Bike Frame Adapter Bar

Swagman Deluxe Adapter Bar Easy InstallationSwagman Deluxe Adapter Bar Easy Installation

This adapter bar allows you to carry a bike with a sloping top tube or step-through frame on your bike rack. It fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to ensure level transport on your hanging-style bike rack. It also creates a top tube so you can carry your bike on a frame-mount platform-style rack. The spring-loaded bar telescopes to fit multiple frame sizes, and it can be used with no-rise bike stems.

Easy Installation

Swagman Deluxe Adapter Bar Vinyl Collars

To install the adapter bar simply open the hooks with the integrated release buttons, wrap one hook around your handlebar stem post and the other around your seat post, and close the hooks. The hooks open outward - parallel with the bar - to help you avoid interference from the seat and handlebars during installation. The bar has red "Up" indicators on each end to help prevent incorrect installation. The hooks have a vinyl coating that won't scratch or scuff your bikes' paint.

This bar works great. Use it on the Townie Electra while on the Swagman Dispatch bike rack behind the camper.



Still working great. Several camping trips and the bar helps keep the bike secure.


I'm very happy with my Swagman bike rack, fat tire cradles and the frame adaptors. Received them today and got everything set up for our Ebikes. Lauren gave me great customer service and was very in depth with her explanations of all my products she helped me order. It's nice to talk to someone that knows their product line that they sell. KUDOS!!! to Lauren.



Working great no problems. Ive recommended the swagman bike rack and Etrailer to many people


The rack and the bike frame adapter works awesome. Buy something good the first time and you’ll never need another one. Very sturdy product. I have a full size Chevy truck and if you mount a single bike on the outside position you can put the tailgate down without tilting it. Very impressed with that. Assembly was pretty straightforward.


Could not put my bike on the rack without the frame adapter. Easy to use and convenient.



A great solution!


Highly recommend the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack! I have been using mine regularly during the last year and have had no issues. It's easy to attach and remove from my Honda CR-V. It's very sturdy and doesn't shift or 'bounce' around when I'm driving.



A year later and I am still loving the Swagman Chinook bike rack! No issues and I use it a few times a week.


I had bought 2 electric bikes with a step through frame. The Hollywood two bike rack with the center locking device doesn't extend low enough. This adapter works perfectly. Just push a release button on each end to attach below your seat and handlebars and the internal spring adjusts to your bike and the lock draws the bike down and locked into the tire wells.


I was looking for something to help hang my wife's bike on a car bike rack. The girls style bike is hard to hang properly if at all. I found this adapter bar on etrailer. I ordered it and wow.....Works nice, just what I needed.
The service from trailer IS top notch. I was told personally when my order would arrive @ wanting to use it for a vacation very soon. I will do business again with trailer. Thank you.


We finally got a chance to use this on the back of our travel trailer with our e-bikes. They fit on it easily and were very stable. Didn't appear to be a lot of bouncing. Highly recommend!


This adapter fit my bike very well. The installation was easy


the bike rack works great i would reamend it to anyone looking for one thank you for a good product


This was useless. It expands to reach between the seat post and steering head, but it doesn't get tight enough to enable the bike carrier to secure to it. And there was no way to lock it in place. Had to return it.


Swagman frame adapter fits and works well. Make sure you measure and order the correct size. Very easy to use with my two Lectric ebikes. I have model 2.0 with the step through frame


Works perfectly to hold my front entry bike on my Mitsubishi Outlander. Feels safe and it is easy to use. I recommend this product


Thule I purchased Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount.–SEPT. 3rd 2019 I hauled my bikes over some of the toughest roads in NY to see how well the Raceway Pro-2 would hold up. I kept looking out of my rearview mirror to make sure our bikes were not laying in the road or another car's windshield but I had to know if the videos and reviews were true. I gave the Raceway Pro 2-BIKE RACK 5 stars since it behaved as advertised. I did not realize how heavy the bike rack was but it is a well-constructed product.  Since gaining confidence in the stability /strength of the Raceway Pro I have taken my bikes on the highway, over bumpy roads with potholes and the bikes held steady and did not sway. I can also say the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar I purchased for my wife’s bike worked as advertised. With the bike key locking method we felt safe enough to leave the bikes locked in a parking lot while we had breakfast.  I recommend Raceway Pro for those who enjoy bicycle riding and want their bikes to be secure while traveling. I would suggest however to those who are frequent bike riders to purchase additional replacement stretch bands because I don’t know the strength of the bands long term.  It’s always good to have a spare should a rubber band snaps and you don’t have a spare.  Just a precaution.  Safe travels 


