    Thule sidearm tandem rack

    wanted a rack that I could use without taking the front wheel off. a 20mm axle is a pain with 8 Allen bolts to loosen so I came up with this contraption. used a thule sidearm but cut a stock wheel tray down and added it to the existing sidearm. this way i can remove it and carry my stumpy when not carrying the tandem. still in clean up process but happy with outcome.

    This is another pic of the cut off section that has this aluminum beam welded to it and attaches to the main tray with 1/4-20 bolts mounted to yakima knobs.

    Cool idea! Thinking along similar lines. I don't understand what you've done... I'm slow... Got a pic showing the side-arm attached?

    Check on my post on the Custom Tandem Rack, I used a super stiff aluminum channel and a stock Thule Sidearm, completely bomber set up!
