I actually haven't much online except for strap on trunk mount racks (although that doesn't mean there isn't anything). What you might want to do is get a list of the parts you need and call around to a few bike shops to see what their prices are and if they ship. I'm not sure if there is some kind of retail price controlling by the manufacturer, but I get the feeling that you win't find too many deals...

Yak and Thule do not discount their stuff very often. Very difficult to find on sale, but check out rei.com They carry both.

REI.com definitely has my vote. I've been shopping at their stores for 25 years!

Yakima and Thule hold pretty tight control over their prices, so I doubt you're going to get a discount. But I think REI puts Yakima on sale ONCE a year. So if you can wait...

I'd recommend www.rackwarehouse.com . I bought my footpack and fitkit from them. Good price and terrific service.

You might want to try www.coloradocyclist.com to. They have all the cool cycling accessories and carry Yakima. Expensive stuff (I know after spending a bundle on it over the years). Might want to check local bike shops and big box sporting goods stores since they sometimes discount racks that are a model year old.

Humph- I didn't think I could get them online. Maybe I will get around to replacing the crummy Saris stuff with Thule one of these days.

Sorry to say, Garrick, the RS is still
belly-up
I hope to have it rolling again soon though.
I got a hoot out of the bling-bling photo of 'you and Keith'in another thread.

Yeah, we sometimes look really different in photos for some reason.

Are you getting a new motor for the RS?

Looks like I've decided to get 2 Steelheads and a Doublecross set from rackwarehouse. There are a few places online that are a few dollars cheaper, but their websites look kinda scary!

Thanks for everybody's help,
~G

It looks like I'm going with a new shortblock and just reusing the intakes heads etc.
If this hadn't happened, I probably would've gotten a new WRX, but now I cant justify both expenses.

, well, good luck... hopefully you'll be back on the road sometime soon! I'd hate to be without my Subie for months.

First autox of the season here is at Montour Falls this coming Sunday, but I don't suppose you'll have the car fixed in time.

Yakima, from what I have seen, does not discount their racks to anyone... the prices that were charged at my local bike store, local climbing store and REI.com were all the EXACT same. REI does allow you to become a member and get money back at the end of the year though...

All in all I spent:
$40 for two sets of Q-clips
$100 for a set (4) QTR towers
$40 for cross bars
$100 for a lockable full length tray

I had the trays and the fron wind fairing from an older car... but the prices are about the same everywhere...

I had a difficult time getting the rack to fit my car and without CAREFUL planning, the sunroof cannot be opened with it on.
