So, last night on my way home from a friend's house the clamp on my Thule Peloton mount failed, causing my Rockhopper to fall over on my roof. Luckily it became entangled in the custom little red wagon rooftop carrier I made, and did not fall onto the highway. The bike is fine, but the wagon and the bike mount were both knackered.
I went to find a new mount and realized the exorbitant price tag they carried, until I remembered a friend of mine had one of these in his rather extensive collection of VW odds and ends:
Yes, that is an unused VW Jetta Trek Edition rack and pair of mounts(everything was still wrapped in plastic when I got it)! I was super excited to get it, and I look forward to using it. I'm also starting to look for a set of VW Jetta Trek Edition seats to install in my Golf, but they might be harder to find.
Just thought I'd share!
