Finally, Yakima rack accessories for the bike and snowboards. Yes, I did a lot of homework on the forums. My 2 cents.
This is EXACTLY the route I went some time ago and I'm totally happy with it. The OEM bars are admittedly more flexible than the Thule or the such, but they have never let me down and I've hauled many things on them, including dressers, beds, you name it. I like the look way better too. The medium Inno fairing doesn't do much for sound reduction but it looks great. This is a solid choice! I also use the Yakima/Subaru snowboard clips. They're perfect!
