Finally got a picture up.
If you are tall, 6+feet, this is no problem.

C-13,

Nice pic - & nice looking neighborhood. So different from Calif! Did you buy the factory cross bars? I stopped by a shop last week to look at Thule & the other major name brand (can't recall) & was reminded that our roof rails have the limited front to rear grab points. Using the factory cross rails + and adaptor will solve that problem, but put the overall rack higher in the air.

I need to make room for my mtn bike plus one kayak.

Thx Copper..,

That looks like it would work for me. Ideally, I'd like to have a cross-rail that slightly extends beyond the width of the rack to give me more room to tie down my kayak laying flat (inverted).

I know what you mean, I'd love a more versatile rook system.
Automakers should consult with rack companies (Thule or Yakima) to maximize
roof mount potential.

At least I have my bikes on the roof again :blob:, can't stand the hitch mount stuff.
