Thule 982 Frame Adapter Customer Reviews
9 Customer Reviews
Rear-mount bike racks give you a convenient spot for hauling your bicycles around. You don’t have to get your hands greasy popping off your wheels, and you don’t have to kill your back hoisting your 2-wheeler onto your roof. But, if your bike doesn’t have a standard frame, it won’t fit onto most rear mounts—unless you equip it with a Thule 982 Frame Adapter! This lightweight bar creates the standard cross arm that’s missing on women’s, BMX and specialty frames.
Whether your frame is compact or gigantic, the Thule 982 Frame Adapter adjusts to fit just about any bike. The cushioned rubber ends fit around your handlebars and seat post, securing solidly with easy-to-use push buttons. Your Thule 982 Frame Adapter slips on and off in a snap, and ensures a rock-solid fit for safe transport. And, Thule backs this ingenious Frame Adapter with a Lifetime Warranty.

Generally a high quality item, well thought out, and amazing in our economic system that such a thing exists for sale. My daughter's bike which does not have a horizontal bar at the top needs a temporary horizontal bar to put it in on a bike rack on my car. This adapter serves that purpose, amazing! However, for a child's bike (9yr old girl, medium size bike) the distance betweent the handle bars and the seat is too short for this adapter (even though adjustable). Secondly, I would wonder why upward pressure on the bike seat from the adapter does not push the seat post out of the frame while the car is driving down the road.

Great product. Does not scratch bike. Works great on a vehicle that is tall enough. You cannot use this on a small car because it lowers your bike and it will only be a couple of inches off the ground at best. I use it when my bike club is car pooling in SUV's.

it does what is says it is supposed to do.. however opening the clamps is not an easy task until you get the hold of it. It does not come with any instructions either. But it does work fine

My bike rack has a fairly impressive locking system which the conversion bar would be secured with. But what is stopping someone from lifting my bike straight off the conversion bar while it stays firmly locked into my bike rack? Thanks!
