There is a solution offered by bike rack makers and it seems from this video blog that some are completely unaware of it! http://notmountwomensbike.blogspot.com/

WE don't see what you're disussing and WE don't market anything. We advise.

To your question: they make adapters for non-standard bike frames like the so-called women's style to provide a 'top tube' for hanging on a bike carrier.


Google "bicycle adapter bar" or look on eBay.

For example... http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Tension-Bar-Bicycle-Cross-Bar-Adaptor-BLACK-900B-/220782155858?pt=Cycling_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3367a45852

Will my class 1 hitch support a hitch mounted bike rack and bikes?


perhaps. It is always best to check with the manufacturer of the bike rack you will be using. Some manufacturers do not recommend the use of their racks with class 1 hitches. Those that have bike racks to work with class 1 hitches typically have very specific weights, specifications, and may even limit the number of bikes allowable. Just remember, when calculating the weight of your load don't forget to add in the weight of the bike rack itself. B&W Trailer hitches are great for this job.

Just installed the schwinn hitch rack 3 on the hitch of our vehicle. How to we fasten bicycles on rack? men'a AND women's bikes.


For the ladies model you need an adapter bar to make it like a mans model. , mens, you just set arms on the bike's top bar and bungee it or if it has straps use them. Make sure that your pedals do not scratch your trunk by either buying foam pedal blocks or wrap and tape them. Put the womans bike on first.

I have an old hitch mount bike rack : Thule 515-0109 and a Trek women's touring bike. How do I mount the bike on the rack?????


You have to buy a women's bike adaptor, (about $30) and it is a bar that makes the frame like a mens frame. Bike shops sell them.

Is there a weight limitation for carrying roof bicycle racks/bike


I wouldn't think there is a limitation, but I would be sure that it would hod the bikes and the bike rack too. Just be careful when you go thru McDonalds driveway. Lol. Hope this helps!?

Mounting method


I know you said you don't want to remove the front wheel but here are a couple of options for that if you're interested: http://www.yakima.com/racks/bike-racks/p... http://www.hurricanecomponents.com/press... If you don't want to remove the front wheel then you'll need to use a type of rack that has the hook arm or cradles to hold the bike. Thule makes a version of the T2 for truck beds....it's pretty nice. Or just use a hitch rack....the T2, Yakima, and Saris are all pretty decent and it's a snap to load and unload the bikes. They're all in the $320-$360 range, but it's a good investment.,,,

Can i connect it on GMS Aveo?


Hitch bike racks should connect to any car with a hitch connection on the rear buttom.
Just remove the regular car hitch (if you have one) and replace it with the bike hitch rack.
Hope that it answer you question.
