Video Transcript for Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar Review

Today, we will be reviewing the Kuat Ubar bike trailer adapter bars for women's and alternative bike frames, Part Number UB-01. This bike adapter bar lets you carry bikes with oddly shaped frames on your bike rack, providing horizontal mounting points for level transport of your bicycle. Two unique special features of the Kuat Ubar is its spring-loaded tube, which allows you to easily adjust to different bike sizes and the rubber cable on the inside of the tube, which prevents the two pieces from separating. Second are its soft, coal-molded, polymer coated hooks, which open outward to ensure quick and easy installation onto the bike frame. The Ubars versatile design works with most bikes and bike carriers. It fits most bike frames, such as alternative frames, womens frames and childrens frames.

Now, well show you how it looks on each of the different styles of the bikes. You can notice that for each different bike style, it hooks to the C-post and the handlebar stern. Now, for a demonstration, well use the alternative bike frame to hook the Ubar onto the C-post of the stern and show you how it interacts with the bike rack. With the Ubar attached to the bike, well place the bike adapter bar onto the cradles of the bike carrier. We can then bring one strap around the C-post as an anti-sway and the other straps are on the bike adapter bar to secure the bike to the bike rack.

Then that completes todays review of the Kuat Ubar bike frame adapter bar for womens and alternative bike frames, part number UB-01.

I am glad I bought this along with my bike rack otherwise I wouldn't have been able to put my bike on the rack. I wish there would have been instructions with the bar as I didn't/don't know exactly how to use it on my bike. 513240

I picked this bar verses the Thule because it was less expensive and I needed 3 of them. You pretty much need them for all women's and children's bikes. However, my daughter's 20 inch bike will not fit on the Thule hanging rack with it on. It works fine on 24 inch bike and women's mountain bike. You may have to adjust the reflector lights to get it into a better position. 346050

I ordered three products from e-Trailer and was impressed with what arrived at my door, needing a bike rack that would hold four full size bikes I searched many different sites. E-trailer had the best reviews and descriptions of each which made my decision easy, the quality of each product showed as soon as I opened the boxes. The hitch was easy to install and looked good on the truck, the bike rack was just as easy to install and put four full size bike on. Being able to fit four bikes was a very big part of why I ordered it. We had recently upgraded all the kids to new bikes which the old rack would never have handled. As we prepared for vacation the four bikes fit nicely, it does take a little thinking of how to best lay them out but after figuring that out I was impressed with how well they fit and how sturdy the rack was. Thank you for your help in making this vacation a success. 284586

I was grateful to so many others who wrote reviews on this website and praised the customer service. I was looking for a trailer to haul 5 bikes including womens and kids bikes and have it work on my husbands Jeep wrangler, my daughters Subaru Outback, occasionally an RV and mainly my Toyota Sienna that doesn't even have a hitch yet. With so many options online and seemingly different products for each one, I wanted help to know if there was any product that could help me meet all me needs, so I decided to call Etrailer and get some help. They were amazing just like everyone said! He recommend the Yakima Ridgeback which would meet all our different hitch needs and the best selling Kuat Ubar adaptor bars that would make it work for our women's and kids bikes and different hitch needs. And the best surprise of all is that he told me they even carried hitch packages for my Toyota! I hadn't even expected that. The quote I received from my Toyota dealer for installing a hitch was going to cost me over $1000! But Etrailer sent me one for under $200! I am excited to get our whole family out biking more together this summer and thanks to etrailer we got everything we needed and all shipped to Alaska for only a hundred bucks in less than 2 weeks! The man on the phone explained how my husband could install the hitch himself, but after looking at it yesterday, he decided to take it to a local shop where they can raise the whole car for the install. But that will still be cheaper than what I thought I would have to pay before. We are planning to get the hitch on our van this week and try out the bike trailer by the weekend. Thanks for everything etrailer!! 392654

I just purchased a new bike rack for 3 bikes, two of which are women's bikes that would not as have fit properly. I'm relatively new to biking and i never would have thought about an adapter bar. The Kuat Ubar is easy to use, light fit perfectly with the rack. The picture isn't great, but the two bikes closest to the camera have the Ubars in use. Everything about this purchase from eTrailer has been perfect. I got a personalized recommendation (for this rack) when I submitted a question and this was easily the best online shopping experience ever. This was my first purchase here yet I was made to feel like I've walked into a store where I've been a regular for years. I'll recommend you to everyone I can! 364953

Still very, very happy with the rack and Kuat bar. Just looking forward to getting on the trails again once the weather improves. Theres a minor tear on one of the rubber pads on the rack, but its normal wear and tear.

