We've go two loops here. Let's put the larger end around our seat post.

We'll press in on our little detent, opening it up, place it around, and then close it. Then we'll take the smaller one. Open it up just the same. We'll bring it around and close it up.Now we can get ready to load up our bike and undo our straps on our bike rack.

Product is good but it doesn't fit to my Childs 12 inches bike, disappointed because I won't be able to put my sons little bike to the rack. Giving 1 star because I was told by the Customer Care agent of Etrailer that this will allow me to load my sons bike to the hitch I ordered. 659115


Comments
The adapter bar would connect to the bike by spanning the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post. The bar will adjust in width from 22-29 inches, so if the bikes handlebar gooseneck to seat post distance is less than 22 inches, the bar will not work.

The 2 bike frame adapters are perfect for our 2 new electric bikes. Because of knee issues we ordered walk-through models, but they are hard to install on a bike carrier so these adapters make everything work together. They were well-packaged and delivered quickly to our door. etrailer.com has been a great company to work with; we've ordered other items for our boat trailer and a hanging bike rack too. I especially appreciate George from etrailer.com keeping us informed every step of the way, and it's nice that they acknowledged we are returning customers. A little thing but appreciated. We are very glad we found etrailer.com a few years back and will continue to do business with them in the future. Don't waste your time with other sites. etrailer.com will have you covered and their instructional videos are the best on the entire web! 445923

This adapter was just what I was looking for, and etrailer was the place to get it! Works great on my wife's bike for the bicycle hook in the garage, and the carrier on the car. Easy to use, and a good price, along with quick service. Ordered Monday, it arrived Friday. 89917


Comments
We could not go without it. It can be a little tricky putting it on the bike, however, its a lot easier once you put it on and take it off the bike a few times. We use it to carry my wifes bike on the carrier, and for hanging it on the hook in the garage.

I had previously purchased the swagman deluxe bike frame adapter bar to use on my bike when my husband and I took our bikes to the bike trails. When my grand daughter wanted me to pick her up from school one day to take her to the bike trails I realized that I didn't have an adapter bar for her bike so that it would fit on my bike rack so I ordered another one because I like this one so much. Now we have no problems when I need to transport both womens bikes. It arrived quickly and I had no problems. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a women's or childrens bike to transport on a bike rack. Well worth the price and very reasonable price also. 573775

I’ve arrived at a point where I visit the etrailer website first to obtain detailed information on the products I’m interested in. I then do some comparison shopping to verify Quality, Pricing and Availability. The pricing is always competitive, but their service levels are extraordinary. The communications are excellent, and the follow-up (during ordering, after ordering, and after delivery) is top notch. I’ve ordered several times now from etrailer, and most the time they have the products in inventory ready for rapid delivery. On the occasions I’ve ordered a non-stocked product, I’ve received the products before the indicated times. Their service levels have kept me as a dedicated returning customer. Thanks for all you do. 551393

Absolutely Wunderbar (wonderful)! etrailer support U.S. Service member by being one of the ONLY online vehicle equipment ordering organizations that ships to an APO address. (and I searched a ton of them) I live in Germany and work for the DoD. After researching SEVERAL sites to purchase and ship a trailer hitch, bike rack, mountain bike mount and electrical system to support it for my needs, I discovered my ONLY solution I was etrailer. Lots of others had the gear I required, but NONE of them, would ship to an APO address. Yes, the prices were just a bit higher than a few of the other sites, but without the ability to ship to an APO, the price difference was negligable. So, the GREAT things about etrailer; 1. Easy/simple ordering process 2. great seach tool capability, allowing me to find everything I needed and recommended other items I may not have thought about. 3. Simple / well layed out online order ability. 4. Amazingly quick, delivery. Within 10 days of my order being placed, I had everything in the mail. Yes, shipping cost a bit more than desired, but again, paying a bit more to ship at least allowed it to actually BE shipped to my APO. I've already had hitch and electrical installed and I'll be heading out camping this weekend, WITH my bikes in TOW and all thanks to etrailers exceptional support. Thanks ETRAILER Jason S. 52004

I bought a new car-I had a Camry and now a Honda CRV. I went to e-trailer to purchase the appropriate hitch for the CRV so I could still use the Swagman Bike Rack. What I did not count on was Swagmans ability to tilt out of the way of the CRVs lift tail gate. I was happy about this. Great rack!

