This is the probably the simplest kind of tri bike rack but definitely good enough for my purposes.
Can anybody help out?

Or you could go to "i-house" (like Home Depot in Taiwan) to buy some steel tube

and borrow a drill from friends and make it on your own or go to blacksmith like this one

According to this photo, it shouldn't be hard to make it.
Or you could take a look at here, you might find something interesting here.
I hope these works for you

I assume you're not just putting up bikes in your backyard for show and need to take down your intended rack when you practice, why not just have everyone bring their own?
Here's a suggestion: http://www.equationspeed.com.tw/pdtdetail.php?c=195&id=1300
Very very easy to take apart and bring on the go. Not flimsy either! Also very useful when you decide to maintenance/clean the bike.

These will be beginners for the most part and so we don't want to burden them with having to buy even more stuff. But as something we buy ourselves and have set up at the site, this is definitely something we could consider (at least to start with).
Eventually, having the long bar to simulate race conditions is something we want. You get nervous before triathlons because of all the things you have to remember. For a running race, for example, I feel no nervousness at all. I just put on my shoes and number and I'm off to the race venue. In a triathlon, there's so much that could go wrong with the equipment and something you might forget. So having a bit of practice with a real bike rack would be very helpful.
