Adapter Bar For Bike Rack Carrying A Huffy 3 Speed Cruiser On A 2008 Subaru Forester


Greetings, My vehicle is a no frills 2008 Subaru Forester. My bike is OLD. Also no frills. Purchased new about 1981 or 82. Its a Huffy 3 speed cruiser type womans bike with handlebar brakes. I did have it modified to add coaster brakes years ago, but all else is original. Do you anticipate i need a bike frame adapter bar to make it fit? Budget is tight, dont want to spend any unnecessary funds. Thank you kindly,


Expert Reply:

A key consideration here is what kind of bike rack you are using on your 2008 Subaru Forester. An adapter bar like the Malone Bike Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # MPG2165 is a simple choice for hanging style bike racks that either mount in your hitch (like the pictured example) or strap onto your trunk/back of your hatch. A good hitch mounted bike rack for consideration is the Curt 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # C18029 and for a trunk mount, the Hollywood Racks Baja 2 Bike Carrier # HRB2.
