Cover to 2 bikes

I'm having a hard time finding a heavy-duty cover for my two bikes on the trailer hitch rack. I've Googled and looked at everything I could find, and most of them are not durable enough or they have plastic panels over the wheels. I guess I'm gonna have to find a shop that does custom canvas work and have them make one. If anyone knows of anything that I may have overlooked, I would sure appreciate your input! Thanks!

The custom canvas shop is a good choice.. You might also look at Grill Covers.

I may be on to something. I found a Adco 6502 cover that sounds good but can't find any reviews on it. Anybody know about this one?

We have a pair of recumbent bikes that are hard to find covers for. We bought a couple of compact car covers that were on clearance. Jo Ann made a pattern and cut and stitched the cover material to custom fit the bikes. Worked well for us.

I have a Swagman XTC 2 bike carrier. I use a tarp from Home Depot, the kind with draw strings going around all four sides. A few bungees take up the slack.

Joe,

When i had to cover the water pumps on my water trucks, I had an Amish tarpmaker make them. Did a fantastic job and was reasonably priced. If you have any amish communities around you, check them out.

That's an idea Frank! We don't have Amish around here, but we have a Mennonite community and they are very skilled craftsmen. I will check it out! Thanks!

Joe, I saw pictures of your bikes in your thread about your bike rack purchase. Since they are folding bikes, have have you ever considered folding them for covering or storage. Seems a more compact size after folding would be easier to cover.

I just found a grill cover at Lowes that looks like it might do the job. It is really too big, even with the bikes not folded. I'm gonna try securing it with straps and see what happens. Normally your idea would be good, but not since the cover is too big. Thanks anyway!
