Is Adapter Available to Carry Childrens 16 Inch Bike with Kuat Sherpa


Can the Kuat models Sherpa or NV be used with 16inch kid bikes? If an adapter is needed, which one? Part PN2024 says it is for 20inch wheels so that isnt sufficient, correct?


Expert Reply:

Even with Wheel Adapter, # PN2024, the smallest bike that can be carried on the Kuat Sherpa, # SH22G or the Kuat NV, # NV22G, is a 20 inch bike so this rack would not work for the 16 inch kid's bike. Good news is I do have a solution. Take a look at the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2, # HR1000Z. You would just need to use the Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters, # HRSW-ADP-2, and you will be ready to go.

Another option would be to go with a hanging rack like the Saris Bones # SA882 and use a bike adapter bar like the Swagman Easy-Out, # 64005. The adapter bar attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and is great for women's, children's, and alternative frame bikes because it gives a horizontal surface to secure to. This allows the bike to be carried more evenly in the carrier while providing more ground clearance.

I have attached a link to all of our hanging bike racks for you. Just use the filters on the page to narrow down your search to include the features that you are looking for.
