E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Roof lift on rear bike rack?

Hi, I have a rear BMW bike rack on my 128i. After shoulder surgery, I have been advised not to lift stuff like my bike. Does anyone know if the BMW roof lift can be adapted to the rear rack? Thanks

Sorry no help on the roof rack.

You might want to check with your Physician or Therapist before going back to riding your bike.

Roof Rack Hydraulic Life

Did you look at the BMW roof rack hydraulic lift for mountain bikes? There is a lever that sets the bike down below side window height and lifts it up to the roof. Only works for mountain bikes. I have one for sale if you are interested. You can see a picture at the BMWUSA.com acessories/sports page.
