Expert Answers about Kuat

  • 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.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Subaru Tribeca with 2 inch Hitch
  • As long as the distance from the hitch pin hole on your 2007 Subaru Tribeca to the outer most portion of the bumper is less than 7-1/2 inches the Kuat Transfer Bike Rack part # TS03G would fit it and work 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...

  • 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.

  • 4 Bike Rack that Can Carry Fat Bike and Bike that Weighs 60 lbs
  • For a 4 bike platform rack that can accommodate a fat bike with 4 inch wide tires plus a bike that weighs up to 60 lbs you would want the Thule T2 Classic 4 Bike Platform Rack # TH9044-TH9046. This would basically be the only option we have as most racks don't have the weight capacity of this rack. To be on the safe side you would have to somehow remove 1 lb from the weight of your bike so that it does not exceed the 60 lb weight capacity of the rack.

  • Will the Kuat NV Hold a Road Bike with Fenders.
  • Your road bike with fenders will technically work with the Kuat NV # N101 but we have heard of damage occurring to the fenders when using a bike rack which holds down on the wheels, so I do not recommend the Kuat NV for your bikes. However, I do recommend the Thule Doubletrack Platform Style Rack # TH990XT. This rack secures the bikes on the frame and will not interact with or damage your fenders. This hitch fits 1-1/4" hitches and 2" hitches. The Doubletrack can also tilt down for...

  • Will Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack fit a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid
  • Yes, the Kuat Sherpa part # S101 that you referenced would fit a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid as long as you have a hitch installed on the vehicle like the Draw Tite part # 36540. I attached a review video for this bike rack for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Will the Kuat Beta Bike Rack Fit a 2009 Subaru Forester with Class I Trailer Hitch
  • The Kuat Beta trailer hitch mount bike rack, # B202-114, is an excellent rack. Very light weight and it will fit the Class I trailer hitch on your 2009 Subaru Forester. As with any accessory you are going to want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the rear bumper. I have included links to an article that explains how to take the measurement and a...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations to Clear Rear Spare of a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • To determine if either rack will fit your Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, you will need to take one important measurement. Measure from the center of the 2 inch trailer hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear most part of the vehicle (usually a spare tire on Jeeps). If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches then the racks will fit when in the down position. Typically this measurement is right at 10-1/2 inches on Wranglers so you will need to measure...

  • Will the Kuat NV N101 Fit 2009 Honda Pilot
  • We haven't yet had the opportunity to test fit the Kuat NV # N101 on a 2009 Honda Pilot. To determine if the NV will fit your Pilot, you will want to take a quick measurement. You will want to measure the distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the most rearward point of the bumper. It is easiest to use a yard stick or dowel rod held at the bumper to take this measurement. To find the height clearance needed for your rear hatch, you can slowly open the hatch to find the...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI for a Kuat Beta Bike Carrier
  • For your 2011 Volkswagen Golf I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24825 because it does not come with extra parts you will not need and does not require a stabilization strap to carry a bike rack. This is a Class I trailer hitch and it is compatible with the Kuat Beta, # B202-114. And for straps to secure the front wheels of the bikes to the frame I recommend Softride 4-pack of straps # SR26260.

  • Hitch-Mount Bike Rack Compatibility with OEM Hitch on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • You are correct that the Subaru OEM hitches pose a challenge to using many hitch-mount bike carriers. And you are correct that the best option is a Yakima rack. Yakima has adapted their hitch racks for this fit issue by adding a second hitch pin hole on their current production racks. The Yakima RidgeBack series is your best for a hitch rack - unless you can cancel you OEM hitch and go for a less-costly and better aftermarket unit like the Hidden Hitch # 87568. We offer the 2-bike #...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Mustang
  • Since you are looking for a bike rack that can fold when not in use and you have a distance of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear bumper a hanging style rack that the arms can fold down would be your best option. None of our folding platform racks would clear your bumper when folded. The Thule Helium Bike Rack part # TH9042 would be a great lightweight rack for you to use. It has 14-3/8 inches from the pin hole to the upright mast of...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Carrier For 2013 Toyota Venza Carrying 2 City Cruiser Bikes
  • The Kuat NV 2 Bike Carrier, part # N105, has a maximum weight capacity of 120 lbs, or 60 lbs per bike. You will also want to check the wheelbase of your bike to make certain they do not exceed the maximum of 48 inches to work with this bike carrier. For your 2013 Toyiota Venza, I recommend a bike carrier like the Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Rack, part # HR1450E. Although it is listed as a carrier for electric bikes, it should do well with your city cruisers that weigh over 60 lbs each....

  • Maximum Crossbar Dimensions the Kuat Trio Will Fit
  • The maximum crossbar dimensions that the Kuat Trio part # TR02 will fit is 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" tall. If your crossbars are thicker than that the best solution I can come up with would be to go with an aftermarket rack, but without knowing what vehicle you have it would be hard for me to pick out the correct rack. So you would want to follow the attached link that will allow you to enter your year/make/model and all of the correct roof racks will be listed there. Since this rack is...

  • 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.

  • Will Kuat N102 Bike Rack Work On 2008 Infiniti EX35 With 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • There is a quick way to measure to see if your bike rack will fit. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to the straight edge. This will give you the distance you need to clear the bumper. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to take the measurement.

  • Kuat Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Outback

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...

  • Will Kuat Sherpa Hitch-Mount Bike Rack # S101 Fit on 2010 Toyota RAV4
  • The Kuat Sherpa hitch-mount platform style bike carrier # S101 will fit into both of the hitch sizes offered for your 2010 Toyota RAV4, both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III types. However, when folded up in its storage position the Sherpa will not clear your rear-mounted spare tire cover. Its easy to measure to find out what racks will be compatible with your RAV4. Just have a look at the linked article that illustrates how to take this measurement. Once you know the rack...

  • Kuat NV Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2 inch Trailer Hitch
  • Since you have a 2 inch hitch on your vehicle you would actually want the 2 inch version of the Kuat NV. For that you would want the part # N101 and not the # N102 that you referenced. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Locking Hitch Pin for a Kuat Beta Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The Kuat Beta bike carrier for 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches, # B202-114, has a 3/8 inch diameter hitch pin hole. This is smaller than the standard 1-1/4 inch hitch which has a 1/2 inch diameter pin hole. Because of this the Kuat Beta requires its own special locking pin, # KUATLOCK. No other locks will fit because they will be too big. What I recommend is to use the Kuat lock and to keep moisture and corrosion out you can use some grease and use the key to push it in and work it around...

  • 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.
