Saris Bike Beam

The Saris Bike Beam makes it quick and effortless to load up and transport any bike that has a unique frame geometry.


This item works as a "substitute top tube" to help carry odd-shaped bikes (mixte frames, tandems, kid's bikes) on rear hitch racks that require a traditional level top tube. Fits up to 1 3/8" tube.

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. The Saris Bike Beam is a handy accessory for transporting bikes with specialty bike frames such as our Dutch style C frame. The Saris Bike Beam bridges the gap from handlebar stem to seat post, creating a virtual top tube for ladies and specialty frames. This allows much easier loading and transporting of bicycles. Easy to follow Saris Bike Beam instructions included. Saris Racks Lifetime Warranty!
  • Bridges the gap from stem to seat tube
  • For use with the Saris Bones RS, Bones, Sentinel, Guardian, and T-RAX where bikes are secured to rack by the top tube
