Bike Rack Reviews, Advice and ‘The Bike Rack Test’

Best Bike Racks Reviews

We understand how difficult it can be for you to make sure you are choosing the best bike rack before you buy. In fact if you end up with a bad bike rack the consequences can be disastrous as I know to my cost when a few years ago my bike rack fully laden with bikes became detached from my car and bounced along the highway behind me! So we published this website to help solve that problem. We don’t sell bike racks, we research them and write about it, so that we can give unbiased and informed opinions on what we think is the best bike rack for your particular needs.

To help you to understand what a top bike rack must deliver and how to compare possible bike racks in your search for the best one we have created The Bike Rack Test, which clearly identifies the best bike rack for you, so follow the link and learn how it works.
