"Hello" and tandem stand (not work stand) question...
I am new to the forum.
I ride a Santana Rio tandem with my 8-year-old daughter. The Rio has drop bars and inverted tread tires on 26" wheels.
Sometimes we also pull my son along in a Winchester trailer.
I need a bit of advice. It is a pain in the butt to pull the tandem out into the driveway and then hook up the trailer because there is nothing nearby to lean the tandem against to hold it upright while I hook up the trailer. So, I am looking for a stand that I can use to hold the tandem upright, preferably by just the front wheel.
So, if anyone knows of a brand or model that is heavy-duty enough to hold up an entire tandem please let me know. Or if you know where there are some plans or do-it-yourself ideas I'd love to have a look at those also, as I do have a welder and the will to use it.
Any and all help appreciated.
