Learn more about the types of bike racks available at DICK’S Sporting Goods. Roof racks are best suited for large cars and vehicles equipped with built-in base racks. Keep in mind overhead clearance when selecting a roof rack for your car. Hitch racks mount directly to your vehicle's trailer hitch and are great for use with SUVs, minivans and other vehicles with a trailer hitch. Trunk racks attach to the back of your vehicle and are ideal for compact vehicles without a roof rack. These racks are easy to attach and do not protrude far from the back of your vehicle. Always check your vehicle's manual before installing a bike rack.
