MOUNTABLE ROOF RACKS
Do you often take your bike to the city but find it difficult to maneuver into a parking space because the rack on the back of your car takes up room? A mountable roof rack might be the answer for parking in a tight spot. Roof-mounted racks allow you to stay clear of space issues and are less likely to be nicked by another car close to you.
There are two types of mountable roof racks available for your convenience:
With a fork mount, you have to take the front wheel off your bike before mounting it. This makes it easier to get your bike on the roof.
Wheel on Bike Mounts
A Wheel on bike mount means you can put the entire bike on the roof, fully assembled. You don’t have to worry about taking the front wheel of your bike off.
Do you have a hitch receiver? You may want a hitch rack for your bicycle and if this is the case there are two types you can pick from:

This style of bike rack has tilting capabilities that allow you to unload groceries or put items in your trunk when needed without having to remove the rack.
Frequently Asked Questions
A vertical bike rack is installed on a hitch, and the bikes are hung vertically, either by the fork of the bike or the handlebars.
When choosing the ideal height for a bike rack, the most important thing is that the bike does not come into contact with the road. You want it high enough to clear steep driveways, hills, and speedbumps.
Think about utility: is the rack appropriate to your needs and lifestyle? Also, consider ease of use. Can you easily fit it into a vehicle? And, of course, safety. Does it securely hold your bike(s) and lock them to the rack and car?
When choosing a bike rack for your vehicle, consider how many bikes you plan to carry and if you’re looking to carry e-bikes or carbon-framed bikes. Calgary Hitch Shop can help you choose the right bike rack for your specific needs and vehicle.
