All - I've got a 2011 Outback, I need to get a few bike trays. Not sure if it will be Yakima or Thule, but, leaning a bit toward Yakima.

Anyway, how many bikes can we fit on the roof with the stock load bars? I was wondering if we might be able to get 3 (two forward facing with a rear facing in the middle)? Or, would I need to get a wider crossbar to support three bikes?

Thanks for the help,
Mark

You can fit 3, but the stock cross bars are absolutely terrible... Mine were so flexy that the rack hit my roof when I was pulling into a driveway at an angle. I use the Yakima Frontloader. Super easy to take on and off, but still super secure when paired with the locking cores.
