Roof Racks They also make roof bike racks for cars. If you have more than two bikes to carry and are going on a long trip you may want to consider getting the bike racks for the roof. These usually come with hooks and a strap allowing you the ability to strap your bikes down before you travel. The hooks lock through the tires to hold it in place and the straps go around the back wheels. It just all depends on the type you get. There are many different styles when it comes to bike racks for cars. Bikes are good to carry on vacation especially if you are going to a campground or somewhere that has bike trails.
Without one youll be stuck riding locally around your home. With a bike rack though you can go anywhere you want; the possibilities are endless. If you frequently go for family vacations a nice rack will allow you to take the fun activity of riding with you. Even for business trips bike racks will allow you to have fun during those few hours you get off work. Of course the greatest benefit is that you can simply take your bike wherever you want to. Mountains trails and tracks are all great places to take your bike for a spin. All bike racks are built for the purpose to hold one or more bikes but many of them are made differently and function differently.
The second type is what is called the roof mount bike rack. With this rack you will have an unobstructed view of objects in the rear view mirror. Installation will be quite expensive if your vehicle does not come with crossbars or roof rack and because you will need a professional to mount the rack for you. The most durable of the 3 types of bike racks for cars mentioned earlier is the one that is mounted to the trailer hitch of your vehicle. They are built to last since they will travel on the same road that your car travels on plus it solves the problem with height restrictions when you need to park in low ceiling parking lots.
