You need that pants to be fitted first. To choose a perfect rack for your bike to be carried is almost a same issue and is not just so easy. Before purchasing a bicycle rack So before purchasing a bicycle rack you need to think about your budget and judge how many bicycles you need to carry. There are a huge variety of bicycle racks which may be considered by three categories. Roof bike rack: This type requires a roof rack that offers complete access to the trunk and hatch. Trunk bike racks are mounted on the trunk and hatch of the vehicle. Loading-unloading is easy and suitable to store. Hitch bike rack needs hitch receiver.
Also this type of a set up will definitely make it difficult to access a rear hatch or trunk. Truck Bed Bike Rack If you drive a truck why not consider using the bed of the truck for storage and transporting of your bicycles? This type of a rack firmly attaches to the bed of the truck and can carry one or more bikes. This works great as compared to just throwing bikes in the back of the truck. Using this type of a rack protects the bikes from getting damaged or bent. The only real downside to this type of bike storage is that bikes will take up part of the truck bed so you will have less room for the storage of other items if you are taking a trip.
Racks should be built from heavy duty weather & tamper resistant materials. * Attractive designs encourage property owners to install secure parking facilities. What to avoid...These are the main reasons why cyclists will not use some racks:* Damage - If a parking device can damage a bike it wont be used. Some racks so-called wheel benders can damage the wheels or frame of a bike. If a rack will bend a wheel it wont be used.* Security - As many bicycles have quick release front wheels security of the wheel and frame is essential. Do not buy a rack which does not allow for both the wheel and frame to be locked with a U lock.
