Can you put a bike rack on any vehicle?

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 bike rack 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 towbar bike rack, 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 a bike rack – a bit of research into what your car can carry is needed before making a purchase.
