Well, I currently have a Sportworks Factory Bob on the roof that sits on the factory rails of my Subaru Outback. It is my backup carrier for a third bike (I have the 1.25" T2 on my hitch). However, with a bike on it, it flexes the factory rails even though I have it sitting pretty close to the edge. If I switch to tougher rails like Thule/Yakima and want to sumply switch it over, I'm sure the Bob will flex the new rails much less (since the factory rails are cheap plastic).
So the question is- will the factory adapter used by the bike mount fit the square or round bars of the Thule/Yakima. I know I can just get the Thule Sidearm or Sportworks Bob Rachet if I get a new roof system but if this one works, I don't have to hassle with selling it and buying a new one. What do you guys think? The factory adaptors are simply a couple of curved metal pieces that go around the factory bars and tighten around it with nuts and bolts.
