The all-new Thule 982XT Frame Adapter replaces the previous 982 Frame Adapter with enhanced features and ease of use. The Thule 982XT provides super easy mounting of hard to rack bike frames onto any trunk bike rack or hanging-style hitch bike racks. Modifies women's bikes, kid's & bmx bikes and other non-standard bike frames (such as freeride / downhill bikes etc.) with a level bar that mounts quickly, snugly and securely to the bike rack cradles. The Thule 982XT Frame Adapter attaches between the handle bar stem and bike seat post.
Effectively creates a traditional top-tube type structure on the bike frame for effortless mounting of the bike on any trunk bike racks or hanging-style hitch bike racks. This is the solution for difficult fitting kid’s, bmx, women’s, and odd-shaped bike frames.
