We’re talking about the innovative Wolf Bike Rack systemand, once you see this system in action, you’ll be a believer too.
The Problem with Tailgate Bike Racks
When we say problem, we mean that these bike racksystems have multiple issues and challenges. Traditional tailgate-mountedbicycle racks typically have more cons than pros. They prevent you from openingyour tailgate to load or unload cargo – unless you’re willing to unload yourbikes first. Although, if you’re using a tailgate pad, the bikes will protrudeso far into your truck’s cargo space that you won’t be able to carry muchanyway.
These systems are generally sold with a one-size-fits-allapproach but, as you may have discovered, pickup truck tailgates are definitelynot all the same size. And, in most cases, you are limited in the number ofbikes you can transport using a tailgate system. Tailgate racks aren’t alwaysthe best for your bike either, as the traditional strap designs do not alwayshold the frame securely.
Finally, tailgate racks can pose a safety hazard by blockingbackup cameras and obstructing your view. This can lead to expensive damage toyour truck and bikes and potentially even cause injuries.
