Tips Before Select Bike Carriers To Suit Your Requirements OR Needs

Bike CarriersIt always seem like such a hassle when you are trying to find the perfect bike carrier for your bike. One might think, aren’t they all the same? No! Not all bike carriers are the same. Vehicle-Accessories has quality bike carriers to fit your needs. Bikes can cost a pretty penny so, read on about tips that can help you select a bike carrier that suits your needs and requirements.

• Ask yourself, what will be the purpose of your bike carrier?

Are you going on a biking trip with friends, taking your kids on a ride with their bikes, or are you going on a solo adventure? Keep in mind that the purpose of using bike carriers is to help you carry your bike around more easily. You will want to decide how many bikes you want to fit on your carrier before it’s too late.

• Choose a bike carrier that you like, not others.

People will always want to put their two cents in about everything you do. Some people can’t help it (*parents*) but they want to make sure you choose the right product. But choosing a product that someone has recommended does not mean that it is a perfect fit for you. Stick to your gut feeling and choose the bike carrier you want.

• Do you want the standard carrier or custom made?

Vehicle-Accessories offers custom made bike carriers to fit the special design of your car and your needs. Not all cars are made equally and some people will want a different bike carrier designed exclusively for them.

• Choose a bike carrier that is easy for you to use.

You can choose a roof-mounted carrier, rear-mounted Prorack Roof Rack or a tow bar/hitch mounted carrier for your bike. All of them are great products but if you are a petite person and are constantly installing and removing your bike from the roof, you may be straining yourself and it is not the right fit for you.

• Take into consideration your vehicle.

More often than not, people will forget that the Rhino Rack Ski Carrier will be mounted on their vehicle. If you have an older car, then you may want to reconsider the heavy duty carriers because they can put added pressure on your car. The last thing you need is to buy a new car.

So the next time you go bike carrier shopping, keep this tip list in the back of you mind. It will make for an easy and stress free shopping trip. If you want the best then you will want to stick with Vehicle-Accessories bike carriers. So strap on your bike to a Vehicle-Accessories bike carrier and head out on an adventure!
