Okay, I read the post on transporting Tandems, and the great options available. Unfortunately, they seemed a little (er, um) expensive. Has anyone here built something to transport a tandem? I don't have a new, expensive model (bought an old Fiore of E-Bay) that I would be EXTREMELY careful of, so maybe there are other options?
Anyway - I have a no-name roof-rack for my car, and it accepts Thule load bars. I was thinking about just using a long piece of wood and the fork bars (whatever they're called) you use in a pickup truck bed for the front wheel, would have to figure out the rest. That might be kind of a ****** thing to do, though.
I also have a trunk rack for 3 bicycles, but a tandem would probably stick out pretty far on the sides of a Toyota Corolla. It might also be a little heavy for a trunk rack, too. Any do-it-yourself people come up with a solution? I'll borrow a pickup truck when I pick it up from the station, but need to figure out some way to get it back and forth to the local rails-to-trails parks.
