    Great product. Simple design and great price. Worked on a small girls bike all the way to a full sized women’s flat foot bike. I measured the minimum distance between the hooks @ 21 inches and with the tubes fully extended @ a maximum of 29 inches. Max distance between the tips of the hooks is 25.5″. If the distance between the outside of your seat post and the outside stem is greater than 25.5 you would have to seperate the tubes to get the hooks around the post and stem. See photos and notes.
    Both rubber hook ends are coated with a high quality rubber material that is thick and will not scratch your bike. The design is simple. Basically you have two tubes that slide in and out of each other and a quick release locking mechanism like you find on the seat post of bikes. Compared in price to the other cross bar substitutes this is a good choice. The less expensive “Allen Tension Bar” has a exposed metal end that would scratch your bike and the customer reviews complain of the spring tension design pinching their fingers. The name brand thule frame adapter is listed for over $30 dollars. Would buy again and suggest to friends.

    In general I am happy to have this solution for carrying my kids’ bikes. The rubber coating on the bar whose purpose is to prevent scratching on the bike was quickly lacerated after just a few uses. This sucks, but I suspect will be the. Awe with any coated bar. I will now wrap the bar in tape and continue using it.
    All in all, this is a useful adapter.

    Installed two of these on 2012 Rav 4. Install was pretty easy. Used for 5 day trip to beach. Took bikes off and put back on each ride as hotel bike racks were full and I didnt want to cram our $400 bikes in with everyone else. I’m 6’1 and loading unloading was fairly painless. However I don’t know my wife could’ve done it herself without a step ladder. Overall you can’t beat these for the features, and cost compared to other big name brands. Definitely glad I went with these!

    Bike rack fits great. Holds my 2014 Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 29″ very well, and it works with my 2010 Chevrolet Equinox’s factory cross bars. The only bad about it is that the grips fit slightly loose on the cross bolt and supports, so my bike will rock on the roof just a bit. I plan to add a rubber hose inside the grip on the support bars to make it more snug and prevent the rocking. Other than that, I would recommend these racks. In fact I am purchasing two more to hold my son’s 24″ mountain bike and my wife’s 26″ mountain bike also.
