If you are cycling away from your house, bike racks will help you transport your bike without having to disassemble it to fit it into your car. At Eurocycles, we carry bike racks from leading brands Saris, Peruzzo and Thules and are happy to help you choose the bicycle rack that will fit your needs. Here is a list of the 3 different types of car racks.
Roof racks allow for easy access to your boot while your bikes are still on the car. They require a proper installation but keep your registration plate clear so you won't require a lighting board.
Rear Mounted Bike Racks
Probably the most popular option, rear mounted car racks don't require any extra installation and are fitted with easily adjustable straps. They are a must have for anybody looking to travel occasionally with their bikes. You can carry up to 4 bikes with them and most of them come with straps to secure your bikes in place on the rack so they don't move an inch while you are driving.
Towbar bike racks
A little more expensive option than the other 2 types, the towbar bicycle racks are perfect if you are frequently going on holidays with your bike or actively cycling all around Ireland and further. On a towbar rack, your bikes are stored relatively low which makes it easy to load or unload and gives you free space on your roof for a roof box. These bicycle racks offers some security too as you can lock your bike to it and the rack to your car and are quite often fitted with a boarding light saving you an extra purchase.
If you are unsure about which bike rack is the best for you or if it will fit your car, just give us a ring and we will be happy to help you.
