Bike Racks

I've seen several threads about bike racks. Specifically about a rack that will carry more than the normal 3 or 4 bikes. There is a company in Pennsylvania that makes a hitch mounted rack that will carry up to 8 bikes. The website is www.draytonsolutions.com

Car has 5 occupants and you need to bring 8 bikes?

Sounds like N+1 Heaven

Doesn’t look like that drayton rack has good bike separation. Could lose some paint. Also you can’t use HED Jet wheels because of their non-structural carbon fairing lol. If that matters

Wouldn’t want to have expensive rims with that rack.

Don't look like it would work if you had a mix of adult bikes and smaller say 20 inch kids bikes.

good luck going around curves, speed bumps, bridge expansion joints & over or around road pavement berms. if I had that many bikes to carry I'd use a 2nd vehicle or a bike trailer. search google for "bike trailer to carry bikes"

First post is an advertisement with a link to a company selling something.

Sure...I believe this conversation is organic.

Uh huh.
