    Wheel mount roof trays, which ones?

    Looking for some roof trays with wheel mount for my Thule square bars. Looking at Malone Pilot TC, Yakima Frontloader, and 1UP roof trays. Which would you go with?

    I've lost my bike on the freeway using a Yakima. I now have a Rocky mountain brass knuckles rack. This rack is awsome. Extremely heavy duty and 3 points to connect the bike. Much sturdier and stronger than other racks

    Which Yakima? The Frontloader has 3 points of contact as does the Malone.

    Front loader. Back strap broke ( according to the rack shop and others happens alot more than they let you know) bike lifted out of the front and went airborne. Brass knuckles rack mostly metal. Rated to hold a 45 # bike not 30 #. And the front wheel has it own strap also

    Yakima Highroad, rated to 45lbs.

    Can attach with straps or the T-slot channel.

    Super easy load/unload and a tool-less install.

    Best of all, dead silent.

    Best system I've had to date.

    I have a pair of 1up trays. They're the best roof trays I've used.

    I like that the 1up roof rack tray can be added onto the extension lower if you also have a hitch rack.

    Or you can special order just the pieces needed to turn the tray into a hitch rack... obviously it won't fold, but
