I believe you are looking at the Allen Sports bike carriers which we do not carry. But I went to their website and found that they do not provide the information that you are looking for.

I do know the type of bike frame you are talking about though and it is not likely going to fit the cradles of the Allen bike carrier properly. What you need is a bike adapter bar # 64005.

On hanging style bike carriers, bikes with alternative frames would need an adapter bar to be able to fit on the carrier. This will allow you load the bike and to carry it more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
