bike carrier for saris roof rack

I bought a saris roof rack several years ago and have come to learn that saris no longer sells the roof rack or the bike carrier. Does anyone know if there is some other bike rack that can be attached to this? Or do I need to buy a whole new system?

thanks,
eric

By roof rack, I assume you're talking about load bars? If that's the case, you might be able to find a universal-fit bike carrier that would work with your Saris load bars. I know that Yakima makes several universal styles that are intended to fit a variety of different factory crossbars for different cars, and Thule probably does as well.

EDIT to add link to an example:

That's correct. I have the saris load bars as pictured here:

I will take a look at what yakima has, thanks.
