Thule Frame Adapter

Modifies women's bike frames as well as BMX and non-standard frames in order to be carried on hanging-style hitch and strap mount bike racks.


Worth every cent if mounted correctly.


This rack is absolutely great. Only one I've found that allows you to open the tailgate on a Jeep Wrangler while the bikes are mounted. No problems after 11,000 miles of continuous use carrying at least one bike with a fully loaded weight of about 42 pounds. If you have wide vehicle tires you MUST use the strap they give you to prevent breaking the center mounting bolt - especially if carrying two bikes as I did occasionally. Very solid and corrosion resistant over a total of four or five months of unprotected exposure to western deserts, Canadian blizzards and Gulf Coast weather. Still no problems after 18 months of use on Jeep Wrangler towed behind the motor home.

LOVE this rack and just purchased it in June for my old Wrangler. It was the second rack I have purchased like this as the first one was damaged in a wreck. I just purchased a new Wrangler and was so sad to find out this rack will not work with it due to the backup camera. THULE please help.

Good Product! Well Made!


My bike fits great on it. My wife's bike frame is too small for it. Fits to tight. I bought the adaptor for 49.95 and it does not work for her bike. It is a chore to get hers on the rack.
