    Smile New owner, looking for advice on roof racks/bike racks

    Hey, folks.

    Just purchased a 2015 Micra for a commuter. Wondering if anyone has some recommendations for roof racks and bike racks?

    Really appreciate it.

    Welcome to the forum!

    We have a few members who have bought racks...

    IMPUL has one:

    So does Papapoil:



    Woofer did a hitch-mounted one:



    Thread: Micra trailer hitch... and hitch-mounted bike rack

    Callmemister did a basic hatch-strap-on one:



    Thread: 2500 km roadtrip. Micra Camper mode.

    And Alpha shows you can fit a large bike in the car OK without a rack at all:



    Thread: Passed the bike test

    Keep in mind a roof-mounted rack will murder your highway fuel economy compared to a rear mounted one (2nd best) or in the car (best).
