Re: Bike Carrier
Bfa, not sure if you have purchased your bike carrier yet, but I picked one up just before easter and it works great.
Its roof mounted and extremely easy to fit. Just take the racks off, remove the rubbers, cut the rubber in the desired area where you want the carrier to sit and then put it all back together.
The brand I got was THULE. The model is 'outride 561'. $200
Because genuine nissan racks are rola brand then you will require an adapter kit, $20, all this is is two new bolts that slide in with the rubbers, not at all visible.
I have no idea why Tony's 'proride' required drilling as this kit is what the sales assistant should have told you about.
I asked about the proride and the guy said no drilling at all and was amazed that you had to.
Anyway this is what it looks like, apologise for the dirty car.
The bike I have has disc brakes and this rack is perfect.
You dont buy a 4X4, you build it!
