Carbon fiber has forever changed the way bike frames are designed and built. It has allowed for bicycle frames that are up to four times lighter, but three times stronger, than steel. These frames can also be upgraded in ways that weren’t possible with other materials. The downside is that these advancements come at a cost. If you are going to spend more money on a carbon bike, then you want to give it the best possible care with a carbon bike rack.
A carbon bike rack is just as important as a bike rack for a regular bike. They are excellent space-savers and in general are useful to have around to make transporting a bike easier. They free up space in your car that you can then use for other things, such as passengers and luggage. With how popular carbon bikes are, it was inevitable that there would be a lot of carbon bike rack options too.
There are several bike racks out there on the market, but not all of them are created equal. Some of them don’t have the ability to meet the needs of carbon frames. You need to be careful when buying one. Never choose a bike rack that comes into contact with the frame.
All in al though, carbon bike racks and frames are the sturdiest options around for biking. Their strength combines with their lightweight nature to create something truly special. On top of that, they don’t rust or get damaged by UV rays. They are far more resistant to wear and tear than the average bike rack.
Given how sturdy they are, you might be wondering why they would need their own kind of carbon bike rack. Well, carbon frames are made from carbon fibers. Only strong fibers are used, and these fibers are tweaked several times before they are turned into frames. The problem is that, with enough force – such as the pressure applied by a bike rack when it presses against a bike frame – it can cause a rupture. These ruptures can be repaired, but that’s a lot more time, effort, and money. It would be better to just get a carbon bike rack that doesn’t run the risk of rupturing the frame in the first place.
Another option would be to remove the wheels. That means taking up space in the car though. A good carbon bike frame can solve every bike transportation problem you have.
