Hi, I'm a lucky boy and my family are going to France on holiday this year (we live in England and are driving) near to Mont Ventoux. We went last year and awesome riding there. Anyway, I took the RSL on the roof carriers last year and whilst all was good, there is always that "low height" of hotel ceiling fear and also encountering semi-trailer fuel consumption as a result of turning my Mercedes into a small block of flats. So I am looking at the options of sticking something on the back. Saris Bones seem to be the best of the top tube carriers, but I am frightened of 1000 + miles with my beautiful bike bouncing around on its top tube......
So a Thule towball mounted system looks best, but the cost is astronomical, so obviously the Saris or the like would be better from a cost situation, but not at all costs if you know what I mean.
Basically I'm asking is my RSL going to be okay on a top tube mounted system or are the tubes too thin ???
