It fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to ensure level transport on your hitch-, trunk-, or spare-tire-mounted bike rack.

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.

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

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.

Worked as advertised and made loading and securing 2 of my 4 bikes much easier! Traveled 4 hours with no issues.

My bike manufacturer (Rad Power eBikes) requires an adapter bar for their Rad Power 6 Plus Step-Thru bike. When I ordered our bikes and bike rack carrier, their adapter bar was on backorder with no estimated time to fill. I reviewed the specs of this Swagman Deluxe Bike Fram Adapter Bar, read the comments and made the order. The order came very quickly, the box was new (not previously opened) and eTrailer was great about providing order tracking and follow-up after I received the adapter bar. Outstanding job eTrailer, and now I can travel with both ebikes! Thank you.

I plan to use the bar in a few months with a rack for a step through electric bike so I can't comment on the bar itself yet. The etrailer.com personnel were very helpful over the phone for ordering this item. I received it in 2 days. Great customer service.

Great service as always from etrailer! The bike frame adapter ensures that our two bikes hang straight and parallel to the ground when being transported on the bike rack. An inventive idea and I would not have thought of it unless it was suggested by etrailer. Many great solutions from a great supplier!

This adapter bar works great with my Townie and with beach cruisers. Makes it possible to take my bike to the beach and save on rentals.

Works great! The adapter bar makes my rack so much more versatile. I can travel with any style bike by making some simple adjustments.

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.

worked well to level out my beach cruiser on the rack since it has a slanted cross tube. It expands easily and is easy to put on.

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.

Heavy duty product...Easily holds 2 RAD City Step-Thru E-Bikes. Locking mechanism is easily picked with paper clips. Son-in-law opened it in less than 1 minute and he only watched a video [online]. Had to buy an extra tension bar because of "girl-bike" configuration. Still easy to set up. Sits tight, no noise. Fine product. Need better security product, bike theft is too profitable and too easy...thieves use portable angle grinders.


Comments
Very useful and easy to use. Could use a ramp for heavy bikes.

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

Great piece of equipment used to add a crossbar to my women's framed bike. Makes it much easier to hang from my bikerack, especially if adding a second bike.

i have two step thru frame bikes so theses bars were needed in order to allow the bike to be secured to the bike rack. Installation was a snap and the product worked as advertised. Once installed and the bike on the bike rack the ebike is very secure and locked into place. Very good product and I can highly reccomend it.

Once I set up the main bike rack I got from etrailer, I realized I had two female bikes needed this adapter bar. I ordered it, it came quickly, and it is perfect. I really like their product quality and customer service.

by:

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.



- 64005
by:

It works well for a cheap rack. Mounting is very easy. My only negatives are A) that the straps for securing on the bottom of the door have elastic on them and it makes it feel like it's not super secure and B) the rack doesn't easily fold down when not in use - requires a lot of strength to pull the two cross braces out.



- 64005
by:

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.

I really like it. My only problem is that it is a little wobbly in the receiver. My husband thinks that if we were to put in a shim this might solve the problem.

Works very well. It allows me to safely mount a bike with a slanted bar on a hitch bike rack.

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Accessories and Parts



  • What Materials is the Swagman Easy Out Bike Adapter Bar Made Of
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Swagman adapter bar, # 64005, to check the materials it is made of. The main bar itself is made of black powder coated metal. The actual clamps at the ends are nylon and are smooth and soft so they will not mar the finish of the bikes. I also made a short video showing the product and a video review link for you.

  • What Is Maximum Bike Weight For Swagman Bike Adapter for Hitch Bike Racks, # 64005,

  • Is it Necessary to use a Bike Rack Adapter Bar for Mountain Bikes
    It is not always necessary to use an adapter bar. The adapter bar has two main tasks: 1. Provide a good attachment point for the cradles on the rack 2. Level the bikes so that one of side of the rack is not bearing much more weight than the other. If you can keep the weight balanced without it and have room to get the bike on the rack, an adapter may not be necessary. It is always a good idea to use an adapter to keep the bikes level, but may not always be necessary.

