    Thought I'd share my setup as it's new this year.

    Thought I'd share my setup as it's new this year.-davm2m8.jpg

    As the title says, here's my current setup. Yakima bars and clips. The Q-towers were actually given to me by my brother in-law as they didn't need 2 cars anymore. The mount is a Yakima Frontloader (20mm thru axle on the front so it was pretty much my only choice)

    The car is a 2009 civic. I think it looks pretty decent. Mounted up well. It did add quite a bit of wind noise which can be partially reduced by closing the sunroof. I deal with it though because I like the sun .

    How do you like that rack? I'm thinking of getting one.

    I find that the wind noise is easily cured by the radio knob!

    It's great so far. And yeah, the wind noise is a minor annoyance which can easily be taken care of . I love the rack so far. Its extremely versatile and gives me a hell of a lot more storage options in the car since I don't have to cram the bike in the back seat. The only con is of course the price. I still am amazed at what it costs to fit one of these things onto a car. Now that I've got it though, I figure it will pay itself off over the next few seasons.

    Just out of curiosity, how will it do that?

    It's going to get a job..duh..

    In all seriousness though, I meant the convenience will be worth the money over the next 2 years.

    Oh, gotcha. Most people find that the decrease in fuel economy with a roof rack (loaded or unloaded) costs them money over the course of ownership.
