Mountain biking is a bit of a hobby of mine. But transporting my bike to where the trails are has always been a pain. Roof racks are great but sometimes after hours of riding, you don’t feel like lifting that bike over your head to fasten it onto the rack. And if it was an especially muddy day of riding, all that dirt will fall onto your car. I used to have a Thule bike carrier that strapped onto the back of the car but that was a hassle to put on and off. The Champion Power Equipment Bike Carrier is a good compromise. If you have a trailer hitch on your car, this is a good solution for carrying your bikes around. The CPE Bike Carrier gives you easy access to your bikes, can tilt back for easy access to the trunk of your car, and can fit up to 4 bikes. No more putting the bike inside of the car, taking up precious room. And since the cradles, that hold your bike onto the carrier, can rotate up to 90 degrees, the carrier can accommodate bikes of varying frame designs. So your bikes can stay in an upright position as you’re driving to the trails.
