FAQ:

Q: Is it ok to mount the Sidewinder Facing the rear of my vehicle? A: Yes.

Q: Can you mount a standard single-person bike in the sidewinder? A: No. This rack was designed specifically for tandem bicycles and hasn’t been tested with standard bikes, so we cannot recommend it.

Q: Is the stabilizing strap available separately? A: Not at this time, but the same function can be achieved with webbing or bungee cords.

Q: What is the “easy loading” feature to the sidewinder? A: The mounting arm swings out to the side so that the bike can be raised on its back wheel while the front fork is set into the mount. Once the fork is set and secured with the skewer, it is only a matter of lifting the rear end of the tandem and placing it into the rear cradle.
