Honda roofbars - a query

Before I take the plunge and pay over the odds for a set of the OEM bars I have a question for other forum members that have these. First of all I'd like to know the actual cross sectional size of these (width x height). Also, am I right to assume that these roofbars use T bar attachments for accessories and if so what size are they? 20mm or 24mm are the two sizes that have been described to me as standard. I need to know if they will fit some rack specific adapters for a tandem bike rack that I need to keep in use.

I already have a Honda specific set of Thule roof bars (for the 2012 Civic) but I have lost confidence in these as they do not fit properly - I have persevered with them but without success. One foot came off on the M4 last summer while carrying two bikes; fortunately spotted by another driver so no harm done. It is a pity because I have had Thules for over 20 years and no problems with them on the last two Civics.

the Honda oem bars are made by thule but they are the thule aero bars these are the alloy ones with the t track in the top of them I have these for my 8g and I use a mont blanc barricuda bike carrier which fits to these and never had any problems and also have a 3/4 size roof box which also uses the t track system to fit to the bars.hope this helps

Thanks for posting that - I've not seen it before. Sadly, it appears not to offer any sizing or compatibility information - the brick wall I have been bouncing off for some days now. I have a query out with a dealer at present but I am not holding out much hope.

Thanks again for the information.
