Bike Frame Adapter for Hanging-Style Carriers

Rhino Rack Adapter for Bike Frames

If you have a bicycle with an irregular frame - such as a woman's, child's, or full-suspension bike - you may need a bike adapter bar to carry your bike on a single- or dual-arm, hanging-style bike rack. This adapter bar creates a horizontal mounting point that ensures your bike will hang level on the rack for safe transport.


Telescoping Tube and Easy-To-Use Collars

Rhino Rack Bike Frame Adapter

This adapter telescopes from 23" to 29" long. The ends of the telescoping tube have plastic collars that clamp around your bike's seat post and handlebar stem post. To open a collar, push down on the tab and slide it open.


Rhino Rack Frame Adapter Clamped Bike

Place the collar around your bike frame and slide it back into place until it secures with an audible click. These plastic collars help protect your bike from scratches. And the black powder coated steel construction resists rust.

Video Transcript for Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack bike adapter bar, designed for use with women's, kid's, or hybrid-style frame bikes. The part number is RRRBCA021. As you can see, mounting a standard women's frame bike, kid's frame, or alternative frame bike, can sometimes be a problem. We've got our tire and our seat way up in the air back here, our front tire's pointed down. It's just not doing our bike justice, it's not going ot give it a good ride down the road. So Rhino Rack's bike adapter bar's going to help us out with that. The bar itself is completely adjustable, we can move this in and out to fit a wide variety of lengths of bikes.

We've got a nice rubber coating all the way around the inside. This is going to protect our bike, our frame, stuff like that, from any kind of damage. The design is unique in that it slides rearward, allowing us to get the adapter bar around the portions of our bike we need to without one of those levers that kind of come up and down and sometimes cause interference. Now, to open it, all we do is press down on the small tab and slide the moving portion rearward. Then bring it around, and as you can see we're going around our seat, too, here at the rear, and at the front we've gone around the stem here on our steering wheel. Once we have our adapter installed it's just a matter of placing it right up into the rack.

As you can see, this is going to give our bike a much more level, flat ride. The weight's distributed evenly across the bar, so we don't have to worry about any kind of pressure differences or anything like that. As you can see, for demonstration purposes we are going to use the outside cradle, but if you're actually going to be transporting your bike you will want to have it all the way on the inside. Essentially now we're just going to bring our straps on around. We secure our bike as we normally wood.

We can take advantage of all the anti-sway cradles and things like that without any interference. This is just acting as our standard upper tube on most bikes. That will complete today's look at the Rhino-Rack bike frame adapter bar, designed for use with women's, kid's, and alternative frame bikes, part number RRRBCA021. .

This was part of my third order from etrailer.com. We needed something to make carrying my wife's bike easier. Shipment arrived this morning along with the rack. This is extremely well made and should last a lone time. This makes carrying a girls bike really easy. Have already installed rack and bikes on RV and took it for a test drive. Perfect!!! Would recommend the adaptor bar over similar products I looked at locally. 346830


Comments

After my last review we went on a 7000 mile RV trip through 9 states which lasted 27 days. The rack and bar were great. At night all we had to do was easily remove the bikes and lower the rack out of the way for access to RV storage if needed. I would periodically check the bikes and all were really secured. Getting ready for another trip 0f 5000 miles. Don’t have to worry about our bikes.I had previously purchased a hitch mounted motorcycle carrier which has been used on a3500 mile trip. Performed great. No problem in loading or unloading our scooter. Thanks for great products.

Very pleased with overall experience dealing with customer representative Wayne. Placed my order and asked a number of questions regarding the Thule rack that I wished to purchase. All questions were answered in a highly professional way. Received a quick delivery of product in 3 days although a 4 day window was given. Very happy with my purchase. Have not used the rack yet, but feel content that it was a good choice. Will get back to you in future after using rack, and hope to be able to give a good review along with some photo's. Thanks again, Wayne and E-Trailer. 146546

Have been using the Thule Rhino Rack to transport my wife and grandchildrens bicycles over the past year and find product very easy to install and does just what it is intended to do very well. Keeps bikes stable and level while transporting. Good product. George E.

