How Tall are Bike Racks

The first thing a person should know is the height of their car. The second thing to consider is the height of the bike rack. Bike racks are available in heights from about 23 inches from the ground to about 46 inches from the ground. The third thing to consider is how high off the ground you want your bikes mounted to be on your vehicle.

Bike racks are offered in several styles. The style of rack dictates the height at which it will be mounted on the vehicle.

Vertical racks mount on the vehicle vertically where horizontal racks mount horizontally across the back of the vehicle.

The first thing you need to do is measure the height of the bike.

The height of a bike rack is determined by the size of your car. The most common size for a car bike rack is 26 inches high which will usually fit most cars. If your car isn’t low, it’s worth checking the height before you buy one.

Car bike racks are often installed on the roof of a car. They can be mounted on both the front or back of your car. The height of the rack will vary depending on your vehicle, with some mounting points being higher than others.

Most racks are around 3 feet tall but it is not uncommon for them to be taller than this.

The height of a bike rack for a car can vary depending on its design. For example, higher racks are usually easier to load bikes onto, but they may be difficult to store because they take up more space.

A car bike rack can be sorted into two categories: a roof mount and a hitch mount. Hitch-mounted racks are positioned on the rear of the vehicle and, in addition to the rear bumper, attach to either a 1.25″ or 2″ trailer hitch.

Height is an important factor for both types of racks and the goal is to ensure your bike doesn’t get scratched or damaged when attaching it to your vehicle.

Roof-mounted racks, such as Thule’s ProRide 953, require that there be enough space between your roof and top of your vehicle for proper clearance. Some vehicles don’t have this clearance so you’ll need to look for another type of rack like a hitch-mounted one instead.
