Believe it or not, there is a proper way to get your bikes from A to B. Below, we show common mistakes found in loading and transporting your bikes on and off your bike rack.
If you purchase a bike transportation device, whether it's a bike box, enclosed carrier, or bumper rack, you expect your bicycles to arrive safely at their destination with little to no work. While essentially this is true, there's some things you need to know to avoid before you hit the open road.
First and foremost, you need to determine the design of your rack, which includes finding out the preferred method of loading your bike; most often times this will be by the frame. Although this is the most common practice, we've found that racks that are designed to transport by the wheels are much more secure.
Consider the elements. This might seem overly obvious but, keeping the potential weather hazards in mind never hurt anyone. The size and position that your bikes are in during travel can greatly affect gas mileage and drag.
