Details
Mounts onto car roof ladder bars (you can buy these from your car dealer or high street autostore, we don't have them). Universal for virtually all tandems. Each wheel sits in a trough at either end of the rack, the bike is then held in an upright position with two adjustable supports which keep the frame in a vertical position. (highly recommended by SJSC). Straps included and are definitely to be used.
Largest size ladder bars that will fit Clamping brackets are 25mm deep and 40mm wide. (depth can be increased by fitting longer bolts)

ProsSecure
As we use our new tandem every weekend I have left the roof bars in place and the tandem rack attached. I have just removed the uprights, which makes reassembly pretty quick. The rack holds our tandem very securely (use the straps to tighten down) we have done some local trails (Nottingham) gone to Cannock Chase (50 miles) and went to Wales last week. Nothing has loosened and our tandem arrived safe and secure. If you've got a tandem buy one.

This is a sturdy, practical carrier for a tandem. Straight forward to assemble and use, if not the quickest.

Min/Max Wheelbase For Pendle Rack
By
03 Jun 2015
What is the min / max wheelbase supported? Specifically, would a Me'N'U2 fit? I'm also looking at the ATOC which, with the swivel loading design looks very nice, but is a lot more expensive.

I'm also wondering if one could lift the front wheel up to this pendle rack, strap it loosely to stop it falling, then lift the back wheel up before securing properly. My car roof height is 6ft.

Thanks
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

The maximum wheelbase that will fit on the this rack is 187CM, the Minimum is 157CM. Unfortunately due to the design of the Pendle you would not be able to lift the front wheel up first like the ATOC as you would run the risk of damaging the front wheel and it would not be safely secure.

Thanks.
Aero Bars

I notice on the manufacturer website that you need adaptors to clamp the rack to aero bars. If I buy the rack from SJSC can you supply these as I have Thule aero bars?
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

We stock the Aero bar plates required for fitting to aero bars. They are available separately on our website and are SJSC part 31476, you will need to choose the correct size for your aero bars from the drop-down menu.

Thanks.
Would The Tandem Carrier Be Suitable For An Xtracycle?
By
04 Jan 2014
Hello
I have an Xtracycle I would like to begin transporting, along with my wife and kids' bikes (4 in total). Would this carrier work with an Xtracycle?
(http://www.xtracycle.com/)

Also, is the tandem carrier just as good for carrying a normal bike, too, should we wish to go with 4 normal length bikes?
Thanks
Andy

Hi,

In theory I can see no reason as to why this wouldn't work with your bike. The "troughs" that the wheels sit in are too far apart to be used with a normal bike I'm afraid.

Thanks.
