Brett’s Renault Megane RS

Brett, an accomplished cyclist and participates in various cycling competitions including road racing, criterium and time trials around Melbourne, country Victoria and interstate. Brett’s preferred vehicle is the agile Renault Megane RS . Along with his dad’s immaculate HSV Senator the father and son team needed a bike rack solution to accommodate two bikes that would work on both vehicles.

We arrived at Brett’s house in the south-east of Melbourne to find two beautifully presented cars. As with every install we start with a quick clean of the potential surfaces so that no dirt can get trapped as we work through the various install locations. After discussing various mounting options Brett’s preference was to mount the SeaSucker Mini Bomber head-board and rear wheel straps entire on his roof.

A super low profile install that Brett can install and remove in less than two minutes. The quick release fork mounts point outwards making it easier to use. A highly flexible solution enabling both Paul and Brett to switch vehicles using the same bike rack.

Paul and Brett did highlight a concern to us. If the pedals rotated backwards whilst in transit the bike could potentially make contact with the roof. We provided Paul and Brett with several 20 cm long by 1 cm wide Velcro strips to secure the pedals to the frame.

We are happy to report that the Velcro is a perfect way to secure your pedals and will also include the Velcro strips as standard kit with all bike racks.
Below is Brett’s feedback after competing the onsite install.

“Chris was very helpful in answering our all of our inquiries regarding the SeaSucker products. Time was taken to explore the best mounting options on both our vehicles, with Chris happy to take the time to provide several options to find the most practical solution.  Chris also provided a good explanation around warranty replacements, which provided additional confidence when purchasing the Mini Bomber set up. Looking forward to getting away to our next road race meet with our new set up”

  1. Hey mate is also got a megane rs but unfortunately I have a downhill bike with a 20mm front axel is there a rack to suit this?
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Josh,
      Thank you for contacting us with your query.
      Our bike racks can accommodate downhill bikes by also purchasing a Grip Sports 20mm Fork Adpater.
      Link to Adapter: http://seasucker.com.au/store/for-cyclists/rack-accessories/20mm-grip-sports-fork-adapter-83-detail
      The adapter can be inserted inside the forks and is secured using the through bolt from your bike. In some cases however we have found you may have to adjust the width of the fork adapter as some forks are narrower than the width of the adapter (i.e. you may have to grind down the width of the fork adapter to suit your forks)
      If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us
