What experts liked
The CyclingDeal Alloy Roof Bike Rack is an excellent option if you’re looking to purchase a roof-based bike carrying system. It’s robust, light, and easy to install. That means you can easily remove it and keep it in your garage or car boot when not in use. You can also design your own locking system and keep the rack on your vehicle.

What experts didn't like
However, if you find the lack of a locking system inconvenient, or having to lift your bike up high, you’ll need to consider a different option for carrying your bike.

An Overview On Bike Racks (Non-Hitch)

When you are ready to pack up and head out of town, you want to be confident about the bike rack you’ve attached your bikes to for the drive. With countless bike racks on the market, it is not always easy to know which are the best fit for you. It may take some digging but with a few things to keep in mind and a good review of each rack, you’ll surely be able to find a rack that is a good fit for you.

There are several key things that you must know in order to buy the right bike rack. There are three main types of bike racks: roof racks, hitch racks and trunk racks. You will want to decide what will work best with your vehicle. Then consider the type of bikes you have. Most racks will note how much weight they can handle so be sure to opt for a heftier rack if you have heavy bikes. The size of your tires is another thing to check. Last of all you need to know how many bikes you’ll be hauling on the rack. All of these factors will help you determine the bike rack you need for your vehicle.

Of course, you will always have a budget in mind when you are buying a bike rack. They can range anywhere from low hundreds to over a thousand dollars. When you want to keep a reasonable budget, you’ll most likely turn to the trunk racks. This type is usually the most affordable and will get the job done.

If you are only transporting one bike, you can easily find a trunk bike rack for that. The YAKIMA FrontLoader Wheel-On Mount Upright Bike Rack is a perfect option for an individual bike rack. It is fit for most vehicles that do not have rear spoilers and offers easy installation. For a two-bike rack, you’ll want to take a look at the Allen Sports Trunk Mounted Bike Rack, 2-Bike. The larger Thule 3-Bike Gateway Pro Trunk Bike Rack is ideal for three bikes in transit.

There is another type of modern racks designed for trucks. These tailgate pads are a cushy pad that drapes over the tailgate and features a massive web that contains and locks the front tires in place against the tailgate. You can haul several bikes at once with this system.

DWYM Fun Fact

In the mid-1970s, the first bike porter rack was invented by a U.S. manufacturing company. The product was so versatile it could fit on top of a car or strap to the trunk of a vehicle. The Graber Bicycle Racks company was born from the product and since then the company strives to maintain a product that is entirely made in the U.S.

The Bike Rack (Non-Hitch) Buying Guide
