    Wonder how these various racks compared with older designs from Thule/Saris/Yakima? T2 seems like the current best but has flaws that need attention (ask Luc about the T2). T2 still holds the advantage over these new racks in that you can adjust tray positioning more but that same adjustability is one reason for their durability problems. T2 has the locks built into the arms too...