First, thank you etrailer for your great service, communication and very quick shipping! I recently bought my first step through bike and was alittle dissappointed when I realized I could not secure it to a car rack. I did some research and found this adapter to have very good reviews and on the lower end of the price scale. Etrailer had it in stock so I made the purchase. As I said, super fast communication and delivery. I had watched the video and the adapter is and does exactly as the description states. The hooks are smooth, hard rubber and will not damage my bike. They also lock closed and unlock with a simple press of a button which makes it secure and convenient. The spring mechanism works perfectly. Just pull the bar to the length you need and it tightens itself. It feels very solid and is designed very well. I haven't used it yet but I am confident that it will do the job conveniently and easily, right out of the box and no tools needed. 256937

I have a step thru bike and needed a cross bar to secure the bike to the carrier. It would have helped if the product a was a little shorter. It can be made longer but not shorter and I had difficulty fitting it to my bike. I managed to work out a solution, it is not optimal, but it does allow me to secure the bike to the carrier. Excellent customer service from etrailer. 466528

I am very pleased with the Kuat frame adapter that I received yesterday. I have a heavier bike and was concerned that it would not support it on our bike rack. It is very solid and sturdy and I feel confident it will do the job for many years to come. Thanks etrailer for carrying this item at such a good price. 233439

Very impressed with the purchase process & high level of customer service at etrailer.com. Lots of follow up from beginning purchase, shipping status & after the sale concern that I received my order & was happy....And Yes I am. Boxes were little crushed and taped up but prob due to heavy nature of items shipping from MO to NH. I purchased Draw-Tite hitch w/Kuat Beta bike rack. These products are well designed & fit my Jeep Liberty perfectly together. Thank you again, I will recommend etrailer to many. 382066

First of all, the customer service here couldn't be better. We were new to this and ordered 3 bars for a woman's bike and 2 kids bikes. The bar is easy to use and definitely needed for putting bikes on the Thule bike hitch, which we also got from here. The only issue we had was that my daughter's bike is so small that this bar was too long for it to attach. We called etrailer and they helped us to find another bar (Yakima) that would fit, and the exchange was no problem. This company is great! 406856

Easy to use, easy to store, in the garage or the back of the car and makes it possible to carry all bikes no matter what the shape. A useful tool to own and use. Performs as advertised 388252

Going from a 1993 Merc Villager to a 2013 Toyota Sienna required a whole new bike carry rack. It was suggested by the website to also purchase the Kuat UB01 bar for my hybrid bike. After fumbling with it several times (it fits loosely on the bike until it's hung on the rack and when trying to lift a 40lb bike onto a rack at shoulder height with this floppy bar on it -- frustrating) I finally dispensed with the Kuat rack and figured out that I really didn't need the bar. The bike was a foot off the ground when on the bike rack anyway. The Kuat bar did raise it higher, but due to the fact that the Sienna is low to the ground and the trailer hitch makes the distance from ground to vehicle even closer, the bike was fine with the rack I purchased. So the bar may be a good idea for some, which is why I didn't give it a "poor" rating, but was a waste of money for me. 350461

I ordered the Swagman bike rack S64684 and the Kuat Ubar #UB01 adapter. The items were packaged together and arrived in a very short time. Both products arrived in good shape and the rack assembled easily. Both products are heavy duty and of very good quality. My bikes load / fit very well. I would recommend both products. 351362

I especially like that it adjusts for different sized bikes so that we have an adaptor now for whatever bike may need to go in our bike rack, as we often haul friend's bikes to the bike trail along with our bikes. 201167

