Is Adapter Bar Needed for Carrying Kids Bikes On Saris Glide EX 5 Rack

Question:

I'm borrowing a Saris Glide 5 bike rack from my buddy. Do I need an adaptor to use this with kids bikes? Plan to use on 2018 Toyota Highlander with 2 inch receiver.

Expert Reply:

I definitely recommend an adapter bar for hitch mounted, hanging style racks like the Saris Glide EX 5 bike rack (discontinued). Having done this myself for years with my own hanging style rack and no adapter bar with my 2 boy's bikes, I definitely wish I knew about these years ago.

The Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # RRRBCA021 is a great option. An adapter bar helps provide safe, level transport of a woman's, child's, or full-suspension bike on a hanging-style bike rack. A shorter option when retracted that works well with kids bikes to consider too is the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # HRBA-PRO.

The included video resources provide a solid overview for more information from here.
