What Brand of Bike Rack is a Good Fit For Your Car, Truck, or SUV? by:Gary Lindsey
All the various trunk bicycle rack work almost the same way. Most of them strap onto the trunk of a auto and secure your cycle to your car for secure transport. Nothing else to it.
Allen, Thule, Hollywood Racks and a few others have trunk mount bike rack systems that will hold more than one bike and can mount three bikes. This freedom is useful when bicycling as a group and ride sharing.
Some models that I would recommend are the Saris Bones, Hollywood Racks Baja Rack, Allen AL102A and several others. All these trunk-mounted bike rack options are just a starting point.
The Allen AL102A trunk mount bike rack weighs 9.5 pounds, fits on most sedans. The single configuration design makes it easy during set up and installation. The 12" long carry arms easily carries up to two bikes. You'll have it up and running within seconds.
Another well-liked trunk mount bike rack is the Bones Series bicycle rack. The Bones Series by Saris features injection-molded arms and legs. These parts are the most durable on the market and assembled with 100% recyclable, non-rusting material. Ratcheting anti-sway straps secure and stabilize bikes. The novel Arc-based design is compatible with most spoilers and separates bicycles on different levels. Plastic parts on Saris racks are injected during the manufacturing process with a UV stabilizer. Therefore, colors will not fade/crack; additionally fading and cracking are covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Lastly, they come in a few fun colors: blue, red, yellow, and black.
The Yakima King Joe trunk mount bike rack is best. This bike rack for your car comes with a Quick Trigger Hub System which makes for a simple installation process. The trunk mount bicycle rack can work with the broadest range of vehicles of any Yakima strap style rack. Narrow arm design is compatible with a most of bikes. Premium Tri-Padded feet and padded metal buckles protect your cars paint job. The Integrated StableCradles secure bikes in place. The folding arms on the Yakima King Joe make storage easy.
The Baja Rack by Hollywood comes with patented Micro-Adjust hubs which guarantees easy installation. More that 5 straps solidly attach the Baja to the backend of your sedan. Bike separators with anti-sway blocks ensures the bicycles firmly attached to the trunk bike rack. A last point, the rack folds flat for easy storage in a trunk or garage.
