Would Marin Bikes Need Bike Frame Adapter to be Carried on Thule Spare Me


Im interested in the Thule Spare Me Pro Bike Rack to go on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler JK and/or 2008 Toyota RAV-4. It seems it will fit both vehicles, however Im not sure our two Marin hybrid bikes will fit. One is womens and one is mens. I read a review on another website that said the Marin bike does not fit on this Thule so I wanted to confirm. I understand a bike adapter may be needed. Is there any way to know whether the Marin bikes will both fit and whether we need an adapter? I can provide more photos but the system is only letting me add one photo right now. OK, now its not accepting my question at all. Appreciate your help in advance.


Expert Reply:

If you wanted to send me pictures of your Marin bikes I can take a look at and help determine if a bike adapter bar # UB01 would be needed with the Thule Spare Me 2 part # TH963PRO.

I pulled up several models of the Marin Hybrid bikes and the ones with a non-horizontal top tube would need the # UB01 so I'd assume you'd need at least one adapter for the womens bike you have.
