Strengths:    Cheap to purchase and adapts to road bike easily.

Weaknesses:    Very unstable over 60mph. Mounting brackets are inadequate. Head Assembly made of weak material.

Bottom Line:   
Purchased product because it was inexpensive. I mounted it to VW Passat. First time out with product traveling from GA to NY, I observed through the sunroof that my bike was rocking side to side. I was going 70mph which was the speed limit. I pulled over and checked the security of the rack. I tried to tighten the head assembly to the bars and u bolt was as tight as possible (I am very mechanically inclined). I stopped at a walmart along the way and purchased a ratchet strap. I was able to secure the bike by connecting the strap from the handlebars directly to the crossbar. I had to be very careful not to put too much pressure on the carbon frame. No more problems. When I arrived in NY I removed the Prologue from the rack. A piece of the front hole of the Head Assembly where the u bolt passes through fell out. Thule customer service also is very poor. You have to continually call to get problems rectified.

Personally this is a real prize for me as this is the bike I would have wanted if I could have had a race bike back then. My road bike was a used Sears and my da ... Read More »

Pacing for prologue type events

I'm doing a short 6 mile TT as part of a stage race. For longer (20-25mi) time trials, I will typically hold around 350W and average heart rate around 160bpm. I go anaerobic at 173bpm. I don't have a lot of data because this is the first year I've used a power meter and hrm and only done a few time ... Read More »

Prologue - Tony Martin Bike Problem?

So, Tony Martin had a problem with his bike, causing him to stop and change to a fresh machine. The question is... which component failed? Coverage on ITV4 showed only a microsecond before the failure - has anyone watching other stations been able to see it (or saw it in person?!)Read More »
