Video Transcript for Thule Bike Adapter Bar Review

Hey, it's Dustin here at eTrailer.com. Today I've got the Thule bike frame adapter bar to go over with you. This product is gonna be really handy for taking multiple bikes along that normally wouldn't fit on your hanging style bike racks.As you can see, without the bike bar installed, it's certainly not easy to get our kids' bike to fit. A woman's bike, we can get to fit into place. But, if you look at it, it's just at a really awkward angle.The bike adapter bar's gonna let our bike hang at an even angle and it's gonna give us that space we need to be able to get our bike onto rack. The hooks on either end secure around your seat post and your handle bar tube, giving you the support you need.The hooks are rubber coated, so they're not going to scratch or harm your bike.

And, there's a little notch, if you can see it here. That's especially nice for the front, where it's gonna allow your handle bars to have a cradle to rest in.The adapter's also gonna be great for kids' bikes, where, again, here we've got a limited space. Some mountain bikes also have a limited space. Or, there's some bikes, such as a step through bike, where you might not have any place to secure it at all. This is gonna come in handy and allow you still use your hanging bike rack.So, with it installed on kids' bike here, you can now take your kids along for the trip.

The detent locks in place here, and it's part of the setting, but that's really just to prevent the two halves from separating. You can use it at any point in between.And, if you're picking up accessories for your bike rack, Thule also makes a six foot cable lock that will go great with any bike rack.It's really easy to install. I've got our hooks opened up here. You simply use a detent to secure. It'll go around your front, secure that down.

Then you can telescope it out to the length you need. For our kids bike here, it's gonna be the smallest setting. You might need a longer one on a beach cruiser or some kind of other bike.Then from here, just install your bike like you normally would. Get it in place, secure our anti-sway, and our top cradles.Thanks for hanging around with us and taking a look at the Thule bike adapter bar.

This is a must if you want to put a ladies bicycle on a Thule rear-mounted bike rack. It is very easy to use and very sturdy in construction. 637322

A perfect accessory to keep an alternative frame level. My wife has a Walmart Margaritaville and it fit perfectly for keeping it level and secure in the rack. 429559

We got the Thule Raceway 2 carrier and a pair of Thule adapter bars. Both seem to be well designed and solidly constructed. The carrier itself is very heavy, and I'm a little worried about the stress that it and the bikes must put on the trunk lid. I'll be interested to see if it has deformed any sheet metal or the plastic bumper covering when I remove it. I'm using the carrier on a new Dodge Dart, which is listed in the printed instructions, but just with a note to look online for updated new-model information. Unfortunately the Thule website seems to the even more outdated. It doesn't even list the Dart, and the carriers it shows are completely different models from the ones available now. But a phone call to E-trailer got me the information I needed for installation. In connection with my purchase, I consulted several different E-trailer people via phone and e-mail, and all were very helpful and professional. Delivery was extremely fast. I entered my online order late Monday afternoon, and the shipment arrived shortly after noon on Wednesday. 327077

Great product and is a must have if planning on racking your little kiddos bikes. We had to get creative with placement of this bar when using it on one of our smallest bike. Very happy with the purchase, was worth the money. 552355

This adaptor bar works as advertised. Each of the two collars at either end has a push-button release to raise and lower a segment of the collar, enabling you to capture the seat post at one end and your handlebar neck on the other. You can adjust the length of the tube as needed; though, the movement does not work as smoothly as I might like. Once in place on the bike, the adaptor fits loosely on the rack, but gravity, the rack straps, and a bungee cord or two keep everything in place. Don't expect it to fit as snugly as a bike frame that doesn't require an adaptor; this thing is merely a jury-rig to get a step-through bike frame to rest on the rack in a conventional manner. To that end it does a satisfactory job. The price is perhaps a bit high for what is otherwise a two-dollar pipe and some interlocking, plastic collars, but overall construction is sturdy enough for normal wear and tear. Keep it stored out of the weather and it should last for years. 554917

After a year the product operates just as well as it did when purchased. I use it several times a summer and dont have any major complaints. I would likely buy it again.

I purchased the Thule TH982XT bike adapter. It appears to work as advertised, however, there is no minimum length specification provided. The video claims this model will work on women's, as well as kids bikes; but when the adapter is fully reduced, it is still about 2-3" too long for my wife's bike. This causes the unit to drop down so the bar is not level, nor tight. I suppose it will still perform as intended. 554149

Per the product description, the Thule TH982XT has a span that is adjustable from 16 to 31-12 inches. The bar with the shortest span would be the Yakima TubeTop, part # Y02531
Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar
$49.00
which is adjustable from 14-12 to 31-12 inches. As long as the clamps on either end are secured and the rack is secured to the adapter bar, the bike wont go anywhere.

