Today we're going to be taking a look at the Heininger Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part number HE6009. The Heininger bike adapter bar is going to help you adapt your women's, children's, and bikes with alternative frame styles to your hanging-style bike rack. The telescoping arm extends from 15-1/2 all the way out to 28 inches, so it's going to fit a wide variety of bike sizes. Now, the hooks are rubber-molded, so they're not going to scratch your bike's finish, so we can just simply open up the gates . It doesn't matter which end you use; you just want to use whatever works best for your application .. We've got a large one here, and a smaller one ...

We're going to put the smaller one up front, close up the gate, and the large one in back. Now, we can just undo our straps on our bike rack. Then, we'll grab our rust-resistant, black powder-coated steel bar, and lift it up into the cradles. Now, we can just secure our straps just like we would on any other bike. Then we've got it. That's going to complete our look at the Heininger Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part number HE6009..

The adapter arrived exactly as described on the website. It for perfectly the first time and works perfectly adapting my wires bike to fit on our carrier. One thing notice when receievd is the adapter bar has a wide adjustment range and it was found it will also work on my daughter's 16" MTB so we ordered a second. 163797

I am very pleased with the adapter bar. I had to make an adjustment to my wife's Diamondback bike to make it work properly, but probably would be no different with any other adapter bar. Works great & we take our bikes wherever we go! 366932


Comments

After using the extendable bar for womens bikes, I have noticed a couple things that could be tweaked. When extending the bar it sometimes comes apart 2 separate pieces. Would be nice if there was a built in catch that would not allow this my opinion. Also, with my wifes bike I had to make a part to put around the neck of the handle bars to make everything work. Because the seat is higher than the handle bars the bikes front tire is close to the ground when trailering. Thus the homemade part to help elevate the front of the bike so the front tire does not come in contact with the road while trailering. Hope my feedback helps.

Product arrived on time in good condition. The Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter part HE6009 seems like a decent product, but the product description that says it spans from 15.5"-28" is incorrect. The smallest clear span you could do with this product is about 16.5-28". I ordered it for small kids bikes, and I think should work for what I need it to. But just know it doesn't compress down as far as it says. 639481

Works as advertised for well less than the name brand versions and does the SAME thing. Don’t waste your money, buy this one. I needed three so I got three for the price of two. Spring loaded release on either end so no tools required, easy to adjust, and well built. 500763

The bike frame adapter bar does what it's supposed to do. Spring loaded release button is somewhat difficult to depress if you are a female with any length to your fingernails. As we are just using this product once a week, it will do, however, if we were to increase our usage we would upgrade to a product with an easier release. 213317

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Are Bike Adapter Bars Required to Load Women's and Children's Bikes on a Bike Rack
  • That is simply too much to spend on adapter bars, I agree. You don't have to use a specific adapter bar so you can use # HE6009 which costs much less than some of the other options. You don't necessarily have to use bike adapter bars. But there are some situations where using one is the only way to load certain bikes. Take a look at the video I have linked for some examples. A regular women's bike frame that has the slanted bar doesn't have to have one (though the bike would be at...

  • Does Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar Have a Spring Return or Way to Stay Tight
  • Advantage SportsRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HE6009 does not have a return spring or way to tighten it down. It doesn't really need either because once it is installed it cannot open more or contract. The best adapter bar is # 64005. I recommend it all the time because of its lower price and it is the easiest one of all the adpater bars to use. It does have a spring return. I have linked a video review of the adapter bar for you.

  • Will SportsRack Adapter Bar Work With Detail K2 Bike Rack?
  • Yes, the Heininger Advantage SportsRack Adapter Bar # HE6009 is going to work with the Detail K2 # K2BCR490. The K2 features cradles that are designed to fit bikes even with larger tubing so the SportsRack Adapter Bar will be a smooth fit. I've added links to review videos of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Should I Use a Hitch Adapter or Match the Bike Rack to my 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch
  • It would be much better to get a bike rack that matches the hitch opening size. Any time you use an adapter, you cut the hitch capacity in half. If your tow vehicle is a 2007 Volkswagen Passat, this means you have a Class I hitch trailer hitch, rated at 200lbs for tongue weight. Once you add the adapter, you would instantly be dropping your hitch tongue weight capacity to 100lbs. Your bike rack and bikes would weigh too much to carry on your hitch using an adapter.

  • Recommended Hanging Hitch Bike Rack for Transporting 4 Bikes on 2012 Subaru Forester
  • You can transport 4 bikes on your 2012 Subaru Forester by using a 4-bike hitch-mount rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR as long as your Forester's hitch is either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III. Your hitch will have a safety sticker that indicates its class rating and its maximum tongue weight (TW) load capacity. The combined weight of the rack and bikes needs to remain within the hitch TW capacity. The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR 4-bike rack fits both...

  • Is An Adapter Bar Required To Load Children's Bike on the Thule Passage
  • An adapter bar might be required to hold your children's size bikes in the Thule Passage 2 Bike Rack # TH910XT. This rack will accommodate some children's bikes, but I cannot guarantee a fit for your bikes because bike frames come in many shapes and sizes. One reason you might need an adapter is if there is not enough room in the bike's frame for the carrier's arms to fit through. The arms of the bike rack measure 14 inches from center of arm to center of arm. If the arms cannot fit...

  • Hitch Bike Racks Recommendations for Class I Hitch Type on 2008 Honda Accord
  • We have a variety of Hitch Bike Racks available that will fit your 2008 Honda Accord. When choosing a hitch bike rack, you need to decide if you would prefer a Hanging Rack, which holds the bikes by their frame, or a Platform Rack, which holds the bikes by their tires. For a Hanging Rack the Thule Vertex 2 # TH9028XT is compatible with your Class I hitch. However, if you are carrying a woman's bike or bike with an alternative frame you may need an Adapter Bar such as the Advantage...

  • How to Carry 5 Bikes with Alternative Frames on a 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • The main factor to consider when deciding if a bike rack will work on your vehicle is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper. You can then compare that to the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack. This distance on the Yakima FullTilt 5 Bike Rack part # Y02463 is 10" which should be more than enough for you 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe but you may choose to just do a quick measurement to be sure.
