We are getting a Tandem and need to transport it on the tow bar of our PVC,as anyone done this
Is a tandem not too wide to carry on the back of a PVC .. ?
A tandem is 2.4 - 2.5 mt long
Fiat Ducato van is 1.8 mt wide..
do you plan to take a wheel off ?
You can get special connectors which will allow the frame to be split in two. But they are expensive and the frame will need to be resprayed afterwards. http://www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk/ss.php
Friends of ours carried their Tandem on the back of PVC and across the back of the car, yes it is quite wide but removing the front wheel shortens it conciderably and even more if you take out the back wheel and don't have mudguards, they used the Fiamma bike rack that was on when they bought it and just extended the rails a bit and put a quick release skewer in a block to hold the front forks.
Ours goes in the garage
Good point @DBK they are called S&S couplings and you can buy a bike with them already fitted JD Tandems at Gargave are a good place to start.
We carry a Tandam trike on our bike rack there are pics on here on a thread about tandams but I can't find it
Ducato is 2 Mtrs wide Tandem no front wheel 2 Mtrs exactly, just need to find a front fork locking devise ??
You could use one like this http://www.tredz.co.uk/.Delta-Bike-...le_shopping&gclid=CMTf9f-X-c4CFU-6Gwod_3oDCw#
Or you could make one quite easily.
my mistake.. I quoted the internal payload width..
