    Any preference for a ladies bike frame adapter for bike rack use?

    I wanted to get a frame adapter that would allow me to carry a ladies bike on my hitch-mounted bike rack that has 2 horizontal struts.

    I see there are around 10 of them out there.

    Any clear preference?

    They're all roughly the same functionally, so price might be the biggest consideration. I like the compactness of the ends on the Yakima, and it has nice safety latches, but may lack versatility on some low bars. (that's may, because I'm not sure it will matter).

    Whichever you use, be sure the seatpost clamp is secure, since the bike in hanging by the post with no backup if it slips.
