I've been trying to figure out what to do rack-wise for my jeep over the last few weeks. Here's what i came up with:CO-CA Todd said:I'm looking to get a rook rack for the car. Fork mount or frame mount (not having to take off front wheel)? What are the advantages of either?
Brings up two good points:laxguy86 said:I like the fork mount. Ive been told it improves gas mileage, and it does seem to be sturdier. Also i can put the bike on the roof while putting other things in teh car without clamping it down without it falling over. Just be careful not to forget to clamp it.
As for rear mount racks, they are going to get more road grim on them especially on long or wet trips. The roof rack just gets bugs stuck to the bike if you drive at night at higher speeds.
