Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes - HRBA-PRO

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (448 Customer Reviews)

This adapter bar is just what you need for e-bikes that don't have a top bar of their own. Quickly connects to the bike, then the bike can be correctly stored on the bike rack.

Works great for being able to secure the bike to the bike rack.

@BrianH We're glad you're happy with it!


These bike bars serve there purpose as far as holding the bikes down on the bike rack, only thing is that sometimes they get stuck trying to get around the post, but overall would purchase again if needed


Works well. No issues with holding bike in place. Have used for 4500 miles with bikes on rack behind fifth wheel. Need to wrap cloth around ends so doesn't rub paint off of bicycle. One improvement I would like to see is to be able to lock in place once you have the length set for the bike



No changes from original review. Over 15,000 miles and no issues. Would like to see something for the ends so wouldnt have to wrap to protect paint on bike.


Fit great on our Magicycle Ocelots and our Hollywood rack.
Great price and fast shipping.


Excellent solution to a problem I have had for some time and this bar provides a simple way to load an unusual bike. The photo shows the first attempt and the front tire does not have enough clearance so I bungee cord the front to raise it. Unfortunately the photo I took will not upload. Excellent product and with a little thinking I am able to use it.


Easy assembly, never had a problem with it, someone else said the locking pin was too short but mine is just fine. Works great for carrying e-bikes and it's easy to load them. Be sure to secure them to the carrier with a strap or a strong bungee at the vertical post the hook slides down onto, or they will fall off in transit! If you have a step-through bike, you'll need a converter (an added bar) to carry it on this rack. Customer service was great, too!


Very well put together. Easy to install. I installed this on two different models of step thru ebikes and worked great. We decided to use one as a permanent part to a step-thru Blix Aveney ebike as it now doesn’t look like a woman’s bike for my guy to ride. These work well for support on our bike carrier.


Really help secure my bikes to my rack .



These are perfect for use with my ebikes .Makes mounting on my bike rack very secure ,

Etrailer Expert

@Timothy Glad they're working well for you!


Fits my step-thru bike frame perfectly and is very sturdy when I put my ebike on my car bike rack.



Still just as good.


I received our bike frame adapters and am using them both for our Pedego ebikes. My only issue is there is no protection; rubber surface, to protect the bikes. I added foam door seal, which came off after the first trip, so I will attempt to attach more with Super Glue.

I usually recommend item # SR0500 because it is a good price and also has rubber coating.


The adapter bar not only allowed us to avoid having to buy another bike rack to accommodate an e-bike, but also very strong and easy to install and remove.


A needed item if you have e-bikes from Lectric! The bar worked great and easy to install!


The bike frame adapters work great. They were delivered precisely when you said they would be here. We just took our step through, wide tire bikes to the beach 2.5 hours from our house and enjoyed a fabulous 20 mile ride along the coast. Good product and good service.



I live in NYC and like to get out and mountain bike about 3 to 4 times a week. I was skeptical about tire racks being a suitable option for hauling a dual suspension MTN bike with 27+ tires ,however Since my Jeep is parked in a parking garage a hitch rack would be a nuisance and roof racks are a hassle to install on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler, so I decided a tire rack was worth a shot. This rack completely exceeded my expectations. First the installation takes minutes. Even though it does not bolt on to the spare frame, It is by no means a flimsy rear wheel rack. It is a burly ultra secure big trail bike hauling mountain bike rack and doesn’t block the rear camera view when not in use. With the extension bar the bike fits securely and comfortably on the arms. The extra straps completely secure the frame so it doesn’t wobble on the road and evenly distributes the weight so there is hardly any pressure on the head tube and seat post. I highly recommend this rack for a hassle free strong and sturdy mountain bike rack that will protect your high performance trail bike with confidence.


The Hollywood Racks bike frame adapter bars are of excellent quality. I used them yesterday to install 2 girls' bikes along with a man's bike on my new Swagman bicycle support that is now on the rear of my 5th wheel. They did the job.


