Almost every bike needs to be carried on a car at some stage, whether you’re a road or mountain biker, a family that likes to explore at the weekend or even just to pop down to the pump track on The Murrough. Also, very handy to have when you’re dropping your bike into Enda in The Bike Room at The Sports Room for a bike service!
Whether you prefer a towbar or wheel mounted bike roof rack, we stock Thule and Buzzracks. No tow bar? Don’t worry, ‘trunk’ bike racks are available too and can carry up to three backs.
Roof Bike Racks
Pop your bike on top of your car. Whether you prefer to mount your bike by the wheel, frame or fork, there’s a bike rack option for all. The Thule ProRide is a premium upright bike carrier for the most convenient mounting. The bike is automatically positioned thanks to the uniquely designed frame holder and wheel tray. The large, soft claw pads adapt to the frame spreading the pressure. The torque litter dial controls the force going into the bike frame with clear sign of correct mounting. The claw’s extended lower jaw prevent the bike from falling. There’s a quick interface for switching the carrier from one to the other side of the car. The wheels stay firmly fixed in smartly-designed wheel holders with diagonal quick-release wheel straps. Comes with a 5 year warranty.
Towbar Bike Racks
Easy to install, a tow-bar bike rack mounts to the receiver towbar so no base rack is required. Lots of people prefer this option: no mud on the roof of your car, easier to pop your bike onto than having to lift your bike onto the roof; less noise and concern every time you go under a bridge!
No Towbar? No worries!
A trunk bike rack fits onto your boot and can carry a range of bike sizes – great if you are taking the kids out for a spin.
