      Comments about Thule Tandem Carrier 558P:

      Because I am nervous when relying only on the "rocket sprocket" to hold this bike on the roof of my car, I usually add additional straps as insurance. The fact that it really requires 2 people to load is not too much of an inconvenience for a tandem bike but it is misleading advertising. I would like to be able to buy a locking skewer to minimize risk that someone may have played with the system. I was also really annoyed to have to buy an extra windscreen to muffle the noise from the rack. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend but I would also suggest that they compare it to other models.

      Comments about Thule Tandem Carrier 558P:

      I carry my Cannondale RT3000 on top of my 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser. I love that I can load and unload the tandem by myself. The carrier also holds the bike securely even on long road trips. The carrier has been on my car for over 2 years, winters included, and looks as good as the day it was installed. My only wish is that it could lock like my Thule single bike carriers. If it were one-key compatible, it would be perfect.

        Comments about Thule Tandem Carrier 558P:

        I bought two of these to mount on top of Thule tracks and Rack mounted on the hard tonneau cover on my Tundra. The quality is exceptional and they hold our long wheel base recumbent bicycles firmly in place. Mounting to a Thule rack is a breeze and I would definitely purchase again.
