    Hi All,

    I'm looking for suggestions/reccomendations for a roof rack system that will
    hold two or more mtn bikes on top of my '02 Outback.

    I would like to use something that would mate up with the factory luggage
    rack if possible.

    I know that Subaru makes one but $300 seems a little steep for what amounts
    to two bars.

    Are there any aftermarket alternatives by Thule, Yakima, or others that will
    do the same thing?

    Thanks in advance,

    The Subaru towers that attach to the luggage rack work with Yakima round
    bars and bike carriers (e.g., Steelheads).

    I am using a Thule Bigmouth - which is perfect for my mountain and
    road bikes.

    I would also SERIOUSLY consider Sportsworks racks - as they can handle
    any strange frames. I just bought a Cannondale Raven and the frame is
    a bit of a problem on the Bigmouth . They are also cheaper than Thule!
    Had I found this before I bought the Thule, I would have bought it!
