Expert Answers about Kuat

  • Kuat Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Outback
  • Yes, the Kuat Beta # B202-2 that you referenced is designed to fit a 2 inch hitch so it would work well on your 2014 Subaru Outback that has a 2 inch installed on it currently. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide...

  • Bike Adapter Bar Recommendation for Kids Bikes Carried on a Hanging Bike Rack
  • Most likely yes, the Kuat Adapter bar part # UB01 will provide a horizontal attachment point for a hanging bike rack. A lot of kids bikes have small, odd shaped frames so an adapter bar like this will allow them to be used on a hanging bike rack. For more info on how this adapter works check out the review video I attached.

  • The Differences Between the Kuat NV Shanks
  • The two different Kuat NVs you are referencing are the 1-1/4 inch version part # N102 that has the curved shank that you described and the 2 inch version that has what appears to be a straight shank part # N101. As long as you have a 1-1/4 inch hitch on your vehicle the # N102 would work well for you. I also attached review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.

  • Will Kuat NV 2-Bike Platform Carrier # N101 Work With Genesis Beach Cruiser with Front Fender
  • Thank you for submitting the photo of your Genesis Beach Cruiser bike. Although the front fender on this bicycle is fairly short it still would contact the tire ratchet arm on the Kuat NV # N101. A better option in a 2-bike platform-style carrier to fit 2-inch hitches is a frame-mount type that secures the bikes at the frame tube. The link provided will take you to our page for all wheel/frame-mount 2-bike carriers for 2-inch hitches. These carriers have a padded arm that secures the...

  • Will Kuat NV Aluminum Bike Rack # N101 Fit 2-Inch Hitch
  • The Kuat NV Aluminum Hitch-Mount Bike Rack # N101 will fit 2-inch hitch receivers. This excellent rack is illustrated in the linked video. The NV is compatible with wheelbases up to 48-inches, tire width to 3-inches and wheel sizes from 20- to 20-inches. The rack can be expanded with the 2-bike add-on part # N103.

  • Recommended Frame Adapter Bar For Rumor Bike On Hanging Bike Carrier
  • I researched your Rumor bike online and see what you are talking about, with a nearly non-existent handlebar stem. That can make it difficult to find a suitable adapter bar that can fit. I recommend the Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part # UB01. I have attached a photo that shows how the adapter bar opens up. With the arm of the hoop opening out instead of inward, this should allow you to slip the adapter bar around the bottom of the handlebar.

  • Kuat NV Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Wheel Mount Cradles 2 Bike Extension for 2005 Nissan Xterra
  • You are partially correct. There will be a 2 inch add-on unit available for the Kuat Aluminum, Hitch Mounted 2 Bike Rack with Wheel Mount Cradles - The NV - 2 inch Receiver, item # N101. The add on will not be available for the # N102, 1-1/4 inch shank bike racks due to the weight capacity limits of Class I and II receiver hitches. You should have no ground clearance issues with your Xterra when using either of the Kuat NV racks and with the # N101 two inch hitch rack the 2 bike extension...

  • Kuat Platform Bike Rack or Other 3 Bike Rack for a 1988 Toyota Minivan
  • None of the platform bike racks that fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch will hold more than 2 bikes. We do not have a higher capacity hitch available for a 1988 Toyota Minivan, but you can use a hitch mounted rack like the Swagman Trailhead, S63365. This rack will fit in your hitch, is rated for a Class I hitch, will hold 3 bikes, and it will fold down to give you better access to the rear of the vehicle. I have included a link to the instructions below.

  • What is the Overall Length of the Kuat Bike Adapter Bar
  • The 15 inches to 23 inches measurement on the Kuat adapter bar # UB01 is the inner length. The overall length is 20 inches to 27 inches. I have included a picture that shows this and a link to a video review of the bar for you.

  • Fit of Kuat NV # N106 Bike Rack in Class II Hitch on 2012 Subaru Outback
  • The Kuat NV # N106 would almost certainly be a good choice for your Outback. Just to make sure, you'll want to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole in your receiver tube to the furthest rearward edge of the back bumper. As long as this distance is less than 7 inches, the NV would work great on your Outback. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to take the measurement I mentioned above. I've also linked you to a product demonstration video featuring the NV.

  • Will Kuat Beta Bike Rack # B202-114 Fit On a 2012 Suzuki SX4 Crossover
  • The Kuat Beta Bike Rack, part # B202-114, is designed for a Class I and Class II 1-1/4 Inch hitch. To be able to use this Kuat bike rack on a 2 inch hitch you will need to purchase the Kuat Bike Rack Shank Adapter, part # D101. This adapter will bolt onto the shank of the Beta bike rack. It is not included with the Kuat Beta bike rack. On a 2012 Suzuki SX4 Crossover, I only show the Class I 1-1/4 Inch hitch as a fit, so this Kuat Beta bike rack will install onto your hitch without the...

