    The news article refers to an estimated 3-4 hour hike, leaving at 3:30 pm. They should have been back before dark. Is that time estimate correct for that loop?

    They are supposedly rubber coated steel straps. I don't even have locks and have never had the racks stolen. However, when my bike is on the roof, I never leave it for more than a few minutes.
