Carrying number

When buying a bike rack carrier, you must first clarify the number of bicycles that you often carry. If there is only one or most of the time there is only one, the best choice is still the overhead bike rack carrier, which is the recognized, professional and safe way of carrying bicycles so far. If you need to carry 2~3 bicycles at the same time, you can have a variety of options. The professional and fashionable approach is still to install a top-mounted bike rack carrier, two bike rack carriers can be installed with two bicycles, and three bike rack carriers can be installed with three bicycles. The back-type bike rack carrier fixed on the rear door can generally carry 2 or 3 bicycles at the same time depending on the model. At this time, the overall cost is cheaper than the overhead solution, and the cost-effectiveness is relatively high. If you want to carry more than 3 bicycles, you can only choose a top-mounted bike rack carrier.

Height problem 

When choosing a top-mounted bike rack carrier, the height of the vehicle, the height of the user, and the height limit for daily use should be considered. Because the top-mounted bike rack carrier will increase the height of the whole vehicle, the overall height of an ordinary car with a bicycle on the roof is about 2.7~2.8m, so pay attention to the height limit. In addition, the higher the height of the vehicle itself, the more difficult it is for people who pick and place the bicycle. It is generally not recommended to install an overhead bike rack carrier on the roof of an off-road vehicle unless the height is high enough or there are tools. Therefore, cars are usually more suitable for installing overhead bike rack carriers, while off-road vehicles and MPVs are more suitable for back-mounted bike rack carriers or ball-type rear towing hook bike rack carriers.

Security Question

The safety and stability of the bike rack carrier are also key issues to be considered. In this regard, the overhead bike rack carrier and the ball-type rear towing hook bike rack carrier are better than the back-type bike rack carrier. There will also be a variety of styles and materials to choose from in the overhead bike rack carrier. It is recommended to choose the most commonly used aluminum alloy material. The overhead bike rack carrier has a high fixed position and fast movement speed. Therefore, you must pay attention to the safety in various road conditions during the purchase and selection process, such as emergency change of lanes or sudden braking in high-speed sports. The actual use of the situation is endless. Not just a safety standard or crash test can explain the problem.

Maintenance problem

When buying a bike rack carrier, you must also consider whether the accessories are easy to replace, and the cost of replacement. If the anti-theft problem is not paid enough attention to in the design process of some bike rack carrier products, many parts are prone to be lost or damaged, or the service life simply does not reach the manufacturer's nominal years. The ideal situation is of course that these accessories are not easy to lose at all or have an anti-theft design.
