    Recommendations for 2014 Ford Fusion roof rack?

    Hey all. I just got a new 2014 Ford Fusion. It's a fleet vehicle for the company I work for. I am able to use it for personal use and am allowed to add whatever I want as long as it's removable once it's time to swap it out for miles. The only no-no is I can't mount a hitch to it so that rules out a hitch mount rack. I'm looking strongly at the Thule Aerobar and Sidearm setup for the ease of use, ability to lock everything and fuel efficiency. Anyone have any other suggestions for this type of car? Looking at the Rocky Mounts Brass Knuckles as well once it's released. They fit all crossbar styles.

    The sidearm is a great rack. It has worked well for me for about a year. You'd be able to fit 3 across the top. Make sure to take the time to set them up correctly so the arms are easy to reach and all the bikes face forward.

    I've used the sidearm for about 4 years now and find it to be an awesome rack. We have the Highroller's on clearance, but it won't work on AeroBlade bars without some modification.
    The Brass Knuckles seem really nice and we're looking forward to getting our hands on this rack when it's released.
    Check out our MTBR discount coupon. We'd love to help you with this configuration.

    I got around the fleet pgm hitch issue by not having the required wiring harness. They don't want any towing, but a bike rack doesn't qualify as towing... No wired harness = no towing

    Good point. I will email them to find out if that'll be kosher for me. Thanks!
