The frame adapter bar was just what we needed. It goes on and off with such ease.




by:

This rack is rock solid and easy to install and uninstall




by:

Great experience dealing with your company. The adapter bar is working out perfectly. Now I can put the ladies bike and Childs bike on the rack. Thanks.




by:

If you have a step through bike, this is a must. Well built and easy to use




by:

Great addition to my vehicle and helps Me transport my bikes safely.




by:

Purchasing thru etrailer was a great experience. My order was processed promptly, my package arrived as expected, and the shipping vendor used (UPS) delivered on time and when they said it would be delivered! The product purchased is of high quality and works as expected. I’d definitely do business with etrailer again. I highly recommend etrailer.




by:

Perfect for a step through bike frame.




by:

Although we haven't used these on a long trip, I can say they work great to stabilize our kid's bikes when we went on a short trip in our community. We had no idea we were supposed to use these adapters to keep the bike safe (from falling off) and also from damaging the bikes while being transported, we now realize how much better the bikes fit and are much more secure. Because of COVID, the Thule adapters were out of stock but this brand is pretty much the same, does the same job and was less expensive.




by:

Our adapter bar for our bike rake was exactly what we needed. Alex from etrailer kept in contact with us thru the whole process to let us know when it was shipped and to make sure we received it. I would recommend etrailer for ordering any bike accessories you may need. Thanks Alex for a job well done.




by:

This product is a God send.Too bad that th bike rack I purchased didn't mention the fact that I way need to purchase a bike frame attachment. If they did it would have beeen better thank god this product is available and that etrailer had it available.




by:

The bar fits my "low entry" bike well. It's strong and supports the bike nicely on the bike rack.




by:

There's no way that I could mout all four bikes without these. They work beautifully.




by:

Works well




by:

Perfect fit to add to bike rack!




by:

Perfect for supporting our bikes on our bike rack.




by:

I have been VERY happy with the customer service from etrailer, specifically Noah!! As far as the product, it is easy to use and solves the problem of securing my step through bicycle. I have just used it once but so far so good.




by:

Bike frame adapter works great. Easy to attach to bikes and works with my bike rack great.




by:

As described!




by:

Great tool to "even out" those bike lines when carrying on the back of a vehicle.




by:

I've not had a chance to try this out yet. I'm giving 4 stars for the speed in shipping though!




by:

Great product. Just use an extra strap between your frame (under the seat) and the carrier bar for added safety. Just think... if the seat came off, your bike would be on the ground without it!




by:

Work as expected. A little cheaper than the Yakima brand.




by:

Worked perfectly and seems to be made well. Easy to use.




by:

Came quick and works great!




by:

Works well!

See what our Experts say about this SportRack Accessories and Parts

  • Is SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar, # SR0500, Needed For Womens Bikes On The SportRack # SR2603
    Yes, you will want to use the SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar, # SR0500, on bikes that will not have the horizontal bar that goes from the seat post to the handlebar post. On womens bikes and some alternative bikes there is no horizontal bar that allows you to attach the bike to the bike rack. The bike frame adapter will clip on to the bike and give you that horizontal bar.

  • Securing Bike With Alternative Frame To Platform Bike Carrier
    Most frame mount platform bike racks will fit a vareity of bike frames. If you have concerns with the crossbar height of any bikes you can check out an adapter bar like part # SR0500. This adapter attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and provides a level plane for securing the bike on a carrier.

  • Will SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar Fit SportRack Spare Tire Bike Rack
    Yes, you can use the SportRack adapter bar, # SR0500, with the SportRack spare tire mounted bike rack. However you should only need it if the bike you need to load has a step-through frame, alternatively shaped frame tubing, or the top frame bar is not long enough to fit the rotating cradles on the rack. I have included a link to a video that shows how adapter bars work. It is a different bar but the principle is the same.

