If you don’t want to worry about how you’re going to reach your bike on the roof to load or unload, then a tow bar mounted bike carrier is the right option for you. Most people will tell you that this is the best option because it’s the most convenient. After all, your bike is right there behind your car’s trunk. It’s also a safe way to transport your bike because it doesn’t get in the way except if you’re backing up. Unlike a roof rack, you don’t have to worry if you’re getting enough clearance when passing below bridges and similar infrastructures.
This is the best option if you’re looking to transport several bikes. In fact, it’s the best option if you need to transport up to 4 bikes. This makes it perfect for a family of bikers whose idea of a weekend getaway is a trip to the mountains for some mountain biking.
A good tow bar mounted bike carrier will still give you easy access to your car’s truck so you don’t have to worry about that. Your back will also thank you for it because lifting the bikes to and from the carrier is easy and straightforward.
