It works

I'm using the Thule Frame Adapter in conjunction with the Spare Me 2 Spare Tire Bike Carrier. Normally my StumpJumper is a little difficult to mount on such racks, but with the Frame Adapter, no problem. The fit is a bit loose around the headset & seatpost, but properly placed straps seem to eliminate any slop. About the only negative is that you can't have anything mounted to the seatpost right under the saddle - that's because that is where the Frame Adapter rides