  • Recommended Budget Bike Rack for 2015 Honda CR-V
  • I have a few different recommendations for your 2015 Honda CR-V that you will want to look at. The Saris Sentinel 3 Bike Carrier # SA1052 will fit on the trunk of your Honda so you can make sure that the space on your roof and cargo area remains free. Keep in mind you will also need to get the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 for installation on any of the Saris brand bike racks. Since it looks like you have some varying bike frames that might not sit properly...

  • Will Bike Rack Anti-Sway Cradles be Compatible With Bike Frame Adapter Bar
  • The anti-sway cradle will still work. The rubber strap for the anti sway strap can be attached at any place on the seat post down tube. Using a frame adapter bar won't affect that fit, as you can see in the photo I've provided. As far as frame adapters go, we really like the # 64005 from Swagman because it's the easiest to use adapter bar we offer.

  • Bike Adapter Bar Compatible with Bike That Has 20-Inch Spacing Between Handlebar Stem and Seat Post
  • The Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # RRRBCA021 is sized to work best on bikes that have a handlebar to seat post distance of 23 to 29-inches. But since we offer these adapter bars from many makers we can find one for you that will better fit the 20-inch span on your wife's bike. Instead you can use the Kuat Ubar # UB01, the Hollywood Racks # HRBA-PRO or the SportRack # SR0500. All of these can accommodate the 20-inch spacing.

  • Frame Adapter Bar Recommendation that is the Easiest to Use
  • We have heard that the buttons of the Thule Bike Adapter bar part # TH982XT can be pretty difficult to press. A coworker of mine has this adapter and has reported the same thing. I wish there was a trick to it that would make it easier, but there isn't. Of all of the adapter bars we offer the easiest one to use by far is the Swagman Adapter Bar part # 64005. If you are frustrated enough to try a different adapter this would be the one to use. I attached a review video for you to check...

  • Recommended 4 Bike Rack Compatible with RV Hitch Behind Forest River Cherokee 274DBH Travel Trailer
  • The Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703 will fit your Forest River Cherokee 274DBH travel trailer, and the Thule T2 Pro 4 bike like # TH9034XTS-9036XTS will fit the receiver but it is not recommended for use on a travel trailer due to the extra movement on the back of a trailer so it would not be covered by warranty if used. I've attached the part of the instructions that outline this. I recommend the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Silver...

  • Platform Style 2 Bike Rack Fit for 2014 Nissan Rogue
  • The Swagman Dispatch, part # S64684, will work with your 2014 Nissan Rogue. This bike rack is compatible with the 2 x 2 inch receiver on your Class III trailer hitch. This bike rack is designed to be carried without a ball mount. I have attached a review video of this platform bike rack for you. If you plan on carrying bikes with alternative or step-though frames that lack a tradition top frame bar, I recommend using an adapter bar, like this one by Rhino-Rack # RRRBCA021. The adapter...

  • Is a Bike Adapter Bar Required When Carrying A Ladies Bike On The Thule Raceway PRO
  • If your women's style bike has a slanted top bar, it will likely work on the Thule Raceway PRO 2 # TH9003PRO without an adapter bar. If your bike is a step-though style and does not have a upper crossbar for the frame clamp to attach to, you will want to use a bike adapter bar. I personally like the Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # RRRBCA021 because of its push-to-operate tabs and budget friendly price. I have attached a review video of this adapter for you.

  • How To Carry Bikes While Towing a Boat Trailer
  • I do have an option for you but I can't say I have ever heard of someone mounting a bike rack directly to the tongue of their trailer nor do I have an option for this. The best option to carry your bikes while towing is between the trailer and vehicle. This option will also allow for a much greater variety of bike racks to be used as well because they don't need to be rated for use on a trailer. In order to carry your bikes between the trailer and vehicle you will first need a dual...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Venza
  • We offer trailer hitches from Curt, Hidden Hitch, and Draw-Tite for the 2012 Toyota Venza. I have attached a link to all of our trailer hitches for your Venza. I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 75663. This hitch has a 2 inch hitch receiver, a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, and a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. It is important to check your owner's manual for your vehicle's maximum towing capacity and tongue weight capacity before deciding what cargo you want...
