    I do love Thule. They make great products. I will argue all day long that square bars are stronger and don't even get me started on the round bar racks and items spinning on them. Can you ever tighten them enough? Anyway, I love Thule products as I started selling them when I managed a shop back in about 1986. So, I'm very familiar. If you need a rooftop rack, this is a great carrier as it'll work with just about any mountain bike tire with no removal of wheels. One warning...if you drive an SUV, this puts your bike pretty far in the air and it's really difficult to load up post ride. Also, as always with roof racks...watch out for garages and going under things. More bikes have been destroyed by pulling in garage doors than on trails.

    Pros
    Thule quality
    Secure
    Lots of accessories
    Versatile rack

    Cons
    Expensive
    On some vehicles, too tall

    Several of my friends have fork mount trays and I found it very annoying having to remove my front tire all the time.

    I decided to get these instead and I LOVE them. I can load or unload a bike in seconds, and they are very secure when loaded. (I have carried bikes with these from Colorado to Maine and back and to Utah and back several times)

    Stop removing your front wheel. Get these and you won't regret it!

    Pros
    Upright mount.
    No need to remove front wheel.
    Hold bike securely.
    Works with most bike sizes, from 20" wheels to 29" wheels.

    Cons
    Not as aerodynamic as fork mount trays.
