CHOOSING THE BIKE RACK THAT SUITS YOUR NEEDS

We encourage you to answer the three questions below before beginning the purchase process. The information you provide will help you make an informed choice that meets your needs and fits your budget.

1 – What type of trailer hitch do you own?

The type of trailer hitch mounted on your vehicle determines the number of bikes you can carry. In North America, trailer hitches are grouped by class, according to the maximum number of bikes they can carry.

Look at the table below to determine how many bikes you can carry with the trailer hitch you own

TRAILER HITCH CLASS MAXIMUM TOWING LOAD (weight of the trailer and its contents) MAXIMUM NUMBER OF BIKES OPENING OF RECEIVER-TYPE HITCH
1 2,000 lb 2-3 1 1/4″
2 3,500 lb 4 1 1/4″
3 5,000 lb 5 2″
4 12,000 lb 5 2″

2 – What is the opening of your receiver-type hitch?

The opening of the receiver-type hitch can be one of the following two sizes:

  • 1 1/4” for up to 4 bikes
  • 2” for up to 5 bikes

 

3 – What types of bikes do you want to carry?

Nowadays, bicycles come in all shapes and sizes. For instance, the shape of the bike frame—with or without a top bar—is an important factor when selecting a bike rack. It is essential that you hook and attach your bicycles securely to the rack. There are two types of bikes racks:

  • for bikes with frames with a top bar
  • for bikes with frames with or without a top bar

At Autotech Performance, it will be our pleasure to discuss the options available with you.