These are a must for the LLectric step thru bikes in conjunction with the Hollywood e-bike rack. Gives you a better clamping location higher up then the actual bike for a more positive hold.


Needed a platform style rack for heavy E-bike that is a step through model with fenders. This severely limited the choice of racks. Found one that said it would work and it did but because the center support grabbed the frame so low, it wobbled quite a bit and rubbed against the chain guard. This adapter bar solved the problem. Ordinarily the bike hangs from this type device so rubbing on the painted frame isn't an issue but in my use It is being pushed down by the center clamp and rode over the seat post onto the frame.. I solved this with a white spacer ring I made (see picture) so the adapter bar couldn't ride down and rub the frame.
It's a very solid nicely made piece of equipment. probably overkill for my use


Works great with our two Rad power electric bikes. They are heavy but fit like a glove in the rack. A great way to transport our bikes for a fun day riding on the inter urban trails in Bellingham.


Great products. Well made and fully assembled. Good communication and products arrived very quickly. Appreciated all the information on the website. It gave me the confidence that it would fit my vehicle.
I mounted the bike rack on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with back up camera with no issue. There is a tight clearance between the spare tire, and 3rd brake light but I was able to install it with the tire cover in tact. Going forward will probably put small spacers on the back of the tire mount for an extra fraction of inch clearance.
Also, the adapter was needed to level out the women bike on the rack.


This bike rack adapter is great. Very heavily well-built and will do exactly that for which it has made. I would have given it five stars except the way it has made the adapter bar slides in and out (so that it can be adjusted to fit to different lengths). There is no way to lock the bar length in place. And on both ends where the bar attaches to your bike, at the bar end there needs to be some sort of padding so not to scratch the bike while racked.


Great product.
Keeps the woman's bike
straight on the rack.
The locks are tight and hold the handlebars and the saddle in place.
Solidly build. Every time we go on a bike trip, I put it on my wife's bike.
Bicycle racks do not take women's bikes in account so this bar is the best alternative out there.


It is an excellent add-on to my E bike rack. For friends bikes, makes it easy and safe.


They fit perfect and will add in transporting e-bikes on trips


Great e-bike carrier. Easy installation but helpful to have an extra set of hands loading and unloading. Exactly what I was looking for.


Looks very well made and fits the RAD Mini perfectly. I like how tools not needed to attach and remove.

  • Could Hollywood Bar Bike Adapter Fit on Women's Beach Cruiser
    Yes the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter bar part # HRBA-PRO would do great installed on a women's beach cruiser bike so that it could be carried with a hanging bike rack. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Does Hollywood Racks Bike Adapter Bar HRBA-PRO Fit 17.5 and 22 inch Seat Post to Handlebar Bikes
    Since the opening of the bike frame adapters like the # HRBA-PRO is a bit wider it can be challenging to get an exact measurement for the minimum but we do know that it will fit the two dimensions you have that are 17.5 inches and 28-13/16 inches. This will work great on your Yakima RidgeBack 5 bike rack as well. I attached a link to this page that will take you to our return policy page as well.

  • Can Adapter Bar Be Used For 65-Lb Electric Bike
    You are correct. The weight of your e-bike would be too much for any of the adapter bars we offer. The maximum weight that an adapter bar can handle is about 35-lbs. If you are using the bar to use with a platform bike rack you can use it to provide a level attach point but it will not work with a hanging bike rack. You will also want to make sure your bike rack can handle the weight of your bike. If you find you need a new bike carrier I recommend a platform carrier. You can check...

  • Can I Carry Kids Bikes Without Adapter Bar On Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack
    Yes the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack # C18064 can carry most kids and women's bikes without an adapter bar. The smaller and unique frames those bikes usually have creates issues on most bike racks when trying to keep the bikes level. Other times it is too challenging to get the bike rack arms through the frame or the arms are too spread out for the small frame. The tapered design of the bike rack makes it easier to fit a smaller frame bike like a kids bike on the last two spots. With your...

