    Are there bike racks for factory racks (elongated shape) ?

    I am familiar with the racks from Thule and Yakima, which mount on the Thule and Yakima cross bars and the Thule or Yakima footpods.

    Now, I have a subaru with a bit elongated bars (thinned bur larger). Are there any bike mounts that can fit on this ??? I got a roof box from Yakima, it has a very convenient clamping system that makes it fit on any cross-bar, in particular on these flat ones. Does anybody make bike mounts with a similar design ??

    Thanks !

    Yakima does have adapters for different crossbars.

    Performance bike also has a rack that is very well made and fits that style cross bar, they are made by InnoRV I think it is. I have a pair of them on my old bike hauler Ford Explorer and they are very nice, my neighbor has the Rockymounts, and they are nice for the money, but these Inno's are much nicer IMHO.

    +2 Had them on a Subaru, but the Subie racks were curved so any rack attached to them resulted in the bikes sitting a little tilted. Not a big deal unless your obsessive-compulsive.
