Will a Tandem Bike Fit on the Yakima HighRoad Wheel Mount Roof Mounted Bike Carrier


I have a Cannondale road tandem that Id like to put on a roof rack. How far does the rear wheel tray extend? Do you know if the rack is compatible with a tandem? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

We do have tandem roof rack bike racks, but the HighRoad, # Y02114, will not accommodate the additional wheel base length of a tandem bike.

In the Yakima brand we have the SideWinder Roof Mounted Tandem Bike Carrier, # Y02071, which is compatible with tandem bikes and Yakima round and Thule square crossbars. We have a video review, see link, that shows this bike rack in use.

We also have the Thule tandem bike rack, # TH558P, which has a tray that is 75" long and should work with your tandem bike and Thule standard and Yakima crossbars. We have a video review of this bike rack as well.
