    Mountain Bike "fake crossbar" needed

    I have a new (ish) Saracen MB and a 3 bike carrier for my car. But with the shape of the frame, it will not fit.
    I have been advised that there are things called "fake crossbar" or similar that will enable me to fit the bike on.
    Does anyone know where I can get one? Tried my local Halfords, but they looked at me as though I was asking for it in Lithuanian or something.
    I only need it for the next 2 weeks, so if anyone has one they can rent me or sell me, that would be good.

    Thanks in advance.

    this is the closest I could find, mine is adjustable though. Pop into your local bike specialist and ask for a Crossbar for cycle rack and they will know. Halfords are rubbish I went there to buy a bike and then after useless advice I went to a real shop with people that knew what they were talking about...I probably paid over the odds but who cares

    Thanks guys. Both repped. Crossbar adapter makes far more sense than fake crossbar :oops:
