Gearing up your car for summer vacation: Bicycle racks
Among the most common sights on the open road during summer vacation season are cars, SUVs and mini vans equipped with bike racks carrying a family’s other means of transportation.
Now, while there exists no shortage of retailers that offer such racks in their stores or online, Speedy Glass serves up their own unique turnkey solution for bicycle racks which takes the guesswork out of equipping your vehicle correctly.
The first step is identifying which bike carrier would best-serve your needs.
Our in-house experts can help you with that as they walk you through the various models offered at any Speedy Glass location. Whether you’re in the market for a rack for single bike use or several bikes, we have you covered. With leading brands such as SportRack®, Thule® and Swagman® all available at Speedy Glass, you will be sure to find one that is right for you.
The right bike mount comes down to more than simply which one is most suited to your type of bike. The vehicle you drive is also an important factor in determining which rack is the one for you. Let the professionals at Speedy Glass do that homework for you.
That being said, there are several types of bike mounts available which can better cater to your type of vehicle:
– Hitch bike rack: This type of model requires a trailer hitch (an item also offered at Speedy Glass)
– Rear mount racks: These models attach via your trunk or hatch door.
– Spare tire carriers: These models are customized for SUVs and jeeps with rear-mounted spare tires.
– Roof top carriers: These models are affixed to car roofs.
Selecting the right bike rack is only the beginning, however. Properly installing it isn’t something that should ever be taken lightly.
To that end and exclusive to Speedy Glass is the installation being included with the purchase of any bike rack. Let one of our trained experts ensure your bikes will be secured no matter where your summer road trips take you.
We can also show you firsthand how to use your rack which is something an online purchase or even some retailers won’t provide.
So before finding your bike rack solution, head over to your nearest Speedy Glass location and let one of our qualified pros get you on the right track.
That way, you and your family can spend your time planning what exciting places you want to bike to on vacation instead of worrying about whether your bikes are well fastened or that they will reach your destination in one piece.
