Need advice on Bike Rack
#1
Hi,

Planning to buy a bike rack for the first time.

My car is a Subaru XV Crosstrek. Can you tell me the pros and cons of hitch and roof mount?

I saw this https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/sku/soa567b041.html , a thule brand?

What do you think guys, is there anyone here already tried this kind?

Thank in advance.

There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
