Does anyone have any pictures of these non-gm roof racks with a roof basket or cargo carrier installed? Hoping I can see how much room the hardware for these things has when the sunroof is opened? My Thule carrier has 'claws' that wrap around the crossbars that make me concerned about these aftermarket (even Thule) options.

These are $50 right now! I just ordered
Installed mine as well. Crossbars alone, slight wind noise above 65. With radio on it isn’t noticeable. With Thule sidearm, above 65, radio needs to be a little louder. Make sure you install the rubber strips in the open channel on top and bottom, otherwise, it sounds like a rape whistle and is very loud.

How does it look? I just ordered the same thing as you did. Curious to see if it looks good on the TourX

Good for me. I will take a picture with it on there tomorrow. I have the front feet just behind the front dimples. Bar spread is about 30”, max for rack.
Thank you! I appreciate that!

Sorry for the delay. Weather and schedule issues. I just set it up there for the pictures. Bar spread is ~30 3/8” (front inside to rear inside). I am not sure how much a fairing would reduce the noise. Have not ran it with the bike on there yet. The wind isn’t really bothersome at 75 mph. Below 65 it isn’t noticeable.

Greetings. Joining this late. I like the look and just got a white 2019 essence tourx. What are the specs of the bars and the tower accessories?

The link to the crossbars is in post 119. The bike rack is a Thule Sidearm from Buick (used points).
