Hitch Mounted Bike Racks

Cracks & Racks' Hitch Mounted Bike Racks provide one of the easiest experiences when it comes to carrying bikes on a vehicle's receiver hitch. Trailer hitch bicycle racks provide one of the lowest access heights for bike racks for a great user-experience, including increased bike carrying capacity, as well as overall ease-of-use. Hanging style hitch bike racks carry the bikes by securing the bike frame's top tube, while platform style bike racks carry the bike in a tray and secure the bikes by a hook arm over the front wheel or the bike top tube. Hitch bike racks come in a wide array of locking and security options, as well as different carrying capacities. With brands from Yakima, Thule, Kuat, Softride and Saris, you'll be sure to find the right rack for your budget and carrying needs.

So long as you have a hitch on your vehicle, you can use our hitch mounted bike racks. These racks are ideal for towing bikes because the bikes can be mounted and taken down in a jiff. Combine a bike rack with one of our roof mounted cargo racks and you’re truly ready to travel. Want to learn more about a particular product? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

    1 Review(s)

    The Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack stands apart from other hanging type bike racks with its arc design making it easier to load and unload.  This also allows for greater distance between your bikes offering more protection.  Because of a taller upright mast, the Vertex sits higher than previous Thule Hitch Bike Racks, which translates into better ground clearance.   The Vertex line has also added an integrated locking system.  This allows you to lock your bike to the rack while transporting and then the lock stores neatly away when not in use.  A  long list of newly improved features make this 2 bike rack quite possibly the best value of any other bike rack available.
