Has anyone got a Thule 591 roof carrier which is used with an Orange5?? I'm looking to get the roof bars from Lidl's for 30 notes and was wondering if that carrier works ok with the downtube and cabling of the 5.

Patriots don't fit those carriers so I suspect it will be difficult with a 5 at best.
bert
Thanks....any ideas what will fit??
SammyC
What in the 591 or what carriers will fit a five?
bert
Sorry wasn't very clear.

What carrier will fit a 5 best on the roof.
torihada
my Orange 5 fits fine on my thule 591. In fact I have a roof full of Orange 5s & Alpines before.
bert
Thanks Torihada...does the clamp interfere with the cables at all?

Dan's Orange 5 sits fine in my 591 carrier, no cable issues and no frame rub. I lock his down just a couple of mm above the swingarm on the downtube.

No; on the Alpines we put the clamp under the cables and I think its the same with my 5. Anyway its never an issue with all the Orange bikes I carry.
