ANyone have any 'user' experience with upright roof rack, preferably for 29r?

I just got a LEFTY MTB and cannot stand taking the front wheel off every time i load up the bike.

THanks.

I have a caffeine 29er with the lefty and I use the Yakima high roller. Holds the bike solidly and includes a locking cable.

Thule Side Arm. Works great and is a model of simplicity to use.

Check out the 1-Up. Best hitch rack I've ever used, & now they're making roof rack rigs too: http://1upusa.com/product-rooftray.html

Had my 1up hitch rack for a few years now, works just as well as when I first got it. I expect it will last the rest of my (cycling) life. A truly great product.

The one up looks a bit erector set but it is made in the US so I would go that route.

Woops.....probably should have mentioned that my current setup is Yakima with the round bars. Doubt the THULE option would work? Or would it?

That was the nice thing about buying Rocky Mount tray for my old 29'r. It was universal fit system AND it had the cut-out so my front disk housing would fit.

After just a quick glance at the 1UP (very nice indeed btw) i didn't catch wether or not it would fit with Yakima round bars or not. Anybody know?
