  1. Hi guys, I have a question, and I am sure my fellow hubbers would conquered this issue before. I did not want to revive an old thread deadish thread, or highjack that thread, but I came from here: https://community.bikehub.co.za/topic/55832-thule-roofrack-on-bakkie/page-3. Basicly I own a 2016 Toyota Hilux Double cab fitted with an Armidillo Auto Roll Top Cover. I own a Scott aspect 910 aluminium bike, which I had from 2014. Currently I simply open the cover and load the bike on the back with the front wheel over the tailgate with a blanket or so between the bike and the tailgate. I am planning to buy a new carbon dual suspension bike and do not feel like this is a viable option anymore. The Armidillo cover does not come with rails to attach a roofrack to, and it will necessitate drilling into the cover and my bakkie, which I would like to avoid if at all possible. I must add that I would exploit having the loadbars by fitting a rooftop tent also, so this option from Skitch is quite attractive: It seems like it would be possible to mount the rooftop tent in between the bikes still: Have anyone here mounted roofracks over the Armidillo cover before, and if so, what would be the best route to go. The rooftop tent is an added bonus, and bike safety take precedent in any event. What are you guys' thoughts on the roofrack over the Armidillo, and the best way to go about it?
  2. Transporting your pride and joy can be a hassle, especially when it’s mounted to some sort of tow bar assembly. The rear view from within the car is obstructed, it’s a struggle to open the boot, the bicycle is at the mercy of dirt and debris thrown up by the rear tyres, not to mention the damage caused to the wheels and tyres by hot exhaust gasses. The solution to this dilemma is obvious – mount the bicycle on the roof. Front Runner has the perfect roof mounting solution for all the avid cyclists out there. It’s off-road rated and made from precision engineered steel and aluminium, which means it will get your bike there in one piece, even if the event you’re going to is located in the kind of place where tarmac is considered a luxury. The key component is called the Slimline II Roof Rack, which is available for a wide variety of crossovers, 4x4s and bakkies. There are various mounting options, ranging from a quick release system for most crossovers and 4x4s, to more permanent vehicle specific fitments. These racks are lightweight, robust and greatly enhance the everyday practicality of your vehicle. The second component is the fork bike clamp, which fits almost any size bicycle. If your bike is a little more exotic, there is an adapter bracket which can accommodate thru axles, for standard and booster hubs. Both components are made from black powder coated stainless steel. Thanks to the Slimline II’s T-slot slat system, multiple bicycles can be mounted anywhere along the roof rack, while the mounting bracket will ensure it stays exactly where it’s supposed to. The Slimline II Roof Rack is not just useful when it comes to the business of transporting bicycles. With over 50+ accessories for the roof rack, Front Runner caters for any adventure imaginable, including kayaking, camping and fishing.
