Bike racks for when you don't have a tow bar.

Rear mounted bike carrier

Bike racks that attach to towbars are the best option for carrying bikes behind your vehicle. However, many people simply don't want to put a tow hitch on their car and some vehicles have become prohibitively expensive to fit a towbar to. Therefore a clip on or strap on option can be very convenient solution. We offer a range of Thule bike carriers for attaching to rear of the vehicle as well as SUV spare wheel mount carriers from Rhino and Thule.

You can buy cheap strap-on bike carriers that fit 'all' vehicles but we do not sell them. This is because we do not believe there are any systems currently available that actually will work on all vehicles and the risks of getting it wrong can be significant. A strap-on bike rack that is not suitable or incorrectly fitted can cause damage to your bodywork and even put lives at risk should it come adrift on the freeway. Therefore we only offer carriers that are supported by the carrier manufacturer's vehicle fitment listing.
