Pros: quick release clamp
" This frame is the best solution for carrying bikes with delicate carbon fibre frames, since there is no clamping of the tubes. You may want to get a carrier for the removed front wheel, if space is tight in your car. Very easy to lock to your existing roof bars, or remove when not required. "

Pros: good quality, fits aero and square roof rack bars, fork mount protects the frame
Cons: expensive however worth it
" The 561 roof mounted rack replaces the original Thule Velo Vise Pro roof rack.
The 562 head construction is now heavy duty plastic which at first I thought would not be strong enough, however it is and holds the bike fork very well.
I use the rack for my road and mountain bikes and I like it because is does not use an arm to clamp onto the frame, which can cause damage.
The front wheel has to be removed to lock the fork into the frame, however just purchase a wheel bag and put your wheel in the car. "
