Video Transcript for Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar Review

We're going to be taking a look at the Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part number SA3040. The bike beam makes it easy to adapt a woman's, a children's, or alternative frame style bikes, to fit your hanging style bike rack. The horizontal bar bridges the gap between the handlebar and the seat post, providing attachment points for your bike. The beam telescopes from nineteen to twenty-five inches, so it's going to fit a wide variety of bike sizes. It's constructed of a black, powder-coated steel, so it's going to be durable and rust resistant, and Saris stands behind the product and offers a limited lifetime warranty. Now, let me go over the features and go ahead and show you how to get it installed on your bike. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and press in on your yellow tab here.

That's going to release the hook, or the loop. Do that on this end as well. We'll come down, and I'm going to hook it over my seat post first. Just like that. Close the loop up until it snaps into place.

Then I can extend my adapter out to fit around my stem there. Then I can close that one up. Then we'll come on up, we're just going to set the bike adapter bar in the cradles. Then we can just tighten down our straps, just like we would on any other bike. All right, and then we've got it. That's going to complete our look at the Saris Bike Beam Frame Adapter Bar, part number SA3040.

Bought Saris Bones 2 bike carrier for our new Honda CR-V to take our bikes to Florida for the winter. Also a support bar for my woman's bike. Received them in two days! Was really impressed not only with the speed of delivery, the quality of the product but also the email follow ups. Watched the etrailer instruction video on line which was most helpful. 327845

I purchased this bike rack for my wife and I. It is very well made and easy to install. I had it unpackaged and on my vehicle within 30 minutes. Ongoing removal and installation only takes me about 5 minutes. I purchased the Saris Beam Bike Frame Adapter for my wife's bike to make it easy to put her bike on the rack. I highly recommend it for transporting a woman's bike. Overall I've found this bike rack and adapter to be great products. 376155

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2015 Audi A3 Convertible
  • I have just the trunk mounted bike rack for your 2015 Audi A3 convertible. Check out the Saris Bones. This rack is available in a 2-bike version, # SA805BL, and a 3-bike version, # SA801BL. There are also several different colors available that can be seen on the fit guide page that I linked for you. At this time these are the only trunk mount bike racks listed as a fit for your vehicle. If you will be carrying any women's, children's or alternative frame bikes that lack the traditional...

  • Will the Saris Solo 1 Bike Rack Fit a 2007 Audi A4 Sedan
  • According to Saris, the Solo 1 Bike Rack, # SA102, will fit your 2007 Audi A4 Sedan. This bike rack can support 1 bike up to 35 lbs. If you will be carrying a women's or alternative frame bike without the traditional horizontal top tube, then I strongly recommend picking up the Saris Bike Beam Adapter, # SA3040. Bikes with angled frames can cause ground clearance problems, especially on cars that have lower ground clearance than SUVs and vans. This adapter will allow you to mount your bike...

  • Good Bike Rack Needed to Carry 2 Expensive Bikes with a 2015 Audi A3
  • The Saris Bones bike racks, like part # SA805BL, are confirmed to fit your 2015 Audi A3 and are decent bike racks if you are looking for something affordable. If you are wanting a really good bike rack for expensive bikes then I recommend installing a trailer hitch on your newer 2015 Audi A3 and using a hitch mount bike rack to avoid bike rack to vehicle contact, plus most of the hitch mount bike racks have more to offer. If you were to go with the Saris Bones then you would likely need...

I have attached a link to our fit guide page that shows all of the trunk mount bike racks that fit your vehicle. The Saris Bones is available in a 2-bike version, # SA805BL, and a 3-bike version, # SA801BL.

  • Does the Saris Bones Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe
  • I checked with Saris and the Bones truck mounted bike rack is listed as a fit for your 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe. Saris has some special fit notes for this bike rack and your vehicle. If your vehicle has a Narrow Bumper, use caution when placing bike rack bottom foot on bumper. NOTE: CENTER OF FOOT MUST NOT OVERHANG END OF BUMPER. Two bike, 70 pound load limit. Bikes must be located in positions closest to vehicle. I have included a link to a video review and instructions for the...

