just purchased my 2007 subaru forester and i am looking for a roof rack for my snowboards, however i want one that just fits the stock roof rack, i know they exist... anyone have any experience with these types of racks? any recommendations?
I have Thule kayak carriers that fit directly to my aero crossbars. They mount by placing them on top of the crossbar and securing them with 2 bolts that tighten with a wing nut (well it's different than a wing nut, but I cant remember exastly what they are called) either ewy they tighten by hand. When the 2 fasteners are tightened they pinch the crossbar in between the kayak mount and a coated piece of metal that goes diagnolly from bolt to bolt. They are securewith kayaks on the roof going down the highway, so im sure if the snowboard carriers use the same mounting set up that will do just fine.
