    Roof Rack for a 50" Wheelbase Jeffsy

    I have a XXL YT Jeffsy CF Comp on order, and need to find a roof rack that will accommodate the 1266mm (49.9") wheelbase. Preferably a rack that allows for the front wheel to stay on the bike.

    I've contacted Yakima and Thule, both of which said they don't have anything that will work for a 50" wheelbase.

    Anyone out there running into the same issue? Or have a roof rack that would work?

    Update:

    1Up USA makes a roof rack that will accommodate up to a 54" wheelbase.

    I don't see why the Yakima High Road wouldn't hold a 50" wheelbase. My enduro is 48" and there is more room to slide back the rear tire base.

    I had a Yakima High Road on order initially. Before it shipped I called Yakima and they told me to cancel the order because a 50" wheelbase wouldn't fit. I wasn't actually able to try my bike out on a High Road though.

    I have a 50.5” wheelbase bike and Yakima high rollers. I could jerry rig it to somewhat work but not well. I use a one-up now. That’s the only thing I could find that works well.
