An Innovative Bicycle Roof Rack Using Sliding Rail Technology 2000-01-3089

The modification of the Talon Roof Carrier, by E-Z Load Technologies, into a bicycle carrier, simplifies the loading and unloading of bicycles onto the rack. A modification of the slide rail system decreases weight and bulkiness, allowing easier installation. A redesign of the attachment method of the rack to the roof improves compatibility with the manufacturer-installed roof rack. Mounting the bicycle to the rack is less challenging with the addition of a bicycle carrier platform. The ease of raising and lowering the rack is increased with a more reliable and user friendly locking mechanism. Added paralleling plates eliminate binding, ensuring smooth motion.
