Bike Car Racks

Kuat NV 2.0 and Add on

We both use this rack and love it. It carries everything from road bikes to Fat bikes with up to 4.8 inch wide tires. Kids bikes are also accommodated with a 20 inch adapter (takes a minute to put on). We have even squeezed on 16 inch kids bikes with a few mods. The tool  free cam system keeps the rack super secure with no sway or movement, even with the add-on which increases the capacity to four bikes. It takes only five minutes to attach the add-on for family outings so we keep the 2 rack platform for the majority of the time and install the add-on only when necessary. The bike stand feature has also come in handy for road trip repairs.

1 UP Bike Rack

This bike rack has it all. The ability to carry 16- 29 inch diameter tires that are up to 3.1 inches wide  (and a kit for tires wider than 3.1). It can also carry bikes up to 54 inch wheelbase and is compatible with add on trays. Best in class tilt and folding mechanism and 50 lb per bike load capacity make this a top contender.
