I have a two-year old who loves his Camelbak and I know how irritating leaks can be. BC.com does not seem to carry a replacement bite valve for the kid's bottles. I did see one at another website (Dick's, item# 3959341), but after shipping you may as well buy a whole new bottle. Kids love to chew on those...

Well Ryan, if they are no longer sold retail then your best bet is somewhere like Ebay or even used somewhere like Craigslist. You may also try contacting Yakima and asking them if a different clip would work.

Three weeks by foot and pedal through Europe and this pack rocked. The main compartment has plenty of places to keep travel documents, etc. Hydration compatibility means I do not get thirsty. GREAT padding on shoulders and waist, I was never sore from carrying this pack. PLUS, it meets current carry-on standards so I never had to check it as luggage, which is ideal for someone who wants to hit the ground running!

Sturdy, stable, and secure. This box stores enough for my family of four to go camping, visit family during Christmas (extra toys to bring home), and keep our skis if needed. Easy handling does take two people, but I have installed it alone. If you do not have a fairing and are concerned about wind noise, don't be. I have driving a several thousand miles with the just the box and never heard anything. I recommend getting the wall mount for storage while not on the car, it frees up a lot of room and looks killer, too.

After four years of heavy use: XC, downhill and such, these pedals are dying. One the wings are breaking at the same weld on both pedals (see photos). I am curious if others have seen this same failure and if four years is a good stretch for the Egg Beaters.
I really like the four sided entry and my cleat never released unintentionally. They are comfortable and look great.
Buy them, you'll love them too!

The fact that this rack comes from the factory compatible with both an 1.25" and 2" receiver is great. Sharing between two cars with different sized receivers is a non-issue, just use or remove the provided adapter and install.
I have had three bikes back there cruising down the interstate around 80 and they did just fine. Rough roads were not a problem either, this rack is very solid.
The added deadlock gives me piece of mind that the rack and bikes are safe from nasty thieves. Sure, part of the rack could be jacked, but what good would that do anyone? I am not worried.
The forks drop down when not in use and the entire racks folds down for simple access to truck, hatch, etc.
In summary, this rack is safe, solid, and looks darn fine on the back of any vehicle.

Well Mike, the best bet would be to send Yakima a note to be notified once the fit is determined. You can do this from their website in what would be step 2 of 'Fit My Car'. Given that Yakima makes custom fits to ech year/make/model, it may take a while...
