didnt want to hijack the honda crv thread. I just put a yakima roof rack on my roadmaster (son wrecked my truck and this is what I replaced it with). I have been keeping an eye out for a couple of used yakima raptor or similar rack but when reading the pdf instructions online it says, " DO NOT TRANSPORT BICYCLES WITH attached baby seats, panniers, wheel covers (this would be fenders?), full bike covers or motors." I have fenders on my bike and figured this could be a problem. Anybody have any experience with transporting one on top with fenders. Even if I used a model that required taking the front wheel off the fenders would still be on. It would be a big hassel to remove the fenders everytime I loaded the bike on the car. This will be for the 520. the OCR 3 will not be a problem. Any comments or suggestions?
