    Yakima & EDGE/ENVE Compatibility

    I have a Yakima Steelhead fork mount roof rack. It is fairly old, 15 or so years. Just built up a set of wheels with EDGE AM rims. The rear ratcheting strap is not long enough to clamp the rims, the profile is too deep. Does anyone know if newer versions of the strap (rattler??) is longer and will accommodate a deeper rim profile? If not, are there any after market straps that will work with my rack?? Thank you in advance.

    Deflate your tires?

    Not a Bad

    Idea, but it does require that I have a pump with me at all times.

    How about just using a bungee cord? I'm missing the rear strap on mine rack, and that is what I planning on using.

    Well... We're talking about carrying a bike on a car here. A pump definitely won't take much space in your car.

    I wouldn't do that. What happens if your tire rolls off the rim? What about calling Yakima to see if a longer strap exists?
