Video Transcript for Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar Review

Today we're going to be reviewing the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, Part number Y02531. This is going to give you the horizontal bar needed to mount women's or other non-traditional bike frames onto hanging style bike racks. It's easy to retract and extend by simply lightly twisting and pulling apart or twisting and pushing together. It's easy to open and close the clamps by pressing the gold button down and rotating it, which will then allow you to hook it around your seat post and your handle bars. Closing them is as easy as spinning it around until it clicks into place. The overall length of the tube top adapter, outer edge to outer edge, comes right to 24 inches. The inside measurements from here to here are going to measure about 14 and a quarter inches. We'll extend it and repeat those measurements that we have that for reference also.

Outer edge to outer edge is right at 31 and a half inches. Inside to inside, we're going to measure 22 and a half inches. The tube top adapter bar is designed to match most bike frames. Giving you the diameter of the smaller tube is one and 1/8th of an inch. The larger tube is one and 3/8th of an inch. So that you can verify this is going to be a good fit for your application at home, we'll grab the distance between the length and the width for the bigger clamp. The length is going to be about 4 and a quarter.

The wide comes to 2 and an eighth. We'll grab the smaller measurement also, which is about 3 and 3/4 and one and a half inches in width. We'll show you the bike adapter bar on a variety of different bike frames. We'll get them loaded on top of the rack that we can see how they work getting installed. With it loaded up here, we'll go ahead and strap it down. As you can see, our adapter bar works well with our mountain bike with a slightly slanted frame.

Next, we'll move to the kids' bike, which has much more of a slanted frame on it. We also have a bike here with a non-traditional drop frame style. As you can see, the adapter bar is definitely necessary for loading this type of bike onto a hanging bike rack. We've installed the adapter bar in several different frame types. We started with our mountain bike, which has a slightly slanted frame. Next, we used our kids' bike, which, as you can see, has much more of a slant to it. Now, we've installed it on a bike with an alternative style frame.

The tube top adapter bar installs quickly and easily. Extending the bar, and then pressing the button to open up the clamps is going to allow you to fit it around the seat post and the handle bar post. You'll then want to bring it together and close your clamps. With the adapter bar installed on our women's bike, we'll load it onto our bike rack. All that's left to do is strap it down and we're ready to hit the road. The tube top adapter has a 45 pound weight capacity. It attaches to the bike with the molded collars. These collars are gentle on the bike stem and offer a rubber coating to help prevent any damage to your bike. Works with dual arm, single arm, and platform bike racks that mount to a hitch, trunk, or spare tire. The tube top adapter also features a lifetime warranty. Now, we can take it out and show you what it's going to look like in action through our test course. We'll take it through the slalom, which show the side to side action. Our alternating bumps will give you the twisting motion. The solid bumps will give you the up and down movement of the bikes. That completes today's review of the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, Part number Y02531. .

Very well constructed, fits frame somewhat loosely, does not allow much adjustment to center the weight on the hitch for our Scott ebikes. 711413

Works well, but the arm that swings up for either the handlebars or seat interferes with my bike carrier cradle. If they narrowed the tube where the mechanism is hinged it may fit the cradle better. 652737

Works as advertised. Indent pins can be difficult to use and expect rust after using in the rain. 662349

Blech. Waste of money. Didn't fit any of our bikes no matter how I manipulated the things. Very narrow range of usefulness. I asked other owners I saw in the parking lot and heard the same thing. Make sure it fits YOUR bike before you buy. Get thee to a bike shop. Good luck. 292334

The price, and product were great. Delivery was prompt. The bike bar adapter works great, the only issue was when using the front of the bar on the handlebar stem the front wheel was to close to the ground when mounted on the bike rack, but this was resolved by placing the front of the bar on the top of the fork tube of the frame, the extra 1 1/2" gained by doing this leveled ot the bike on the rack, and gave me the clearance needed. The bike is a 1947 Monark Super Deluxe womens bike, with a tank, and dual springer front end. Thanks for a great product !! Sincerly, Larry Wildes 14538

