As much as you’d probably love riding your bike everywhere, there are times when you’ll need to transport it to your destination. A bike carrier rack is a necessity for riders who take their bikes to races, distant mountain trails or on holiday. If you’re looking for a sturdy, dependable bike rack for car use, you’ve come to the right place. BikeExchange offers hundreds of bike racks for cars in one convenient location.
Car bike racks generally are not “one-size-fits-all” products. It’s important to choose one that fits your vehicle and also meets your transportation requirements. A good way to begin your bike carrier selection process is by chequeing your vehicle’s owner’s manual. You should find important information such as the maximum allowable roof weight and payload limits — you don’t want to overburden your vehicle as this can cause a major safety issue. You’ll also have to consider whether you just need a rack that can accommodate bikes, or whether it must transport other items such as kayaks or skis.
It’s also a good idea to test the rack out, if possible, to ensure the bike fits properly, especially when purchasing boot or hitch racks. It never hurts to have a little extra space left after attaching or storing the bikes and to secure them with a rope or bungee cord as an additional safety precaution.