  • Dimensions of Openings on SportRack Bike Adapter Bar SR0500
    I went to our warehouse and measured the two ends of the SportRack Bike Adapter Bar # SR0500. I found that the openings are 2-1/8-inch wide x 3-1/2-inch long so a bike seat post or handlebar stem up to 2-1/8-inches wide can be accommodated and will allow the bike to be carried on a standard hanging style bike carrier.

  • Do the Cradles on the SportRack Trunk Bike Carrier Move While in Transport
    I viewed the video (1:08 mark) about the SportRack 3 bike carrier # SR3152 that you referenced, and the cradles are actually pretty secure and will take a little force to move them around to the desired position. So you won't need to worry about the cradles sliding while you are driving down the road. This bike rack can carry 3 bikes and the weight capacity is 105 pounds. If you will be transporting any woman's, child's or alternative frame bikes, an adapter like # SR0500 will be a...

  • Weight Capacity of # SR0500 SportRack Frame Adapter Bar
    According to SportRack, the capacity of their Frame Adapter Bar # SR0500 is 35 lbs. I've checked with our other bike rack manufacturers such as Thule, Yakima, Kuat and Swagman among others, and have found that the 35 lb capacity is typical. Over the years, we've found that the Swagman adapter bar, part # 64005 is the easiest to use.

  • Available Bike Adapter Bars for Women's and Alternate-Frame-Design Bikes
    If you are referring to bike adapter bars like the part # SR0500 that you referenced we do offer these from several makers. All are shown on the linked page. These vary in price and in their extension length. For example, Swagman's adapter bar # 64005 is among the lowest-cost options and this one extends from 16- to 29-1/2-inches.

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2017 Ram ProMaster
    I do have an option for you but they do not make a bike rack that attaches to the rear swinging doors on your 2017 Ram ProMaster to my knowledge. The only logical way to carry bikes on this vehicle would be with a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76050 which is a custom fit that installs using pre drilled holes in the frame rails. This option is cost effective and is fairly easy to install...

  • SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar Length
    The maximum length of the SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # SR0500 is 22-5/8 inches. It falls under the category of adapter bars that are 14-5/8 inches to 29-1/4 inches so that may be where the confusion is. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also. If you are looking for a longer adapter bar you might be interested in the Yakima Top Tube Adapter bar part # Y02531. This bar extends out to 31-1/2 inches of length.

  • Which Spare Tire Bike Rack Has the Highest Weight Capacity
    I have attached a list of all our spare tire mounted bike racks for you to look through. Out of these options, the Surco Spare Tire 3 Bike Rack part # BT300 as you mentioned has the highest carrying capacity which is 35 lbs per bike. The rest of the spare tire mounted bike rack options we offer top out at 33 lb per bike. The Surco will allow for up to 3 bikes to be carried at a time, has rubber pads to protect the bike's frame, and comes with a lock. If you will be using this bike rack...

  • Will the Yakima Fullback 2 Fit a 2021 Nissan Sentra with a Factory Spoiler?
    Yes, I confirmed with Yakima that the FullBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02634 will fit your 2021 Nissan Sentra with a factory spoiler. If you have a children's bike, women's style bike, or step through bike, I recommend an adapter bar like the SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # SR0500. The adapter bar will give you a straight horizontal frame that is required to mount on the FullBack 2.

  • Will the Thule Camber 2 TH9058 Fit a 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-350 Sedan
    Yes, the Thule Camber 2 Bike Rack part # TH9058 will work perfectly on your 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-350 Sedan. There will be plenty of bumper clearance and the tilting mechanism will allow you to get into your trunk without having to remove the bike rack. The Roadway 2 has a threaded hitch pin so the rack will be stable while in transit and it comes with a lifetime warranty which Thule stands by. Please note if any of your bikes have an alternative frame you will also need the SportRack Bike...

  • 3-Bike Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack Fit on 2016 Lexus RC 300
    After doing some digging, I was able to find one option for a 3-bike trunk-mounted bike rack for your 2016 Lexus RC 300, from Yakima: - Yakima FullBack 3-Bike Rack # Y02633 The FullBack will fit your Lexus, but it is also just a really nice rack with strong anti-sway cradles and ratcheting straps which secure your bikes at three different points; this ensures your bike won't swing while you are traveling, keeping it steady to protect the bike as well as your Lexus. I do recommend adding...

