"If you are near West Town (Chicago and Western), I have a Yakima Tube Top adapter (new in packaging) that I'd let go for cheaper than the Performance brand option."

"I'll second a flatbed hitch mount. They're very easy to, secure, and can handle a wider variety of bikes. Most rack companies have similar model."

"Performance carries one for about $25. i don't usually recommend Performance for much of anything, but they have one and it costs almost half as much of Yakima's. Maybe your LBS would be a good alternative to Performance, so go there…"

"If you get a flatbed hitch mount, you probably don't need a top tube adapter.  The one I have accommodates a slanted top tube without an adapter: http://www.performancebike.com/bikes/Product2_10052_10551_1122106_-1"

opinions on top tube adapter

My Wrangler came with a smittybilt hitch so I'm planning to use a hitch mounted bike rack. But before that, I need suggestions on adapter since my bike has a slanted top tube. I know Thule and Yakima sell them but they are a bit pricey. Any recommendations on tube top adapter that is durable and inexpensive. See More
