Pendle Fork Mount Roof Rack£79.50

Simple design for all tyre widths

BikeRadar score4/5

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.

Robin began road cycling in 1988, and with mountain bikes in their infancy, mixed experimental off-road adventures with club time trials and road races. Cyclocross soon became a winter staple, and has remained his favourite form of competition. Robin has always loved the technical aspect of building and maintaining bikes, and several years working in a good bike shop only amplified that. Ten years as a Forensic Photographer followed, honing his eye for detail in pictures and words. He has shot at the biggest pro events since the '90s, and now he's here, drawing on all those experiences to figure out what makes a bike or component tick.