  • Can Swagman Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 Fit 1-1/2 Inch Seat Post
    I went to our warehouse and took a couple measurements of the Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter, part # 64005 for you. One end of the adapter measures 1-1/4 inches wide and the opposite end measures 2-1/8 inches, so this should fit your 1-1/2 inch seat post just fine. I have attached a photo of the # 64005 with the dimensions noted.

  • Is Frame Adapter Bar Needed for Fuji 2.3 Womens Bike on Thule Doubletrack
    The frame hooks for the Thule Doubletrack will ratchet down pretty far, but if your Fuji has a step through frame with a single down tube welded to the bottom bracket, a frame adapter bar would be necessary to carry the bike on the rack. If the frame is more conventional like what's shown in the provided photo, it should work fine without an adapter bar. We've found that the Swagman DLX frame adapter bar, part # 64005 is both inexpensive and very easy to use.

    Our current stock of the Yakima Ridgeback 4, part # Y02458 is all the new version with the two hitch pin holes. The rack would indeed be compatible with your 2015 Subaru Outback with the OEM hitch. If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Hitch-Mount Carrier for Subaru Outback
    You can use either a platform-style hitch bike rack that suspends the bikes at their tires or a hanging-style rack to transport your 4 bikes on your Subaru Outback. Each type offers a mix of advantages. Platform racks do not require you to lift your bikes up as high to load them but these carriers also extend further to the rear of the car. This can mean reduced ground clearance, which can matter especially if you have a steep driveway entrance. Hanging racks tend to weigh less than platform...

  • Can Swagman Bike Frame Adapter 64005 be Used on a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack

    For your 2018 Nissan Versa with 1-1/4 inch receiver, if you have a kids bike smaller than 20 inches, then I recommend the Thule Helium Aero 3-Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # TH9043. This carrier has integrated locks and has a measurement of 14-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast, 11-1/4 inches to the lever at the base, and 4-1/2 inches to the locking knob. I recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's,...

    The Softride Dura Fit # SR26247 will fit your Infinity FX35 with a 2 inch receiver hitch. This parallelogram tilting style of bike rack allows you to tilt the bike rack away from the rear of the vehicle and allows access to the the cargo area of your Infiniti. This is a unique feature and can be used while the bikes are loaded on the bike rack, as opposed to most tilting styles of bike racks that require the bikes to be unloaded before tilting the bike rack.

  • When Do Bikes Need An Adapter Bar For Hanging Rack
    The Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes part # 64005 can be used with only 1 bike on the rack. It does not have to be used on all of the bikes. It is used to give step through bike frames like children's and women's bikes a horizontal cross tube to hang from. If your other bikes have a horizontal cross tube to hang evenly from you don't need an adapter for those bikes. If your bike rack is a platform rack and has ratcheting arms that...

If you also have a woman's bike with a slanted cross tube you may consider getting an adapter bar for that bike as well.

  • Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar Inside Dimensions

  • Will the Thule Archway Truck Rack Fit a 2019 Dodge Durango?
    As the Thule Archway was discontinued in 2019, I cannot say what it will and will not fit, unfortunately. However, this was a confirmed fit before 2019 and I included a video we did on a 2016 Durango. I can also say that the arms on the Archway are 10 1/2 inches apart, so if your bike frames are wider than that, you will not need any adapters, like the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005.

  • Can the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Be Clamped on Below the Seat Binder
    The Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005 was designed to clamp around your bike's seat post and handlebar's stem post. That being said, if your bike is better suited for the adapter to clamp on below the binder, then that can be done as long as the diameter of your frame where you are clamping this on does not exceed 1-3/16" wide.

  • Can the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar Be Used in Either Orientation

    Any of the bike adapter bars we offer should work for your needs. The Swagman # 64005 for instance can telescope from 24 3/8 inches to 33 3/4 inches. As long as the distance between the handlebar stem and the seat post tube falls in that range, the adapter bar would work great for you. I've linked to a product demonstration video for the adapter bar.

  • How to Transport a Womans Bike with a Pro Series Eclipse Bike Rack part # 63124
    Without a bike frame adapter like the part # 64005 it would be pretty challenging to fit a women's bike on the Reese Eclipse bike rack part # 63124. The bike would end up at a pretty odd angle most likely due to the angled down tube of the bike. I would strongly recommend a # 64005 with this rack if you plan on carrying a women's bike.
