It's spring 2016, and Yakima has released a new line of roof top base rack systems called the Yakima StreamLine Series which replace the older Q-Tower, Control Tower, and RailGrab systems. In this exciting video, Rack James gives an overview of the Yakima TimberLine system for vehicles with raised side rails, which replaces the Yakima RailGrab system. And if you keep watching, you'll see him do an installation of the Yakima TimberLine system with the JetStream bars on a 2013 Subaru Forester.

Rack James gives the skinny on a fat bike compatible bike rack. The RockyMounts TomaHawk upright style roof-mounted bike rack attaches to most factory and aftermarket roof-mounted crossbars and carries a wide range of bicycle styles, from 20" wheel kids bikes to 29ers and tires up to five inches wide.

Check out the Kuat NV hitch mount bike rack as Rack James gives a thorough overview and demo of this platform style hitch bike rack that fits 2" hitches and carries everything from 20" kids bikes up to 29ers. Loading bikes isn't always easy, but it's as easy as it gets with the Kuat NV-2 bike rack

Come for the bike rack, stay for the cedar hedges. Rack James shows the features of the Thule 527 PaceLine fork-mounted bike rack mounted to the Thule 460R Rapid Podium roof rack system in front of a verdant cedar hedge. The Thule 527 PaceLine is sleek and easy to use, and fits just about any style crossbar.

If you have a naked roof and want crossbars to attach bike racks, kayak racks, cargo boxes, etc, here is an excellent roof-mounted crossbar system option. The Inno XS200 complete base rack system attaches to naked or smooth rooftops and features aerodynamic AeroBase bars that are more efficient and quieter than square or round crossbars. Rack James gives a nice overview along with an installation demonstration.