Kat at etrailer was very specific and knowledgeable as to what I needed for my car. The installation was done by a mechanic but I probably could have figured it out. My husband was grateful that he didn't have to install it but he was super impressed on how it looked and its sturdy strength. Haven't had a nice day in Texas since it was installed so I will report back as to how the bike rides on the rack. Overall, very impressed. Shipping was fast too! 188798

I only drove a short distance and the bar slipped. I'm very uncomfortable with the product and worried the whole time if my bike would end up on the road. Also I think the clips would eventually rub the paint off the car. 424081

Carolyn,Thank you for your review. This adapter bar adapts womens, alternative, oversize and some childrens bike frames to fit various bike racks. It does allow the alternative frame bike to hang level which could create more room for a second bike.

Today I installed the Gateway XT 2 Bike Carrier - Trunk Mount and used the Thule Bike Adapter Bar - Womens & Alt. Frame Bikes to hang two bikes on the back of my 2013 Mustang, 2 dr, with factory spoiler. I read the instructions over breakfast. It seemed pretty simple, and it was. Of course, being the first time installing the carrier it was a little slow as I figured out what went where but referring back to the instructions made the install go smoothly. A couple points of note: 1) Not too comfortable that the strap clips won't scratch the paint. They're coated but not padded. I'll probably glue a thin rubber padding to the inside of the top and bottom clips. The side clips just barely slide on and there is no room for any additional padding. 2) Discovered that I needed to secure the inside pedal upward to ensure it did not bang against the bumper. I used a mini-bungee cord but weaving the supplied tie down strap might do the trick. Not sure (yet) which is fastest/easiest method. Definitely need the tie down strap to keep the front wheel of the inside bike from beating against the car. 3) Although the Adapter Bar does hold my wife's bike level, the bar at its shortest position is a few inches too long leaving gaps at the front and back. There did not appear to be a way to lock the bar length and only the ripple straps to keep the bar from vibrating looser. Hopefully not a problem on long drives or bumpy roads. I'm attaching a couple photos from the install process that you are free to use. Sincerely, JP Hanover, PA 407339

Good sturdy tool. Would not be able to load the women's hybrid on the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Carrier without it. It's somewhat of an awkward fit and that's just because the bike is a bit of a beast. 106617

I installed this bike rack on a 2007 Rav4. The interface with the spare tire mount was simple and sturdy. The anti sway cages don't fit as in the instructions but do hold the bike very steady. I appreciate how the design allows full use of the back door w bike attached. I had some trouble with getting the lock installed on the attachment knob, better instructions ( there were none) would have saved a call to Thule with 20 min on hold. Overall it's a very well designed and stable system, I'd recommend it. 49217

Ask the Experts about this Thule Accessories and Parts

  • Which Bike Frame Adapter Bar Can be Used on 50 lb Bike
    The weight capacity for the Thule bike frame adapter bar part # TH982XT that you referenced is now 35 lbs. It may have been different at one point but currently Thule states it's 35 lbs. The best option you have will be the 50 lb Malone bike adapter part # MPG2165 since your bike is 50 lbs.

  • What are the Measurements of Thule Adapter Bar 982XT When Fully Collapsed
    I measured the adapter bar # TH982XT and when full collapsed it measures 24-1/4 inches end to end, 20 inches on center, and 15-1/2 inches from the beginning of one opening to the beginning of the other opening.

  • Recommendation for a Bike Adapter Bar for a Sierra Schwinn
    In order to transport a bike with an alternative frame such as the Schwinn Sierra, you will need a bike adapter bar, which attaches from the seat post to the handlebar stem post, allowing it to work with your bike rack. I recommend the Thule Bike Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes, # TH982XT, which extends from 16" to 31-1/2", and has a capacity of 35 lbs. I have included a link to a video review of the adapter bar far you.

  • Is There a Shorter Bike Frame Adapter Than the Thule Bike Frame Adapter Bar # TH982
    We do have some smaller adapters. Fully collapsed the Thule adapter bar is 16 inches. We have 2 adapter bars that when fully collapsed measure under 16 inches. The Yakima bar, part # Y02531, has a minimum of 14-1/2 inches. I would measure the kids bike frames to make sure adapter will fit.

