Since I do all of my training on the bike on my trainer indoors, I haven’t really had the need for a bike rack. When I’d travel to races, I’d just remove my wheels and lay my bike frame down (drive side up) and put it in my car. However, I’m looking to get a nicer bike and am looking at bike racks.
I drive a Subaru Crosstrek without a hitch so I’m looking at getting a hitch-less rack vs adding a hitch and getting a nicer rack. Anyone have experience with the hitchless racks? Are ones that sit on top of car vs strapped to hatch better/worse?
