Choose by Mount Location

When looking to make a purchase it’s firstly important to know how you want to transport your bikes. There are typically three mount locations you need to consider when researching and each are dependent on how your vehicle is currently built or setup.

Roof Mounted Bike Racks

Roof Mounted

Carrying bikes on the top of your vehicle is a popular method for MTB riders and those that still want quick access to their boot when on the road. Each holder attaches to a set of car roof bars so make sure you have a pair to accompany them.

Rear Mounted Bike Racks

Rear Mounted

Rear racks typically attach themselves to the boot of a vehicle and are secured with straps around the boot door frame. Bicycles are then hung on the back for easy lift on/off attachment. They are generally ready to use straight from the box.

Towbar Mounted Bike Racks

Towbar Mounted

An ideal option for those that have a towbar fitted. The benefits include being able to carry multiple bikes and most fold down by 90° to give you easy access to the boot of your car, even with the bikes still attached.

Can you put a cycle rack on any vehicle?

Most racks 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 roof bars, then the simplest option would be to attach a roof mounted version 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 mounted option may be the most suitable. These tend to attach to your boot door using clip-on straps. And finally, if you have a van or large SUV then it could be worth investigating a towbar solution, please note a towbar must be pre-fitted before selection this option. So in short, yes any vehicle has the potential to carry one – a bit of research into carrying limits is needed before making a purchase.

Can you open the boot door when carrying bikes?

Nearly all carriers are made to ensure your boot door will open while in place. It's best to check each specific product to see whether they can open with actual bicycles mounted or not. Rear mounts can normally remain attached with the boot door open but without any cycles attached. Towbar mounts normally come with a tilting mechanism that enables you to pull the system forward while still mounted. It's worth checking the product description to understand the specific functionality of each item before deciding to purchase.