  • Will Safety Straps of Curt 3-Bike Towing Rack Work on 2020 Nissan Pathfinder
    Yes, your 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is compatible and will work with the safety straps of the Curt bike rack you mentioned, which is the following part: - Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack for 2" Ball Mounts # C18013 The hooks are vinyl coated so they won't harm the finish on your Pathfinder at all. In regards to your other question, there isn't another option for a 3-bike towing rack without straps, though I'm confident you'll be happy with the Curt rack. The only other thing I wanted to mention...

  • Whats Difference Between Hollywood Racks and Sportrack Bike Frame Adapter Bar
    The only real advantage the Hollywoood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # HRBA-PRO is that it has a wider width range of 15-13/64 inches to 28-13/16 inches whereas the SportRack # SR0500 has a range of 15-1/4 inches to 22-5/8 inches. Based on that I would go with the Hollywood Racks.

  • Swinging Bike Rack to Carry Triathlon Bike
    The only potential workaround to carry your triathlon bike with the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415 would be to use a bike frame adapter bar such as # SR0500 which may work with the aero shaped seat post on your Tri bike as its hook opening is 3-1/2" long x 2-1/8" wide so you would need to ensure your seat post is smaller than those dimensions. The adapter bar telescopes from 15-1/4" to 22-5/8" so you would also need to measure to ensure the distance from your seat post to handlebar...

  • Best 4-Bike Rack To Clear Rear Doors On a 2007 Dodge Sprinter
    The only way you are going to be able to open the rear doors on your 2007 Dodge Sprinter with a bike rack installed and the bikes attached would be to use a swing-away bike rack. I saw that you were looking at four bike racks so if this is how many bikes you have then I recommend going with the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack part # SR2415 which is currently the most cost effective option that fits the bill. However, you will need the SportRack Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # SR0500 for...

  • How Much Does the SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack Weigh?
    The SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # SR2415 weighs 57 lbs. It is a really nice quality rack for the price point and the features it offers. The swing away function gives you full access to your cargo area even when the bikes are loaded. It has anti-sway cradles to prevent bike to bike contact and the cradles are adjustable to ensure proper bike spacing. This bike rack does not include the locks for additional security.

    The Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack part # TH963PRO can absolutely be used with the rear spare tire on your 1998 Isuzu Trooper and it will not break off if installed properly. This is actually exactly what this bike rack is designed for. It comes with multiple different adapters for vehicles with offset spare tires, odd bolt patterns, and different size spare tires.

    For your 2006 Honda CR-V with a spare tire I recommend using the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9027XT. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar on the carrier is 12 inches which should give you more than enough room for your spare tire. This bike rack features a swinging arm that will allow you to gain access to your cargo area just keep in mind that you will most likely not be able to open your rear door all of the way. It also has bike locks built into...

  • Will Thule TH982XT Bike Adapter Bar Work With Trek MT-201 Pedal Bike Adapter
    The Thule # TH982XT Frame Adapter Bar will work with your MT-201 Trek Pedal Trailer if the distance between the seat post and either the handlebar gooseneck or an upright portion of the handlebar on the trailer are at least 16 inches apart. If the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post is closer than 16 inches apart, the SportRack # SR0500 will work with spans as small as 15-1/4 inches. I've linked to videos where my buddies Dustin and Matt show how the adapters work.

    For your 2019 Honda Odyssey, I recommend using the Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack part # TH9025XT. The Thule Apex has a threaded hitch pin lock to secure the bike rack to the vehicle and a cable that extends out to secure the bikes to the rack. If you take a look at the seven minute mark in the attached review video you will be able to see the cable lock being used. In addition to the locks, the Thule Apex has a tilting feature that will allow you to tilt the bike rack away from the vehicle...
