If you need a roof rack to transport a bicycle, the Swagman UPRIGHT Roof Mount Bike Rack is a great option and a great value. This upright roof rack is easy to assemble and takes just a few minutes to install. Plus, you don’t need to remove the wheel on your bike, which makes it extra convenient.
To mount the rack you need square, round, or oval crossbars that are up to three-inches wide. This rack has a weight capacity of 35 pounds, and you can install more than one on a single vehicle. It’s made of steel and plastic and weighs just five pounds. It features a minimalist design and comes with tie-down straps and a locking mechanism to deter thieves. Despite its low price, this rack is quite sturdy and secure.
One downside is your bike may sway a little bit during travel, so you may want to use bungee cords for added security. Also, it may not accommodate bikes with wider tires.
