So Sergram,

Are you still hauling this bike on the hitch rack as photo'd?? If so, has that created any problems. I have a similar hitch rack and have been waondering how to haul a tandem should we get one.

With a hitch rack note where the exhaust pipe of your vehicle is in relation to your tire. I learned long ago that it is possible to fry or age a tire sidewall rapidly on a long drive.

Hopefully by now he has ditched the OEM whitewalls and is busy frying the sidewalls of a Schwalbe Big Apple 2.0
