The adapters are all about the same. Hollywood is as good as the rest. They are designed to solve the step through bike frame problem when loading bike to hitch carrier. The design is average and needs improvement in my opinion. Etrailer does a fine job shipping and followup. 458188

Great product. Keeps the woman's bike straight on the rack. The locks are tight and hold the handlebars and the saddle in place. Solidly build. Every time we go on a bike trip, I put it on my wife's bike. Bicycle racks do not take women's bikes in account so this bar is the best alternative out there. 211516

Needed a platform style rack for heavy E-bike that is a step through model with fenders. This severely limited the choice of racks. Found one that said it would work and it did but because the center support grabbed the frame so low, it wobbled quite a bit and rubbed against the chain guard. This adapter bar solved the problem. Ordinarily the bike hangs from this type device so rubbing on the painted frame isn't an issue but in my use It is being pushed down by the center clamp and rode over the seat post onto the frame.. I solved this with a white spacer ring I made (see picture) so the adapter bar couldn't ride down and rub the frame. It's a very solid nicely made piece of equipment. probably overkill for my use 425619

Have two bikes one is my Schwinn bike and the other is my 12 year old bike. And the frame on both of thesenbikes made it difficult to mount on my bike rack. But after using the extended bike adaptor HRBA Pro. It made a world of difference and made mounting the bikes ease and easy. And it extends so that helped also. 666285

Functioned as advertised and fit easily around my women's 1975 step-through Schwinn. The product has a real no-brainer design that is secure. I have no reason to question its ability to hold my bike on the rack regardless of road condition or reasonable driving speed. 636916

Great bike adapter bar. Well constructed, with the locking mechanism at both ends very secure. Ends are made of some high density polymer/plastic, so it does not scratch the bike. I used this on a folding back and it works well on my hitch bike rack. Highly recommended! 895148

Ask the Experts about this Hollywood Racks Accessories and Parts

  • Does Hollywood Racks Adapter Bar Have Weight Rating for Holding RadCity E-Bike on Allen Rack
    Adapter bars like the Hollywood Racks # HRBA-PRO actually don't have a weight rating because they can handle the weight of any bike that is compatible with a hanging-style bike rack. With that being said, your 65 lb RadCity E-Bike is going to be way too heavy for your Allen Deluxe bike rack. Even though that rack has a 140 lb rating, it actually means the 140 lbs need to be distributed between all 4 mounting positions so you're actually looking at 35 lbs per bike. This is even the case...

  • Recommendation for Bike Frame Adapter Bar
    With the ability to adjust both the Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT and the Hollywood Racks # HRBA-PRO will fit all three of your bikes. The Swagman Deluxe Bike Adapter Bar # 64005 does not work with all of your bikes because it doesn't collapse small enough for some kids bikes. The Thule ranges from 16" to 31-1/2" and the Hollywood Racks ranges from 15-13/64" to 28-13/16". I think both are about the same when it comes to quality. I like the rubber coated hooks on the Thule compared...

  • Does Hollywood Racks Bike Adapter Bar HRBA-PRO Fit 17.5 and 22 inch Seat Post to Handlebar Bikes
    Since the opening of the bike frame adapters like the # HRBA-PRO is a bit wider it can be challenging to get an exact measurement for the minimum but we do know that it will fit the two dimensions you have that are 17.5 inches and 28-13/16 inches. This will work great on the Yakima RidgeBack 5 bike rack part # Y02459 as well. I attached a link to this page that will take you to our return policy page as well.

  • Is Weight Capacity of Curt 5-Bike Racks Referring Only to Bikes
    The 225 lb weight capacity of the Curt Premium 5-Bike Rack # C18065 is not referring to hitch weight, just the weight of the bikes. Keep in mind you will need Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO if you plan on carrying a bike that is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well of the...

  • Does Bike Adapter Bar HRBA-PRO Work on Both Platform and Hanging Bike Carriers
    Yes, the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO will work fine on a platform-style rack like you described, such as their # HLY84FR, and it will also work on a hanging-style bike rack like their Road Runner # HR400. We have many such adapter bars and they appear on the linked page which includes details on their adjustable size range.

  • Is Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO Needed for Specialized Womans Bike
    Bikes like your Specialized Expedition Women's Sport and other alternative-frame-design bikes that lack a horizontal top frame tube (typical of a standard man's bike) will benefit from using the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO. This simple device attaches between the seat and handlebar posts to provide a level mounting surface to mate with the carrier's arms. This will keep the bike level on the carrier to maintain safe ground clearance at the wheels.

  • Can a Sondors Fat Tire Bike Use a Bike Adapter Bar to Mount to a Hanging Bike Rack
    The difficulty with an electric bike is the fact that they weigh a lot and many hanging bike racks cannot support these bikes. Even with a bike adapter bar like # HRBA-PRO attached, the bikes are too heavy to be carried in this way. The best solution is to use a platform style bike rack that is rated to be used with electric bikes. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack, # HLY84FR, can both handle the heavy weight and the fat tire design of the Sondors bikes. This rack will fit...

