Can you put one on any vehicle?
Most cycle carriers are universal and tend to fit the majority of vehicles, but it's best to find one that's suited to your car size, shape and requirements. If you already have a set of car roof bars, then the simplest option would be to attach a roof mounted version to your car for quick and easy transportation. If you're already transporting a roof box on your car or don't want to invest in a set of roof bars then a rear mount version may be the most suitable option. These tend to attach to the boot door of your car using clip-on straps. And finally if you have a van or large SUV then it's worth investigating a tow bar mounted version, please note a towbar must be pre-fitted to your vehicle before selection this option. So in short, yes any vehicle has the potential to carry one – a bit of research into what your car can carry is needed before making a purchase.
Can you open the boot with a rack on it?
Nearly all racks are made to ensure your car boot door will open while the rack is in place. It's best to check each product to see whether they can open with bicycles mounted or not. Rear mounted carriers can normally remain attached with the boot door open but without any cycles attached. Towbar mounted carriers normally come with a tilting mechanism that enables you to pull the bike rack forward while still mounted. It's worth checking the product description to understand the specific functional of each carrier before making a decision to purchase.
