    Did Saris stop making roof racks?

    I just took a look at the Saris website ( http://www.saris.com/t-SarisRacks.aspx?skinid=1 ) and they only have links for trunk, trailer and bed racks. Has anyone heard about them nixing their roof rack development?
    I wanted a Saris roof rack for my new Jetta.

    Guess I'll have to give Thule or Yakima a second look.

    Based on the amount of interest people have had in this thread I can understand why Saris has dropped their roof rack line.

    So far I'm leaning toward Yakima but then again I might just go with the factory v-dub rack.

    We had a discussion about this the other week, apparently it's under some stupid category, search the Toronto Fixed thread...

    Yes, unfortunately they're no longer available. Too bad... I really think they had the best of the roof-mounted options.

    Thanks for the info guys.
    It truly is a shame.
