Thanks for all your thoughts chaps; appreciated.

I do like the idea of the towbar/rear mounted rack combo but is going to set me back around 500 which is by far the most expensive but think provides the best solution (no drag, reduced wind noise, ease of access & removal, leave the roof free to potential roof box, etc). We'll have to see how full my pockets are feeling when the time is right.

Reaching the roof on the QQ+2 is a pain in the arse as I'm 'average' height, I can't reach it easily when washing it (rarely admittedly), so the thought of lifting a bike above my head & onto the roof doesn't excite me. But, for the cost, and the occassional use, shouldn't be ruled out.

I'll think on...
