Top Bicycle Car Racks

By Tom Tessin

When you're thinking about getting a bicycle rack for your car, there are a few things that you're going to ask yourself before you set out and purchase one. You're going to find that the selection out there is rather large and rather than making a bad purchase, you're going to want to make sure that you're making a good one.

What type of bike rack for car do you want? The first thing that you want to ask yourself is what kind of rack that you want. You can choose from many different types. You have roof, hitch, trunk, spare tire, as well as a truck bed mount. The hitch mount is generally the most popular mount as its very easy to connect and don't cost an arm and leg.

How many bikes do you want to hook up? Your typical rack is going to hold up to 2 bikes. If you want more, you can get a rack that can hold up to 4. While these are rare, many people just plan on holding 2. Sure, you can get one for just one bike, but you may want that extra space for the near future.

Now, those are really the only questions you have to ask yourself. You're also going to want to make sure that you're getting one that's worth the money. On top of that, you're going to want to make sure that you're getting one that has decent reviews online. By having good reviews, you can trust that other people out there are having luck with theirs. If the review is good, you might as well try it too.

With so many brands out there, you can choose from name brands such as Hollywood racks, Topeak, Thule, and more. They all vary in shapes and sizes.
