    Roof Rack for my car

    Go for the bike rack called the Sidearm...I work at a shop that installs these all the time, and they are great...very sturdy, and very quick and easy. And only a few more dollars than the fork mount racks.

    Yea i am trying to stick with thule because the shop I work at sells it so its a little cheaper for me.. Is the side arm compatible with a lefty? Because all the pictures I see the arm is touching the fork arch, and leftys sure dont have one of those.

    Yeah, it's definitely compatible with the Lefty...two guys I work with at the shop have Prophets, and one of the guys has a Rush. No problem whatsoever. Hope this helps.

    I have an older 599 or something like that and it works great with my Prophet with Lefty. My buddy has the 599XTR and it works better than my older model does.
