I'm a tightwad...

I have two bike trays to mount on the Blubaru's roofrack. I don't feel like spending $170 for the conversion towers, or even $40 x 2 for the Universal Mightymount kits.

Has anyone here engineered from cheap hardware parts a "kit" to allow direct mounting of Yakima (or Thule/Rockymounts, etc.) trays to the stock Forester crossbars?

I get my mightmounts for $9 for 2! That's CDN $ ! Also check out Sportrack for bar adapters http://www.sportrack.com/um-100. They work on Yak, Thule, and factory. I have used them with my 2 bike racks all last year with no problems. They used to have Yak and Thule specific ones that I also have and used extensively without any problems. I think they were $30 CDN for 4.

I get the might mounts from a local wilderness supply company and I ordered the Sportrack parts directly from the manufacturer.
