Speaking of protection a bike that is transported from the rear will also not be damaged when the driver forgets the bike is on the roof and drives into a low ceiling garage. The best benefit of a hitch mount bike rack is the money it will save you on gas. A bike on a roof rack creates drag and cuts down on your gas mileage. A rear transported bike will not create the same kind of drag. If you have more than one bike there are versions of hitch bike racks that can accommodate up to 5 bicycles. Finally the ease of taking the bike on and off is very quick and you do not have to remove the tires-so you are ready to get cycling faster once at your destination.
