How do you fit a yakima fairing on an oem rack? TIA.
Inno medium fairing

I'd say they can hold a lot of stuff. Not a bad setup at all. Golf clubs, roadside tools, range bag, ammo can, tool bag, baseball bag, 5 bats, 3 pairs of golf shoes, surf rack pads, cycling shoes, bike helmet, snowboard helmet, camelbak, sleeping bag, hammock, tire cables, climbing shoes, chalk bag, chalk, hiking poles, 2 wetsuits, dive goggles, 3 pairs of snowboard boots, 2 pairs of hiking boots, road bike wheel, and some water shoes all in the trunk. On top I put my big scuba bag, a toolbox, suitcase, 4 snowboards and a bike.

If anyone is looking for a roofbox, this looks like a really good deal. I almost bought one even though I have no use for it right now lol

thanks. i would be using it quite a bit locally, maybe 30 miles round trip tops. i may haul it north to other places, but that'll be few and far between. maybe 3 time a year.

Quick question:

I want to add a rack to my 2012 WRX. I prefer the OEM bars. If I go with a thule or Yakima bike tray/rack, will I need a special adaptor to make it work with the OEM bars or are they compatible right off the bat?


Lots of great ideas and photos in this thread.

After a very through search, I have come up empty. I've even looked for specs from the Manufacture to no avail. (if I had these, I could probably measure it out for myself.

I have a '12 5-door and I'll be going with an OEM crossbar set up. In addition, I'll be carrying two bikes. I'll never go far and for convenience, I am looking to pick up the following:

RockyMount JAWBRIDGE

http://www.rockymounts.com/bike_rack...dge_p/0412.htm

The question? Will the hatch door clear with bikes loaded?

The factory bars will not work with yak or thule feet. thule had a bar set from 2011-2012, called the aero bar, which is different than the aeroblade bar that you see on thier website today. The aero bar resembles the factory cross bars the closest while still maintaining thule foot compatablity.

Im going to say yes your hatch door will close, simply because unlike most bike racks, that rocky mount has two adjustable crossbar connection points, rather than the usual single adjustable connection point. This means youll be able to slide the rockymount forward until hatch clearance isn't an issue.

also- youve chosen a frame grabbing bike rack. i recommend wheel grabbing, or wheel off, unless your bike is a junker.

Thanks for the comments. I asked my question poorly. What I meant to ask was will this OEM fixed bar: https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1141

work with trays like these: http://www.rei.com/product/710453/th...ght-bike-mount

without additional specialized clamps or adaptors? Will the trays just clamp straight onto the OEM bar?

Thanks!

That grabs the wheels both front and rear. It uses the bar to stabilize the bike.


FWIW, I have the RockyMounts Noose (front wheel removal) and it is solid.

This roof rack craze reminds me of the mid 90's when the Japanese would buy racks and snowboards and put them on their cars as props.
