Choosing the correct bike rack for you and/or family can be a daunting task. I am writing this blog to help you in choosing a bike rack that is affordable and most importantly functional for what you want out of it.
Here are the step by step plan on how to decide:
Step 1: Decide what type of bike rack you would like to own. The choices are: hitch mounted, roof mounted, rear door mounted, spare tire mounted, or truck bed mounted.
Step 2: Gather the following information:
Hitch Size - 1.25" or 2" (if applicable)
Step 3: Visit the following websites to determine what bike racks will fit your vehicle.
Step 4: Write down all the bike racks/systems that interest you.
Step 5: Decide what bike rack is going to suite your lifestyle the best (i.e. roof racks, hitch racks, platform racks, etc.)
Step 6: Come up with a budget on how much you would like to spend.
Step 7: Look to see if your current vehicle has some of the options already to save you money.
Step 8: Narrow your search down to your top 3
Step 9: Research and read reviews on your top 3 bike racks
Step 10: Visit a local bike store to see the bike rack up close
