Did he do it? Nope. Game over.

Oh, and BTW, I wouldn't call moose's video effortless at all. Mounting my mountain bike on my hitch rack takes no more effort then lifting the bike a couple of feet off the ground and placing it on the rack. THAT is much more effortless than these silly roof racks, which was the point from the very beginning. Like I said, game over.
Can you post a video of you putting your bike on a hitch rack?

Please?

Re: Pics of Overland with roof bike rack

one of the big bonus of a bike on the roof is that if you get rear ended your bike is till in one piece. and for some of those full carbon or downhill mnt bikes thats a few grand atleast. On a negative parking garages can be a pain aka not possible. I person do both. I have 2 trays on the roof plus 2 kayak racks (in the winter the kayak racks get traded for a ski box/ski rack) and when I bike a ton I throw on my hitch rack bc its easier. One major bonus of the hitch rack is that when parallel parking your back end is protected personal experience from others hitting my WJ). But you need bigger spaces to park with the hitch rack.

I would NEVER put my expensive road bike on a hitch rack...
1- the side mount and vibration it gets back there could crack the carbon frame
2- bike gets SO dirty in the back(same goes for skis, calcium on our roads)

So I just bought a 2011 GC 2 days ago.. I'm looking for crossbars...
You guys suggest the MOPAR ?
