Bike Carrier / July 21, 2018 / Avelaine Labrecque
Thats how handy a bicycle rack for cars really is. Not only that they are easy to assemble and mount to the back of your car. If the whole familys into biking then I suggest you try the Yakima Doubledown 5-bike Hitch Mount Rack model. It is sturdy enough to carry 5 bikes while at the same time it allows you to load and unload the rear of your vehicle without having to dismount your bikes. It is even a neat way to declutter your garage from all the bikes lying around. For those with fewer bikes you can opt for the Yakima Doubledown 2-bike Yakima Quickback 3-bike or the Yakima Bighorn 4-bike Rack models.
Roof mounted carriers can be perfect for SUVs that already have crossbars fitted to the roof of such vehicles. They allow the users to set the bike upon the roof of the vehicle and for significantly less cost if racks already exist on the roof of the SUV. Larger SUVs can hold even seven bikes with the help of this installation. Hitch-mounted racks usually cost more than most other racks but are available in a range of sizes to fit securely with vehicles of different dimensions including various models of SUVs. There is quite a large selection of bike racks in the market and choosing the right one for your car can be quite a challenge.
The most important consideration in choosing a bike rack is the safety of your bike car and you. If you are not using the right bike rack you stand the risk of scratching your car damaging your bike and worst be involved in a car mishap. A bike rack will secure your bike in your vehicle similarly as stainless steel bollards will secure your car in a parking lot. The Load to Carry Cycle racks are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. A popular size can carry one or more bikes. First thing you need to do is to determine the number of bikes you will need to carry on the rack.
