure whether the rack will be man enough for the job - it flexes and wobbles about with just a road bike on it let alone 38lbs of talent compensator. For reference I've also got the other Thule with the long bar with the grabby bit on the end and thats not long enough to reach the downtube. So that won't work either.
Bike is currently sat in the office and I can't get it home. Any ideas much appreciated.