  • Platform-Style Hitch-Mount Bike Rack for 2 Electra Townie Step-Through Frame Bikes
  • Your Electra Townie step-through-frame bikes pose a challenge to finding a suitable hitch-mount carrier since the bikes lack both a top frame tube and since they have fenders. These features make most carriers unsuitable since most use either the top frame tube or the front tire as the contact point for the arm that holds the bikes in place. One carrier from Thule, their EasyFold 2 Bike Rack # TH903202, includes some great features that may make it a good choice for you. It has a ramp...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid for Bike Rack
  • For your 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid the Draw Tite hitch part # 24899 is a confirmed fit. For a bike rack you will be limited to 2 bikes maximum because the hitches for the vehicle are Class I hitches. I recommend going with a light weight bike rack to reduce the stress on the hitch and vehicle. The Kuat Beta, # B202-114, is a great option. It is Class I compatible, holds 2 bikes, and weighs just over 12 pounds. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you. If you plan on...

  • Recommended Trunk Bike Rack for Preventing Scratches on a 2015 Mazda 6
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches or damage to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack like the Thule Helium # TH9042 and a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24908. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road....

  • RV Approved Bike Rack Similar to Thule Hitching Post
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The Yakima Longhaul part # Y02476 is an RV approved hitch bike...

  • Best Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Prius that Wont Affect Gas Mileage
  • The all-around best option for transporting bikes is a hitch bike rack. For your situation specifically it doesn't affect gas mileage like a roof bike rack does, and because it doesn't touch the vehicle's painted surfaces anywhere which prevents any possible scratching or denting. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR.

  • Can Hitch Install on 2016 Toyota Prius without Voiding the Warranty
  • You've done your research! You bring up a lot of interesting contradictions that surround hitches and Toyota Prius. I was actually just following a Prius this morning that had a hitch and bike rack installed which made me think of this as well. The situation is that in the US we are incredibly sue-happy so the manufacturers are way more strict with towing capacities over here than over in the UK. This means we get lower towing capacities and more vehicles say that you cannot tow at all...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mount 4-Bike Carrier for 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • A 2-inch Class III hitch like Draw-Tite # 75270 is indeed the best way to transport 4 bikes on your 2010 Honda Odyssey. Installation of this hitch is shown in the linked video, for your reference. Hitch-mount racks put the entire weight load of the rack and bikes onto the car's frame - its strongest part - and a hitch also allows use of other accessory items like a cargo basket such as # C18153 from Curt. Once you have your hitch installed, you'll want to take one simple measurement....

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for a 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
  • We do have some trailer hitches that are confirmed to fit your 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. Out of our selection I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24949 because it is set at a competitive price point and it doesn't require a support strap # 18050 like the Curt # C11422 does. Then for a bike rack (if you don't already have one) I recommend the Kuat Beta # B202-114. This lightweight (12.6 lbs) aluminum bike rack comes fully assembled right out of...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2017 Hyundai Ioniq
  • The hitches available for your 2017 Hyundai Ioniq are all Class I hitches like the Draw Tite part # 24963 which is a confirmed fit. Class I hitches can only carry up to 2 bikes at a time since they are for lower capacity vehicles. Any more than that and the weight and leverage of the additional bikes stresses the hitch/vehicle too much. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install...

  • Will Saris SuperBones 3 Bike Rack Fit 2019 Subaru Forester
  • I checked with Saris and was able to confirm that the SuperBones 3 Bike Rack # SA802 will fit the new 2019 Subaru Forester perfectly. This is an excellent 3-bike trunk mount rack that features dual arms for excellent bike support and anti-sway cradles that will hold them at 3 different points for a secure attachment. In addition to being extremely durable this particular carrier is in my opinion one of the better looking trunk-mount options available in terms of its physical appearance....

  • To get the most out of your trailer hitch you will want a Class III hitch with a 2 inch hitch receiver like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75876 which is confirmed to fit your 2018 Subaru Forester. This specific trailer hitch does not have a 2 bike restriction like a Class I trailer hitch would have and the 2 inch receiver will allow you to carry a wider variety of accessories than a 1-1/4 inch receiver would. The most lightweight option that we have for carrying...
