Wheel on? No problem! The #1 Selling Bike Roof Rack of the Summer.

The Yakima Highroller!

The Yakima Highroller!

We see it all here.  We have lots of experience with road trips and we know that carrying your bike can be a pain.  We know that there is nothing worse than struggling to get your bike home after a long day of riding.

Enter the Highroller (8002107) by Yakima.
When it comes to top-of-the-car bike racks, this is one of the best!  Yakima boasts that, “It’s capable of securing anything from your biggest freeride bike to your super sleek road bike without having to remove any wheels.”  We can vouch for that and wholeheartedly stand by this rack.

The reason the Highroller is so popular is because of its versatility.  There is no reason to buy multiple racks for your different style bikes when something like the Highroller can do it all.  It is very popular with our mountain bikers and can accommodate their bigger tires: up to 29″ tall x 3″ wide.  Perfect for after a long day on the trail!

Works for Mountain, Road, or kids bikes!

It is also versatile enough for road bikers and even kids bikes: fits tires as small as 20″.  But the best part is that it does all this while keeping the tire on!  That’s right!  No more removing the tire or switching out racks for your different bikes…the Highroller can do it all.  You can see it here: http://www.racknroad.com/product/yakima-highroller-black.html

Works for Mountain, Road, or kids bikes!

Trade-In & Trade-Up for End of Summer Savings!

Check out all the recycled and certified used racks we have!

Check out all the recycled and certified used racks we have!

We were recently asked by a long time customer, “What should I do with all of the old gear and racks lying around in my garage?”  The answer: Trade-In and Trade-Up for Savings!

He brought in all his old gear including bike mounts, ski racks, a cargo carrier, kayak mounts, and a bunch of loose parts and accessories.  To his surprise, we took it all.  We gave him a fair shake for what he offered and the best part was, it was enough to finally get the new cargo basket he’d been wanting!

We’ve been doing trade-ins for as long as we’ve been in business and we make sure to tell everyone who comes in that we deal with recycled racks and certified used gear.  But some customers are all about getting the brand new stuff all while letting their old racks collect dust in their garage.  We are here to provide you with all the latest and greatest gear, but don’t forget to bring in your old racks and accessories and trade-up to something new!!

Thule Helium Aero 9043

Mind blowing!  We love the new Thule Helium Aero Bike Rack…but we never thought it would be this popular.
The new Thule Helium Aero comes in both a 2 bike and 3 bike version.  It’s got all the bells and whistles including fully locking features and this thing they call the AutoAttach Lock Knob.  Basically, there’s a cable to lock up your bikes and the special knob makes taking this rack on and off extremely easy.  The whole rack only weighs about 25 lbs (some type of ultra-light aluminum), so when we show it to people, we insist that they actually hold it in their hands and try the installation themselves.  Most people know they have the rack for them once that happens.

This is the perfect rack for those living the “compact” lifestyle.  Anyone with limited space, whether it be in your garage or on your car, love this rack.  The Helium Aero rack has the ability to fold down for rear hatch access and the arms can fold down for an even more compact setup.  It has a small footprint in your garage and is light enough to be stored on a shelf if needed.  It fits into both 1 1/4″ and 2″ hitches and has great ground clearance, so it is compatible with all car models.  It is especially popular on smaller cars like the Toyota Prius, Honda Fit, VW, Golf, or Subaru Impreza…to name a few.
Thule Helium Aero 90433It works like your typical mast-style rack and can carry most bike models.  It has some pretty cool cradles and cages that hold and support your bike, preventing it from banging around and damaging itself, other bikes, or your car.  One reason we feel this has sold so well is because it makes sense: it’s a good price for all the features and customer’s love the feel and ease of use of the rack.

We have several employees “testing” this rack as we speak…
