Anyone know if there's possibility to install one? Ford should offer this as optional accessory, just like the tow hitch.

This has been brought up in a previous thread somewhere on here. If was reported that Ford were working with a third party to come up with a roof rack. Not heard anything since.

This and trailer hitch options would be nice to know before the vehicles are scheduled for production.

Yes, this is of interest to quite a few of us and why many wanted a factory hitch for North America mme’s.

Neither Thule nor Yakima currently show The MME as a search option, hardly surprising considering the vehicle isn’t out yet. I suspect we will see roof rack start coming available from both of those companies earlier in the 2021 calendar year.

how is my storied Cervelo P3 supposed to ride in style without an MME rack? ;)

My QR PR5 rides inside the vehicle. Easy to remove the front wheel.

Well . . . I just have a Trek DS 3. 😝 But I still would like an easy way to haul my bike to the trails.

That's fine for one bike but definitely a non-starter for 2.

Probably safetr than a roof rack for most of us too.

Trek DS3 is a great bike. The only thing storied about my P3 is that it has two Kona IMWC stickers on it cause I was lucky enough to do the race twice. Yes, luck not talent.

If I have more than one bike I'll just put in the Tacoma's rail rack. I'd honestly prefer a hitch rack though. Less chance of scrapping the bikes off when you drive into the garage because you forgot they were there.

My S-Works Tricross fits inside my Bolt EV without taking the wheel off. Would expect it to fit even more easily in the Mach-E.

<----- Zero experience with roof racks. Do those actually work all the time?
I can't say from experience, but I can say that I wouldn't trust such a thing as far as I could throw it. I'm out of shape, so that's not very far.

I've used it with two bikes and on the highway -- no issues. My only complaint is lack of convenient locking solutions, but it works great for short transports when you're not just leaving bikes on the car unattended.

The first time I heard about these types of racks was from a Bolt owner that drives for 8-10 hours on the freeway w/two bikes without any issues. He had a knock-off version.
