Product Description

The Peruzzo Professional 1 is a roof-mounted single bike rack allowing you to carry your pride and joy securely above your car. Head out on adventure or discover new routes and trails. You just need to remove your front wheel so the front fork can be securely fixed to the car bike rack. The rear wheel is held in a separate wheel holder unit.

The Professional 1 fits most roof bars that are 70 x 55mm. The Peruzzo Professional 1 is not suitable for bikes with disc brakes, as the front brake calliper will foul the rack.

Does the job well

Bought this to carry carbon road bike without fear of crushing down tube. Works a treat and would recommend. Only minor downside is that small Italian cyclists must ride bikes with very short frames and drive very small cars. Result is that with my Large size Focus Cayo and a Mercedes C class the rear wheel cannot be supported centrally in its support. This is no great problem as the rear wheel only needs to be prevented from bouncing around on its roof bar. A bit of imagination and some old toe straps is all that is needed.

Bike carrier

Wasn't sure about this product being so cheap, but when it was delivered its was well made quick and easy. Bikes stay put and don't wobbly about, the only thing is they don't lock ( but wouldn't expect that with the price they was) apart from that I would recommend these to any one. Great service from Tredz as always!!!

Just like team cars use.

I bought these to hold bikes in the garage of my motorhome. They will be much better than commercial garage bike racks once screwed to the floor. Tredz delivery was as bizarre as ever; immediately sent an e-mail apologising for a delay whilst waiting for supplier (for in-stock items) then actually delivered within five days of ordering. This was especially odd as after receiving the apology I thought I had arranged by on-line chat to delay delivery for two weeks as I was going away, Luckily package arrived 30 minutes before I went away, so wasn't lost but I'm left very puzzled by Tredz order management.

Car Rack Guide

 

Car Rack Guide


Car Rack Types

Roof Racks

Cyclist mounting a bike to a car roof rack

Benefits

  • Easy access to your boot
  • No problems when reversing or parking
  • Add accessories to carry any big bulky item, not just bikes

Considerations

  • Can reduce fuel economy by causing drag
  • More difficult to mount and remove your bike
  • Be aware driving under low objects

Boot Racks

Cyclist mounting a bike to a boot rack

Benefits

  • Affordable
  • Very portable for storage
  • Easy to mount and remove bikes
  • Improved fuel economy
  • No fittings needed

Considerations

  • May need a light board if the rack obscures your number plate and lights
  • Take care when reversing
  • Some fastenings can damage paintwork
  • No access to boot
  • Remember to disable automatic rear wipers

Towbar Racks

Cyclist rolling a bike onto a towbar car rack

Benefits

  • Low height for easy bike mounting and dismounting
  • Less risk to vehicle paintwork
  • Very strong & sturdy
  • Improved fuel economy

Considerations

  • Need a towbar fitted to your car
  • Can be expensive
  • You may need a light board
  • Obscures boot (some can tilt giving you access)

What to consider

1

Your budget

Your budget will determine the type of car bike rack you want. Roof racks tend to be the most affordable car racks, starting from around £30, while entry level boot racks begin around £40 and towbar racks from £50. 

If you're planning on transporting more than one bike, you'll want a higher budget to buy a more sturdy cycle carrier.

2

Bike tyre width

Road bikes use slim tyres and will easily mount to most car racks. However, if you're transporting mountain or some hybrid bikes then you'll want to consider the width of your tyres. 

Some MTB's come with very wide tyres (such as 27.5+ MTB’s and fat bikes) that won't fit into the standard wheel holders on roof racks and towbar racks. You can buy specialist bike racks made specifically for these types of cycles, and brands like Thule offer adapters to accommodate wider tyres.

3

Bike weight

Most car racks with come with a recommended maximum weight per bike, which will depend on the style of rack you’re using and the durability of it. Most roof and boot racks have a max weight of 15kg. 

Towbar racks are generally stronger, so can fit bikes up to 20kg. These weights can be found on our product pages. It’s worth remembering that E bikes are heavier than standard bikes, so choosing a rack that can accommodate the extra weight is essential.

4

The number of bikes you’ll transport

Roof racks will carry just one bike, but you can fit two or three racks to your roof, depending on the size of your vehicle. Boot racks often fit three bikes but can go up to four in rare exceptions (check the maximum weight capacity of the rack). 

Towbar racks can also fit up to four bikes as weight isn't so much of a problem.

5

The length of your bike’s wheelbase

Car racks will fit most standard road, hybrid and mountain bikes. However, bikes with long a wheelbase, such as enduro and downhill MTB’s may struggle to fit the length of the wheel holders. 

You can buy extenders and adaptors to help with this, although you can get adaptor beams which fit to your seatpost and headset for easier mounting.

Also, if you’re using a long wheelbase bike with a boot or towbar rack, be aware that the front and rear wheel may stick out on either side of your car. When measuring your wheelbase, remember the distance is from your front axle to the rear axle.

6

How often you’ll be travelling

If you're going to be using the rack regularly, you want it to be easy to use. A roof rack is ideal for securing your bikes out of the way. You don't need to worry about reversing or parking unlike with boot and towbar racks. You'll also have access to your boot.

However, because your bikes are so high up they can be fiddly to mount. Boot and towbar racks make it easy to secure bikes but you'll need to be careful parking up. 

The easiest bike carriers to use are the innovative new vacuum suction SeaSucker racks. All you do is press the vacuum cups down to create an initial seal then press the vacuum pump until low pressure keeps the pump fully depressed. To attach your bike simply remove the front wheel and attach the front dropouts to the metal bracket with the QR lever. The whole process takes a few seconds.

7

How far you will be travelling

Drag reduces fuel economy. If you're heading up to the highlands for an epic weekend away, then a roof rack may not be your best bet. 

Boot racks and towbar racks keep your bikes out of the wind for more efficient aerodynamics.

8

Vehicles with spoilers

If your car has a standard metal sheet rear spoiler, you may be able to use a boot mounted rear rack. It’s very unlikely you will be able to use this type of bike carrier if your car has a plastic rear spoiler (as the plastic will be too weak to support the combined weight of the rack and bikes). 

Please check our car rack compatibility section for more information.


Light boards

Do I need a light board for my car rack?

Before you buy a car rack you should determine if you need to fit a light board to your car. Your number plate and rear lights have to be visible from all angles at all times. The easiest way to do this is by fitting a light board. Don't fit the light board to your bikes (this is illegal), fit it to the car rack itself.

If you have a towball on your car then you can use most towbar racks with no problems. Roof bars and boot racks are a little more complicated. Please follow the links below to find the compatibility for our main brands:
