Hypothetical: I'm driving down the road with my bike on the roof. A car full of drunk teenagers talking on cell phones pulls out in front of me. I have 4-wheel disc brakes, low-profile performance tires and front and rear sway bars at my disposal; I avoid the accident with relative ease via quick maneuvers. Saved! But where'd my bike go?

What's better to keep the bike safe up there, a downtube mount or a fork mount? Not necessarily from coming loose under abuse, but from bending the frame, etc? Or is this a non-issue and I should go with whichever I prefer for other reasons?

doubtful, at best. i've seen cars in accidents that still have the bike attached.

stand on your hood and shake your bike. it's solid.

That's all I needed to know - thanks! Less obvious (and expensive) fork mount it is.

Don't stand on your hood, though. You'll probably regret it. ;)
