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

Works as designed but it does not seem to have a way of locking it onto the bike for theft security. 116258

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!

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

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’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

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

The adapter doesn't fit as well on my particular bike frame, so it's a little tricky to get the bike on and off the bike rack. However, it does the job. 573154



- 64005

The frame adapter is certainly substantial but I would like to see the clasping arrangement a little more secure. I haven't used it yet so the proof will be in the pudding! 554999



- 64005
by:

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

Product works great for keeping bikes level on rack. Bought one for my men's bike too so I can reduce the wear and tear on the top tube. 107490


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.

Thule I purchased Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount.–SEPT. 3rd 2019 I hauled my bikes over some of the toughest roads in NY to see how well the Raceway Pro-2 would hold up. I kept looking out of my rearview mirror to make sure our bikes were not laying in the road or another car's windshield but I had to know if the videos and reviews were true. I gave the Raceway Pro 2-BIKE RACK 5 stars since it behaved as advertised. I did not realize how heavy the bike rack was but it is a well-constructed product.  Since gaining confidence in the stability /strength of the Raceway Pro I have taken my bikes on the highway, over bumpy roads with potholes and the bikes held steady and did not sway. I can also say the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar I purchased for my wife’s bike worked as advertised. With the bike key locking method we felt safe enough to leave the bikes locked in a parking lot while we had breakfast.  I recommend Raceway Pro for those who enjoy bicycle riding and want their bikes to be secure while traveling. I would suggest however to those who are frequent bike riders to purchase additional replacement stretch bands because I don’t know the strength of the bands long term.  It’s always good to have a spare should a rubber band snaps and you don’t have a spare.  Just a precaution.  Safe travels  705795

This bar makes it easy to get my vintage step-through frame women's bike up on my Inno bike rack. I like the buttons that you have to press to lock/unlock so I know the hooks will not open up on their own. I wish both of the hooks opened up to the side instead of just one so it would be easier to navigate around all of my brake cables, etc. on my older bike. Would purchase again! 697215

  • Why is the Swagman XC Not Okay to Use With an RV
  • The reason why some bike racks and cargo carriers are rated for use at the rear of an RV or Trailer and others are not has to do with the fact that the ride is a lot more rough. Since there is more distance from the rear axle to the trailer hitch receiver on an RV or Trailer as opposed to a passenger vehicle, there is a lot more play. Because of this, manufacturers will test and approve which bike racks or cargo carriers can be used at the back of an RV or Trailer. The Swagman XC 2-Bike...

For women's bikes, or any alternative frames that don't have the horizontal cross tube, you can use an adapter bar like the Swagman Deluxe, part # 64005. It connects to the seat post and the handle bar stem to create a level place to hang the bikes. Also, to secure the bikes to the rack add...

The Saris Bones is a great option because of it's anti-sway cradles that secure the bikes to the rack.

Unfortunately your bike is just over that, so I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 which is compatible with bikes up to 65 lbs and will not require any adapter bar. This will fully secure your bike by the frame and allow you to easily load your bike as well. It has many features the other bike carriers do not, so I've attached...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Honda Odyssey without a Trailer Hitch or Roof Rack
  • If you do not wish to add a trailer hitch or roof rack to your 2011 Honda Odyssey I recommend the Hollywood racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes or # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. You do not have to have a roof rack of any kind for these racks to work. I have linked a couple of videos for these racks for you. If you don't mind adding a trailer hitch you could install # 75270 and use a hitch mount bike rack such as the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465. This bike rack will allow you to swing the...

  • Recommended 2 Bike Rack For 2013 Honda Fit Sport Where Trunk Mounted Racks Wont Fit
  • I reached out to my contact at Thule and they confirmed they do not have any fits for your 2013 Honda Fit Sport Model. They said the reason is the factory spoiler is not strong enough to support the straps. All of our manufacturers exclude the Sport model for this reason. My recommendation is to use the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24826 and then use the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # TH990XT which is a confirmed fit.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • I did some checking and there are some trunk mount bike racks that you can use on your leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback. For a 2-bike rack you can use either the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 or the FullBack # Y02634. For 3 bikes the HalfBack model is # Y02635 and the FullBack model is # Y02633. These racks will work even if the vehicle has a rear spoiler at the top of the hatch because the rack is positioned in such a way as to not put any stress on the spoiler. I included a picture...

