I don't have the part number, I actually went to a Saab dealer and ordered them. I just described the parts to the guy at the counter and he found them on a parts diagram. IIRC they were around $40 for all four. You may want to check the distance between the mounting holes on the sedan. The holes on the wagon are about 98mm center to center.

I'm interested Dude,
I just ordered yakima's lowrider, crossbars, a fairing, and a bike mount. $430 OOOOUUUUCHHHHHH........ How much more cost effective was your method and was it a lot more work? I have an 07' wagon much like yours.

Ur ride looks AWESOME (both car & bike), how do you like that Felt? never rode an mtb felt only roadies.

That setup looks kinda slick.

I've always had fairings on my vehicles because I hate the wind howl from the crossbars.

I don't think it's much more cost effective than the setup with the lowriders. The control towers are a little less but you also have to buy the landing pads. On top of that I had to buy the Saab parts and I'd still like to get the trim off of the Saab too. That way I can cut it to fit nice and clean around where the mounts are. It wasn't too much work, just a little time consuming. I have the fairing for it too I just haven't installed it yet, it's a little noisy on the freeway but not too bad.

PM me if you'd like and I'll send you the dimensions for the parts that I made.

Thanks . I'm a bit biased when it comes to bikes, I work for Felt, so needless to say I really like the way it rides.

Lucky you working for Felt I used to work in a bike shop when I was younger to pay my education and if I could I would go right back in the bike business it's like a little community and it's so much fun !

I did the same thing, I worked in a shop all through school and when I finished I got a real job. I worked in aerospace for about 5 years until I realized it was way too conservative and up tight. Going back to the bike industry was the best thing I think I've ever done. I actually like my job now.

I think you made the best move ever to go back in the bike industry. I will probably do the same at some point and quit my IT job and go back in the industry to work with bikes it's more pleasant then working on computer and network problem all day

My addition



and for fun


Have the Q7 clips on the way and a new yakima decal for the fairing. Will post up a new with the yakima decal I made today.

I've got my front light bar going back on soon, a STi scoop again, and maybe a set of hella black magics on the rack. Eventually powdercoating the wheels black with maybe a red lip. (wheels ARE bronze btw )

(btw... the fairing makes a HUGE difference)

Guys I'm looking at getting a roof top box for my wrx wagon (on factory rails, the tear drop cross-section ones) to help on a long distance move from MN to NJ. Does anyone have experience with the Subaru box? Its cheaper than the Thule/Yakima boxes but I've never seen it in person. Seems like the Thule/Yakima boxes are probably more advanced and constant updated.

Not happy - I just removed the rack to find that the rubber feet have dented the roof in one place and damaged the door trim in another...

What's more...I had to snap off the aero flares that run along the door trim so the rack could fit on...then it took me hours to get the sticky stuff off...

Did somebody say roof rack!!! Think I need a GT Wagon for the mountain and for biking...!

:-(

Anyone have problems with their Yakima fairing pads not staying in place? I keep putting on new pads but they always seem to move after a while (the two outside ones) - I guess due to wind. Evrytime I put on a new one, I make sure that the surface is REALLY clean. Oh well...just a minor gripe

I have an 06 Wagon with the spoiler on the rear hatch. I was hoping to use a yakima raptor for my bike, mounted to yakima crossbars, and also use the yakima fairing. Will the front of the rack extend past the fairing with this type of upright mount? what about with a fork mount? thanks!

Roof racks increase drag hence lowering gas mileage.

It doesn't lower the mpg that much. In my experience I've only lost around 1-3 mpg average.

I lose about 2-3 when I am on a roadtrip with my box. What can you do? Better than driving two cars right.

Here are some updated pics of mine with out the nasty clips on the window trim, kind of a pain to do but well worth it. Also the carbon fairing that I made!
