    thule racks

    aight so earlier i asked about hitch racks but i've decided agenst that (won't work well on a camry + i can use a roof rack for my skis too). i know for sure i'm gonna use the Thule sidearm bike racks, i don't want to have take wheels off or clamp onto frames. but i'm torn over which base rack to get:
    the 400xt aero feet with regular load bars
    http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/prod...id=3&sku=400XT
    or
    the 400xtr rapid aero feet with the aero load bars
    http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/prod...d=3&sku=400XTR
    i can get them for about the same price so i was just wondering if anyone here has had some actual experience with either of these. area there any particular advantages of one over the other? any input would be greatly appreciated

    Go with the square bars, if you go with aero bars you will need an adapter to to attched the back of the sidearm tray to the t-track on the aero bars.

    Idea! Only advantage to the aero bars I am aware of...

    Aero bars are designed to effect your gas milage less than the other bars. Yakima has new ski/snowboard stuff going in the same direction as well.
