Re: New Accessories available

I specifically wanted the rails rather than the bars - I just prefer the look of them.
I use a 'vacu-rack' device (basically, a set of four dent pullers but specially made to act as a roof rack) which attaches by suction pads to the roof, by placing these alongside the rails & can sit lengths of wood on them & strap to the rails alongside, so keeping the height down.
I also feel that the rails would create less drag than cross bars - even shaped ones.
I agree that the ends could have been better sculpted though.

Re: New Accessories available

It is quite a shame about the ends.

Only other question I can think of is do you think they would support the cross bars (the type that clamp onto longitudinal bars you have) and a load?

Halfords do a pair of cross bars for 35 that clamp onto existing rails, or at least we used to

Still they serve their purpose of looking nice

I imagine they would support quite a load as they felt quite 'meaty'. Being quadrant section I imagine it won't be easy to find cross bars to fit - others I have seen tend to be round or oval section.
Bolted either end & the central support pressing onto a fixing point, I'm not sure how much weight the combined fixing points can handle but I reckon you'd get plenty on.