They tested this rack and found that the trunk is secure and strong enough for the weight of the rack plus two bikes.

  • Best Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack For 2016 Honda Fit
    There is one trunk-mounted bike rack that stands above the rest for your 2016 Honda Fit, which is from Yakima: - Yakima FullBack 2-Bike Rack # Y02634 There are a number of reasons the FullBack # Y02634 is the best, starting with its strong anti-sway cradles and ratcheting straps which secure your bikes at three different points. This is important because it ensures your bikes don't make any contact with each other or your Honda. Another important factor which makes the FullBack the top...

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack for 2016 Jeep With Spare Tire
    I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Road Runner 3 Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches # HR320. This bike rack fits Class III, 2 inch hitch receivers and features a 20 inch long shank that provides 15 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar. This means that you will not need to use a hitch extender which reduces your hitch receiver Tongue Weight (TW) by 50%. The Road Runner can fold up when not in use for rear clearance, and can also tilt...

    The Curt Premium 5-Bike Rack # C18065 will allow most rear hatches to open when the bikes are unloaded and you tilt it, so long as the hatch goes upwards, like in the accompanying photo. In regards to a women's bike, child's bike or those with a step-through frame, the Curt rack can absolutely carry those, but as with all hanging bike racks it will require the use of an adapter to provide a horizontal mounting point for the bikes to be carried. For that you will need the Bike Frame Adapter...

  • Does Hollywood Racks Express 3-Bike Rack fit 2004 Acura MDX?
    Yes, the Hollywood Racks Express 3 Bike Carrier # HRE3 is a fit for your 2004 Acura MDX. This is a solid and economical choice for a trunk-mounted rack, though if you will be using it one a week I would recommend a rack with anti-sway cradles (which hold the bikes on the rack) instead of standard rubber cradles like the Express has. Anti-sway cradles will ensure your bikes do not make # MPG2139 is similar to the Express but it does feature anti-sway cradles as well as a shorter distance...

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack for 2016 Acura MDX
    The best solution for a non-hitch mounted bike rack in this case is going to be the rack you were looking at- the Yakima FullBack # Y02633, which will attach to the rear of your vehicle and allow you to carry up to 3 bikes weighing up to 90-lbs total (35-lbs each when less than 3 bikes). The adjustable arms really help out at keeping the bikes clear from bottoming out during transit and I really like that this rack includes a cable lock to keep your bikes secured.

  • How Would an Alternative Frame Bike Mount to Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier on a Honda CR-V
    For alternative frame bikes like your sons you would need to use an adapter bar, # HRBA-PRO. I have included a picture showing how it works. Basically one end clamps around the handlebar gooseneck, the other end around the seat post. This creates an artificial top tube to mount the bike on a hanging rack. This method creates a more level mount for the bike so you will not have one wheel dipping close to the ground.

    For your Subaru Outback and your 2011 Toyota Highlander, the trunk mount bike rack that I would recommend is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 bike rack, # HRF2. Most trunk mount bike racks are not recommended for the Highlander because of the rear spoiler. The rear spoiler on the Highlanders is made of plastic and it cannot support the weight of traditional trunk mount bike racks. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 bike rack does not put any additional stress on the spoiler and it is...

    There is a great 3-bike trunk-mounted rack which will fit your 2019 Honda Civic coupe (since it is not a Si model), the Hollywood Racks Express 3-Bike Rack # HRE3. This trunk-mount bike rack is a very popular option for your '19 Civic to carry three bikes because not only does it offer stability for your bikes with its anti-sway cradles but because it is also durable, having been made out of steel but with foam padding to keep your Civic from being damaged in any way.

I have confirmed the fit of the Over the Top # HRF2 on your vehicle by consulting Hollywood Racks.

Even with the different mounting options for the Over the Top the middle support frame arm would still be in contact with the rear glass on your 2012 Honda CR-V, and would prevent you from using your rear windshield wiper.

It will fit around the wheel and would not interfere with the camera aside from its view being mostly blocked by your bikes.
