Review of Swagman Accessories and Parts S64706


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number S64706. This is the Swagman's Spire Fork Adapter for bikes with 15 mm or 20 mm thru-axle forks. The bike rack is not included, I just have it in here for demonstration purposes to show you and give you a visual example of how this does attach to a standard 9 mm skewer on a standard roof mounted bike rack. This unit is going to adapt one bike with a 15 mm or a 20 mm thru-axle fork for use on any Swagman fork mounted bike rack. It's going to let you connect your bike's thru-axle fork to the 9 mm quick release skewer on the bike rack itself. This unit does include two adapters to fit both thru-axle sizes. It's just a thread and nut system so basically all you'd have to do is remove this outer portion here by turning it counter-clockwise until all the threads disengage.

The nut is going to stay on the back. They've got the nice wrench flats to make that process easier. Take whatever attachment you need and switch them out if needed, but you are going to get both the 15 mm and the 20 mm attachments with this part number. This will work with other bike racks as well, so it will fit most fork mounted bike racks that use the 9 mm quick release skewer to hold the bike in place. This unit is going to feature safety tabs here on the sides, these are designed to keep the skewer in place when it's installed. It's going to be constructed of rust resistant aluminum, very sturdy and lightweight.

The adapters are made from the aluminum construction as well. It's going to have a one bike capacity. Weight capacity of 45 pounds. Overall height is going to be about 4 1/2 inches and Swagman's going to cover it with a limited lifetime warranty. I'm going to show you how it installs simply by reversing the installation process. Same thing though, you would open up your skewer, just like you would when you're taking off a bike or getting ready to load a bike.

It simply just slides out. It's got the nice little attachment loops here on the side. Those just loop around the 9 mm skewer and then you would simply tighten down the skewer as if you we're installing your bike on the bike rack. With this part number, you're going to get the actual adapter, this main portion here, and you're going to get both sets of attachments. That's going to do it for our review of part number S64706. This is the Swagman's Spire Fork Adapter for bikes with 15 mm or 20 mm thru-axle forks. .
