Recommended Bike Adapter Bar for Use with Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Spare Tire Rack # TH963PRO  


Hi. What is the correct adapter for a womans bike for the Thule Spare Me bike carrier 963Pro?


Expert Reply:

Bike adapter bars are not really bike- or rack-specific, but since we do offer several similar items from a number of rack makers your best bet is to choose one that will best fit the distance between your bike's handlebar stem and seat post. These are the two places on the bike where these adapter bars mount.

The linked page will let you see all adapter bars we offer, from makers like Thule, Yakima, Kuat and others. In each item's specs we list the size range that each one can fit. For example, the first item shown, the Swagman Easy Out # 64005, fits handle bar to seat post spacing of 16- to 29-1/2-inches.

You'll want to measure your bike and then choose the adapter bar whose minimum size range is just enough for your bike. If possible, avoid choosing a bar that will need to be fully or nearly fully extended in order to fit your bike.