After a consult with an eTrailer rep, I finally settled on the Saris. I used this for a 3 hour trip (6 hours round trip) with 3 bikes on a lexus NX200T. The video does not show that you need to remove a piece for certain tow hitches. Once I figured that out, it was very easy to assemble. The bikes remained stable and did not get scratched. The locking mechanism added greater stability for the bikes and security when we stopped at rest stops. Remember to buy a cross bar add on if the bike does not have one. I had 2 bikes with the add on, and one without. All 3 bikes remained secure for the trip 292087

Etrailer.com not only had the best price for the adapter bar I was looking for, but they did not gouge me on shipping costs. After ordering you get emails at every stage, than the best of all, I received an email stating they bumped my order from standard to priority at no additional charges. I will check etrailer.com in the future for purchases, outstanding customer service and delivery. 104451

Prior to purchasing the bike rack, we loaded our bikes in the back of our CRV. We had not purchased a rack before as we were told that there weren't any racks that would fit a CRV. That's where etrailer.com came in - I went on line and found the site and the rest is history. The bike rack came quickly and with a few adjustments, it was soon on the back of the CRV. Unfortunately, I did not realize that a female bike required an adapter bar so we were unable to use the rack with both bikes until the second order arrived with the adapter enclosed. Friendly and prompt communication from etrailer.com on both orders. I definitely recommend purchasing this product from etrailer.com - just don't forget a Tube Top adapter if one of your two bikes is for a woman! 138237

Hi, is your Honda CRV a 2014 5door?How many stabilizing straps do you have?Thank you!Janet
-- comment by: Janet - 07/08/2014

We looked up Julie's order and it is a 2005 Honda CR-V. The bike rack is a Yakima SpareTime, it bolts to the spare tire mount so there are no straps used to secure the rack to the vehicle. Each bike is held on with 3 straps, 2 across the top tube to secure the bike to the rack and 1 around the seat post to keep the bike from swinging. As you know, your 2014 doesn't have the rear mounted spare, so your bike rack options are roof, hitch or trunk/hatch mounted. I've added a link to all the trunk racks we have that will fit your CR-V, if you're interested in roof or hitch mounte instead, let me know.

I received the Yakima bike rack from etrailer for my Jeep. I received it quickly and found it easy to attach. I then determined that since I have a woman's/mountain bike I needed the tube top adapter. I do wish I would have known that so I could have ordered everything at the same time. I now have it all and everything works great! 129602

  • Recommended Best Womens Bike Carrier Versus Hanging Bike Carrier
    The Yakima HangOut 3 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02638 and similar hanging style racks are not ideal for women's bikes simply due to the frame design without a top frame tube. Because of this, manufacturers came up with the adapter bar like the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 to fit under the seat and connect to the handlebars creating that top frame tube to allow you to transport the bike level and with necessary ground clearance. If you go with a hanging style...

    Thanks for the picture of your Trek Verve 3. From that I can tell that a bike frame adapter bar part # UB01 would easily fit and work well. This attaches around the seat post and then to the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for a trunk mounted bike rack like the Yakima FullBack 2 part # Y02634 which is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe. I recommend this bike rack because it is easy to install/remove, easy to load/unload, comes with locks for the rack and...

This bike rack is a great value for the quality and features that it has and it includes an integrated locking cable. Each of these bike racks can carry 4 bikes, include anti-sway cradles and have anti-rattle hitch pins to reduce the movement of the bike rack and bikes when driving....

  • Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Small Kids Bikes on a Thule Apex 5 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    Like you have said, the smallest adapter bars are going to be 14-1/2 inches at their shortest length so that is not going to be small enough for the 14 inches you will need. You may have to attach the adapter in an alternate location such as one end around the seat post and the other end higher up on the handle bars if possible. Or you may have to raise the seat and/or handle bars up so they are further apart to get the adapters to fit. If nothing you do allows the adapter to fit then...

