If somebody is talking about roof racks, then chances are they wish to carry something on the roof. In which case the prime objective is to carry shiit, not to look good.

To the OP - what is it that you want to carry?

Re: Let me see some roof racks

IMO it looks awesome, the rack isn't permanent so you can take it off when you dont need it. Im looking just to throw a bag or two, your snowboard or bootsup there. It takes that much space out of your car, especially when travelling far distances.

this is true, it just seems like i have seen more and more roof racks on things bc its the "in" thing and not for the function of it.

Re: Let me see some roof racks

In some ways, it's just another JDM style phase. Pretty soon those who don't actually need them will realise that they get better fuel milage without the racks, and they'll wind up on ebay or something.

Re: Let me see some roof racks

Not sure about these style ones, but a lot of the ones you can buy over here are a horizontal bar, with an attachment that fits on with U-bolts. So in theory you'd be able to have your snowboard on today, then put a different attachment set on tomorrow for the bike.

Re: Let me see some roof racks

I just picked one up used, tired of struggling to fit ONE bike inside. BTW, this is a Yakima rack w/ stretch kit. These crossbars are 58", 10" longer than necessary b/c they came from a Ford Ranger. I think I'm going to hacksaw off the excess.
