Three types of bicycle racks are available today on the market: bicycle racks that can be attached to the roof, rear tow hitch or rear trunk. The criteria that should be taken into account when making a choice is the number of bikes to carry, the frequency of use and the vehicle type, which can make the choice easier.
A roof rack is preferred for aluminum bicycles to reduce the impact with the roof. If you have mountain bikes, all types of bicycle racks are suitable. However, if you carry your bicycles over long distances, it would be better to avoid strap-based systems that can be attached to the trunk.
On the other hand, you should also take into account the type of your vehicle. You must know the towing capacity of your vehicle to choose a suitable bicycle rack.
