Are Bike Adapter Bars Needed For Kids Bikes with the Thule Apex Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack

Question:

Well, I looked at all your hitch-mounted bike racks, and think the best fit for my honda pilot 2011 4WD 2inch hitch, is the Apex 5. I will be carrying 5 bikes total, 2 adult bikes and 3 kids bikes. The kids are 6yrs, 5yrs, 3yrs, so small bikes. Do you think I will need adapters for kids to fit the Apex 5 properly. Tks for your site it is filled with great info.

Expert Reply:

In order to determine if the kids bikes will fit on the arms of the Apex bike rack, # TH9026, you can measure the top frame tubes. They will need to be longer than 12-1/4 inches long to fit around the arms. If your bikes will not fit, you will need the bike adapter bar, # TH982XT. I have included a link to a video that shows how the adapter works. I have also included a link to a video review of the Apex bike rack.
