There you go! The Yakima rack is the same one sold by all Scion dealers. It fits well and works really well. I've sold several to all the snowboarders and even one couple who wanted to put this big tricycle thing up there.
It's a great system because the towers are designed just for this car and then everything else is universal and that REALLY cuts down on costs. Also, they are removable without damage to the car (if installed properly, of course).
yep i worked at a bike shop for 3 and a half years and we sold yakima. i wouldn't use anything else for a roof rack. although some bikes aren't compatable with some of the racks they have. i.e. downhill bike with fat tires and some bmx bikes with oversized crank arms. i had this problem with my gt overdrive cranks. spend 400 on cranks to realize it wouldn't fit in the roof rack! lol
I have the same set up. I went to www.racksolid.com. I got my set up for a stellar deal. Rather than give Sport Challet my money I wanted to give my money to a smaller company that can use my money and not rip me off.
Well, frankly i know lotsa people are all big on yakima. I've always liked Thule WAY more. It's more aerodymanic & amazingly rugged. I do like the new Yakima sprocket rocket rails though. So, My tax returns will be partially spent on...Thule permanent (yes I'm planning on keeping this car so I'm drilling and permanently mounting) roof rack, with Yakima Sprocket Rocket rails.
