Not the best picture but here's my cactus with its new roofbars fitted. Just need to get the cycle carrier on now :D

Looking good.....

I was thinking of doing the same last year but was unsure what to use. What did you use, cost etc ?

These are thule Wingbar Edge 9581 in black they're currently reduced in halfords to £231 from £300. Not cheap but they come as a complete unit and are low profile and easy to fit. Also available in silver but black goes better with my red and black cactus

Thank you for the info - so then you would still need a bike carrier ?

Yeah I looked at the official Citroën ones but hated how high they were considering the side rails are high to begin with

Flipping heck Southcoast cactus...£231 each!!!!!!
Fancied a pair so phoned my pal who works at Halfords....even with his staff discount I'll need a second mortgage......It would be cheaper to buy Halfords own brand and have em' sprayed black at a paint shop.
As we say here in Lancashire "A blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't see the difference"!

Hold that thought Southcoastc...... Double checked with my mate...would appear their system was down yesterday and yup the price is indeed for a pair....still steep but better than twice the price....Apologies.
