    Thule 594xt Sidearm vs Yakima Highrollers

    I am going to be carrying two downhill bikes (90lbs total). What do you guys recommend b/w these two roof racks?

    I've got both. Side arm works better than the high roller and the bike is more stable in it but I think the high roller looks 100 times better when folded down because It folds down flat.

    agree with yellowducman..
    among the benefits of a sidearm, which are often overlooked for short roof vehicles, is that 16" of the bike tray extends out over the front, with about 36" behind the front crossbar.
    the highroller, and other yakima upright carriers, like the frontloader, extend upwards of 50" behind the front crossbar, which can lead to nasty back glass interference.
