    We've had our sidewinder for several years now and love the versatility it gives us. Initially we had it on our Chrysler T&C van. The van height did make it somewhat problematic though even though I'm 6'3" tall. Now it's on a Prius V and on and off is quick and easy. Bike is very secure an...read more

    This rack makes it much easier to get a tandem on and off the roof of any vehicle but it really makes a difference with taller vehicles such as SUVs. It is for the most part very durable but it has some vulnerable components. The receptacles for the wheel straps that secure the bottom tube to the cr...read more

    The swing arm is brilliant, it makes loading up the tandem a breeze for one person. We have taken the tandem on long car trips with no problems other than a bit of wind noise. Only caution; I am 6'0" and I think it would be hard to load the tandem on a standard sedan if more than a couple of in...read more

    I'm an avid cyclist and I surprised my wife with a Trek Tandem T900. The Sidewinder allows you to put the tandem on top of an SUV by yourself, I have a Chevy Trailblazer. Once the swing arm is sideways you lock in the front forks then just lift the bike by the back tire and swing around to the back ...read more

    As I got older, it became difficult and risky to load our tandem on the top of our SUV. This rack makes the process safer and more manageable. You do need to check to be sure everything is secured including the screw bolt on the swing arm. An advantage to this rack over others we considered is that ...read more

    Wow I can actually load my tandem by myself! My car is pretty tall too and to be honest, I have more trouble loading my downhill bike on the roof than loading the tandem! I have used most Yakima roof racks and this is quite possibly my favorite. Only downside is it's hefty but i suppose it needs to ...read more
