    HDR pics with Yakima Bike Rack

    Tested out the Yakima Forklift rack on the OEM roof crossbars last weekend. Rock solid! Averaged 22.2mpg to and from the mountain (1 hr each way) with the bikes up top.

    Pics with my phone using the Camera 360 app with Lo HDR mode on, for artistic effect...

    These Yakima Fork Lifts are real nice. I can't believe how solid the bikes are up there, even on bumpy access roads!

    I was on the fence about ordering it when I bought the car but after I saw one in person, I was sold. I ordered it through my local dealer. It integrates with the car well and has very solid construction.

    Yeah, especially when compared to some of the universal fit racks from Thule or Yakima, this one fits perfectly and the aero bars are very quiet. The one advantage the universal fit ones seem to have is that you can have the bars extend beyond the roof and sometimes fit three bikes up there.
