Pendle Fork Mounted roof rack

BikeRadar verdict

4 out of 5 stars

"Over-engineered excellence; a wind-cheating rack that will last and last"

Tuesday, July 5, 2011 11.00am By

The main spar of Pendle’s roof-mounted rack is ovalised and immensely strong. At the front sits the reassuringly chunky fork mount available as quick release or, for 15 and 20mm axles, with stainless steel bolts. At the rear is a shallow trough for any tyre size with a tough strap.With a bike weight limit of 17.5kg, it came as no surprise to find no flex at all.

Bike mounting is simple so long as the quick release is undone, and when in place there is no movement, especially with Pendle’s extra strap between frame and spar. You’ll just have to find space for the front wheel.
