Small Wheel Adapter for Universal Wheel Holders

$19.99

Small Wheel Adapter for Universal Wheel Holders 

  • QTY 1
  • For use with 20" Fat Tire rear wheels to prevent derailleur hanger interference (You will only need one per bike- Use on rear wheel only)  
  • Can also be used for 16" - 20" kids bikes (You will need two per bike)
  • Can only be used on Universal Wheel Holders and previous Fat Tire Wheel Holders
  • Fits 5" wide wheel holder only

Do not use with any 24" - 29"/700c diameter wheel bikes. Doing so will void the warranty.

Please note: The Small Wheel Adapter is for the rear wheel only of a 20" fat tire bike, to prevent derailleur hanger interference. But, 20" fat tires can be mounted without the adapter, you just need to shift the rear derailleur into the lowest gear (the largest cog in the back) before you put your bike on the rack, doing so will pull the derailleur towards the rear wheel, i.e. away from the wheel holder cradle and therefore the adapter would not be necessary. But, you would have to do that every time you load that bicycle which is why most people end up using the Small Wheel Adapter.

LED Light Compatibility Issues with some vehicles

Some newer vehicles, including the Ford F-150 with a factory-installed tow package, are not compatible with the LED Bar or other LED trailer lighting systems. This is because the vehicle’s tow package or electrical system has been designed to be used with automotive light bulbs. These light bulbs require more electrical current than LED lights. For these vehicles, the LED Bar will either not function at all or function incorrectly. They may also produce a warning light on your dash that one of your light bulbs is out OR cause your turn signals to flash faster than normal. This is because the vehicle “thinks” there is a bulb out due to the low electrical current of the LED.

These vehicles include:

2016-2023 OEM tow package equipped Ford F-Series trucks, sprinter vans,

Expeditions, Excursions, Explorers, Rangers, Broncos, and Mavericks.

Other vehicles include newer Tesla, BMW, Audi, Volvo, Chevrolet, and GMC with OEM tow packages.

For LED Bar users experiencing dashboard warnings or rapidly flashing turn signals, you need to purchase a 4-pin flat to 7-pin round adapter with a built-in electrical resistor. This adapter mimics automotive bulbs' electrical current, potentially resolving compatibility issues. While we cannot guarantee universal compatibility, it has proven effective in most cases. Purchase the adapter at Etrailer.comorAmazon for seamless integration.
