    Im looking to get some thule roof bars and also a 951 cycle carrier.

    However I am unsure if I should get the aluminium aero bars or the standard steel bars. What are the pros and cons of these bars?

    If you could help me I would be grateful, thanks.

    The aero bars look better. You also get fixing bolts with the cycle carrier that slide into a groove along the top of the bar. With the square bars you have to use wraparound brackets. So the aero setup looks a lot cleaner.

    The square bars are cheaper.
