Works like it should. A must for any goofy framed or womens framed bike. Just watch your Fingers. Some other brands sell something like it for over 30 dollars. This works just as good.
This is supposed to make a female bike fit an Allen Bike Rack. It does, but you really don't need it. The rack has cradles that twist and can accommodate your bike just fine.
Too bad that Wal-Mart didn't say that in the description.
On the good side, this fits easily and secures the bike well.
This is a great adaptor bar, however, it's not really made for mtn bikes and girls (kids) bikes because there isn't enough clearance between the bike and the handle bars to affix the bar. It can be done safely though. Just make sure to use the after market straps to keep your bikes together at the bottem and to strap in the top very tightly. I found that if you e-mail "Allen", the manufacturer, they're VERY helpful and you can look up the instructions for these online BEFORE you buy them! Happy biking!
Product is fine I wish they would carry in our store since most of the new mountain bikes sold need one to use on bike carrier.
We have large, cruiser-type bikes. The frames are a little different, with extra pieces here and there. I was able to put our bikes (men's and ladies') on our carrier without these adaptors, but it was quite awkward and I could see that I would eventually have scratches and dings. These bars install in about 10 seconds and they greatly simplify the process of mounting the bikes onto the carrier. They are exceptionally strong and easy to use. Now that I have tried them I wouldn't be without them.
I'd give it 5 stars, but the pin side is are metal, which I was warned would scratch my bike. I used one layer of duct tape to create a bit of a barrier. Much easier to transport my bike now so I'm happy.
I felt like I had to buy this affordable accessory in order for bike (no center bar) to be secured safely on my affordable bike carrier by the same manufacturer. Love the price of this item, especially when the manufacturer's price on their web site was set at $30 and I got this at Walmart.com for over 50% less.
For a ladies bike this bar makes all the difference on a bike carrier.
Easy on and off with it's internal spring.
I thought it fit well on my friend's bike with the exception that it could have fit around the handlebar post more snugly. They could have either made both ends of the bar the same spring operated expander or used some rubberized material on the handlebar post end so it grips better. But all-in-all I carried the bike on a rear mounted bike rack for a couple hundred miles without incident.
Bicycle adaptor bar worked great on my adult size bike with non-traditional frame however this adaptor bar is too big for my children's 16' bikes and did not fulfill their purpose. I decided to keep them to use when the kids grow into bigger bikes but for now it will sit on the shelf with the other "extra bike supplies".
If you have a mountain bike or ladys bike and having a hard time putting it on the rear bike rack.
this is the item you need. works great!!
Had to order this as my beach cruiser would not fit on my bike rack. Found it easy to assemble on the bike and to remove when riding. Holds securely. Would recommend to all who have a cruiser.
Strong, sturdy and exactly what I needed to carry my girly bike. One thing I noticed, but not a big deal - the inner spring assembly seems to be prone to rust, but easy to mitigate with a can of WD-40. ** 2muchgirl **
I've never bought the $35 adaptor bars, so I have nothing to compare it to, but I bought 3 of these for the women's bicycle and 2 kids' bikes (16" and 18") and it did the job fine on the women's and 18" kids bike. No sense paying more than necessary.
The adaptor bar was just a bit too long for the 16" kids bicycle - the seat-post wouldn't clear past the opening of the hook in order to secure the bicycle, but I was able to rig something up and used straps to make it work. The instructions do say it needs a minimum of 18" between seat-post and stem, and not 16" as noted in the Item Description. But otherwise it worked perfectly on the 18" kids bike and for anything larger. The bar seems sturdy and secure and it worked well on the 2300 mile road-trip we just finished with bikes hanging on a hitch-mounted bike rack.
This adaptor bar loosely clamps around the handle bar mount and the seat post.
One end is a J hook that retains pressure by way of internal springs pulling the hook towards the open clamp end. Once the clamp end and J hook are in position the spring hold the bar in place securely.
I used this bar on an adult Womens bike attached to a rack on the back of a minivan for a trip through Pennsylvania. It held the bike securely and was easy to remove after removing the bike from the rack.
After one trip I would recommend this for use.
Price was inexpensive ($13.97) and delivery time was quick.
I have a Yakima bike carrier and was looking around for their tube top but couldn't find one. I found this one online and picked it up locally. I bought 2 of these to carry a girls and ladies bikes. They performed flawlessly while carrying the bikes on a long road trip - over 1500 miles. They are simple to use and I would definitely recommend them, especially at their price.
i used this on a womens schwinn point beach cruiser and allen two bike rear rack. it works like it is supposed to. there is a screw you need to remove to activate the spring action which lets you adjust the length. other than that it is pretty easy to figure out.
Works ok. I taped a piece of foam to the pin that attaches to the handle bar to prevent scratching, this is the only flaw in the product.
This product works great for my bike. My bike frame was not fitting on the bike rack and this product was able to fit on my bike and now my bike fits on the rack - NO PROBLEM.
I bought a women's Trek 7170, which has a low, curved frame so this bar worked perfectly for loading onto a standard bicycle rack. The one they sold at Trek was $40 and didn't look as easy to use as this little gem!
