    Roof rack creaking noises with bikes

    I have a 2021 LR+ with the roof rack purchased from Tesla. The roof rails seem to be quite sturdily attached to the car. I can pull on them vigorously and they don't move, don't make any noises. They seem quite solid. However, my confidence level goes down when I have a bike or two on the...

    Rear mounted bike rack

    I have a model X without the towing hitch. When I contacted Tesla about an after market hitch they informed me that this “wasn’t certified in the EU”??? With the Falcon doors a roof mounted rack seems incredibly risky, that leaves a rear mounted rack as the only viable choice. I’ve tried...

    Car flex and losing a roof rack with bikes?

    I’ve had the Tesla Whispbar roof rack on my Model S for two years and used it on around 4,000 miles of trips with either two tandem kayaks or 4 bikes. I use Yakima JayLows for the kayaks and Yakima Front Loaders for the bikes. I’m pretty diligent about checking the system and take it off and on...

    For Sale: Model S Roof Rack and Whispbar Bike Carriers

    Replaced my Model S with a new Model S that doesn't have a Panoramic roof so these excellent products are not compatible with my new car. This is the best way to carry your precious bikes in style. They are incredibly well made. The racks are also compatible with Whispbar cargo carriers...

    Does anyone else think Tesla should partner with Calfee, Parlee, or Argonaut?

    So, if you're reading this you probably know where my thoughts are going: Tesla ought to team up with a US carbon fiber bicycle manufacturer. Together they could make a Tesla-licensed bicycle. Like Ducati did with Bianchi, or Porsche has been known to do, or like Toyota already did with...

    My bikes fit!

    The sun is out in Portland, OR, it's near 80F, that means it's time to go out into the country and do some serious biking. With my previous car, I used a roof rack (does terrible things for mileage, as you might think). Hard to believe I haven't done this yet, but I tested my S to see if my...
