Travel with your bike, regardless of the frame shape.
The Thule Frame Adapter For Strap/Hitch Carriers work with hanging-style hitch-mount racks to hold BMX frames, downhill frames, women-specific frames, and other oddball-shaped frames securely to your rack and vehicle. The Frame Adaptor uses a telescoping push-button system that clamps onto a bike's headset and seatpost to hold it securely in place.

Easy to use
Used the frame adapter for the first time this past weekend with my daughters small mountain bike, and it worked perfectly. It is very easy to use and the bike was secure. I used it with the Apex 4 hitch bike rack.
I'm using the Thule Frame Adapter in conjunction with the Spare Me 2 Spare Tire Bike Carrier. Normally my StumpJumper is a little difficult to mount on such racks, but with the Frame Adapter, no problem. The fit is a bit loose around the headset & seatpost, but properly placed straps seem to eliminate any slop. About the only negative is that you can't have anything mounted to the seatpost right under the saddle - that's because that is where the Frame Adapter rides
