Bike Racks

Heading out on your next family vacation and you’d like to bring your bikes along? Or maybe you’d like to hit some trails that are a short road trip away. Whatever your reason, you’re going to need a bike rack.

There are many types of bike racks on the market for your vehicle—roof racks, truck racks and spare tire racks to name a few. So why would you want to choose a hitch bike rack instead of any of the other types? Well, let’s take a look at some of the advantages a hitch bike rack has over the others.


While many types of racks can only carry up to two bikes, most hitch bike racks can carry three to four bikes at one time. This means you bring a bike yourself and three of your friends without even worrying about reaching the hitch’s maximum load capacity.

Vehicle Clearance

Putting bikes on a roof rack requires keeping them in an upright position. This can add several feet to the top of your vehicle, making it a risk to drive under low-clearance obstacles. No worries with taking your bikes in the drive-thru on a hitch bike rack. Having your bike on a hitch bike rack also means loading and unloading is much easier with no lifting over your head.

No Break Down

Unlike roof racks, there is no need to take the front wheel off of your bike in order to secure it on a hitch bike rack. This saves you time and effort as well as the hassle of keeping the wheel in your vehicle.
