cycle carrier on GTR...

well, its works but doesn't fit perfectly as the lower straps which would normally go under the car somewhere just clip on to bottom of boot lid - have to admit as I reached motorway speeds I have expected to see the 'dale and my boot lid separate from the rest of the car

For anyone who's interested, it doesn't rub or pull on the wing and its called a 'bones2' carrier made by Saris.

Good for you bazza

Just another example of the flexibility of the car and I cant believe that at UK speeds without hard cornering it would ever be a problem.
Just waiting for someone to have a good ski rack solution too.

Lol yeah sure - I don't think at around 300 grams of CO2 the GTR is specifically targeted at the green consumer (quote borrowed from Lambo marketing dpt!)

Ditto lol! Fair enough though... I would probably have a little confused laugh about this if I saw this on the street.

This is an old thread, but I was wondering if @bazza_g had any further feedback, good or bad about using Bones-2?

I cant comment on the Bones-2 nor can I comments on GTR fitment, as I have neither .

I do however have a 370z witha large Amuse spoiler and transport my bike around with a seasucker talon. Expensive but does the job great.

I'm sure this will divide opinion but it suits me very well.

I have the Searsucker Monkey Bars which allow me to attach my roof box and also my Thule cycle carrier (pictured). Attaches and detached in minutes.

I actually run the seasucker talon on my 370z to carry the bike around.

Needs must.

For the rack itself or when carrying a bike?

Technically there is no imposed restriction when carrying a bike on the rook, but with the increased drag you'll find your fuel consumption takes a kicking.

The seasucker racks have been tested on a NASCAR track upto 140mph. I wouldnt recommend going this fast mind.

The only concession with using them is that in colder weather you should keep them at room temp before attaching.

I was VERY dubious about SeaSuckers, I've seen the one with the manufacture doing 150 round a Nascar oval, so they can handle the speed, but what about the accelerating and braking?

Then I found this video of a guy testing them on an AMG - he's a knob, cameraman's a knob, he drives like a knob, but does give it some serious welly with a bike attached, and most importantly the bike is still attached at the end.



So I'll be getting SeaSucker Talon 1

Good to know. Currently considering a GTR and I'd need the ability to carry my bike. I've been using a Satis Bones but I think the Sea Suckers are the way to go.

Can you fit a set of road bike wheels in the boot?

One of these might do the trick for you --- Hogg -- but seems pricey for what it is.
