Platform Bike Racks

Ride on bike racks, also known as platform bike racks are the type of bike racks that are generally seen on the back of vehicles and front of public transport. The design is generally similar to roof mount bike racks where the bike is “ridden” or placed on the platform and an arm or other device fastens the bike to the rack.

The major brands such as Thule and Yakima and many others all have offerings in this category. They can be mounted by hitch and even trunk mount and offer the advantage of being able to carry full suspension mountain bikes easier than traditional racks.
