Car Parts & Accessories: Bicycle carrier Video Guide

Bicycle racks are various devices used to carry a bicycle on or near another vehicle. Conventional applications include roof racks or bicycle racks for rear trailer hitches in cars, minibuses, caravans or regional buses. Bicycles are very bulky equipment. In many cases it is only possible to carry them in one piece by using special fastening options. Conventional designs are, for example, the roof rack, in which the bicycle is attached to the roof of the vehicle by a rail system, or the coupling rack. On the coupling carrier, the trailer coupling system is fastened by friction to the spherical head of the trailer coupling by friction. Rear carriers are also located at the rear of the vehicle, but are attached directly to the rear of the vehicle or the tailgate. Drawbar carriers can be found on the drawbars of caravan trailers. Fastening systems for transporting bicycles inside vehicles, for example in mobile homes or minibuses, are less common.

In fastening systems that use the trailer coupling, the carrier is fastened to the coupling head that has previously been freed of grease. As a rule, clamping systems are used which are clamped with a torque wrench or with a system which can be operated without tools. The biggest advantage of these bicycle racks is that they are not dependent on the vehicle type. Four bicycles can be attached to each vehicle on the EUFAB 11514 clutch carrier hatch. The only requirement is that the vehicle has a suitable trailer coupling. In some special cases, the bicycles must also be fastened with straps, for example. But as a rule, the trailer coupling is sufficient as a fixing point. Often coupling carriers can be folded back together with the wheels so that the trunk is still accessible. It should be noted that in Germany only coupling carriers with rear lights are permitted. The third braking person must also be recognisable. Rear carriers differ only marginally from coupling carriers. Only the fastening system does not require a trailer coupling, as it is attached to the tailgate. Many porters in this category have limited rear visibility.

For a long time, roof racks were the only permitted means of carrying bicycles in Germany. This is because it was only allowed to carry objects on the roof for a long period of time. In the meantime, rear carriers from neighbouring western countries, in particular France and Holland, have increasingly gained acceptance. Many vehicles already have special mounting points for roof racks. A base frame is attached to these mounting points, on which rails for the bicycles are mounted in the direction of travel. The Thule Rapid Foot Set is clamped to the mounting points to secure the associated railing bracket. The advantages of the roof rack are that the base area of the vehicle remains unchanged. This facilitates manoeuvring with the vehicle. Furthermore, in contrast to rear carriers, the view to the rear remains unobstructed. It should be noted that caution is required when low clearance heights are required, for example in multi-storey car parks or under bridges. The driver should always be aware that the vehicle height is considerably higher than usual when using a roof rack. The air resistance of the vehicle is also considerably increased. This increases fuel consumption and forces the driver to drive slower. Lifting the bicycle onto the vehicle roof represents an additional effort.

Due to the trend that vehicles are getting bigger and bigger and more and more SUVs and station wagons are being bought, bicycle transport inside the vehicle is favoured. In the growing vehicles there is more and more room for the beloved wheel. Advantages are in particular the unchanged aerodynamics and thus the constant fuel consumption. The wheel is also better protected against dirt, cold, vandalism and theft. The driving behaviour is influenced only very slightly by the only slightly changed centre of gravity position. This, however, requires a very large space in the interior, as bicycles are still very bulky. Many motorhome manufacturers now offer the option of integrating a special bicycle garage inside the motorhome. There are currently various universally mountable systems for the interior mounting of bicycles with various modes of operation. On the Thule Indoor 592 bicycle rack, for example, the basic frame is attached to the seat rails of the vehicle.
