Who buys a women bike anymore?

I just bought this one https://www.amazon.com/Lets-Go-Aero-...9WE6DZY95W4RHH. Used it for the first time last weekend. So far I'm very happy with it. It folds when not in use and holds the bikes securely.

I used a 4-bike Swagman bike rack on my 35' TT with a 2" receiver that was welded to the frame (not the bumper). I carried 3 female bikes and 1 male bike. For the female bikes, I used a Swagman bar adapter. Amazon sales it. I never had any issues from this setup. It is just the DW and me now for the most part. We have a tandem bike now and I have my eye on a specialized bike rack for the tandem. Below is the link at Amazon for the Swagman bar adapter:

We are looking at a tandem e bike to take camping and I am also looking for a tandem bike rack. What did you end up with?

Thanks,

Craig

More people than ever. They are now called "step thru" bikes. Lots of e-bikes are sold with that option, many times for older people who have limited ability to swing their leg over a top bar - the perfect candidates for e-bikes.

We have not pulled the trigger on a bike rack for the tandem. We found one that will mount the bike vertically but Iím concerned about how high the top of the bike will be from the ground. I think I would need a later to secure the strap at the top. Iím going to measure the length of the tandem and width of FW to see if a horizontal rack is feasible.

X2. Step throughs for both DW me. The bikes do the same exact thing, point A to point B. When you get in your 60's you will understand comfort trumps coolness!

Not sure what kind of rear bumper set-up on the Pinnacle, but check this set up on e-trailer. ( Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, $95.93):You can make it as wide or narrow as needed. Looks like it mounts to a 4" bumper , but I imagine you could McGyver it.

I got the Thule T2 Pro XTR which wasn't cheap but it's heavy duty and worth every penny. It will hold two e-bikes up to 120 lbs., is tool-free for quick attachment, flips up when not in use, has a built in hitch lock, and convenient locking cables for anti-theft, and has wheels on it so you can roll it to your hitch!
