Others: Loading Is Difficult With Other Carrier Systems
This is hard to do for anyone, even with a step ladder. Without a step ladder it is an almost impossible task. (PS – You can purchase Thule’s Step Up – a platform that attaches to a tire to make it easier to load bikes on a roof rack, approx. $60)
If you have 3 or 4 bikes on a roof rack the system becomes a stacking system – you can not remove one of the center bikes without removing one of the outer bikes.
