Today on our 2012 Ford Fusion, we're going to be test fitting the Rocky Mounts Euro pitchfork roof mounted bike rack. Part number RKY1103. To mount the euro pitchfork into our load bar, we'll first need to remove the rubber stripping from the center channel on top of our load bar. Once we have the bike rack in place, the stripping can be left out or can be cut to fit and re-installed to keep wind noise down. We'll slide the block underneath the head of our bike rack into the front channel. We'll position the bile rack and then use the included alen wrench to tighten these bolts down.
Today on our 2012 Ford Fusion, we'll be test fitting the Thule domestique roof mounted bike carrier. Part number TH513. To mount the bike carrier up on top of our roof rack, we'll set the head of the bike carrier on top of our frontload bar. We'll fit the clamp around and tighten it down with the included alen wrench. At the rear of the bike rack, we'll position the clamp over the rear load bar and again use the included alen key to tighten it down. With our bike rack secured to the roof rack, we'll re-install the skewer at the front of the rack.
Today on this 2012 Ford Fusion, we're going to be test fitting the Swagman Fork Down Roof Mounted Bike Carrier, part number S64710.We already have the carrier assembled according to the instructions and now we're ready to mount it up on the vehicle. We'll place the bike rack up on top of our load bars. We'll take the two U-bolts at the front, feed them around our load bar and tighten them down with the included wing nuts. Then we'll move to the back, position the rear U-bolt and tighten it around our rear load bar. Once we have done that, we're ready to mount up our bicycle. We'll place the rear wheel of our bike in the wheel tray and position the front fork down in the skewer.
