I have been using the roof top carrier for a year. The trip this week one of the bolts broke. I was able to weld it in Amani mountains and it worked better
- I would weld the axle to the dropouts.
- I need to make another for the new style axles.
- for the rear I stopped using a v channel for the back tyre, it is just cinched down.
- It helps to also cinch down the front fork.
