Two Wheeling Tots Talk About Vertical Bike Racks For Minivans
Carrie and Natalie from Two Wheeling Tots compared two vertical hitch bike racks.
They rated the VelociRAX 6 as "exceptional" and said VelociRAX is the "best bang for your buck." They liked that VelociRAX vertical hitch bike racks are more affordable than other popular hitch racks, allow you to carry more bikes, and support more e-bikes than other vertical hitch racks.
As parents, a kid-friendly bike rack for minivans is a big deal to them. For this reason, they appreciate the hydraulic damper lowering system and roll-in and roll-out loading, which makes loading the rack easy for kids. They also enjoy rear hatch access, the rack's low profile, and the included garage mount.
Carrie and Natalie recommend VelociRAX hitch racks for hauling more than four bikes, high-quality purchasing on a budget, and for NICA rider families.
We appreciate Two Wheeling Tots feedback and continue using their insight on future designs! you can read their blog post here.
The Cherubinis LOVE Their VelociRAX 5X
Frugal Fit Dad Is a Fan of Tire-Only Securing on his VelociRAX 5
In June 2020, Dave reviewed a VelociRAX 5 on his YouTube channel Frugal Fit Dad. He loves the damper assist lowering so kids can easily load and unload their bikes.
After traveling over 1,000 miles with his VelociRAX, he gave a 1-year review. He used a fat tire hoop attachment and showed how he found a bike order for his bike assortment, and shared tips on he likes to push the rack up.
“If you are looking to invest in something that will last a long time, I think this is the way to go."
Unlike other mountain biking parents without a VelociRAX, Dave's bike tires don't spin while driving in the wind thanks to the tire-only securing rubber strap.
Thanks for the review, Frugal Fit Dad!
Take E-Bike Bike Rack Advice From Clint
Clint Gibbs is a mountain bike enthusiast and YouTube video creator. He reviewed the VelociRAX 412 in February 2021 and was impressed that the VelociRAX is an e-bike hitch bike rack that can carry four e-bikes. He gave his first impressions and shared rack tips. He was pleased with the mounting system and used the garage bracket for a convenient garage bike rack.
After finding the best combination for his bikes, he took the rack on “off-road” and “gravel-road” tests. He found that trail bikes are good on the standard spacing, but the VelociRAX 5X is the best for mixing bike styles.
He reccomends using a VelociRAX 3X or VelociRAX 5X if you're traveling with cross-country and/or road bikes, and we agree!
Thanks Clint for this video review!

Mountain Biking With Kids Picks VelociRAX Over Other Vertical Hitch Bike Racks