I’m really happy with my new Draw-Tite hitch and Swagman bike rack! They work really well on my 2010 Honda Fit, and look really sleek and stylish, too. I had my local car service place put them on them for me, and the guys found them very easy to install. I’ll be carrying just one bike, so I put on just one set of tire holders, and they’re on the outer side so I can load and unload the bike without having to lift it around the backside of the mast – so easy! I also got a Swagman adapter bar (thanks for the suggestion, Alexis!) to work with the curvy step-through frame, and it’s very easy to click into place. I’m several miles away from nice safe bike trails, and I’m really enjoying how this new setup helps me go there so I can ride my new bike in a good place.


Customer service was excellent. Tiffani was a great source of information and answered all my questions. Installed the rack and test drove it to the mail box. Looks solid. Will be traveling cross country soon.

Thanks Tiffany!


Giving it 5 stars now that it works with my wife's bike on the rack. Will update if I incur any issues on our drive to vacation.



Still works great. No complaints and I would recommend to others.


This is my third order from etrailer, and it was an excellent experience as were the previous orders. The order was started within hours of my placing it, and the estimation of delivery time was perfect. They have a wonderful order tracking system that allowed me to see the status/location of my order in real time. Nice communications, excellent follow through, and good prices. I'll be back.


I used the bike rack for the first time today drive over 100 Miles. The installation video tutorial was excellent and helped me in installing it on my vehicle. 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.


Great product. No problems...

C L.


This rack has worked well. It mounts to my vehicle with relative ease and I have had no problems with it.


Works as designed, easy to use.


Very pleased with this product it was shipped very quickly and Packing was excellent. Great job.


This product is essential for folding ebikes and works really well, it is very easy to use and will fit any size bike.








We love the bike rack. Very well built. We had a girls bike that we also got the adapter bar to fit the rack. Very sturdy & well built also. Couldn't be happier with the rack & the service we had ordering it.


A year ago I bought a Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar - Small - 22-1/2" - 30" - 35 lbs and also got a similar Rhino-rack brand product because I had no idea what to get. Clearly the Swagman is the better product. It opens and closes easily while the Rhino product often pinches my hand, and with each use seems to work differently.

  • Should Cable Lock be Added to Yakima BackRoad if Only Carrying 2 Bike
    That's a good catch, and when only carrying a pair of bikes, if you want to keep them secure it is definitely a good idea to add a separate cable lock to go with the Yakima BackRoad 4-Bike Rack # YA44FR. The cable lock that comes integrated with the # YA44FR is for the fourth bike (furthest from the vehicle) so to secure just two bikes you can use a standard cable lock with a key, the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891, or if you don't want an extra key then go with a combination cable lock,...

  • Do I Need a Bike Frame Adapter Bar when Using the RV Rider with Step-Thru Electric Bikes?
    I have a great solution for you. Even though the independently-adjusting cradles on the Yakima OnRamp # Y36FR eliminate the need of a bike frame adapter bar, the OnRamp is not safe to use on the back of a flat-towed vehicle. I I confirmed with the engineers at Yakima that the OnRamp cannot withstand the extra torque/forces exerted on the rack during transport on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler. Even if the OnRamp was approved, the 5-inch distance between the center of the pinhole and the closest...

  • Will the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Clear My Spare Tire on My Jeep Wrangler?
    Yes! Our part number # HLY64FR is the same as the Hollywood Racks part number HR1700. These both correspond to the Hollywood Racks RV Rider. As far as clearing your spare tire on your Jeep Wrangler, there is a definite way to tell if you have enough clearance with the rack installed on your hitch (if you have a hitch receiver). Since the shank of the RV Rider measures 7-1/2" from the center of the shank's pinhole to the closest part of the rack, you have the ability to make a measurement...

