Bike Rack / July 19, 2018 / Avelaine Labrecque
This type of rack also has several types but in general serves the same purpose and that is for parking and safety purposes. It is intended to help bikers that go to public places like malls and parks to have their own parking space and to keep their bikes safe from theft. The last type of rack is the car bike rack. This type of rack is intended to securely hold the bike while traveling. It may be found on the front or at the back of the car. Sometimes this type of rack is also placed on top of vehicles. Different racks are important to any type of bike enthusiast. They are necessary in keeping your bikes safe and positioned securely whether at home outside or travelling.
Tip 2: How many bikes will you usually be carrying with your bike rack? You might find a great deal on a 2-bike rack which would be perfect for you and a friend. But suppose you have a group of friends or a family and you want to carry 4 bikes on the rack? Likewise a great deal on a 4- or 6-bike (theyre HUGE!) rack isnt very "great" if you will never need to carry that many bikes. A bike rack thats too big can be cumbersome and nearly useless.
Some trunk racks come pre-assemble which is ideal. There are many parts that come with car racks for bikes and having to not have to assemble the unit is great. Also you need to consider whether you can store the bike carrier in your trunk while not in use or is there a secure and safe way to leave it on. Being able to leave your bikes on the rack while attached to your trunk is also something to think about. After or before you go cycling you may want to stop for some food or a drink and taking your bicycles off the rack to lock them off is just a hassle. So many bike racks now come with locks or some sort of locking mechanism so that your expensive bikes are safe from theft.
