Having a three wheel bike means you have more options for transportation than the average two wheeler. That said, there are some things to consider before making your decision. In this article we’ll go over the different ways that you can transport your bicycle and what each one entails.
A bike rack is a tool that can be used to securely transport your bike on the road or in the back of your car.
There are several types of bike racks, but all of them work by securing your bike to a mount that attaches to either the top or side of your vehicle. They can be purchased at any hardware store, online retailer, or sporting goods store. Bike racks come in two basic styles: trunk-mounted rack and hitch-mounted rack. The most popular are trunk-mounted racks because they’re easy to use and install, as well as inexpensive compared with other options like trailer hitches which require professional installation by mechanics or garages who have experience with these types of products.
A tow hitch is a good option for people who tow their bikes. You can use either a hitch rack or a hitch basket. Hitch racks and baskets are like any other trailer, but they have a hitch on them instead of an axle. They work with any vehicle that has the right type of hitch (such as those found on trucks) and are often used to transport bikes without having to lift them into the bed of the truck.
A hitch rack can be used in conjunction with your bike trailer to carry two bikes at once in one go: just place one bike on each side of the rack!
If you’re in the market for a pickup truck, there are a few different types of bike racks available. The first two we’ll cover are hitch-mounted and trunk-mounted racks, both of which come in styles that can be easily folded up when not in use. Roof racks offer more options for transporting your bike but may not be as secure as other options.
Car? Van? SUV?
While many cars and vans can accommodate three-wheelers, some may not be able to hold these vehicles due to their construction or size limitations.
If you’re using an SUV, consider how much weight it can carry as well as whether there’s enough room for all your bikes. Many SUVs will have plenty of space a couple three-wheeler but may not be able to carry more than one at a time because of their smaller size (although some folks do manage).
Know what you’re working with before you make a decision.
Before you begin, it’s important to know what you are working with.
- Know what your car can handle. This will help determine how much space and weight limits you have for transporting your bike.
- Understand what your budget is for a roof rack or hitch rack (if applicable) and accessories like locks and straps. It’s best to do some research on these beforehand so that you don’t get stuck with an expensive surprise at the checkout counter!
- Decide if it is more efficient to purchase an individual part of the transport system or invest in a whole kit that contains everything needed for safe transport of your bike(s), including tie downs and locks if necessary.
There are a lot of options out there when it comes to how you can transport a three wheel bike. The important thing is to make sure that whatever you choose will work for your needs and your vehicle.
