The Swagman Trailhead # S63360 (And any hanging bike rack for that matter) will generally need a frame adapter bar for bikes that do not have a horizontal top cross tube like a traditional men's bike does. The same often goes for children's bikes.

The Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 is an adapter bar that will help you. It connects from the seat post to the handlebar stem to create that horizontal mounting point to carry bikes level on a hanging rack.

Another option is a platform rack. They tend to cost more and be heavier but that's the trade off for a more stable and easier to load rack. The Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3000 is a great option that holds the bikes by the wheels so you don't have to worry about the shape of the bikes's frames.
