Anyone planning on installing a roof rack on their ST? I'm disappointed that Ford didn't offer a factory roof rack optionl
I own a Yakima rack today and one thing I dislike about it is the round cross-bars, which allow my wheel-holder (for a single front wheel) to rotate around the bar. It's not a terrible thing, but holder ends up rotating until the bicycle tire makes contact with the roof of the car. Because of this, I end up just putting the bike on the rack and stuff the front wheels in the trunk. Knowing this now, I might look more closely at Thule, given their rectangular cross-bars.I'd also like to install a roof rack for snowboards. Any suggestions on Thule vs Yakima? I'd like something that can be easily removed for track days
I have seen off-center tow hooks that are designed primarily for track day cars so they can be quickly towed out of the way in case they break down. I'd imagine these off-center mounts could be modified for a bike rack, but the strap on mounts that go around your hatch door would probably be a lot cheaper and easier.The configuration of the exhaust (centered at bumper) rules out a hitch-mount w/o extensive exhaust mods.