  • Carrying a Womens Bike on the Thule Raceway PRO Trunk Mount Rack
  • It can be difficult to carry a women's bike on hanging style bike racks, like the Thule Raceway PRO # TH9001PRO. If you can get the arms inside the frame the bikes sit very awkward and are difficult to get on and off. The solution is a bike frame adapter bar. The bar installs between the seat post and the handlebar stem creating a horizontal bar just like a typical men's bike has. Pretty much every bike rack manufacturer offers one and I've linked our complete selection. I favor...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2012 Toyota Prius V Compatible with Thule 4 Bike Rack
  • The Combo Bar 12" with 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-11 will work with a 4 bike rack for your vehicle if you have proper mounting and welding done. My recommendation is to instead use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver 2" # 306-X7192 which is confirmed to fit. You can then use the Thule Hitching Post # TH934XTR or any of the other Thule 4 bike racks I've linked. If the rack you choose does not come with locks, I recommend the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack to Clear Spare Tire on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
  • There are many hitch-mounted bike rack options for the Class II Trailer Hitch on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. For a hanging rack, I recommend the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack # S63360. This rack can hold up to 2 bikes of 35 pounds each. Anti-sway cradles will secure your bikes to the rack using durable rubber straps. The rack can tilt away from the vehicle after the bikes are unloaded for easy rear cargo access. The distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to...

  • For your 2018 Radcity Step-Thru Electric Commuter Bike, the best option we have for you is the Rola Convoy 1 Bike Platform Rack part # 59308 with the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
  • Thule currently doesn't have any trunk mounted bike racks compatible with 2018 and 2019 models of Subaru Crosstrek so I don't recommend # TH9006XT. They determined a fit issue. My recommendation for a similar rack that is a confirmed fit is the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02637. This is a great option if you won't have a spoiler. If you will have a spoiler then I instead recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers...

  • Using a Thule T2 Bike Rack Behind a Travel Trailer
  • Whether or not a bike rack is able to be used behind an RV or trailer is determined by a manufacturer. RV and trailer compatible bike racks tend to be more compact, and made of stronger components than traditional racks to help deal with the increased amount of force that the location of the hitch on a travel trailer in relation to its rear axle applies to the rack. Thule doesn't recommend any of their bike racks be used behind RVs or trailers. Generally, RV compatible racks are either...

  • Compatibility of Thule DoubleTrack Pro 2 Bike Rack with Womens Schwinn Suburban Bike
  • The Thule DoubleTrack Pro 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # TH9054 will be adjustable to work with all 3 of the bikes you mentioned. The Schwinn Suburban will work as is with the bike carrier if you connect the stabilizer to the seat support tube of the frame. You may also choose to use a bike adapter bar like # 64005. This will create a top frame rail for a higher positioned connection for greater stability. Unfortunately that will only allow you to lock...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with Spoiler
  • I'm assuming the photo attached is your Crosstrek and because of the spoiler, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2. This is specifically made for vehicles like yours to avoid contact and damage to a spoiler. This is a very versatile and adjustable bike rack to meet your needs. I do recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005 as well as the Softride # SR18679 to secure your front wheel to...

  • Best 2 Bike Carrier for a Jayco 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For starters, bike racks used on the back of a 5th wheel trailer must be rated for this use as they will experience more stress in comparison to a bike rack used on the back of a vehicle. This has to do with the movement associated with the carrier being located father away from the rear axle. The best platform style bike rack we have for a 5th wheel trailer is the Swagman Escapee 2-Bike Platform Rack part # S64693. The Escapee was actually designed specifically for use on the back...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2016 Subaru Forester
  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36523 does fit your 2016 Subaru Forester and it is a great option for carrying bikes. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. In that video you will notice that we measured 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper. The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR, nice choice by the way, will extend out far enough to easily clear the bumper. It measures 13-1/2 inches from the center of its hitch pin hole to the...

  • Which Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Subaru Forester has the Best Ground Clearance
  • Hidden Hitch as a brand is being phased out but the same company makes Draw-Tite hitches. So for your 2017 Subaru Forester the Draw-Tite Class III hitch is # 75876. When we installed this hitch on a 2017 Subaru Forester, see video link, it measured 13-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. So to the bottom of the receiver that distance would be approximately 11-1/2 inches. The other Class III option is Curt hitch # C13144. When we installed it the distance from...

  • Difference Between Yakima HalfBack and Yakima FullBack Trunk Mount Bike Racks
  • The real difference between the Yakima HalfBack, 2-bike # Y02636 and 3-bike # Y02635, and the FullBack, 2-bike # Y02634 and 3-bike # Y02633, is that the FullBack has locks. The FullBack includes an integrated cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack. Then there's also an included security cable that helps keep the rack secured to your Volvo. Of course you can add locks to the HalfBack. The Yakima security strap is part # Y02623 and the integrated cable lock is part # 8880572. Also...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Best Bang for the Buck

It doesn't come with any locks, but does come with an anti-rattle pin. This is a very nice bike carrier for the cost and I think you will really like it. Another option you may also like is the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # 59400. This carrier comes with the integrated cable lock...

The stabilizer strap was devised as an effective way of minimizing movement and travel of the bike rack while driving in addition to supporting or assisting the weight of a heavier load.
