Buyer's Guide to Car Racks
One of the most frequent questions we get here at Basically Bicycles is “How do I put that recumbent bike on my car?” Although most recumbent bikes will fit on traditional style racks, some racks are better suited for recumbent bikes than others. We carry many racks that are well-suited for recumbent bicycles and trikes.
Check out the Basically Bicycles buyer's guide to car racks for an overview of rack types and tips on how you can take your recumbent bike or trike with you.
