    So several people say the 48" round bars are too short to fit the bicycle rack on the outer edge of the rack (with bike rack straddling the vertical support) - and others say you can cut the 58" round bars down as they are a bit long... but how long can you cut down the 58" bars and still get...

    I am in the process of purchasing a used '07 element and am looking for feedback on yakima racks - does anyone have input on the different types of bars (round vs. more aerodynamic), towers, etc.? I have a rack system already so am wondering if it's worth re-using some of the parts I already...

  4. Greetings & Introductions
    Hi all, I've been an EOC member for about a year now, have responded to a few posts, shared a few photos, but had yet to make any kind of personal introduction until now. Shopping for a different kind of vehicle was initiated last year when we got news of a baby on the way. At the time, I...

    I purchased a 2004 Element and got a great deal - the only issue with the vehicle was that the roof rack cross bars are missing. It has never really posed a problem until now. I am moving across the country and would like to utilize the roof rack. Does anyone know where I can purchase cross...

    I just got a sweet deal on Landing Pads (#9) and control towers for $90... they threw in a set of 48" bars as well. I know that the yakima site says its recommended 58" but I'd like to run the free ones until Im able to source some 58s cheaply. Could someone with a yakima setup measure and...

    I thought I would share this with anyone who might have the same problem I had. I have had my Yakima roof rack for several years now and the plastic pieces don’t always look that great. I am constantly applying Mother Back to Black to the Landing Pads and Control Towers to shine them up...

    I have a 2009 Element with factory rack with factory crossbars ( not round) I have a Yakima STEELHEAD fork mount bike tray- with a ROUND fit on front How can I mount this tray on my factory crossbars? Will 23H Mighty Mounts do the trick? Thanks

    Hi, I've got a dilemma...I bought a set of Thule feet and crossbars and now I want the capability to haul cargo up there, but I don't want to spend $400-$500 if I can avoid it. I bought a Thule Quest cargo bag from Target yesterday ($69) but it's about 12 inches longer than the span between the...

    The kayak racks are on and the Element no longer looks naked. From the '97 CR-V to the '05 Subaru Outback I just had to change the towers. From the Outback to the '08 Element the only thing I could still use are the Land Shark kayak saddles. 8)
  12. Exterior
    Greetings. I have a 2003 E with the Yakima rack already installed with crossbars. I'm looking for a rack that is long enough to provide support for a 24 foot extension ladder (collapses to 12 feet). Any suggestions? Other than Gobi ($1500 - haha). I'm willing to lose the Yakima system. I carried...
