What Roof Bike Racks Are Available That Will Carry Tandem Bikes


Besides the pivoting thule top rack specific for the tandem, can any of the other top racks work for a tandem?


Expert Reply:

Besides the Thule Tandem Roof Mounted Bike Rack, # TH558P, which is designed for tandem bikes, I also have the Yakima SideWinder Roof Mounted Tandem Bike Carrier, # Y02071. This bike rack is similar to the Thule rack. Both of the bike racks can be attached to round Yakima crossbars or square Thule crossbars.

Both of the bike racks are one person loading racks. The Thule rack has the rear tire on the bike sit in a wheel tray and the Yakima rack has a padded cradle that attaches to the frame of the bike.

I am sending video links to demonstrations on both of the bike racks.
