Bike Carrier / July 21, 2018 / Belda Beaudoin
SUV and truck drivers may not be aware that they can have an option for a car bike rack attached to their vehicle. All they need is a receiver a receiver rack rather than letting their bikes ride at the back of their SUV and truck. This particular rack will perfectly fit their car and will keep the bike safe. Without a car rack you will find out that your bike is more susceptible to damage. This is because without SUV racks your bike becomes unstable at the back of your vehicle. This will perhaps cause scratches dents and dings to both your vehicle and your bicycle. This will be a serious thing for you to deal with. In SUVs it is very irritating to fold the seats whenever you like to load up your bike. For this reason it is very important that you look into a receive car bike for your SUV. In fact you can put a receiver bike rack on the receiver hitch of your SUV.
The three main types into which the bike racks generally fall are the strap-on trunk rack hitch mount rack and the roof rack. Each of these categories of bicycle racks has their own unique set of advantages and disadvantages for the users. Some of the bike racks have specific modifications to make them suitable for use inside SUVs or other such cars of greater dimensions. The strap-on racks are among the least expensive among such racks and fit for attachment to the back bumper of the car. However these bike racks have the greatest probability of causing damage to both the vehicles and the bikes compared to other types of racks.
Most of these hitch bike racks can hold a single cycle to up to four bikes. Minor assembly is required on various models. If you have a hitch-mount on your vehicle and need to carry several bikes then a sturdy hitch-mounted rack by Allen may be the way to go. For vehicles like jeeps and SUVs Allen Sports makes special bike carriers that are spare tire mounted. The good thing with these is that your bike is carried quite high. This increases its distance from the road and exhaust pipe. This is a good thing. As with the others these come assembled which is nice.
