Which bike rack can transport the Weehoo iGo, or any trail-a-bike ?
Last fall I bought the weehoo iGo bike trailer for my son and he loves it. We didn't ride as much as I wanted for various reasons. I want to get a hitch type bike rack that will transport 3 bikes plus the Weehoo, so a 4 bike rack. Any suggestions? My limited reasearch so far has revealed the Yakima Holdup but to get it for 4 bikes, it will cost more than $700 ... which I find totally unacceptable for a silly bike rack!
What do folks here use? Any regular hitch type racks that work? What do folks with trail-a-bikes use?
i can always remove the Weehoo's wide seat each time, however it will make it a bit more time consuming to get out for a quick ride.
Cannondale CAAD8 (hot roddin') and a Scott SUB40 (commuter/tow-truck)
We will have a family of five this summer and we'll all be cycling. Since we have a Suburban, pulling a trailer is no big deal, so our solution is to skip the $700 bike rack and buy a small $500 utility trailer that I'll get more use out of. Run cable locks through all the frames to the trailer and then lock the trailer to the hitch and then lock the hitch to the truck and voila! You're secure for a night in a hotel on a road trip!
Those small trailers are small enough that even a small suburban city home has *somewhere* that can be used to store it.
I have no kids on bikes yet, but also have a weehoo.
I have an 2006 toyota corolla. I always breakdown the weehoo (leaving the seat on) and put it in my trunk. I put the burley trailer for our other kid on the top of the car in the yakima wire basket. And then my wife and my bike go on the yakima hitch mounted rack.
My wife and I bike on and transport our tandem on a Yakima roof rack. Our son graduated from riding with us on a baby carrier to a Weehoo trailer. We love being able to load, drive to and bike together at bike paths and scenic routes. Here's a look at how I was able to mount the Weehoo trailer on a bike tray. http://youtu.be/ENhdiJkLB24
