Tow bar mounting bike carriers

There's quite a lot to think about before buying a tow bar rack so we recommend that you read our Buying Guide and Recommendations. In summary, choose between a cheaper "Hang On" style rack (Best Buy = BUZZ RACK Moose) or a more expensive wheel support rack (Best Buys = Atera STRADA DL at the top end, BUZZ RACK BuzzRunner in the mid market), but also check out the excellent MaxxRaxx carriers which have the benefits of both types.

All the tow ball racks are in our 90 day exchange scheme so we hope that you'll buy with the confidence that if your first choice is not quite right then you can exchange it for another. Please also use the Filter and Sort tools to help you choose.