  • Is Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar Supposed to Fit Loosely on a Bike
    Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 will fit loosely on the bike until the bike is placed on a hanging style bike rack. At that point gravity pulling the bike down, and the bike rack arms holding the adapter bar up, will keep it secure. So it doesn't sound like there is a problem with the one you have. I would do a test run with it on the bike and the bike loaded on the rack. Just a low speed, around the neighborhood type of test. If you find that the adapter is behaving oddly let me know.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Bike Rack Haibike 5.0
    My top recommendation for heavy electric bikes is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450Z-E. This rack was specifically designed for heavy electric bikes. It has a capacity of 80 pounds per bike, fits a 2 inch hitch, and holds the bikes at the frames so the fender won't be an issue. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. The other option is the Thule EasyFold # TH903202. This rack is rated for 65 pounds per bike and also holds the bikes at the frames. What sets this...

    The Yakima Tube Top, part # Y02531, and all similar bike adapter bars cannot support the weight of your 60-lb electric bike on a hanging style rack. No trunk racks can handle this weight either. With this being the case Thule's EasyFold 2 Bike Hitch Rack # TH903202, along with either a 1-1/4-inch or 2-inch hitch on your vehicle, will let you avoid needing extra adapter parts and be a much safer way to transport your bikes.

  • Will a 16 Inch Kids Bike Fit on the Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount Bike Rack on a 2015 Mazda CX-5
    Because the frame of a 16 inch bike is so small you will likely need to use a bike adapter bar such as # Y02531 to mount it on the Yakima HalfBack # Y02635 for 3 bikes or # Y02636 for 2 bikes. I have linked videos on the adapter bar and HalfBack for you.

  • Does the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, # Y02531, Have a Locking Feature
    The Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, # Y02531, does not have a locking feature. It will remain at the length you set it to and will not extend or retract because it will be clamped around the seat and handle bars posts on a bike. I recommend a locking cable to secure the bike to the rack. You can use Yakima Cable Lock, # Y07233. I have included links to the installation details and a video review of the adapter bar for you to view.

    A good place to start for a 4-bike hitch rack for your 2011 Honda Pilot would be the Yakima DoubleDown 4 bike rack, part # Y02424. This bike rack has a weight capacity of 120lbs and has a tilting feature that allows you to lower the rack away from the vehicle for access to your rear cargo area. I am including a link to a video review of the Yakima bike rack. Since you will be transporting womens and childrens bikes I would recommend to get a Yakima bike adapter, part # Y02531 for each...

For best compatibility, it is a good idea to stick with products that are made by the same manufacturer. Some small and angled bike frames can be difficult to load on bike racks.

  • How to Determine the Weight Capacity of the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar
    The weight capacity of the Yakima Tube Top bike adapter bar, # Y02531, is determined by the weight capacity of the bike rack you are using. Most bike racks are limited to 30 or 35 lbs per bike and if you are carrying a 40 pound bike rack on a 2 bike rack that has a capacity of 35 lbs per bike you would need to position the heavier bike closer to the vehicle and make sure that the second bike does not cause you to exceed the capacity of the rack. According to Yakima, as long as you...

Capacities given usually match the per-bike capacity of the racks from the same manufacturer. Yakima is the oddball but it works out. At least the adapter bars will only be on the bikes when they...

    The Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 can be used on your bike if it has the quick release seat adjustment. We actually have a picture of us installing it this way on one of our bikes! (see attached photo) Really the only time this would be an issue is if your quick release lever wasn't very reliable. If you would like to replace it with a nut and bolts anyways just for peace of mind then there is no harm in that either.

    There is always a possibility of scratches occurring on a bike when using an adapter bar such as # Y02531. However most hanging racks have anti-sway cradles to limit movement of the bikes during travel. I use a similar bar and have not had any problems.