  • Is a Small Amount of Play in the Thule Bike Frame Adapter Bar TH982XT Normal
    Your setup sounds just fine. The adapter bar part # TH982XT will have a bit of play in it but it will not cause any problems. The ends of the bars do have different sizes. Typically it's the steering stem that requires the wider portion but as long as you get both the seat post and stem secured either way will work fine.

  • Comparing Thule Frame Bike Adapter Bar # TH982 and the Newer # TH982XT for Bike Racks
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Thule Adapter Bar, # TH982, and the updated version, # TH982XT. There are a few key differences between each product. For the TH982XT, Thule made several upgrades including an easier pushbutton mechanism to open the hooks on each end. Each rubber molded clamp end is the same size in the newer version. And the telescoping feature now has a pushbutton stop. The old design had a round shaft that would allow the smaller end to rotate inside the larger...

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Thule Bike Adapter Bar TH982XT
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and found that the adapter bar # TH982XT has a 35 pound capacity. If your bike is right at 35 pounds it would be a good idea to reduce the weight somehow if at all possible. Other adapter bars are rated lower so the Thule model is the best option. You will also need to make sure your bike rack is rated high enough for the bike. Most racks have a total capacity and a single bike capacity. If you can tell me the rack you have I might be able to determine the...

I have included a video of a similar 4 bike rack which shows how bikes are secured for you to check out. If you plan to carry bikes with alternative frames, such as kids bikes or womens bikes, I recommend using an adapter bar, like # TH982XT. The adapter bar attaches...

  • Recommended Adapter Bar for 50 Pound Bike with 27" Handlebar to Seat Post Length
    The Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT will work great for the specs you mentioned, as it features an adjustable length of 16" to 31-1/2" (perfect for your 27" handlebar to seat post length) and a weight capacity of 50 pounds. One thing I do just recommend verifying is that you aren't exceeding the capacity of your trunk-mount rack. All of our available trunk bike racks top out at a 35 pound weight limit per bike so you may want to make sure your existing carrier is up to the task. I...

  • Measuring Childs Bike to See if Thule Frame Adapter Bar # TH982XT Will Work
    Each of the frame adapter bars will list a minimum width. You can measure the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post as seen in the accompanying photo. The distance you measure would need to be longer than the minimum distance of the frame adapter bar you choose. For instance, the minimum width of the Thule # TH982XT is 16 inches. In order for the adapter to work on your bike, the gooseneck to seat post dimension on your bike would need to be greater than 16 inches.

  • Should The Thule Frame Adapter 982XT Move When Not In Use
    Yes, there will usually be some play in the # TH982XT adapter bar and that is normal. That will not be the cause of problems. The ends of the bars do have different sizes. Typically it's the steering stem that requires the wider portion but as long as you get both the seat post and stem secured either way will work fine. If you haven't gotten a lock for your bike rack, the # TH538XT is a great option for securing your bikes once loaded.

    For your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack, # TH9042PRO, will be a great bike rack for carrying your two bikes. The Helium Aero is a very light rack that will work well for you because of the light weight capacity of the hitches available for the 2017 Bolt.

There will not be enough room in the frame for installation on a 2 arm bike rack like the Thule Roadway, # TH914XT.

I am including links to the installation instructions and to a video of the hitch being installed on a 2001 Subaru Outback Wagon. For a 3 bike hanging bike rack to fit the Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch I recommend the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63365. This bike rack will fit both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitches....

Since you said that you are not wanting something very heavy I will automatically rule out the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 because it weighs 56 lbs. The Thule Apex Swing # TH9027XT is a much lighter option that weighs in at 42 lbs.

If you are unable to use this or any other bar (and if you have to use an adapter bar) then I recommend a platform style bike rack instead. I have included a link to the options for you.

You can get either a platform-style bike rack or a hanging style bike rack.

  • Is Adapter Bar Needed to Carry Womans Bike with Thule Roadway Bike Rack
    Most likely you would need to use an adapter bar like the part # TH982XT to carry a woman's bike with the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR. If your bike's top tube has a sharp angle on it you are going to have to use the adapter bar. I attached a review video for more info on the adapter bar as well. If the angle isn't severe you wouldn't need the adapter most likely.

That is ok though. It doesn't have to be perfectly level. If you can raise the seat it would help to keep the bike level.