  • Frame Adapter Bar for a Women's Bike on the Hollywood Racks Over the Top
    For your Hollywood Racks Over the Top 2, part # HRF2, you will need to purchase a frame adapter like part # HRBA-PRO. This helps the women's bike ride level with the ground, keeping it from contacting the ground when going up or down over curbs or hills. I've included a video that shows how the bar helps an aggressive frame bike ride on our test course.

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack for 2017 Jeep Wrangler
    The spare tire bike rack I recommend for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler is the Hollywood Racks SR2 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount # HRSR2. I really like this rack because it is a great value; it gives your bikes a very sturdy way to be carried and doesn't sacrifice quality while maintaining a great price point. The SR2 even has a locking knob which secures the rack to your Jeep. Keep in mind because this is a hanging rack, if you plan on carrying kids' bikes or bikes with a step-through...

    Yes, the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2-Bike Carrier # HRF2 and 3-Bike Carrier # HRF2-3 are confirmed fits for your 2010 Honda CR-V. However, your hatch cannot be opened with the rack on, as is true of all trunk-mounted bike rack. Additionally, please note that when using any hanging rack like the Bones you'll need Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal...

    Since you do not want to install a hitch on your 2017 Toyota Highlander, you will need to use a trunk-mounted bike rack, and the maximum number of bikes that can be carried with a trunk-mounted rack is three. And for your 2017 Highlander the 3-bike rack I highly recommend is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. I really like this rack because because of its effective anti-sway cradles that help eliminate bike sway, keeping your bikes from damaging each other your Highlander....

  • 3-Bike Rack for Use on 2017 Honda CR-V Touring
    No plastic roofline spoilers are meant to have any weight on them so we do not recommend using a bike rack that will apply any such pressure on this vehicle feature. You are correct that the Saris Bones racks are not a recommended fit on the 2017 Honda CR-V Touring model. The best option on your specific vehicle is indeed the 3-bike Hollywood Racks # HRF2-3, or the 2-bike version # HRF2. Both racks feature a unique arched frame design that protects your spoiler from potential damage...

  • Is Adapter Needed with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for Step-Thru Frames
    The padded ratcheting hooks on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack # HLY74FR that you were looking at can slide up and down the length of the vertical mast, so they should be able to grab onto the frame of a step-thru bike like yours. With that being said if the step-thru is more dramatic than most you may just need to add an adapter bar like # HRBA-PRO to create a horizontal attachment point for a secure connection. In either case I think a better option for your particular...

  • Best Bike Rack for E-Bikes with Fenders That Doesnt Rub
    I have a few different bikes racks for you that will carry e-bikes with fenders. That said, you will need to go with a frame mount style as you can't use a wheel mount bike rack on a bike with fenders. The best option for you will be the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack part # HLY84FR which has an 80 lb per bike weight capacity and soft padded frame hooks so you don't have to worry about rubbing. If either of your bikes has a steep drop tube frame then you will also need...

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack That Mounts to 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    There is absolutely a bike rack that mounts to the spare tire of your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, so long as you do not have the spare tire mounted backup camera on your Jeep; if you do have a backup camera in the spare tire there would not be a way to mount a bike rack. So if you don't have a camera, the bike rack that fits your '20 Wrangler Unlimited is the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount # HRSR1 which will give you a secure, simple way to take your bikes with...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Work With a Womens Step-Through Bike Frame
    The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE part # HLY84FR will work with most step-through frame bikes. The best chance you have of this is to switch the short hook to the bottom and then the long hook to the top on the upright as that will then allow for the lowest connection point. That said, there isn't really a measurement for this so best option would be to order the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # HRBA-PRO which is designed to provide an attachment point for step-through frame...

  • Can I Carry Kids Bikes Without Adapter Bar On Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack
    Yes the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack # C18064 can carry most kids and women's bikes without an adapter bar. The smaller and unique frames those bikes usually have creates issues on most bike racks when trying to keep the bikes level. Other times it is too challenging to get the bike rack arms through the frame or the arms are too spread out for the small frame. The tapered design of the bike rack makes it easier to fit a smaller frame bike like a kids bike on the last two spots. With your...

The best one for you will depend on what type of bike you have. For example, if you have an alternate frame (step-through)bike then you are going to want to consider a wheel mount bike rack like the BackStage or the T2 Pro XTB because they hold the bikes by the...

Having two step-thru bikes on this rack creates a slight challenge to get both of the arms down all the way but they do travel the entire length of the center mast.

    The Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR is a great choice with a lot of great reviews from our customers. Most women's bike frames do not have a horizontal cross tube to hang the bike from on the bike rack . An adapter bar clamps to bike's seat post and the other end clamps to handlebar stem post and creates a horizontal attachment point on the frame. If your frames do not include a horizontal cross tube already, I recommend Hollywood Racks adapter bar part # HRBA-PRO because of...

Because this secures the bikes via the frames, it won't effect the fenders on your bikes, but you will need to use a frame adapter bar like the # HRBA-PRO on the bike with the step through frame.