It works as advertised, however, the dimensions are a little off. It says it fits 16" to 19", but, I bought it to use on my grandson's bike that measures 17" and it just barely fits. I would say it is a little large but it works for the short distance I need to transport his bike. If I were using it on a regular basis I might consider returning it because it would eventually wear off the paint. It also allows the bike to bounce a lot because it is not really attached to the bike. 173356

I bought this one because the other snap kind adaptor almost caused me an accident on the freeway. The snap was unlocked while I was carrying the bike. So..I think this one has the pins lock. It should not come off easily. The problem is..it's not easy to put it on. The front part is not bad you just turn the knob. The back part is not easy. I don't know why they just use a knob like the front!!! Another thing the bar came in 2 pcs and they can come apart so easy. When putting on the bike, it feel loose. 8247

The "Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapters" were highly recommended to me by bike enthusiasts. These are a welcome addition to our bike rack for this coming spring, summer and fall months. I've always had problems carrying my wife's mountain bike and last year my new "Townie" - these devices will end me time and difficulty with mounting our bikes and removing then removing them from our carrier. We'll spend more time enjoying our bikes! 33350

I was unsure of which alternative frame bike adapter to buy so I bought two (S64004 and S64005). After using both of these, I would ONLY buy product S64005. The S64004 product is very cumbersome to put on your bike. The tubes don't stay together and it will take you 15mins to get it put on your bike. Also, it will scratch your seat post and handlebar stem. The S64005 bike adapter is the one to buy! It is very simple and easy design. Very easy to get on and off your bike in 1min. The tubes stay together with a magnet type design. No scratches, no hassle! I would recommend buying this product for sure! (S64005!!) 20646

Seems like a nice product when you first hold it in your hands. Solid build and tough quality. It does what it is supposed to do very well, which is to give you additional clearance on odd frames, like women's specific geometry, to mount to the rack. The biggest problem is because of the needs of the design, the bike will sway quite a lot. So much so that it totally negates the benefit of the swagman XP standard racks rock solid mounting. I had to strap down the bike to ensure the bike doesn't sway so much. It may be a necessary evil... but the jury is out as I just got it and only got 3.5 hours of driving with it. 23802

This thing is cool. The other night I was researching hitches and bike racks when I realized my wife's bike was not going to fit on any rack. So I was initially disappointed, then I came across this thing. I got it earlier this week and opened it tonight (by the way, I ordered Sunday night, had two or three messages from etrailer by Monday before I woke up, the last of which was telling me my order shipped - pretty awesome). It fit right on her bike and gave me a way to hang it on the rack in the garage and the rack on the car. Works great. I was concerned it would not be sturdy, but it is quite strong. Not worried about heading down the road next weekend with it. 21775

Seems to work okay for our ladies bike but to secure it onto the horizontal bike rack couplings, it has square ends on both sides of the housing and the couplings accommodate a round bar. I will work, just not the right fit. 541112

Comments
After a year, the product is still working great. Because they are in the weather so much, a little light lube was used to keep the mechanisms working freely, but theres no deterioration of product function. These make loading multiple bikes a pleasure now rather than a puzzle.

  • Bike Adapter Bar With Tension
    Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 and Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005 will fit loosely on the bike until the bike is placed on a hanging style bike rack # Y02463. These adapters have tension pushing out on them both ways. At that point gravity pulling the bike down, and the bike rack arms holding the adapter bar up, will keep it secure.

I have attached links to a video review and demonstration of this adapter bar for you to take a look at. If you need a recommendation on a Thule bike rack, let me know and I'd be happy to help.

  • Carrying a Womens and 2 Childrens Bikes on a 2013 Lexus RX 450h
    Most 16 inch children's bikes and women's bikes need an adapter bar, like the Swagman # 64005, to be able to carry them level on a hanging bike rack. For that long of a trip I definitely recommend the bikes be as level as possible. The solution is often to use a wheel mount platform rack instead; however, they only fit as small as 20 inch wheels. With that being said sometimes the small bikes do fit hanging bike racks. It depends on how much space there is for the arms to fit under...

Both the discontinued Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack and the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack # TH9042PRO will fit and work well on your vehicle.

