A car bicycle carrier, also known as a bike rack, is a device that allows you to transport bicycles on the back or roof of your car.
There are various types of car bicycle carriers available, but the most common designs include hitch-mounted carriers, trunk-mounted carriers, and roof-mounted carriers.
Hitch-mounted carriers attach to the trailer hitch of your vehicle and can carry one or more bicycles. They are generally easy to install and can accommodate different types of bicycles, including those with non-standard frames.
Trunk-mounted carriers attach to the trunk or hatchback of your car using straps, hooks or a support frame. They can usually carry two or three bicycles and are relatively easy to install and remove.
Roof-mounted carriers attach to the crossbars on the roof of your car and can carry one or more bicycles. They are a good option for larger vehicles or for carrying multiple bikes, but they can be more difficult to install and may require additional equipment like roof racks or crossbars.
Car bicycle carriers typically have adjustable features to fit different bike sizes and styles, and can be secured with locks to prevent theft. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation and weight limits to ensure safe and secure transport of your bicycles.
