Another customer said that they were looking for a tandem bike carrier but they were all so expensive. After coming across the Swagman XC Bike Rack, he found an inexpensive option that would work to not only carry his tandem bike but also his daughter’s bike as well.
One minor complaint that we found online was regarding the documentation that comes with the bike rack. One customer points out that although the bike rack goes together quickly and easily, they would’ve liked it if the manual discussed some of the more subtle features of the rack and maybe some tips for the best way of loading up the bikes. As an example they said that you should make sure the chain side of the two bikes face away from the center post, otherwise there will be a clearance problem getting both bikes to fit.
More detailed instructions may be something that the manufacturer would like to include in the future, but as far as the functionality and value that the Swagman XC Bike Rack offers, customers are very pleased with it. It’s easy to use, accommodates bicycles of all different sizes, and is one of the least expensive options available. The Swagman XC Cross-Country 2-Bike Hitch Mount Rack certainly gets our recommendation.