    It sounds like you need a frame adapter bar, like part # 64005. The adapter bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post tube. Once in place, the bar offers a more level mounting surface for the bike rack, that will allow the bike to be carried so it's more level, providing more ground clearance. The adapter bars come in handy for carry women's bikes with out top tubes, or for bikes with top tubes that are too short or sharply angled to be easily carried on...

  • Is it Necessary to use a Bike Rack Adapter Bar for Mountain Bikes
    It is not always necessary to use an adapter bar. The adapter bar has two main tasks: 1. Provide a good attachment point for the cradles on the rack 2. Level the bikes so that one of side of the rack is not bearing much more weight than the other. If you can keep the weight balanced without it and have room to get the bike on the rack, an adapter may not be necessary. It is always a good idea to use an adapter to keep the bikes level, but may not always be necessary.

    Many kids bikes nowadays have more elliptical frames that do necessitate an adapter bar (which is the way my son's bike is) or if the bikes are small enough they won't fit around the bike rack arms. In both cases an adapter bar is recommended especially on women's bike frames so that they will fit more level on the bike rack. For an adapter bar I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005.

    It is highly recommended to use a bike adapter bar if you are carrying any women's, children's or alternative framed bikes without the top horizontal cross tube. This is because most bike racks, like the Yakima HangOut 3 # Y02638, use the horizontal cross tube to mount the bikes to the bike rack.

    I agree that Thule makes great products, but the best bike rack that I think will meet your needs is the Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Rack, # Y02469, because it will give you the four bike capacity you are looking for and it is a quality rack that will last years by a quality brand in Yakima. The value and functionality provided by Yakima is going to be very similar to Thule - think of comparing Nike and Adidas. Compared to a hanging rack, a platform rack will provide easier loading of bikes....

  • Is Frame Adapter Bar Needed for Fuji 2.3 Womens Bike on Thule Doubletrack
    The frame hooks for the Thule Doubletrack will ratchet down pretty far, but if your Fuji has a step through frame with a single down tube welded to the bottom bracket, a frame adapter bar would be necessary to carry the bike on the rack. If the frame is more conventional like what's shown in the provided photo, it should work fine without an adapter bar. We've found that the Swagman DLX frame adapter bar, part # 64005 is both inexpensive and very easy to use.

  • Using Swagman DLX Adapter Bar 64005 With Bike Rack on 24 Foot Travel Trailer
    It is acceptable to use the Swagman # 64005 adapter on your # S64940 Swagman XP bike rack, but you might not need it. The cradles of the # S64940 rack can be rotated so they're at an angle, allowing you to clamp the rack onto the downtube of a women's bike so it's carried level.

  • Recommended Bike Frame Adapter Bar To Carry Two 20 Inch Mountain Bikes on Yakima SwingDaddy #
    Any of the bike adapter bars we offer should work for your needs. The Swagman # 64005 for instance can telescope between 16 to 29-1/2 inches. As long as the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post tube falls in that range, the adapter bar would work great for you. I've linked to a product demonstration video for the adapter bar.

  • Is a Bike Adapter Bar Needed to Load a Womens Bike on a Trunk Mount Bike Rack
    If your bike does not have the top horizontal frame tube, then you will need a bike adapter bar, like part # 64005, to load your bike on any of the trunk mount bike racks listed to fit your 2003 Pontiac Sunfire coupe. There are a few bike racks that are designed to prevent the need of a bike adapter bar, but those particular styles are not available in the trunk mount style. I have attached a link to all of the trunk mount bike racks listed to fit your Sunfire. The Thule Raceway...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Honda Pilot Carrying a Womens and Mans Bike
    The most popular bike we sell with other owners of 2011 Honda Pilots is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack Part # S64670. This is a platform style bike rack would do an excellent job carrying your Electra Womens cruiser bike and a men's road bike so I would also recommend it for you. I attached a review video that show this rack being demoed on a very similar Pilot as yours. This rack has a 70 lb capacity with a 35 lbs per bike limit.

  • Bike Carrying Options for 2012 Mini Countryman
    To carry bikes on your 2012 Mini Countryman, you'd need to either use a hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack, or you'll need to install a roof rack and carry your bikes on the roof. None of our bike rack manufacturers offer a trunk mount bike rack that is compatible with your vehicle. As long as your Countryman isn't a John Cooper Works model, you could install the Curt # C11333 hitch. You'd then install a Class I compatible bike rack in the hitch. I'd recommend the Swagman Trailhead,...
