bdubyawrote a review of Thule GoalPost on September 29, 2004
This was the perfect solution for my situation, already having a Thule roofrack, but having switched from a car to a pickup (w/bedcover that precludes any rack that uses the bed or the stake holes); needed to carry windsurfers and kayaks. Very easy to install and fit. My only gripe is that the stabilizer straps just have a simple pull-through cam lock with no mechanical reduction, so it's hard to get them really taut; I might replace them with something with a mechanical reduction, (like a trucker's hitch)to reduce the load on the welded L-joint (I've heard rumors that the weld can crack over time from taking all the torque from the load if the straps aren't tight enough). Still, a great piece of gear all in all.
