Recumbent Bike Rack
The rack is fabricated from 6061-T6 aluminum with mill finish. It is designed to fasten to Yakima bars with four standard Yakima clips and 5/16” carriage bolts that come with them. Yakima also makes clips that go around Thule bars with the same bolts. The rack will accommodate any wheelbase Tour Easy, other LWB recumbent with similar wheelbase, and tandem road bikes.
The rear connection to the cross bars was designed to adjust to any reasonable bar spacing. The front fork is held by a standard quick release. The rear wheel is held in the slot of the rack with two toe straps, remember them? The post in front will accommodate a front fender. The Yakima parts are not included. They are available at most bike, ski, or sporting good stores.
The Recumbent Bike Racks are available at Coventry Cycle Works in Portland, Oregon or direct from Topper Industries.
