    Question on Yakima Viper fork mount

    Hey guys, been using a Yakima steelhead for years but sold the rack when I got out biking a few years back. I recently purchased a Focus Raven 6.0 29er and am in the market for a new roof rack. I am only looking at Yakima and the two racks specifically I am considering are the viper and the sprocketrocket. the Viper seems to have some poor reviews on the Yakima site with customers stating that the design of the rack does not work for 29ers with medium to large disk brakes. Can anyone shed some light on this? Id much rather go with the viper over the sprocketrocket but obviously ive got to be able to get my bike on it. Thanks guys.

    I think the sprocket rocket has a great skewer, and I've not heard of anyone with issues with a viper, even with a 180mm rotor.