  • How to Get Female Bike to Sit Level on the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL
  • Typically you will want to load the heavier or bigger bike first onto any bike rack. The same is true for the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL on your 2014 Honda CR-V. Since the female bike that you have does not have a horizontal cross tube (like it sounds like your male bike has), you will want to use an Adapter Bar # SA3040. This will clamp on the handle bar and seat posts of your female bike and allow you to secure it to the Saris Bones 2. These are also great to use for increased...

  • Will the Saris Bones Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2004 Toyota Sienna
  • There are several different trunk mount bike rack options available for your 2004 Toyota Sienna as long as it does not have the plastic spoiler at the top of the rear hatch. I have attached a link to all of the 3-bike options for you to check out. The Saris Bones bike rack that you referenced is available in a 3-bike version as part # SA801BL and it will fit your Sienna as long as it does not have a spoiler. If your Sienna has a spoiler, then I can only recommend the Hollywood Racks...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack on 2017 Buick Enclave That is Easy to Use
  • Assuming you have a 2" hitch receiver such as the Draw-Tite # 75528 on your 2017 Buick Enclave, the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is not difficult to install, requiring you only slide the rack's shank in your hitch receiver. However, it does weigh 40 lbs, and though you may be more than able to handle a rack that heavy without any difficulty, there are lighter options available that are going to be easier for anyone to carry. A lightweight 4-bike hanging rack similar to the Hitching...

  • Can Rhino-Rack 2-Bike Rack be Locked
  • The Rhino-Rack Hitch Lock # RRRBCA025 is not compatible with the Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack # RRRBC045; the best way to secure this rack is to use Cable Lock # CAB-10 and wrap it around the bike rack and the safety chain loops on your trailer hitch. There is a great option for a quality economical 2-bike hanging bike rack that you can lock, the Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack # SA882. This rack has arched arms to increase ground clearance, can tilt to make accessing your rear cargo area easer, folds...

  • Will Saris Bones Truck Mount Rack Fit on 2013 Nissan Sentra with Flat Trunk
  • I checked with my contact at Saris and the Bones trunk mount bike is a fit for your 2013 Nissan Sentra with low profile spoiler. Take a look at the video of this bike rack installed on a 2014 Chevy Cruze and you can see how it is installed on a flat trunk. You will have no problem clearing the low profile spoiler. Since you will be carrying bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) I recommend using bike adapter bar # SA3040. This...

  • The Saris Bones 2 trunk-mount bike carrier, part # SA805BL, is a terrific cost-effective and American-made bike rack that is confirmed to fit your 2013 Elantra sedan. With this rack you'll need to use their Hatch Huggers # SA3035. If you will be transporting any bikes for women or kids that lack a horizontal top frame tube you'll benefit from using a bike adapter bar # SA3040. This simple device connects between the seat and handlebar posts to provide a level mounting surface to mate...

  • Will the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL Fit a 2008 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback with a Spoiler
  • We have confirmed with Saris that the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL will fit your 2008 Suzuki SX4 Hatchback with the spoiler. Although we don't have a good picture of this bike rack on a car, I attached one of a similar Saris bike rack so that you can get an idea of what it will look like on your SX4. Please note that if you have any bikes with an alternative frame then an Adapter Bar # SA3040 may need to be used so that your bike has the proper ground clearance and sits level....

  • Best Way to Haul 3 bikes on a 2009 Audi A4 Avant
  • I do have a few different solutions for you to be able to carry three bikes on your 2009 Audi A4, but using a hitch mounted 3 bike rack is not the way we want to approach this. The reason that using a 3 bike rack is not advisable on a Class I hitch has to do with the weight distribution. Any bike rack that holds more than two bikes tends to stick out a little further from the hitch to accommodate the three bikes. If we load a 3rd bike on a Class I hitch it could end up doing some damage...

