Either Thule or Yakima, both very good systems. Both pretty much have the same accessories available, the main difference is that Thule uses rectangular load bars, while Yakima has round. Can't go wrong with either. Check out rackattack.com, they have a fitment guide to help you.

I believe our family has two thules, but yakima is also a good brand. How much are you looking to spend if you get brand new? around $250? Is it for a mtn. bike?

yeah the thing is that the BMW Profile 2000 base rack is only $175...but the BMW ski/bike/snowboard attachmentd for the Profile 2000 rack are about $200 and up...way more expensive than attachments for the other brands.

On the other hand the Thule and Yakima base rack are pricey and begin at $250 from what I've been seeing...but their attachment racks are cheaper than the BMW ones.
