Why Should Transit's choose Byk-Rak brand bicycle racks for their transit buses?

Commercial Grade Construction: The Byk-Rak frame is constructed with 304 stainless steel and the wall thickness is 3 mm. This makes for a cost effective choice that will enable the rack to be durable for the everyday transit use. It is designed to go through a bus wash, and requires very little maintenance.

Reliability: We have over 2,000 of our bike racks in use at the CTA in Chicago for the past 5 years. We have no reported malfunction of a bicycle that fell out of the bike rack due to our locking system. Our patented locking system has 3 points of contact on the tire that has constant pressure applied with the gas shock. this shock is make by SUSPA who makes several model gas pressured shocks that are already on many bus applications.

Safety: A series of tests were administrated to determine the average loading and unloading speed of bicycles into our bike rack. These tests were completed by people who has no experience with the Byk-Rak system, using a variety of bikes, and included stowing and lowering the Byk-Rak from its stored position. Amazingly, the average time of operation for either loading or unloading was 10 seconds or less!

Leader in innovated Products: Midwest Bus has a partnership with Altair Engineering out of Detroit, Michigan. Altair has brought to the table their technology that they use in the auto industry and has used these best practices to develop products that are very reliable, safe and cost effective for the end user. They have taken input from our customers to develop new and exciting products.

Products: We offer 2 and 3 position Bike Racks. We also have removable rail bike racks that are "modular" in design. This enables the Maintenance Department to replace large components instead of the entire bike rack. This will save time and money.

Finishes: We can offer both stainless steel and also mild steel powder coated bike racks. Our stainless Steel racks can be powder coated to color, electro polished (Chrome like finish) and Non-Glare Bead Blasted (Dull gray finish).
