Trunk Bike Racks
Trunk bike racks tend to be the most affordable option for transporting your bikes, but they are also the most portable and easiest to store when not in use. Trunk racks are designed to be as universal as possible. While they can fit onto the trunk of nearly any car, their wide range of adjustments also make them perfect choices for a hatchback bike rack . Easily adjustable mounting arms on many of the models even open wide enough to provide a perfect fit onto the back of most SUVs and vans as well.
Nearly all trunk-mounted bike racks are secured with adjustable straps. Some brands have alternative models that use high-strength steel cables for a strong grip while eliminating the spider web of straps that can seem to overpower the rear of a vehicle. Most trunk-mounted racks are easy to install with coated hooks that firmly grip the edges of your trunk or hatch without causing damage to the paint job. Even if you need a hatchback bike rack, certain models have coated glass hooks available to still provide a strong hold on your vehicle without damaging the hatch glass. When not carrying any bikes, these trunk bike racks have folding load arms to save space. They are easy to uninstall and fold into a smaller size, so if you are renting, leasing, or borrowing a friend’s car, you will be able to easily transfer your trunk bike rack and store it when not in use.
