5 Awesome Car Racks To Take Your Bike Anywhere This Summer

   Words by Aaron Scott

   on 01/04/2014 13:54:28

It’s that time of year when people start getting out and about. The clocks have changed and it’s no longer a race back to the car against a setting sun. You’ve got all the time in the world for pedalling through the great outdoors with the the family before heading back to the car to load up and head home. If you’re looking to do more on the bikes this year and you need to travel round with them, you may be looking at car racks. To help you decide which one you need we’ve put together five of the best.


Marty McFly ditched the skate board in favour of BMX

1. Thule Raceway

Thule Raceway

The most versatile strap-on car rack on the market. The Thule Raceway has arms with adjustable width that allows a variety of different frames to be carried. Anti sway cages prevent the bikes from knocking into each other and the body of the car when driving down bumpy roads. The straps operate on a ratchet system that ensures they are held at the correct tension and are lockable ensuring that it stays on your vehicle and, if that wasn’t enough, when it’s not being used it all folds down. Available as a two bike or three bike option.

Buy If - You’ve got a young family and a small car, the sliding arms mean that a child’s bike can fit on the rack and not squeezed into the boot, although this rack is so good it could suit lots of different bike carrying.

2. Saris Bones

Saris Bones

The Saris Bones racks are available as either a two bike or three bike option. The rack secures onto the car using spring buckles which make for easy hooking up. The angle of the rack can be adjusted and the whole body is injection moulded plastic meaning no rust. The clever arch design of the arms mean that if your boot has a spoiler they will go around it. Also available in a variety of colours and with a lifetime warranty.

Buy if - You like simple and no fuss. Not as adjustable as other racks on the market but this doesn’t make them less quality.

3. SeaSucker Talon

SeaSucker Talon

A novel approach to the car on bike problem, suckers. Rubber suckers secure the rack to the car in what has to be the easiest fitting system out there. The Talon holds the bike via quick release at the front and an additional sucker with ratchet for the rear wheel. It’s also the smallest, most portable car rack I think I’ve ever seen.

Buy if – You use different cars to transport your bikes and are short of storage in your garage. Also worth a look if you plan to scale any skyscrapers or pull dents out of your car body work any time soon.

4. Thule Euro Classic

Thule Euro Classic

The Thule Euro classic is the best tow bar mounted car rack out there. The rack is easy fixed with one hand thanks to the closing handle requiring minimum force to close, you can tip the rack, even when loaded to allow easy access to the boot. The Euro Classic comes in a two or three bike option with the three having an optional extension available to increase this to four.

Buy if – You have a large family and carry bikes around regularly.

5. Thule Proride

Thule Proride

Roof racks are a great solution for anyone that doesn't want to fit, or doesn't have a tow bar on their car and the dreaded roof spoiler is preventing you from fitting a strap-on rack. The Thule 591 Proride is a great roof rack designed to fit either a Thule square or wingbar. The Proride can lock to the bar and bike for increased security whilst holding the bike is left to the quick release straps that locate the wheels into the trays and the arm grips the down tube.

Buy if – You haven't got a tow bar but do have a roof spoiler. Also worth checking out the Thule fit guide to see which fittings you need too.

Well there you go. Five car racks to cover everything you need to get away from it all and get on the saddle.
