|I have a Saris three bike rack. My wife and daughter's bikes won't work on the rack without a special attachment.
Any ideas before I plunk down $55 for two of these specialized bars. Any home-made ideas???

|I have seen rope used in lieu of the bars. I wouldn't do it that way but it seemed to be working at the time.
What is more expensive? $55 or losing your wife's bike on the interstate and having to listen to her cry about it all weekend? Actually, you'd be off on your bike so I guess you wouldnt hear her too much...

|You should be able to beat that price at a LBS, I got the equivalent of the bar for $20.|

|My LBS want $30 for each cross bar but wouldn't have them in stock for a week. Problem is: I leave on vacation with the bikes on Saturday.
I bought them from performance. Better than dropping the bikes on the highway at 70mph. Paul