  • Looking for US Made 2-Bike Rack for 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
  • The Kuat Beta, part # B202-114 is designed by Kuat in Springfield MO, but is built overseas. The Thule racks are made in the USA. The Thule Parkway, part # TH958 is a good, reliable no-frills rack. Good quality at a good price point. The Thule Vertex, part # TH9028XT adds a more modern looking design, along with anti-sway bike cradles that prevent the bikes from swinging back and forth during travel. The arms the bikes hang from can be folded down with a flip of a latch, and the...

  • Will Kuat Bike Rack B202-114 Fit on a 2007 Chevy Cobalt SS Coupe
  • The clearance for bike rack # B202-114 is going to be 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar on the bike rack. To determine if this rack would have enough clearance to fit on your 2007 Chevy Cobalt, I recommend measuring from your hitch pin hole to a point past your bumper and any other items that might interfere with the bike rack installation. If this measurement is less than 10-1/2 inches, the Kuat bike rack would work well for your application. If...

  • Hidden Hitch and Kuat Beta Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota Matrix
  • Yes, the Kuat Beta Bike Rack part # B202-114 will install in the Class I Hidden Hitch part # 60898 that you have on your 2007 Toyota Matrix. This rack is Class I compatible and will slide all the way into the opening of your hitch so that the pin hole would line up so that you could pin it in the hitch. I attached a review video for the rack for you to check out also.

  • Kuat Sherpa Bike Carrier # S101 Having Clearance Issue with 2011 Mazda CX-7
  • The front tire cradles on the Kuat Sherpa Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # S101 are removable. According to my contact at Kuat there are two screws that can be easily removed to allow the cradle to be taken off for those times when you will not be carrying bikes but still prefer not to have to remove the entire carrier from your hitch.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Complete Rear Access on a 2009 Honda CRV
  • We tested the Kuat Sherpa # S101 on a Honda CR-V of the same generation as your 2009 and found that it did not clear the lift gate when folded down. The Kuat NV part # N101 that you referenced might clear, but its a gamble since we have not tested it and it depends also on the width of your handlebars. I do have an option that I can guarantee will clear your lift gate. Check out the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9031XT. This rack will swing out completely and will give you complete...

  • Will the Kuat Beta Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Kuat Beta bike rack # B202-114 is designed to fit 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers so as long as the hitch on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline is a 2 inch the rack will fit the hitch. To determine clearance to the tailgate or bumper you will need to measure from the center of the trailer hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the bumper, tailgate, or any other obstruction. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the obstruction. I...

  • Platform Bike Rack that Attaches to Bike Frame Recommendation
  • If the frame of the bike was low enough the wheel mount of the # N102 could most likely be ran to the frame of the bike. Since this rack wasn't designed to attach to bikes in this fashion I can't really recommend you use this bike rack like that. Instead I would recommend the Thule DoubleTrack part # TH990XT as this rack attaches to bike racks in the way you are interested in. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • How to Use a Kuat NV for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch in a 2 inch Hitch
  • Kuat does not offer hitch adapters for the NV bike racks, but there are some alternatives. If you are needing an adapter to use the Kuat NV, # N102, that you referenced in a 2 inch receiver, then I would recommend looking into a hitch reducer like the Brophy 2 Inch to 1-1/4 Inch Reducer, # HT02. This will insert into your 2 inch receiver and provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver for your bike rack. Due to the design of your bike rack shank there really isn't a way to use an anti-rattle device...

  • Fit Kuat Trio Roof Mount Bike Rack and # TRP9 Phat 9 Fat Bike Adapter with Surly Moonlander
  • According to Surly, their Moonlander uses a 10mm axle. The Phat 9 Adapter kit you mentioned, part # TRP9 is the correct adapter kit for the Kuat # TR02 or # RU01 Trio roof mount bike racks. We do indeed offer a roof mount bike rack that's compatible with Fat Bikes without needing an adapter. Take a look at the Swagman Skyline, part # S64705. The rack holds the bike by the front wheel using a ratcheting hook and a wheel strap for both the front and rear wheels. No need to remove the...

  • Downhill Mountain Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Ford Freestyle
  • The Kuat NV # N101 that you referenced would do a great job transporting a downhill mountain bike as it only touches the bike at the wheels. This is nice for bikes with carbon frames or alternative style frames that make attaching a bike to the rack difficult. This rack also has a 60 lb per bike capacity which should do well for you as long as your bike(s) weigh less than that. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. Now you will need a hitch to install...
