Re: bike roof racks

shouldnt cause an issue clamping the gear cables won't do any harm just pull the brake hose to the side when you tighten the clamp


(might cause a scuff to the bikes paint with the cables rubbing on it tho if that bothers you google- (just riding along helicopter tape)

Re: bike roof racks

just dragging this up again.. I'm having to buy a roof mount for the main car, and might as well make it panda compatible. has anyone used anything other than the thule 591 (with the cheaper roof bars that don't use side rails)?? it does seem the perfect option, but not cheap. thanks for any advice.

Re: bike roof racks

Not tried it yet on the 100HP, but I have used a Saris Bones on a couple of other cars.







And it can fit 3 bikes (only ever done two on the mx5 cos of the weight on the boot)

Re: bike roof racks

Yesterday I fitted the fiat roof bars with a Thule 591 bike rack (which seems a quality piece of kit) to the 100hp. Seems a great set up, and not horrendously expensive.

Re: bike roof racks

Would you happen to know of a roof box that's compatible with these bars?

Re: bike roof racks

May as well add to this, perhaps should have read all the pages as my answer might be in there. This is my first post. Just signed up. Hi. Got two Panda's. Love'em! I know I'll get a third before I'm done.

I have Fiat horizontal roof bars for my 07 Panda 4x4 (as I want to mount a cycle rack direct, not to bars on top of longitudinal rails. Too much of a sandwich).

Anyways, old bars off. New all set to fit but I will either snap/bend the plastic or put a screwdriver through my hand unless someone can give me a tip on how to get the plastic covers off the bar feet to access the bolt holes etc. Please. Thank you. Can do pictures if you’re not sure the bits I'm referring to.

Re: bike roof racks

Leaving my original post there as a monument to “woods for the trees” vision. Saw the slot for a screwdriver and thought the covers levered off. No joy. Asked my son, who pointed me to the large allen key bolt in the back and said that might have something to do with it!

Don't do emoji's but I'll make an exception...
