That does work. Keep in mind that two identical mountain bikes most likely don't fit between the rails of a Outback. I have a Yakima bars and bike attachments. Width of handle bars + bike attachments will be wider than the subaru rack. This forces one bike to be mounted backwards. In our case my wifes bike is much smaller frame size and the bike handle bars can overlap.
Hint to Subaru: make the roof rack wider!
If you want 4 bikes get long bars! I think I have the 60" bars and they don't extend too far beyond the edge of the car and are within the mirrors.
#88 of 149 Roof cargo options
Aug 22, 2007 (11:38 am)
I'm looking to get a cargo box or basket/bag for my 2006 Outback wagon. Our vehicle has a factory installed rack, and the use would be to add space for luggage, etc as opposed to sporting equipment like a snowboard.
Any and all suggestions, recommendations and warnings would be appreciated.

I had a soft carrier on my Forester. In heavy, sustained rain, it was not water tight. They are the cheapest option, and fold away when you don't need it.
I prefer the new Sears ones, the black aero looking ones.
Also, Yak racks (Yakima) will bolt on with a clamp you can buy.
#90 of 149 XM ready / Sirius install quesion

I have an 07 Legacy sedan that has an XM ready radio. I am a Sirius subscriber and want to install a Sirius receiver in the car. Question is, can I utilize the factory XM-ready radio and integrate Sirius? Is there a Sirius kit that would work? I'd like to be able to do this without using the aux jack.

I'm fairly sure you can't adapt XM for Sirius. You will probably have to use the Aux in feature.
#93 of 149 The iPod FM Transmitter I use in my Outback stinks!

I can't take it anymore. I've tried three different models and they're all terrible. The audio is weak, tinny, totally lacking in low-end, and the static is constant and horrible. It makes my iPod sound like an AM radio.
I have a 2005 Outback 2.5i Ltd with the factory-installed in-dash 6 CD changer. Does anyone know if I can get Subaru or an after-market place to install an aux-in jack? The unit appears to have only three settings (FM, AM and CD) so I'm not sure if it would be possible to patch in an aux-in. Would I have to replace the entire unit? That would cost a lot more than I'm willing to spend.

There is a post on here in the Subaru Crew where someone has listed a mod for the ipod. I beleive it is jazzyengineering.com
A lot of people have used it with great success.
