DIY Suction Mounted Roof Rack

If you’re an amateur cyclist, you’re probably aware of the cost of a decent bike rack for your car. On top of that, installing a bike rack can be slightly cumbersome–not to mention a little theft-prone if you neglect to purchase a lock. For about $50 in parts, this handy DIY suction mounted roof rack looks like it would do a fine job of allowing you to shuttle your bike around. When not in use, it could easily be stored in the glove box. [via Bike Hacks]

    This is one of the reasons why I don’t go out for rides as much on my bike, I don’t have a roof rack. I would love to get something that attaches to my roof like this one where I can hook my bike up to it and then drive to a trail to go riding on. I could also get a roof rack where I can put all my stuff in so I have more room in the car, now that would be nice.
