ReviewsHalfords False Cross Bar 27 29Removable cross bar Ordered 3pm one day received in store 10.30am next day great service.Solid product fits just were it is needed,giving strong firm fixing.Part that opens is strong and easy to use 01 August 2012Does the job well enough. The bar works fine, it would be nice if it was a little more adjustable, given that on my bike, it didn't fit nicely around my headset, and ended up holding the bike by the stem. It's more of a peeve than a genuine issue. On the plus side, this had the benefit of not allowing my handlebars to turn when on the bike rack. I've racked up close to 150 miles with my bike on the rack, and I've had no cause for concern regarding the crossbar, it has always kept it's position on the bike. I'm not sure how long it will last, given that it is two overlapping halves held together by an elastic strap, which isn't an issue when it is holding a bike, as the saddlepost, and the stem/headset stop the two halves extending, but I think the elastic may snap in a few years time. All in all, it's excellent value, and I haven't had any problems so far. 19 March 2012Did the job Good strong just what I wanted very easy to fit , I would have bought when I bought the cycle carrier but did not know about them. 29 February 2012fake cross bar replaces missing cross bar on full suspenshion bikes so you can put them on a rear mounted bike rack simple to use fits child 6 year bike upto full size adult mountain bike 30 January 2012Bought this for my daughters bike I recently purchased a Halfords False Cross Bar as my daughter's bicycle has has very low cross bars and would not otherwise sit on a bike rack on the back of the car. The false cross bar connects to the seat stem and the upright of the handle-bars. With the false cross bar, her bike sits nice and level and does not block the rear lights or number plate. So it does it's job! It appears to be well made and securely locks, but there is no secondary locking system, so I was slightly concerned about the false cross bar opening and her bike falling off damaging the car, but that didnt happen. Will I buy another? Probably, we have other mountain bikes in the family and will need at least one more of these! 22 January 2012Struggled to fit The bar is well made and of good quality but I was never 100% comfortable while using it as there is no way to tighten onto the cycle anchor points so it appears to have too much free-play, although this did not cause any problems in practice. This is the only product of this type I have purchased so may just be a 'feature' of all false cross bars though! 05 June 2011Simple and easy to use Product is of good quality, very sturdy, easy to use and does exactly what it is built for. I bought it for a 500 mile round trip with use on Saris Bones 2 Bike rack and I had no difficulties with it at all. You may need to adjust the seat height in order to fully tighten the crossbar aginst the frame of the bike but all in all, its is fairly priced for doing a simple job. I would recommend pruchasing this product. 05 May 2011Useful and seems to do the job I was a bit dubious about the cross-bar as I was worried about the weight of the bike relying on the saddle (as the cross bar attaches to the saddle pole) but managed 2 x 3hr trips on the bike rack with no problems. Quick and easy to fit 04 May 2011
