Like the gate bike racks, only those with rails to support the wheels and arms to hold the bicycles by the frames are recommended. Almost all of them carry the license plate and built-in license plate. Aerodynamically they are very efficient, they have the lowest loading plane (which facilitates loading and unloading) and the mid-range and high-end models are very safe. In addition, they normally carry anti-theft systems. They can reach up to 4 adult bicycles.