  • Bike Rack For Step-Thru Ebikes For Front Hitch
    Hey Kenneth, thanks for the question and it's a good one as you're right, there are some bike racks deemed not suitable for use on a front hitch. So I did some digging, and since there's only a couple options for your 71 lb step-thru ebikes, the best one that you can use for the front hitch is the Thule Epos Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH99XE. I spoke to Thule about this and there isn't a specific restriction, they just said they hadn't tested it, so this is an option if you're comfortable...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Clear My Bumper with the Curt Hitch # C12239 on a 2008 Buick LaCrosse
    When considering whether you have enough shank length on a bike rack to clear your rear bumper, the only way to know for sure is by measuring the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside surface of your rear bumper. We unfortunately do not have that measurement available for the Curt # C12239 when installed on your vehicle. However, since we do have that measurement available for the Draw-Tite # 36374 on a 2009 model Buick LaCrosse, you most likely do not have enough clearance length...

  • Can I Use My 2 Aventon Adventure Lectric Step-Thru E-Bikes With the Sport Rider SE # HLY84FR?
    From the sounds of your question, I assume you are talking about the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HLY84FR. If this is the rack you are referring to, yes! It works with 20" diameter tires as long as you have the adapter # HLY24FR for each bike. This adapter does not come with the rack itself. This rack is a great choice because it has a super high 80 pound per bike weight capacity. It also accommodates fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide (if you have them). As far as your step-thru...

  • Is Bike Adapter Bar Needed For Yakima LongHaul or Thule Range For Trek Marlin 6 & 7
    Yes. You absolutely, positively, without any shadow of a doubt MUST use Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005 with your Trek Marlin 6 & 7 bikes on either the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476 or Thule Range # TH9057. As for the racks themselves, I would go with the Yakima LongHaul RV Bike Rack # Y02476. The Yakima ZipStrips that secure the bikes on the LongHaul are a bit "beefier" (to use an industry term) than the Thule straps, the LongHaul is also a few pounds lighter so a bit easier to handle,...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack and Hitch for a 2008 Toyota Highlander for Adult and Kids Bikes
    In order to use a hitch mounted bike rack on your 2008 Toyota Highlander you will first need a trailer hitch for which I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75586 because it does not stick out quite as far as the other options for your Highlander and it is a custom fit so no drilling is required. I have attached an install photo/video for you. For a bike rack, the one I think will work best for you is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack part...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Mini Cooper Hardtop
    For a trunk mounted bike rack that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Mini Cooper that has a spoiler the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2-3 would be your best option. This rack is specifically designed to fit your body style of vehicle with spoiler and not touch it at all. Check out the review video I attached for this rack that shows how it installs.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter RV
    The local bike shop was correct in saying that the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack, # TH9027, and we don't recommend it for an RV application either. RV's in general have more movement at the rear because the distance to the hitch receiver is further from the rear axle. Fewer moving parts on the rack helps isolate possible wobble and wear on that hitch receiver and the bike rack itself. One of the nicest bike racks for an RV is the Swagman XP, # S64940. This rack carries up to 4 bikes and...

    A hitch and bike rack would the best option for your vehicle. I checked with our trunk mounted bike rack manufacturers and we only have two that fit your 2008 Honda Odyssey. Both the Hollywood Over-The-Top 2 bike rack # HRF2, and the Hollywood Over-The-Top 3 bike rack # HRF2-3 are the only options for a trunk bike rack for your Odyssey. The great thing about a hitch is that if you ever need to tow a small trailer or use a cargo carrier you would be ready to go. For a hitch I would recommend...

  • Comparing Swagman E-Spec and Current Bike Racks for an SUV and a Ram ProMaster RV
    You have a great eye. Both the Swagman E-Spec # S94FR and the Swagman Current # S64678 are super strong bike racks that are constructed for brute strength. This is because Swagman wanted both of these racks to be approved for use when attached to the back of motorhomes/RVs. However, the E-Spec has the advantage of strength because not only can the E-Spec withstand the extra force/torque exerted on it on the back of a motorhome/RV, it also can withstand the increased force when mounted on...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Lectric XP 2.0 Step Thru E-Bikes On A Winnebago Vita Class C Motorhome
    Based on the specs for the Lectric XP 2.0 step thru E-bikes you won't be able to use the Swagman Current Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # S64678 as it only has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike and the Lectric bikes are 64lbs. Instead I recommend the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # S94FR. It has a per bike weight capacity of 70lbs and is rated for use on cars, vans, trucks, SUVs, fifth wheels, motorhomes, travel trailers, and flat towed vehicles. If your tires are over...

