I’ve been getting into biking over summer 🚴♂️ and have obtained all the gear... but as they saying goes.. still missing the idea 😆.
Ive been looking at options of how I can mount a bike on the roof of my Megane so I can take the bike away easily without disassembling it all and then putting it in the back.
Had a couple of great rides along the coast this year in Kent and Gt Yarmouth so I’ve certainly got the bug for it.
So why am I telling you all this in my Clio 182 Thread?? Well along with looking At roof rack
options for my Meggy, I also started to have a tentative look for kit for my Clio as well.
Found a dedicated Thule Foot mount kit
on eBay for the Clio for 14.99 so had a punt on that, and then it all spiralled from there looking for the common Thule 754 Foot kit to go with it, bars bike mounts etc..
A bloke in Peterborough I saw was advertising the Thule 754 foot kit on eBay
so I made a cheeky offer of £35 which he accepted so I toddled round to pick it up. Whilst there he asks me if I’ve got bars, and bike mounts...?
Needless to say, a bit of negotiations and £150 later, I left with everything else I needed to mount 2 bikes to the roof of the Clio.
Today I finally got all the bits together and mounted it all on the roof of the Clio in the poxy rain.. 🌧
For anyone like me who’s not had any experience of Thule roof racks before, let me tell you their kit is excellent and really fits well to the car!!
The feet are specifically moulded to your car (so long as you get the right kit) and when clamped up with the supplied basic torque wrench
, it really does get a good hold of your car roof!
I got aero roof bars, which the catalogue says aren’t available for this car, but they fit a treat!
So the next time the sun ☀️ comes out... or at least it’s not raining like FOOOK I’ll get the old girl all packed up and go for a little ride out..!!
Thanks for reading 🚴♂️