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-350 Coupe
  • I do have an option for you to carry bikes on your 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-350 BlueTEC but they do not make a trailer hitch receiver for the coupe models of this vehicle to my knowledge. Instead, you will want to look into getting a trunk mounted bike rack as this will be your only option besides a roof rack and roof mounted bike rack. For a trunk mounted bike rack, I recommend using the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier part # SA805BL. This bike rack unlike most other trunk mounted bike racks...

  • Can Bike Rack be Mounted to Towing Bumper on 1999 Ford Explorer
  • Hi! While we do have bike rack options that will work for your 1999 Ford Explorer there are none that will attach directly to your towing bumper. If you wanted to use a hitch-mounted rack like the Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT you referenced you would need a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 75096. If you did not want to add a hitch to your Explorer I recommend checking out a trunk-mounted bike rack. A great option that will fit your '99 Explorer is the Saris Bones # SA805BL which...

  • Best Bike Rack for a BMW 3 Series?
  • The Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack, Part # SA883, is an good choice for the BMW 3-Series. It is capable of holding less than 3 bikes. Given that the BMW 3-Series only has Class I hitches, if you go this route, I would recommend keeping the bikes in the closest two positions to the rack to decrease the amount of stress put on the shank of the rack. A third bike will cause leverage to be applied to the shank and make it bend, damaging the rack. If you'd rather not take the risk, I'd recommend...

  • Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier for 2007 Nissan Altima
  • We do carry the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount - Black # SA801BL which is extremely similar to the Saris SuperBones you were referring to and it is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Nissan Altima even if you have the rear spoiler. I also recommend the Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # SA3040 when you use this rack. I also recommend the Saris Cable Lock - 8' Long # SA981 to secure your bikes to the rack and each other.

  • Will the Softride Dura Parallelogram Bike Rack Fit on a 2011 Subaru Outback with a Class II Hitch
  • I have a few excellent hitch mount bike racks that will work with the factory Class II trailer hitch on your 2011 Subaru Outback, but unfortunately Softride has discontinued the Dura and Element bike racks. Instead, I recommend looking at the Saris Glide EX 4 Bike Rack, # SA774, because it has all of the same features as the Softride models you were looking at such as the included cable and hitch locks, anti-sway cradles, 4 bike capacity and you can tilt the bike rack away from the Subaru...

  • Weight Capacity for Bike Frame Adapter Bar SA3040
  • The weight capacity for the # SA3040 is 35 lbs which is the standard weight capacity for these adapter bars. It's also the same capacity as nearly all hanging bike racks as well. If you needed a higher weight capacity you'd need a platform style bike rack like the # SA4025F which has a capacity of 60 lb per bike.

It has anti-sway cradles which will prevent both bike to bike and bike to vehicle contact in addition to rubber feet and hooks to protect the vehicle's finish. Please note that if you have any bikes with an alternative frame then you will also need to use an adapter bar like the Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # SA3040.

  • We do have a solution for you but since you have the Gran Coupe version of the 2018 BMW 440i you won't be able to use the Thule Archway XT # TH9009XT with your glass hatchback. Instead you will need to use the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL with the Hatch Huggers # SA3035. To add security to this bike rack you can use the Saris Cable # SA981 and the Thule Passive Strap # TH533. If any of your bikes does not have the horizontal top tube then the Adapter Bar # SA3040 may also need...

The strap attachments are not going to cause any type of issues as they are designed to securely hook on but are rubber and vinyl-coated to keep your Santa Fe completely protected.

The only important notes Saris has regarding installation of this rack on your car is to place the lower feet into the license plate well of your car. In regards to something being switched out you may have been thinking of the Yakima FullBack 3-Bike Rack # Y02633 because with this rack the upper and lower hooks...
