    Hey Guys --
    Anyone info on Aeroblade Roof Racks?
    Sometimes I haul bicycles, and I put the bike inside the Rear Hatch, fits fine, but takes a toll on my Spine/Back.
    Not sure if it's worth $400.00 plus Add-On Bike Racks, extra $$ for that.
    Comments, suggestions, advice?
    Thanks!

    Couple members here have the standard round bar Yakima including myself and are happy with it. Can't speak to the Thule Aeroblade.

    I've got the Aeroblades and have racks for 3 bikes on top of the car. I'm going to be flipping the middle one backward so that I can have all 3 between the uprights.

    The crossbars don't add any noise or take MPG, but the bike racks take some.

    Any experience with this? Looks Aeroblade way much better.

    I just bought the Thule Aeroblade roof rack system about five months ago and just ended up selling my Prius. Also bought four locks for them as well for added safety against theft. If anyone is interested in buying them send me an email at [email protected].

    Aeroblade should work.
    One of the best racks for Gen2 Prius was Saris...unfort by around 2007 Saris stopped making roof racks. Sometimes you see them for sale here.
