How To Choose The Truck Bed Bike Racks

Sometimes, the best place to ride your bicycle isn’t right outside your front door. Where I live, the local streets are treacherous for bikes—we’ve got dirt shoulders and high-speed limits with no dedicated bicycle lanes. It’s great for cars, but when it’s time to ride, I’m better off loading my bike in the bed of my F-150 and driving to a safe starting point.

Serious road bikers and mountain bikers may have thousands of dollars invested in their bikes, so the idea of just tossing them into a pickup bed is appalling. That’s where a truck bed bike rack enters the picture.

A well-engineered truck bed bike rack can secure, stabilize, and protect your bicycle (or multiple bicycles) on the way to your riding destination and back again. Like everything in the bicycle and automotive world, there is a wide range of choices from inexpensive and simple to pricey and complex. The right truck bed bike rack for you will depend on your budget, your truck, your style of bicycle, the number of bikes you need to transport at once, and the level of protection and security you require.

Not only does it have a four bike capacity, it also reminds me of the bike racks I’m used to seeing at public buildings. It holds the front or rear wheel of the bike securely between two angled metal bars, and comes with a lockable cable to secure the bike to the rack.

Installation takes just minutes, and the rack is secured between the pickup truck’s bed walls with finger-tightened wingnuts—no tools required. The same BedRack can be used as a standing bike rack on your garage floor at home when you’re not hauling your bikes, or the rack can quickly be disassembled and stored.

It’s a versatile option if you’re needing to transport four or less bikes and it offers reasonable security against theft. It does however, take up quite a bit of space in your truck bed so keep that in mind if you don’t plan on using a bike rack often.
