Bike Racks Let You Extend Your Adventures

Not everyone is lucky enough to have ideal conditions for their favorite cycling adventure. Plus, sometimes, you want to take your bike and gear with you on vacation. That's when a bike rack comes in handy. They let you haul your bike gear while keeping your indoor space free.

You'll want to keep some things in mind when choosing a bike rack:

  1. What do you need to carry, and how much do you need to take?
  2. What year, make, and the model vehicle must the bike rack fit?
  3. How is your vehicle outfitted currently?

The good news is you have multiple styles of bike car racks to fit your needs. You can select from removable, hitch, and rooftop versions.

Removable Rear Mount Bike Racks

Rear mount bike racks are the ones that attach to the back of cars with straps and hooks, intended for a shorter distance, infrequent travel. Once installed, it’s best not to open the trunk/hatch. However, you should remove these racks between uses. 

This style of bike rack requires, for example, specific attachment points to attach the hooks. Typically, there are two straps on the top of the trunk lid, two on the sides and two on the bottom.

Rear bike racks don’t fit every car, but they fit many of them. So, to see if your car is an approved fit for this rack style, you can check the rack manufacturer’s website. If your car does not accept a rear bike rack, there are always hitch and roof rack options.

Hitch Bike Racks Carry Up to Five Bikes

a hitch bike rack plugs into receiver hitches on any car with a hitch installed. As result, even if your vehicle did not come with a hitch from the manufacturer, they install easily. 

Once you have a hitch, you’ll be able to choose from a myriad of bike racks for two, three, four, or even five bikes! In addition, there are hang-style racks that hold the bike by the top tube and platform-style racks that support the bike’s wheels and don’t touch the frame.

There are lighter bike racks for two or three bikes, heavy-duty racks to carry electric bikes, and everything in between. Plus, one of the long-term benefits of buying a hitch-mounted rack is that as long as you have a hitch on future cars, you’ll never need to buy another bike rack! Just keep moving the hitch rack from car to car, for example.

If you’re carrying an electric bike, you’ll want to specify that so we can assist you with finding a rack that can support the additional weight. 

Roof Bike Racks Offer Maximum Flexibility

Roof bike racks make the most sense when you want to carry items for different sports (bikes, kayaks, canoes, skis, etc.) or cargo boxes for storage. But roof bike racks will be the priciest, though most versatile, option. We’ll help you sort through the options to find the correct parts to fit your car, as they are specific to the vehicle.

Seasucker bike racks work on cars typically hard to fit with rear, hitch, or roof options. So, these racks use industrial-strength suction cups to secure the bike to the car. In addition, they have been tested and used for years, working incredibly well. You can hold one, two, or even three cycles on most cars.

Our staff is professionally trained by Thule, Kuat,  Seasucker, and Saris to ensure the best installation possible of your bike rack!
