Has anyone found a rack to carry a tandem on their vans? I’m about to build up a tandem for my wife and I and am in the decision process on a rack to carry it with. There’s no way I’m going to carry it up to the roof so a hitch mounted rack will have to be the route I go with. The problem I have is that I have a lot of bikes and all are a bit unique so finding a rack that can handle all of them is a bit challenging.
I would really like to pick up a 1Up three bike hitch rack but it won’t handle the tandem. I could rig up something to mount the tandem to the 1Up racks I have mounted to my Aluminess box but don’t really want to be driving down the highway with a heavy bike on a jury rigged rack. The rack I am considering is the Draftmaster with one tandem slot and two single bike slots. This would mount to my Kuat swing away rack attachment.
Draftmaster for almost any cycle
Just wondering if there was another option out there I haven’t considered. I may just get the 1Up and buy a Yakima tandem rack for use on our other cars and leave the tandem at home when we take the van out.
