my car is a 2006 mazda 3 hb (has the 4 points on top for rack mountings)
i have fenders on all my bikes, and as a result am finding it diffiult to locate a suitable roof rack in which the stabilizing arm wont' interfere with my fenders
(my touring bike also has lowrider tubus ergo front rack)
seems one that may work is the thule 594xt sidearm...any others one can recommend?
i do like the idea of roof mount given i also ski alot too
however i read that that fenders can break or crack when on roof mounted racks due to hitting higher winds at faster the highway speeds (???)
i'm wondering if going 'hitch' is the better, easier way so am now looking at the
thule helium 970xt 2 bike hitch rack)
also considering newer platform hitch racks as from sportrack below
as well at the yakima stickup
regardless it can get $$$, once you start to enter the 'rack' zone.
thoughts, suggestions, please?
