There are many ways to transport bikes, from a rooftop system to one that fits in the back of a pickup truck, and from a manual mounted system to one that hitches to the back of cars, trucks, and SUVs. Some SUVs and trucks are equipped with a hitch, which is potentially the best way to transport bikes for those types of automobiles. Roof racks are another option to make it easy to load and unload the bikes for the camping trip.
Rear spare tire racks are a great option for those Jeeps and SUVs that have the spare tire attached to the back of the vehicle. Trucks that have a large bed can also purchase an adapter rack that straps each bike into place. Even a regular car or hatchback that doesn't have a hitch or roof rack can hook the bikes onto the trunk using another kind of system. In fact, no matter what kind of automobile you drive, there's a way to take the bikes with you wherever you decide to go without having to rent a trailer! Because there are so many ways to tow bikes, it's a good idea to get the big picture about each system before you go out and buy one. Otherwise you may find that the system you purchased fits another kind of vehicle.
If you're looking to purchase equipment to take your bikes with you on your next vacation, it's a good idea to do your homework. This will give you an advantage and the appropriate knowledge to help you determine which bike rack to purchase for your auto. There are many options of bike racks that are structured to fit any vehicle including a BMW, Jeep Wrangler or Cherokee, Honda, your minivan, Mini Cooper, Explorer, Subaru Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Lincoln, Liberty, Prius, and Outback.
Once you've decided on a bike rack system that is compatible with your car, contact us for more information about each system, and we will provide you with a number of styles to choose from. Order it from our online store and in no time at all you can be traveling with all your bikes with ease! Each rack comes equipped with all instructions on how to install it properly, and an explanation of how important it is to purchase locks for each one of your bikes. The lock prevents them from being stolen from a rest stop or parkway. Don't waste your time buying a cheap system from Walmart, Target, Sports Authority, or another commercial supercenter. These stores lack the experts who can help to make sure that the system will fit your vehicle and will transport the number of bikes that you're planning on towing. This is extremely important, because sometimes without the proper installation, these systems could easily fail. A broken system can cause an accident, damaging the bikes as they hit the roadway.
Another thing to avoid is purchasing used bike rack systems, especially those that use straps to keep the bike rack attached to the car. These straps can easily wear out or snap, which can also be extremely dangerous. Because of this, it's critical for users to re read the instructions to be sure that proper installation, and then check the straps and other accessories of the system before planning a biking vacation. It is also not a smart idea to create your own homemade PVC bike rack with parts and items from around the home, especially if your vehicles have spoilers, which can make it difficult to properly attach the bikes. This includes adding a DIY extender fork system to try and add more bikes to the rack. While this creates more room for all your bikes, it may not hold up quite the way you'd like it to and is in no way safe for the road.
