    Carbon fiber forks and fork-mounted roof carriers for cars

    Itís a quick question; is it ok to mount a bike with carbon forks on a fork-mounted car carrier? Some websites that sell the OEM fork-mounted bike carriers warn that they should NOT be used with carbon forks. However, I donít see any such warning on the Thule or Yakima website. Is this just a disclaimer or is it something to be genuinely concerned about?

    I have carbon forks on my bike and prefer to use a fork mounted carrier on the roof of my wagon.

    So... go with a brand that doesn't have the disclaimer I have 4 Yakima racks on mine. Never an issue
