Transport your bikes safely with a truck bed bike carrier
With the holiday season right ahead of us I am sure a lot of most of you’ll have made plans on how you plan to spend your vacations. If you’re looking to hit the trails this hoilday, you will need a few things. For instance, a bike, and of course, a bike carrier rack so you can transport them with ease.
A bike carrier rack is quite an important tool to have as it does help in moving your bike from one place to another. This does come in handy when most of the biking trails are quite far away. Now there are two kinds of bike carrier racks. They are roof mounted ones and rear mounted ones. Roof mounted ones are good if you have a small car and the rear mounted bed bike carrier’s are perfect for trucks and larger vehicles. Installing most truck bed bike carriers usually require hardware but the latest ones like the THULE 822XT bike carrier do not require this. The Locking mechanism attaches itself to the rail of your truck so you wouldn’t have to drill holes. This bike carrier features a 9 mm quick-release fork mount skewer which holds the fork in place for stable and secure bicycle transport. Like most other truck bed bike carriers this one allows you to carry your bike in an upright position in your truck bed.
In most truck bed bike carriers you would find that the rear wheel would be rested to the bed of your truck. The frame of the bike would be attached to the mount for a secure hold. Now that you’ve sorted out how you plan take you bike to the trails, all you need are some wind goggles to help you through windy and dusty terrains.
Get yourself ready for a good biking adventure this holiday season!
