Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar Review

Today we'll be reviewing the Hollywood Racks bike adapter bar for alternative frame bikes, part number is HRBA-PRO. This is also available in the extra large version, part number HRBA-PRO-XL. The adapter bar is going to allow you to adapt your women's, children's or nontraditional bike frame to fit a wide variety of bike racks. The bar is constructed of a sturdy steel with a black powder coat finish which is nice to hold up against rust and corrosion. The bar also features a limited lifetime warranty. Telescoping the bar will allow you to achieve a range of different bike frames from 15-1/4 to 28 and 3/4. In a fully extended position, the bar will lock into place with the push button.

Pressing the button will allow you to slide it back in to make a smaller adjustment. Pushing the gold button down is going to allow you to swing the lever open so you can use the clamp. The non-marking plastic clamps are going to help to protect your bike's finish. There is both a larger and smaller collar. The larger collar offers an inside dimension of 3-1/2 inches in length and the width comes to almost 2-1/4.

For the smaller collar our length is 3-1/4 inches and the width is about 1-1/2 inches. We'll now fit the bar to our nontraditional style bike. We'll start by extending it a little and then you'll want to open up your clamps. We'll hook it around the seat post and then move to the handle bar post and repeat the process. You can then press it together. We'll get our bike loaded onto the rack.

For demonstration purposes, we're going to load it on to the slot closest to us but keep in mind at home if you're only hauling 1 or 2 bikes, you want to load them in the closest opening to the vehicle. We'll secure all of our straps and we're ready to hit the road. With our bike loaded, we'll go ahead and take it out on our test course so you can see how it's going to look in action. We have our slalom which will show you the side to side action. The alternating bumps is going to give you an idea of the twisting motion. The solid bumps will show you the up and down movement of the rack.

That concludes our review of the Hollywood Racks bike adapter bar part number HRBA-PRO. .

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

This is a great product. I have a 2006 Lexus RX400H. The fit is ideal as it completely takes the spoiler out of the fitting equation. First time out of the box it took a bit of head scratching to get it set up and secured in position but the instructions were clear. Subsequent fittings are a breeze - no more than a couple of minutes and the rack is fastened, the bike loaded and on my way. No hesitation in recommending this to folks with SUVs and spoilers. 194051

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

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

works as described. A bit difficult to unhook from bike. Width of bar makes it a bit too wide to fit nicely into bike rack mounts (Hollywood F2 over the top). 414427

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

The Bike attachment bar works great for attaching a ladies bike onto your bike rack. My wife's bike has a very large V shape to it that made it hard to attach to the swagman dispatch bike rack. 423390

Very solid adapter. Works well Just got it but it looks like it's built to last, very pleased with the quality. Quick delivery too. 274921



- HRBA-PRO
by:

The bike rack is superb. I had to order a set of replacement straps because I did not realize that over time, vibration would cause the spokes to cut into the rubber on the straps. Now, I just make sure the straps are not rubbing against the spokes. The rack held up well from Pennsylvania to Florida and back with two bikes in it, and is easy to put on and off the trailer hitch on my Silverado pickup. I haven't used the frame adapter very often, simply because I found a workaround. But when I do use it, it works quickly, simply and as advertised. 295988

Ask the Experts about this Hollywood Racks Accessories and Parts

  • 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 # HR1455Z-E, 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.

  • 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 SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1455Z-E, can both handle the heavy weight and the fat tire design of the Sondors bikes. This rack will...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Best Bike Rack for E-Bikes with Fenders That Doesn't 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 SE2 2 Electric Bike Rack part # HR1450Z-E 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...

  • Is Adapter Needed with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Step-Thru Frames
    The padded ratcheting hooks on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2 Electric Fat Bike Rack # HR1455Z-E 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...

The best one for you will depend on what type of bike you have.

For a bike rack that is a confirmed fit and will work well with your Electra Townie, I recommend using the Hollywood Racks Expedition 2 Bike Carrier part # HRF6-2.

The biggest difference I would like to point out right off the bat is weight, the BikeWing is much lighter at 41 lbs compared to the Sport Rider at 81 lbs. However, you can remove the bike rack in two pieces with either option to make things lighter but the the BikeWing will still have the edge. In regards to compatibility with step-though...

This bike rack does have a "tilting" feature but it's a little different than normal bikes because you have to remove the bikes to tilt the mast down. While this does mean that the bike rack will allow you to open your rear hatch, it does mean you'll need to unload any bikes to do so (or reach over the backseat from inside).

Spoilers like this are not made to bear any weight and many racks' mounting straps can put pressure on them.
