Choosing the right bike rack
Advantages of the tailgate bike carrier
The tailgate bike rack is surely the most used way to transport your bike in the car. If your vehicle is not equipped with a hitching system, this is the most suitable solution for transporting several bikes serenely thanks to its strap attachment system. This system offers several advantages, in particular the ease of access to the bicycles which are found at the rear of the vehicle, the lower fuel consumption of the vehicle in relation to the aerodynamics of the latter, because the bicycles placed at the rear and n oppose no resistance to the wind.
Transport your bike on the boot
For a bike carrier on the trunk, the choice must be adapted to the type of vehicle, in fact the assembly is not the same depending on whether it is a compact vehicle, sedan, 4x4. Depending on the rack chosen, it can carry 1 or 4 bikes. It is essential to check that the carrying capacity of the bicycle carrier is adapted to the weight of the bicycles transported. If your vehicle is not suitable for tailgate installation, we offer tow ball and roof rack bike carriers.
Bike carrier on hitch ball
The hitch bike rack is to be fixed directly on the car equipped with a hitch ball. It is possible to transport 1 to 4 bikes depending on the weight and size of the bike. Do you have an electric bike? This bike support system will be perfect, indeed this type of support can support loads up to 70 kg!
Tilting bike rack
This solution is very advantageous, it allows you free access to your trunk while keeping your bikes suspended.
Hitch, e-bike compatibility
When you choose an E-BIKE approved bike rack, it means that the spacing between the rails is large enough to accommodate electric bikes. Indeed, e-bikes being equipped with a battery, if the spacing between the rails is not sufficient, you will know that it is impossible to transport them. LVR Cycles advises you to prefer a bicycle transport solution that can accommodate 3 bicycles, this will allow you to easily transport your electric bicycles.
Which roof bike carrier to choose?
Less expensive than other types of bicycle transport, this one offers the possibility of being able to open your trunk without constraint. However, the fuel consumption of the vehicle will be impacted because of the wind catch of the bicycles on the roof. To be able to install this type of bike rack on your vehicle, it is essential to have a vehicle with roof bars or to install them.
