Attached are photos of the rack mounted with two Thule bike racks. I used some 50 inch Thule crossbars instead of the provided 32 inch crossbars. I can mount three Thule bike racks or two bike racks and a ski rack by going to the longer crossbars. Using the longer crossbars has enabled positioning the two bike racks closer to the outside of the car's roof making the bikes much easier to mount and dismount from the racks. I'm not worried about changing to a longer crossbar because the weight to be carried (usually just two bikes) is still the same. I love the product, but I don't think you can use the photo as the kit comes with the shorter bars. Maybe you could suggest to Thule they provide an option to substitute longer crossbars. 528182

The existing Thule rack was still serving the purpose, but after being transferred across 3 vehicles and almost 20 years of service, was showing it's age (i.e. sun-faded plastics, and surface rust on the square bars) For a terrific price and a 2-day wait, I now have the exact same rack setup...ready for another 20. 370530

The TH532 was able to add years onto my Thule Pelotons. Etrailer came through with the parts necessary to make my older stuff work with my new Subaru Outback. 358116

Works great for a couple of bikes, but I wish Thule provided the option of different bar lengths. 36" would have allowed me to carry my canoe 58765
