Bike racks are an excellent choice for taking your bicycle(s) with you. When you are planning a nice day out, you want to take your bike easily with
you. Whatever type of bike you want to take with you, an electric, city or a
mountain bike, at Winparts you will always find the right bike carrier that
What is the best bike rack?
If you are planning to buy a bike rack, we recommend paying attention to a
number of things. That way you can be sure that you choose the bike carrier
that meets your wishes and requirements.
First of all, it is important to see how many bicycles you want to place
on the carrier. Are you going alone, as a couple or with the whole family?
Winparts offers, among other things, bike racks that are suitable for 1 or 2
bikes. But also racks that can carry up to 3 or 4 bikes. You can also choose to
buy a separate
roof bike rack. Please pay attention to the maximum carrying
weight of the roof bike racks and the car itself. The carrying weight is the
maximum weight that your roof bike rack or the roof of your car can hold. We
also strongly advise against loading more weight than recommended.
Secondly, it is important to look at the type of bike that you want to
take along. Not all bike racks are suitable for electric bikes or mountain
bikes (MTB). Electric bikes generally weigh a lot more than a regular city
bike. Carefully look at the maximum carrying weight of the bike rack, your bike
may be too heavy to transport. If you want to transport sport bikes of MTB´s,
ensure that the tires fit the loading ramp.
Another important point to look out for is the electrical connection.
Both a bike rack and a car have a 7-pin or 13-pin plug connection. The
connection of your car and the bicycle rack may differ from each other.
Differences in connection types should not hold you back. You can easily fix
this using an
adapter connection plug.
Assembly is also important. The most common racks are intended to be
mounted on your tow bar. However, not all cars are equipped with a tow bar.
That is why Winparts also offers next to
tow bar bike racks, rear mount bike racks or roof bike racks. Additionally, Winparts also offers a wide range of
tilt-able bicycle racks. The tilt function makes it easy to reach the trunk,
even when the rack is mounted on the tow bar. How to assemble a bike rack?
As mentioned before, the assembly depends on the type of carrier that you
purchase. You can easily mount a tow bar bike rack to the tow bar. By means of
a simple mounting system, the bike rack is attached in no time. Does your car
not have a tow bar? Then a rear mounted bike rack is an ideal solution. These
can easily be mounted to the tailgate. You can also choose a roof bike rack if
you don’t have a tow bar. These are assembled to the roof bar. Fitting a bike
carrier is very simple nowadays. Many bike racks are equipped with smart
systems, making assembly and dismantling quick and easy.
