2012 Chevy Silverado Bike Racks

The best bike racks are the ones you shouldn’t need to think much about. They are sturdy, no-fuss and instill confidence that your two-wheeled rig will still be in one piece when you park at the trailhead. But to get that sort of peace of mind requires a little bit of matchmaking between your vehicle, your bike rack, and your bike. Need help getting started with your selection? Check out our Bike Racks Buying Guide.

To start, one-size-fits-all and “bike racks” should never go in the same sentence. Just like knowing the exact tire pressure for the terrain, there’s more to picking a bike rack or carrier than going with your gut. The first element is knowing which style will work with your vehicle. Car owners should look for a rooftop bike mount or one of the very versatile trunk mount bike racks. For SUV and truck owners, trailer hitch bike racks are a popular choice. The latter crowd can also opt for one of the bike carriers that take advantage of the space in your truck bed and lets you safely haul up to 4 bicycles at once.

Second, you’ll want to consider the different bike mounts that each style of rack requires. Many rooftop bike racks require removing the front wheel and securing the fork, which is a simple fix when you have a Quick Release and light ride but may not be ideal for cyclists with fenders or steel frames. Meanwhile, most trunk and trailer hitch bike racks will latch onto the top tube and/or one or both tires - no (dis)assembly needed.

If you are choosing between bike racks for SUVs or trucks, the choice between rooftop bike mounts and trunk mount or trailer hitch bike racks often come down to personal preference. Rooftop bike carriers give you full usage of your trunk but require that you always pay attention to height clearance (as we’re sure your idea of a “smashing good time” means something other than driving your fully-loaded roof rack into your garage). Meanwhile, trailer hitch bike racks are easy to use but add to your vehicle length and may affect your rearview visibility.

Finally, you’ll need to make sure you are checking to make sure that the specifications of the bike racks you are considering will fit with your bicycle. Singletrack riders and Fat Bike lovers need to know they have something that always works, regardless of tire widths, such as a tailgate pad or a bike rack that secures onto the top tube. Other considerations are top tube angles, fenders, suspension, children's sizes, and tandem models.

No matter what style bike you have, though, AutoAnything has the bike racks for SUVs, cars, and trucks that you need to get from the garage to gravel (or pavement, if that’s what floats your boat). For us, all that matters is that you’re out riding. And, to help you make the best decision for how to get your ride from hanging at home to the beginning of an adventure, we provide thorough comparison guides and carry all the top brands, like Thule, Saris, Yakima and more. You can be sure that you have only the best bike racks and carriers to choose from here. “”

Swagman XC 2 Bike Platform Hitch Bike Rack

Great economical bike rack

Great bike rack for two rookie riders. Minor adjustment during assembly was reason for 4 stars. Easy installation. No wobbles. Sturdy. Made well. Not too heavy. The sliding grip arms stick sometimes but that may be because I push them down to hard against bike frame and it's hard to unlock them to slide them off. No scratches to bikes that I've noticed.

Thule T2 Hitch Mount Bike Rack

Ease of loading bikes

It is very easy to load the bikes. As a senior person, that is important! It tips down, out of the way to access the rear of the truck. View more reviews...

INNO Velo Gripper Truck Bed Bike Rack

Meets expectations

I bought the gripper in order to take my bicycle ~400 miles to a rendezvous point for a Rochester-to-Niagra Falls group trip largely via Erie Canal pathway. Due to the configuration of my truck bed's tonneau cover mounting, I had to make some adaptations by eliminating the use of the black angle plates and adding some 1/4" thick aluminum flat stock in the bed-length groove to provide a flat top surface for the grippers. Otherwise, there were no incidents at all with transporting the bike. View more reviews...

Two Wheels or Four? Why Not Both? Let’s Talk Bike Racks

Earlier last year I found myself pretty listless and frankly down in the dumps. Call it the COVID blues, or quarantine gloom. I just couldn’t get very motivated to do much of anything. I was complaining about this to my buddy, and he said, “You used to be big into mountain bikes, why don’t you […] The post Two Wheels or Four? Why Not Both?
