Tell Us Your Story Bike Rack Crashes / Roof rack damage
"I have a 2005 Honda Accord with Thule rack installed. One day after returning from a ride, I failed to realize that my bike was on the roof, and pulled into my carport. I was notified of the presence of my bike by a loud crunching noise. The bike was on a fork mounted carrier, and was resting nose down on the car. The tip of the seat barely caught the steel beam supporting the roof of the carport, and pushed the bike backwards, dislodging the roof rack from the car breaking the bike rack itself, and denting the car door sill. Thankfully, the bike seems perfectly fine, but I need a way to remind myself, so there is not a next time. After some googling, I found lookupdummy. The end for now, hopefully forever."
