It extends from 16 inches all the way out to 29 1/2 inches, so it's going to work with a wide variety of bikes.An elastic cable connects the two halves ensuring that it won't come apart. 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. We'll bring our bike up and as you can see, it's going to create an even mounting surface for our bike to hang.

Now we can just connect our straps like we would any other bike. The Bike Adapter Bar has a weight compassity of 35 lbs.That's going to complete our look at the Swagman Easy-Out Bike Adapter Bar. Part number: 64005.

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

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 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

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

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

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.

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

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

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



- 64005
by:

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

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

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!!) 20647

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

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.

I have a comfort bike and an Subaru Impreza that sits close to the ground. This combination has the front tire of my bike sitting too close for comfort to the ground when on a hill or incline. If the part that hooks to the front of the bike could push that end of the bike up a few more inches, it would be excellent. I'm currently using layers of Velcro around the bike to give it this boost. 82413


Comments

Still using Velcro, but overall, Im happy with my purchase. I have noticed a little rust on the buttons that open each end of the adapter, which is strange because its never been in the rain or gotten wet.

The moisture in the air can be enough to get these stamped metal buttons to rust a bit. A spray of oil or something like WD-40 every now and then will help slow it.

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!

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.

Very good products. I am not mechanically handy. Had product sent to my car Mechanic Scott. He said it was easy to assemble rack and the hitch went on easy. The instructions say to take off side panels on the Rogue to attach hitch. They say leave off, but my mechanic took the time to cut some of the panel so it will fit back on. bikes are very secure and the rack does not stick out to far. I ordered the swagman bike adapter for my wife's bike and it makes it much easier to fit on the rack. The reason for only 4 stars, the order dept. said I might need an extension for the hitch to rack (I did not ) and had me wondering why it was never mentioned in any of the material I read on line. My wife and I are seniors and it very easy to use, very strong and safe to travel with for long distances. 639132

I have a RAV4 with a spoiler and The bike rack fit perfectly not touching the spoiler as described. It was able to fit 3 bikes securely as described. I had a Thule before this and this bike rack far exceeds the quality and I feel comfortable and safe using it. I would highly recommend this bike rack and etrailer. 628362

  • 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...

Both have anti-sway and both tilt away from the vehicle when empty for rear cargo area access. I recommend the Thule Hitching Post because it has a higher weight capacity at 35-lbs per bike where the Yakima DoubleDown has a weight capacity of 31-lbs per bike.

This is an excellent choice for a truck mount bike rack because of the adjustability of the arms, easy to use ZipStrip straps, and integrated cable lock. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you do have a Touring model then there is a 3-bike rack that will work; the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top rack # HRF2-3. You will not be able to open the rear hatch with any trunk...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for RV Bike Carrier and Tow Bar for Towing Small Car
  • To attach a hitch mounted bike rack while flat towing a vehicle behind your motorhome, you will need a dual hitch receiver like the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544. This will allow the top raised portion of the adapter to accept an RV compatible bike rack and the lower portion will accept your tow bar. This adapter will reduce your hitch receiver's tongue weight capacity by 50% but that won't be an issue with what you are looking to do as long as you are flat towing instead...

  • 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...

  • 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. The Convoy has an 80 lb weight capacity, tilting feature to allow for rear hatch access, and comes with a hitch lock.

  • Best Option to Carry 3 Bikes On 2010 Toyota Prius
  • Out of all of the trunk mounted bike racks we have, the Thule Raceway PRO 3-Bike Rack # TH9002PRO is the least likely to damage your vehicle while in transport. If I had a bike I would put this unit on my car based my experience with this product and based on customer interactions. The Raceway features sleeves and pads to protect the trunk area. The Sure-Tight cables and hooks are coated with durable nylon, and the cables have movable sleeves that help protect your Toyota Prius paint...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Toyota Prius Eco
  • If you have a trailer hitch such as # 24966 on your 2016 Toyota Prius Eco I recommend the Kuat Beta # B202-114. This rack is aluminum so it is light weight (12.6 pounds) and easier to use and store. It comes with anti-sway cradles and built-in anti-rattle to limit the movement of the rack in the hitch. With a hitch rack you won't have to worry about anything scratching the vehicle. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you are looking for a trunk mount rack the FullBack...

  • 2-Bike Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2016 Subaru Forester with Electronic Liftgate
  • There are several 2-bike trunk mount racks that will work with the electronic liftgate option on your 2016 Subaru Forester. For a rack that is similar to the Passage you were looking at I recommend the Yakima HangOut # Y02637. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to...

  • Recommended 2 Bike Rack For 2013 Honda Fit Sport Where Trunk Mounted Racks Won't 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for RadCity Step-Thru Electric Commuter Bike
  • The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B is compatible with bikes up to 60 lbs. 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...

  • Hollywood Racks vs Yakima Trunk Mounted Bike Racks for the 2017 Kia Sorento
  • Between the Yakima HangOut, part # Y02637 and the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top, part # HRF2, I'd recommend spending the same amount you would on the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top on purchasing the security accessories with the Yakima HangOut. The HangOut's fit and ease of installation really stand out to me, especially the rubber coated mounting straps and quick attach bike cradles. These features at this price point make the HangOut an excellent value. This is doubled when you factor...

  • Hitch Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier on a 2016 Ford Transit Connect Wagon
  • I have a possible solution for you, but I don't recommend carrying your Thule bike rack with an aluminum carrier, even though its technically possible. You could use a part like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver, part # RM-077-8, which offers an 8 inch rise and would give you two 2 inch receiver hitches to work with. The top one would absolutely have to be the bike rack, while the bottom would be your cargo carrier's shank. You would then use an extender in the bottom port to clear...

  • Best Bike Rack for a Womans and Childs Bike on a 2012 Volvo XC60
  • I went out to our test fit garage and tried out a few racks with one of our childs' bikes with fenders and a women's step through mountain bike to see if we had a good fit. In testing the Saris racks like the Freedom Super Clamp, part # SA4025F, the trouble I came across was that the child's bike (A 12-inch wheel bike with 24 inch wheelbase) was a little too short for the Saris' mounting devices to reach. This means that the bike would be riding freely in the cradles and have a chance...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Best Bang for the Buck
  • The Rhino-Rack 2 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting # RRRBC045 is a nice bike rack with a tilt away feature for cargo access as well as a more sturdy design with reflectors. 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...
