I would call it more of a combo, since it doesn't specifically have bike "tracks" or rails to insert the wheels like some other racks in the marketplace; the platform is a wire mesh surface to allow for dirt and moisture to easily pass through. It does have a removable t-bar upright for bike securement. That being said, it's still only intended for 250 lbs. maximum weight -- just because the rack is there and could be potentially be used for cargo doesn't mean you should overload it!
