From a very popular bicycling company from Sweden comes a wide variety of Thule bike racks that can help you carry your racing, road or mountain bike around in style no matter what type of vehicle you drive. There are three main types of Thule bike racks on the market: hitch bike racks, roof mounted racks and rear door mounted racks. You can also find racks for use in the beds of pickup trucks and for attaching to vertically mounted spare tires at the rear of a truck or Jeep style vehicle.
Which Thule bike racks should you choose to transport your bicycle?
Hitch Mount Thule Bike Racks – These sturdy and safe structures attached to the hitch of your car or truck. They stick out a bit from the bumper area and then have a bar pointing vertically that allows your bicycles to be clamped on safely.
Roof Mount Thule Bike Racks – Smaller cars without hitches may need to get a roof rack to transport their bicycles. There are different sizes available which can carry one, two or three bikes. People frequently remove the tires before putting a bike frame on their roof.
Rear Door Thule Bike Racks – Even if you do not have a tow hitch on the back of your car, it is possible to carry your bicycles there instead of on the roof. These bike racks connect easily to the rear door or hatch, support up to three bicycles with ease and safety and many fold down flat when not in use.