    For your 2008 Honda Odyssey, I recommend the Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # TH9025XT. This rack will hold your 2 adult and 2 kids bikes without issue due to the arm outside to outside width to help with the smaller kid bike frame sizes and the arms are long enough to give 7 inches spacing between the bikes. This rack has cradles to support that bikes at 3 points and have built in grooves for brake or gear shift cables. It has an integrated cable lock...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2010 Honda Odyssey
    The safest way to carry bikes is by using a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike carrier. Trunk mount carriers only go up to 3 bikes, any more than that and it would put way too much stress on the attachment points on the vehicle. And the roof is probably not wide enough for all 4 bikes, let alone able to support the weight of 4 bikes. So the options are a combination of a trunk mount and roof mount set up or a trailer hitch and hitch mount bike carrier. I recommend the simplicity of a...

  • Is Curt 5-Bike Rack Compatible With 2018 Toyota Sequoia
    Your 2018 Toyota Sequoia Limited is absolutely compatible with the Curt Premium 5-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # C18065. This 5-bike rack has plenty of clearance away from your Sequoia to keep it safe, and is a fantastic value option for carrying 5 bikes. The only thing to keep in mind is if you have a step-through frame or are carrying a small child's bike you will need to give those bikes a horizontal mounting point with the Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005. I have added links to video reviews...

    Most bikes with aggressive step through frames are going to require a bike frame adapter bar like the Swagman # 64005 when used with a frame mounting bike rack like the Swagman E-Spec # S94FR. This isn't an uncommon problem we run into, but it's a really easy solution that allows the hooks to make solid contact with the bikes and keep them in place on the rack. The Swagman E-Spec is a great rack choice for your e-bikes, but you'll likely need a frame adapter bar for both bikes to allow...

  • What Bike Rack do You Recommend for My 60-Pound E-Bike on My 2013 Ford Focus?
    I have a great solution for you for a bike rack with a ramp. Unfortunately, Saris does not make a ramp for the Saris MTY Bike Rack SA4031. We also do not have a bike rack that has a ramp for a single bike. With that being said, we do have a 2-bike option that comes with a ramp. For that route, I recommend the Yakima OnRamp # Y96FR (for 1-1/4" hitches) or the # Y36FR (for 2-inch hitches). The great thing about the OnRamp in addition to the included ramp is that you will not have to purchase...

  • Which Hollywood Bike Rack For Carrying 2 e-Bikes on Motorhome and Flat Towed Jeep
    From what I read online, it appears that the Rad step thru e-bikes weigh around 65 lbs. The weight of your bikes alone would rule out the Hollywood Racks # HR1450Z you'd mentioned, as its capacity is 50 lbs per bike so we'll move on. The # HLY84FR Sport Rider SE has plenty of capacity at 80 lbs per bike, and could be used on your Jeep as well as on your motorhome without issue, but Hollywood Racks hasn't approved it for use on a flat towed vehicle, because the rack hasn't been tested...

    The width of the cradles on the etrailer 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # e98913 measures out to 8-1/2". If the frame of your wife's bike won't allow it to fit on this rack properly then it sounds like you're needing a bike frame adapter bar like part # 64005. This adapter bar loops around the handlebar and seat posts to give a horizontal top tube so it's easier to install your bike on this rack.

  • Compatability of Swagman Current # S64678 with E-Bike with Step-Thru Frame
    It looks like you are asking about the Swagman Current Bike Rack # S64678. With your particular step-thru frame style, while we cannot confirm with certainty if the hooks on the rack are short enough to attach to the V at the bottom of your frame, it most likely is too short. We have also not seen a step-thru bike with the V that low that has worked with the Current's hooks without an adapter. For that reason, we strongly recommend a bike frame adapter bar # 64005 for your bike. Also,...

    Class 1 trailer hitch receivers, like the one on your 2012 Honda Civic, are usually designed in a way that only allow class 1 accessories to be mounted due to weight capacity. Accessories and bike racks that are class 2 or higher typically weigh more than class 1 accessories and have higher weight limits that a class 1 hitch receiver can't handle.
