Question Roof bars, boxes, cycle carriers roof and rear!

Dear all,

did a search but not found owt. Apologies if I've missed an obvious thread.

Has anybody found a successful combo for the R35 of:

1. a rear bike carrier + roof bars and roof box?
2. Roof bars and bike carrier?

If so, I'd love to hear your experience in using these accessories...

... if it's even possible with an R-35!

Cheers,

Dom.

What got me thinking was seeing these rear bike carriers for cars with spoilers:

Rear 2 Bike Carrier for Cars With Spoilers
Rear 3 Bike Carrier for Cars with Spoilers

Thinking of finding a stockist for a trial fit!

and roof box on a rather nice Swedish 2011 GT-R:

mr olssons car looks like its a thule system on it - but they dont list one for the gtr on their site.

maybe he adapted it himself to fit?

Thanks for the spot! Never would be able to guess myself.... I wonder if Olsson's on here... might try an email... they may well have fitted bike carriers too being sporty outdoor types!

an email might be worth a shout.

id be interested in a rack of some sort to carry the bike, but the rear bike carriers tend to mark paintwork (from what ive read)

Best bet is a roof mount.

Someone did post a picture of their bike rack on here some time ago, looked very similar to the ones you linked, cant find the thread though.

cheers for that mate.

not so sure id like it on the boot though - would much rather use roof bars as that front wheel looks like it would bounce off the spoiler.

Antone had any luck with the roof bars or any clues as to what feet can be adapted?
