Peruzzo Milano 3 Bike Car Rack Information

Brand : Peruzzo

Code : AVR801MAT

The Peruzzo 3 Bike Car Rack offers the versatility to carry up to 3 bikes with a fantastic strap fastening system for maximum safety.

The Peruzzo Milano is a high lift bicycle carrier that avoids the need for lighting boards on most vehicles. Enabling you to carry a load of up to 45kg, the Milano comes fully assembled, including straps ad bicycle hold down, eradicating the need for tools. Its oversized aluminium tubes add to the strength of the car rack, while maintaining a low weight, and the rack can fold down flat for easy storage when not in use. Quick and easy to fit and remove, the Peruzzo Milano adjusts to fit most saloons, estates, hatchbacks, 4x4s and vans, as long as you have no rear spoiler or boot mounted spare wheel.

Need help choosing the best car rack for transporting your bike? We take a look at the four main types and assess the pros and cons, so you can select the best option to suit your needs.

Wouldn't it be great to live at the bottom of an awesome mountain trail, or have the pick of the season's sportive within riding distance of your front door? Sadly, this isn't reality for most of us and sometimes, you just have to use the car. You could put your bike in the boot, but unless you've got a nice big estate car (that you don't mind getting mud- and grease-stained), that's not an option. And once you've factored in the family's bikes, too…it's time to look at car racks. Car racks can make the task of lugging family and friends' wheels around a lot simpler. Below is a guide to help you decide which is the best car rack system for your car.

Option 1: Strap-on Racks

Strap-on racks (also know as rear racks) tend to be the most cost-effective way of loading the car up with bikes. They consist of a frame assembly made from either an alloy or moulded plastic, with strong webbing straps that hook onto the edge of the boot door. These are adjusted and pulled taught to hold the rack in place. The frame itself usually has rubber feet mounted to it to prevent damage to either the window or paint surface of the car. The rack can then be loaded with bikes within the number and weight limit recommended by the manufacturer. They can vary as to how many bikes they carry.

The Pros of Strap-On Racks

  • Highly adjustable – will fit almost any car
  • A strap-on rack is the quickest and most cost-effective way to carry bikes on your car

The Cons of Strap-On Racks

  • If you have a rear spoiler on your car boot door, you need to be cautious about placing a load-bearing strap over it, as the weight of a fully-loaded rack could cause it to break
  • Strap-on rear racks will probably have to be unloaded when you want to open the boot door, as the shift in weight from the bicycles moving as they are tipped could cause them to collide with the car paintwork
  • Bikes are easier to steal
  • When a strap-on rack is fully loaded with bikes, the car number plate could be obstructed, making your vehicle illegal. Some manufacturers make a rack with height adjustment, lifting the bikes clear, but cannot take into account all car designs. A separate light and number plate board may need to be purchased to avoid police attention whilst driving to a family holiday
  • Bikes with a step-through frame (such as the Specialized Ariel ladies bike) may require an adapter to allow them to fit onto the rack. This adapter is a bar that hooks under the steering stem and saddle of the bicycle, creating a virtual cross bar that can rest and be strapped onto the rack

Option 2: Tow Bar Mounted Racks

Tow bar racks, as the name suggests, are designed to fit onto a vehicle's tow bar. They connect either to a standard tow ball, or bolt to the tow ball mounting plate. Tow bar mounted racks typically come fitted with a light board. While all models share the same sort of mounting, they can vary widely in features (and price):

A basic tow bar rack tends to be fitted with a spanner-like tool as another pair of hands holds it steady. The bikes on a basic rack are typically secured in place with webbing straps attached to the bikes and around part of the rack.

Higher-end models tend to be fitted by means of a simple lever mechanism, meaning they can easily be fitted by one person. The bikes are usually held in place with clamps and ratchet straps, making the load more secure.

The Pros of Tow Bar Mounted Racks

  • Simpler to fit, depending on model purchased
  • Better quality and load-carrying abilities than a rear rack
  • Higher-end models have a locking mechanism, to keep your bikes and rack safe from theft
  • Higher models can tilt forward, even when loaded, to give easy access to the boot
  • Less impact on fuel consumption than other types of rack, as they're behind the car and out of the way of the main airflow
  • Most models come with a light board, keeping you within the law

The Cons of Tow Bar Mounted Racks

  • More expensive than a simple rear rack, especially if you don't already have a tow bar fitted
  • Will take more room to store when not in use

Option 3: Roof Racks

If you have a spoiler and no tow bar, then a roof rack could be the way forward. These are bars designed to adapt and fit to almost every car on the market and once you have the roof bars fitted, there is a wide range of equipment that you can fit to them. Bike carriers are available, as well as carriers for skis, kayaks, and roof boxes – just make sure that you order the correct components for your specific model of rack and car. Other options, such as wing bars to improve fuel efficiency by reducing the drag of the roof rack, are also available.

The Pros of Roof Racks

  • Cheaper than having a tow bar fitted to your car
  • Don't hinder access to any part of the car
  • One of the most secure racks available
  • Are versatile and the bars can be used for other applications

The Cons of Roof Racks

  • Not as easy to take on and off as other options
  • If you have a high car such as an MPV, you may struggle to reach onto the top of the car to secure your bike
  • With the cargo out of sight, it can be easy to forget that items are on the roof of the vehicle, which can make height barriers a danger
  • Fuel consumption suffers from the extra air drag

Option 4: Car Racks for 4x4s and People Carriers (MPVs)

The presence of a spare wheel on the rear of many 4×4 cars and people carriers can be an issue when it comes to attaching a car rack. For example, in the case of a rear strap-on rack, the wheel will prevent the rack from resting against the boot door, causing the load to be unstable. Luckily, there are racks that are designed to be mounted to either the mounting bolts for the spare wheel, or to the actual wheel itself. There are also specially-designed tow bar mounted racks for 4x4s, which stand a further distance from the vehicle, allowing the rack to sit behind the spare wheel.
