    Try there for what system you want to get. I have a Thule roof rack and love it. They are a little pricey (but any quality roof rack will be), but well worth it (I've moved two love seat sized couches on top of my car with it.)

    It'll be much more useful than just to tote around your bike. But it'll do that very well too. I love my 589 Velo Vice bike rack, just make sure you adjust it before driving away with your bike on top the first time...I didn't and ended up dropping the bike on the rack and the pedal hit the roof, slightly denting it. But has worked flawlessly since then..

    If you want to buy one, go here: http://www.ageebike.com/thule.htm

    They have the best price online, and if you're not in PA, you don't pay sales tax.

    You'd need the rack (400xt Aero Foot Pack, LB50 Load Bars and the 206 fit kit ) and the bike rack (your choice in style, they offer several options. I prefer the fork mount personally http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/prod...id=22&sku=589).

    Take a look, this is what you'd need: http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/fg_c...ption_number=1

    But Agee.com will have it significantly cheaper than ordering it through Thule. And you can get locks to make sure no one steals your rack or bike (well..it'll help them to not want to steal the bike). And you can add other stuff, like ski racks, or a fairing to cut down wind noise, etc. I absolutely love mine.

    Looks like if you got the rack, bike carrier, fairing and locks from Thule, it would cost you $450, if you get it through Agee, it would cost $340. Both are before shipping and taxes.
