Bike Racks

Bike racks are an aftermarket accessory,which are attached to a vehicle, in order to transport bicycles. Since bikes are so large and abnormal in shape, they can be very difficult to store inside of a vehicle for transportation. To accommodate this problem, racks can be purchased which attach to the hitch receiver or on the roof rack. These bike mounts which have the ability to attach to these places on the vehicle are normally made out of aluminum or steel tubing which is connected to the roof rack or hitch receiver with mounts. The bike is secured to the tubing with specially designed mounts and rope which wraps around the bike to hold it securely in place. These mounts and rope are designed to keep the bike easily accessible so that it doesn’t take forever to remove from the carrier. Choosing a bike carrier that is right for your specific vehicle is also very important. Larger vehicles such as vans and SUVs’ should use a hitch carrier because a roof mounted bike rack can cause clearance issues when pulling into the garage or going under bridges because the vehicle is already so high.
