Bike Adapter Bar That Will Fit a Kids Bike With Only 18" Between Seat Post and Handlebar Stem


Hello, I am trying to find an adapter bar that will fit a womens bike and two kid bikes to hang on a thule hanging bike rack. The smallest distance between posts is 18 so Im not sure which one will actually fit that. Thanks!

I recommend the Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT for your kids bikes. This bar telescopes from 16" to 31-1/2" long allowing it to fit a wide variety of bikes. It will allow you to hang your bikes from a bike rack like the Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack # TH9025XT.

With that many bikes you will want to use a set of Auxiliary Lights # C53201 behind your bikes as the bikes will likely impair the view of your tail lights. The lights will plug into a 4-way flat trailer connector making them easy to install.

If you are in need of a receiver for the bike rack or wiring for the lights, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76134 and Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118578. These are custom fit items for your 2017 Toyota RAV4 and will install with only minor modification.
