If you own a tandem bicycle, chances are good that you're a bit of a hopeless romantic. You enjoy the presence of another human beings so acutely that you even subject yourself to sharing a bicycle with them. So, shopping for a bike carrier probably had you questioning the validity of your romance. That is, until you found the Rocky Mounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack. The RockyMounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack attaches directly to either Yakima round cross bars or Inno Racks and Thule Racks base rack square load bars as well as attaches to T-slot style bars like Thule Aerobars, Whispbar, Yakima Jetstream Bars, as well as T-slot equipped factory installed crossbars from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Volvo, and Mini using included T-slot mounting hardware. The Rocky Mounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack holds standard 9mm forked bikes in place securely with RockyMounts' reliable skewer system, and features a unique sliding tray design that allows users to carry a standard single bike as easily as a long tandem or recumbent bike. Sliding this tray forward when not in use also eliminates any possible contact when opening up your car's rear door or hatch. But what really sets the Rocky Mounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack is a quietly ingenious pivoting fork attachment point. Simply rotate the fork attachment point towards yourself, lift the tandem's fork up, fasten, and rotate the rear end of the entire bike up and onto the Rocky Mounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack. It's a process that's almost as easy as being the rear rider on a tandem bike.
  • Simple push button design and pivoting axle allows one person to easily load bicycle
  • Internal bearings and headset technology make for silky smooth movement when pivoting the bike up or down from the rack
  • Telescopic tray design allows for both tandem bikes and single seaters. Also works with recumbent bikes
  • Attaches directly to Inno Racks and Thule Racks base rack square and Yakima base rack round bars, as well as attaches to T-slot style bars like Thule Aerobars, Whispbar, Yakima Jetstream Bars, as well as T-slot equipped factory installed crossbars from Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Volvo, and Mini using included T-slot mounting hardware.
  • The Rocky Mounts Offset Bracket (sold separately; see accessory add-ons below) may be required to use the pivoting function of the Tandem R4 on certain vehicle rack set-ups because the front chainring of the tandem bike can hit the window or doorframe while loading the tandem
  • Universally compatible with any bike with a wheelbase from 35" to 78"
  • The Rocky Mounts R4 Bike Rack is constructed with the strongest non-corrosive, heat treated 6061 aluminum
  • 9mm quick release skewer secures the fork to the rack, and works with both road tandems and mountain bike tandems
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Sleek silver anodized finish

Safe to say there isn't much like this out there. As owners of tandem bikes, my wife and I have been on an eternal quest for a bike carrier that works for us. Voila! The Rocky Mounts Tandem R4 Bike Rack is so easy to use, load, etc. Plus, when we're done, it couldn't be easier to slide back into place
