Welcome to Rack Maven

You'd imagine that something as straightforward as a bike rack would be easy to pick out and simply buy right? It's essentially something made of metal or plastic you hang your bike on or stick your bike in. Unfortunately, like with most modern gadgets and accessories, it's just not that simple. Bike racks also known as bicycle racks, come in several shapes and sizes. Each one serves a specific need, takes up a certain amount of space and costs you a certain amount of money.

As an example, even though they're all called bike racks, there's a big functional difference between bike storage racks and bike transport racks. Bike storage racks come in two flavours, indoor bike racks that are commonly used to store a bike inside a garage, house or apartment and outdoor bike racks used to store bikes in a backyard or even park them on the street.  Bike transport racks, sometimes also referred to as bike carriers, attach to the roof, trunk, spare tire or hitch of a car or SUV and is used to transport bicycles from one point to the next.
