I'm using Whispbars. They're a lot quieter than my friend's Thule setup.

The trouble with Whispbars right now is that there are a limited number of attachment options. Give it a year or so and we'll start to see some more offerings.

The SeaSucker rack works amazingly well actually. It's an excellent system overall, but its expensive. They've loaded them up on Stock car's and run hot laps with a bike up there. No problems.

Just got my Load Warrior put on over the weekend. Won a $250 gift card from ORS Racks Direct for submitting a review. Naturally I got a basket. I was able to put my bike tray back on, but haven't come up with a good way to put my snowboard mounts and keep the fairing on the basket?

As is I have the OEM Crossbars and RockyMounts TieRod bike rack. Thinking about adding a fairing to cut down on wind noise. I have a 2009 Impreza 2.5, advice on which is best?

I had an inno medium on my OEM crossbars, and the fitment was great (both the mounting to the bars, and the width coverage of the roof).

Yeah I have a set on my Audi. Definately sleek compared to OEM bars. But I plan on purchasing OEM base bars for my Impreza.

I agree, great product. I had also read about increased highway speed noise. Not the case for me. No increase in noise at speed over oem cross bars.

Agreed.


The rola racks on my Speed3, however, deliver the most epic whistle at any speed over 25.

I miss my STi.
