I need a Cover for my Tandem

Does anyone know who makes a bike cover for a tandem? I may have to go to some custom boat cover outfit and have them make me one... any ideas?

Thanks
Eric

Are you talking about a "dust cover" or a cover to use during transit that will be exposed to the elements?

Co-Motion sells a nice dust cover for $80

Otherwise, yes... you're better off heading over to a boat cover shop or other local craftsman to have something a bit more weather resistant and custom-sized made.

Co-Mo has full cover for tandem. Bike Nahsbar once upon a time also advertised a 'bike cover' . . . splice 2 single bike covers together?
Heavy duty plastic paint tarp will work. But depending what climate zone you live in, beware of moisture collecting on the inside of a plastic tarp!
However, storing it inside is much preferable. Have seen folks put their tandem in the living room. When we were staying in a place for 3 months in Minnesota last year we kept our tandem in the kitchen! Makes a good conversation piece when guests drop by for coffee!

Thanks Guys, I think you got me covered. I just need a dust cover for in the garage. The Co Mo one is perfect.
