My $10 Bike Rack, by Derek Pearson

For you do-it-yourselfers out there, here's a cool article by a guy who built his own rack to carry one bicycle on another, using his Electra Townie equipped with the Xtracycle longtail attachment. Of course, it would work just as well on a Surly Big Dummy...

If you're less handy with a saw and hammer, you can accomplish the same thing using off-the-shelf components. If you've already got a Big Dummy or Xtracycle, add the Wide Loader racks, then bolt on any standard rooftop bike carrier, such as those available from Thule or Yakima.
