Thule also makes a complete line of accessories. For example, there are five different bike holders. With this and other accessories, Thule is the most versatile rack you could own. Don't trust your bikes to cheap roof racks - invest in the best - Thule roof racks.
Thule also makes trunk racks for bikes. Trunk racks involve less lifting to mount the bikes and are considerably less expensive. Thule trunk racks fit as well as their roof racks. A convenient "dial a fit" system allows the trunk rack to be quickly and easily mounted to most cars. The construction of the racks is also first rate. Everything from the rubber bike cradles to the sturdy steel frame is of the highest quality. Trust Thule roof and trunk racks for all your recreational equipment!

The Trace bike carrier, however, allows you to use both the bike carrier and the trailer hitch. The key is Trace's unique mounting bracket which sets the bike carrier beside the hitch ball. This also allows a ball hitch carrier that is easily removed when not in use. Trace racks fit up to 2 bikes for $89.99US or $119.98Cdn, 3 bikes for $97.49US or $129.98Cdn, and 4 bikes for only $119.99US or $159.98Cdn.
PS: A great accessory for any trunk rack is the Trace Tie Down Strap. Price, $7.49US or $9.98Cdn.
Giro has been the leader in helmet design. One of Giro's greatest innovations is the Roc Loc. Developed three years ago for professional mountain bikers this Roc Loc assures the best possible fit. What sets the Roc Loc apart from other retention systems is that the Roc Loc is independent of the retention straps.
This allows the retention straps to be adjusted to keep the helmet secure and the Roc Loc can be adjusted to make the helmet sit on your head like a favorite hat.
The Giro Ricochet RL features the RocLoc retention system. It also has the sleek styling cyclist have come to expect from Giro. Seven vents channel air though the helmet and suck out hot air keeping you cool and comfortable. Another cool feature of the Giro Ricochet RL is the detachable visor. Check out this great helmet from Giro, just $82.49US or $109.98Cdn.
Specialized takes a slightly different approach to helmet fit and retention. Their system, called Brainlock, brings the straps of the helmet down low at the back of the head. This system holds the helmet snugly to the head without the helmet feeling uncomfortably tight. The Brainlock spreads the straps at the back of the helmet and helps keep them from getting twisted.
The Air Wave helmet from Specialized features eight large vents with three air channels to keep you cool. The Air Wave is incredibly light too, just 9 0z. The Specialized Air Wave helmet sells for $52.49US or $69.98Cdn.
If you are looking for a new helmet Giro and Specialized have great products to offer.
