Yakima Roof Rack Installed

There's a couple threads around about the roof rack but no one seems to have one. I decided to take the plunge and get it as I've started to get into cycling and need a method of transporting my road bike. Sure I could throw it in the back, but if a buddy wants to roll, I can't fit two in there.

Anyways here's the pics. Hopefully the useful for those who are interested in carrying more cargo.

If you have questions, ask away.

Installed



Matching the RSPEC



Bike Mounted



Side View



The reason for it all. Fuji Team Full carbon frame, shimano 105 groupo

Yeah. The gen coupe needs the newer Q tower set though. I forget which specifically, but its not the older ones.

I got it @ REI with one viper bike mount. With CA taxes it came out to $63X.XX. Good thing about REI and being a member - 10% back on the purchase PLUS lifetime, no questions asked return policy. I was really on the fence because I feel that it's a lot for a rack, but the lifetime return policy sealed the deal for me.

You can build the entire setup on yakimas website

Q clips #46 (i think?)
Newer Q Towers
58" cross bars
50" fairing
SKS locks 6x pack
1x Viper bike mount, I'll probably get another this week.

I also want to get a basket! hahaha

The rack will work with *most of the attachments. So snowboards, skis, baskets, cargo boxes etc should be fine. The ones that it won't work with are anything that needs a lot of room between the roof and the bar. The majority of the stuff is fine.

I will say, it was a little nerve wrecking mounting this up to my 3 day old car. Great part about this cars setup is that the rubber weather strips on the door edge allow the Q clips to be installed without touching the paint. I was a little uneasy about the Q towers though. I tried to make sure there wasn't anything underneath them before mounting.

Looks very nice!

I too have a Fuji road bike as well (2006 Team Pro w/ Dura Ace Zipp SLss handle bar and SL Stem swap), to bad I got hit by a van while ridding it. *sigh*

Thanks for the info! I'll stop by REI and check it out. If I get rid of my Land Rover I'll need a way to get my mtb around.

That looks really good! I was wondering what it would look like with a rack.

Its refreshing to see a roof rack without a fixed gear / BMX bike, JDM stickers, or just sitting there to look cool.

You are not your signature.
