Ben, Swansea

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The build is very study, much better (and strangely cheaper!!) than equivalent own brands' versions. Fits most roof bars.
Bad points:
The only bad point is that I have a large framed mountain bike as am 6'3" and it only just fits onto the rack meaning that it sometimes puts pressure on the teeth of the chain wheel, normally I make sure the chain is on the largest ring to protect it. Also as a result the tyres are never quite located where they are supposed to be.

rubs the frame of the bike where it touches the clamp.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The bike is rock solid when mounted on the carrier and feels very safe. Easy to put together out of the box and easy to put onto the car.
Bad points:
The lock fell out as I didn't lock it so partly my fault but you do get a spare
