Basic trunk mounted 3-bike carrier
Designed to fit most sedans, hatchbacks, minivans and SUV’s, the Allen 103A Basic 3-Bike Trunk Mount Rack offers an easy-to-use and versatile option for transporting bicycles whilst on the road. Its 15-inch long carry arms can accommodate up to three bicycles, and can be released with a single pop-up pin when not in use for easier storage. The rack’s streamlined, single-configuration design eases installation and minimizes assembly. The rack also incorporates Allen’s own “No-wobble” bolt, which eliminates movement of the rack inside of the hitch and secures the bicycle firmly in place. It is finished with a rugged UV-resistant polyester powder coating, ensuring both durability and a sleek, attractive look.

About Allen Bike Racks
In 1967, after a few years of working on the aerospace technology for the Apollo missions, Dick Allen was out of a job. Government cutbacks led Allen, a Harvard-trained physicist, to turn out to be his garage hobby into a new industry. A cycling enthusiast, inventor, and family man, Allen had a personal need for a bike-carrying device. On weekends, he would take his sons and wife to Cape Cod or the White Mountains of New Hampshire. What proved difficult again and again was the transport of his family’s bicycles. Somewhat than fight through inconvenience with twine and a dinged car, Allen sought an answer for himself as well as a market in which he foresaw major growth possibilities.
All the time a pathfinder, Allen took to work in his Lincoln, Massachusetts garage looking for a more efficient way to transport bikes. Drafting designs all through the day and constructing them right through the night, he put together a model made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding). At first, the Allens’ tested the prototype on weekend excursions. Finding the first trunk-mounted rack to be a success, Dick started Allen Bike Racks. Dealer acceptance came quickly, and by 1971 Allen Bike Racks were sold nationally through numerous major bicycle distributors. Today, the company owns over three dozen patents and offers a versatile product line of bike racks whilst Dick’s son Alex now owns and operates the business. What started out as a small garage run operation now operates three warehouses nationally, two factories in a foreign country, and has products sold in more than a dozen countries around the world.
