About Bike Racks

A bike car rack consists of a set of bars mounted on the roof, hitch or trunk of a car that secures bikes for transportation. While some vehicles include factory-installed car racks, others need to be fitted with aftermarket parts. Since most bike car racks are temporarily fitted, aftermarket parts are used. Vendors are focusing on modern product designs with more features.
