Help please!!!!!!

i need a bike rack for my Orange five Mountain bike to go onto my 2015 GTC, I've got £250 to spend

the problem is toying between a Thule roof rack pack (£££££££) or a rear boot cycle rack.

Has anyone suffered the same cycle rack Dilemma????????

my options are - saris bones solo or Thule wingbar and bike carrier

please help me!!!!!

Roof mounted option all the way. Much safer and easier to use IMO.
I've got the Thule 591 and use with my kona and gf's specialized with no issues at all.

Do you plan to use it abroad? I know some European countries have restrictions on which type of cycle rack is allowed although I can't remember the details.

Go Roof mounted, definitely more secure. I've done both, and now stick to roof racks (rhino rack) and bike carrier (Yakima - full bike mount, don't need to remove front wheel).

Has anyone tried towbar mounted racks? What do people think? I was thinking of going that route... if I ever get off my backside and do more cycling again!
