'tude with Aero Blades
Not a one person job to put on cross bars! Additionally, I find it ridiculous that I have to pay Thule $14 for longer screws to put on my snowboard carrier to fit around my blades.

Looks good. How are those aero blades? Any noise? I'm split b/t Yakima and Thule.

I have a set of Thule Aeroblades on mine. I was very impressed at how little wind noise there was after the install. I checked inside cabin noise level with a little iPhone dB meter before and after at highway speeds and the net change was no more than 2dB. I have since added kayak J cradles which do in fact contribute to wind noise but I am still surprised at how little. Here's an earlier post with pics of my Thule rack.

Thanks for the info CollegeBoy. All reviews for both brands' versions seem to be real good. Gotta find a tie-breaker and it might be that Yakima offers an HD variant which may be very handy with things like lumber.

When I vent my sunroof there's a whistle. Goes away when I open the sunroof. Now that I have Thule snowboard rack, there was more wind noise and that's expected.
