The 3040 Saris Bike Beam is a handy accessory for transporting bikes with unconventional bike frames on trunk mount bike racks and hitch bike racks. The Saris Bike Beam simply attaches between the bicycle seat post and handlebar stem. This allows much easier loading and transporting of bicycles that don't have a top tube frame that runs level and straight between the handlebars and seatpost - including women's, kids, bmx, hybrid and many freeride / downhill mountain bikes etc.
While most of today's trunk bike racks and hitch bike rack models will accommodate all styles of bicycles, the use of the Saris Bike Beam makes it quick and effortless to load up any bike that has a sloping top tube or has a funky frame geometry. Replaces the Saris 3037 Bike Beam. Easy to follow Saris Bike Beam instructions included. Saris Racks Lifetime Warranty!
