Anyone out there have a bike rack on their B15? I was curious because I'm thinking of getting one soon (since I can't quite get two bikes IN the car). Looking at Yakimas... If you're out there, and you've got pictures, I'd love to see them!

Thanks!

I have Yakama's on my SE. Looks ok but they recommended that i get the q-stretch kit with the racks. the q-stretch kit is supposed to be for coupes but for some reason they said that it was needed to apply the rack on the sentra. i have noticed more wind noise, even with the fairings, but if you need them these racks are the best. i had these rack for about 4 years and there is hardly any rust on them. I surf and am at the beach alot, not to mention that the car is parked outside... i would highly recommend these racks....

I had a Thule system for about 15 years before I bought the Sentra. Since I carry
touring kayaks, I needed more than the 24" of
spread I would have got from the Thule rack, so I bought a Yakima system with the q-stretch kit.

Man! The q-stretch hit is HEAVY, but it is
also very solid, and I now have 34" of spread. I also bought a bike carrier for it. I'll have to snap some pictures when I get a chance.

I bought the fairing, and it eliminated
the humming noise at highway speed, but obviously you're going to hear some wind noise.

The system doesn't look too bad. I don't leave the bike rack, or kayak saddles on when I'm not using them. I did notice a couple of paint chips on the insides of my
doors from hitting the roof clips though.

HTH.
