    Yakima Steelhead or Highroller?

    I'm debating between the Yakima Steelhead and the Highroller, can someone help me with this decision?

    Steelhead: more secure, less convenient (I have to remove my bike's front wheel)
    Highroller: more convenient, less secure (cable lock, requires lock housing to secure to cross bar)

    Can someone either tell me that removing the front wheel of my bike regularly will become super natural or tell me that the Highroller is actually more secure than it looks?

    Thanks!

    I have always prefered fork mounts. I feel the secure the bike better and the center of gravity is lower. they look sportier too.
