I have the same issue and I have big DH bikes most of the time on mine. Probably look at a round bar setup next spring. The Yakima Front Loaders work awesome though.

Wow Phil, that's impressive! Two DH bikes?! I guess my single 29er should be okay. I have been wondering if there was a way to stiffen the stock bars just a little.....

Haven't posted in awhile, here is my bike rack!




I went with OEM Subaru crossbars, Yakima Raptor Aero racks, and the Inno Wind Fairing.

FYI, had the factory crossbars on my 09 wrx and they flexed a ton even with one bike. I know it costs more, but go aftermarket .

it isn't a Subaru unless it has a rack... year-round racks ftw!

I did the Q7 clip mod so it mounts to the raingutters instead of the outer trim. Word of advice if you do it, line the mounts up as close to the edges of the roof as possible... accidentally tried going into the garage a couple weeks ago with my road bike up top and my roof is dented because of it... all good though! getting fixed this week! I'm going to try and line the mounts up on the gutter trim this time if possible.





and then I bagged it.

Rear-round racks FTW. Also Yakima Highroller for the win. I absolutely love mine. On and off in 30 seconds

Hey everyone. Just wondering what snowboard attachments fit onto the OEM subaru racks? Picking up an OEM roof rack with inno fairing and need a snowboard attachment for it. Something that works well and holds everything securely. Thanks!

Are they the newer arrow bars? Or the older style? If older one the Thule snowboard attachment fits! Holds 4 boards perfect!!

That's the newer style, like mine, but I had a set of Thule racks on it without issues.

ScoobyFreak you can't go wrong with Yakima FatCats... I have the FatCat 6 from a few years back. they come with universal mounts to fit all types of crossbars. Whichever brand of ski racks you go with, just make sure they come with universal mounts because the standard round or square bar mounts won't work on your car. Most brands make them and have them available to purchase separately too.

My personal opinion is Thule makes the best base rack systems (mounts and crossbars) and Yakima makes the best racks (the part that actually holds your stuff). I opted for a full Yakima setup on mine.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree, yakima makes great stuff, but didn't feel like spending the 700-800 bucks on one at the moment. Came across the OEM bars and inno fairing locally for a steal, so I jumped on it. I only will be hauling our snowboards, so nothing crazy. I think it should work just fine. I'll take a look at the fatcat and the thule snow attachment.

Here's a better shot of the rack

Has anyone been able to seperately buy an accessory bar for a yakima loadwarrior, or is it only available for the megawarrior?

I like your vinyl wrapped fairing. I just finished making one out of 1/4 in lexan with three aluminum brackets and stainless hardware. I wrapped it in some dark digital camo just for fun. I just need to tweak the middle bracket a little to get it to sit a little more flush with the roof.

Props on your hard work and clean install. I personally never liked how the fairing sits inside the feet pack of the crossbars, so I did a roof rail delete and went with a waay oversized Thule fairing. I'm not finding my photos at this moment, so I'll post up when I do.
