    Bike Transport (Van)

    Why not look into some of the cheaper frame holding roof top bike holders. These are usually around $150 each and will have a quick release clamp that will attach to the frame.

    Bike Transport (Van)

    This will all come down to how easy you would like to load the bikes and your budget. The cheapest solution would be moto tie downs with solid eye bolts installed on those tracks. This would be quite time consuming but it will be cheap. I would look into using the arm off Thule's side arm...

    Thule roof rack issues
