Review of the Rhino Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rhino-Rack bike adapter bar, designed for use with women's, kid's, or hybrid-style frame bikes. The part number is RRRBCA021. As you can see, mounting a standard women's frame bike, kid's frame, or alternative frame bike, can sometimes be a problem. We've got our tire and our seat way up in the air back here, our front tire's pointed down. It's just not doing our bike justice, it's not going ot give it a good ride down the road. So Rhino Rack's bike adapter bar's going to help us out with that. The bar itself is completely adjustable, we can move this in and out to fit a wide variety of lengths of bikes.

We've got a nice rubber coating all the way around the inside. This is going to protect our bike, our frame, stuff like that, from any kind of damage. The design is unique in that it slides rearward, allowing us to get the adapter bar around the portions of our bike we need to without one of those levers that kind of come up and down and sometimes cause interference. Now, to open it, all we do is press down on the small tab and slide the moving portion rearward. Then bring it around, and as you can see we're going around our seat, too, here at the rear, and at the front we've gone around the stem here on our steering wheel. Once we have our adapter installed it's just a matter of placing it right up into the rack.

As you can see, this is going to give our bike a much more level, flat ride. The weight's distributed evenly across the bar, so we don't have to worry about any kind of pressure differences or anything like that. As you can see, for demonstration purposes we are going to use the outside cradle, but if you're actually going to be transporting your bike you will want to have it all the way on the inside. Essentially now we're just going to bring our straps on around. We secure our bike as we normally wood.

We can take advantage of all the anti-sway cradles and things like that without any interference. This is just acting as our standard upper tube on most bikes. That will complete today's look at the Rhino-Rack bike frame adapter bar, designed for use with women's, kid's, and alternative frame bikes, part number RRRBCA021. .
