e90 OEM Base Rack ..which mountain bike holder?

Hey all, my buddy gave me his BMW base rack so I've been searching for a good mountain bike holder to attach to the base rack. Most of the posts I've seen says to get a Thule or Yakima holder, but no model or anything terribly specific.

For you mountain bikers out there with a OEM base rack, which bike holder are you using? and adapters required? I'm planning on using the rack for up to 300 mile trips when I head to the beach this summer.

I like Rocky Mounts, I'm using their Euro PitchFork.

I may go for this... any adapters required or additional modifications?

I don't think so... I'm actually using Thule bars but my PitchForks came with wider nut plates for factory style bars

I use a Thule 599XTR. It's not the most sleek but it works great for a mountain bike. I like not having to take off a muddy tire after a ride. I bought the xadapt 2 to switch from the square bar mount to the channel mount.

Why don't you stick with the OEM mtb attachment? http://www.shopbmwusa.com/ProductDet...cessories.aspx

That was my original thought, but the guy that gave the base rack to me hated them. And I've read a fair amount of less than stellar reviews about them on the forums.

Thanks all for the input, keep'em coming if you've anything to add.
