Best Way to Transport Expensive Road Bikes with a 2015 Mercedes E-350 Wagon


I have a 2015 mercedes e350 wagon and wish to purchase rear mounted two bike capacity rack. It must be very reliable and sturdy because it will be used for expensive road bikes. Which do you recommend? Please reply to

Since there are not hitches available to fit your vehicle and trunk mounted bike racks aren't exactly the most secure your best option is going to be a roof rack and roof bike rack.

First let's start with a roof rack. For that you would want the Thule Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R and 53" WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711420 that will attach to your raised side rails on your roof.

For your expensive road bike I would recommend a fork mounted rack like the Yakima HighSpeed Roof Bike Rack # Y02115 as it will install securely and won't touch the frame of your bike at all for installation.
