Looking to carry bikes with the GLA and have been looking at Thule roof bars. Anyone else do it this way or do you use something else?

I use the Mercedes roof bars Thule ProRide 591. They work great. I would have got the Thule roof rails, but the Merc ones were cheaper than the Thule Aero.
The Mercedes ones are similar to the Thule windbar, they look good, but are less practical as the useable rail ends at the mount. With Other types, the rail extends beyond the mount so you can carry bigger stuff.
I can fit the rails and the carrier in under 5 minutes.

Sorry about the delay. The bike rack quotes a 20kg limit. Nothing on the bars, but cars seem to quote a limit for the roof of 75kg
