Video Transcript for Kuat Sherpa and NV Base Bike Racks Children's Bike Adapter Review

Colin: Hey guys this is Colin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a quick look at the children's bike adapter for the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and the NV 2.0 bike racks. With my children's bike currently loaded on my NV 2.0, I can't get the wheel secure, which means I can't take my kids bike with me if I want to take him out for a ride. You could bring it back out here and then secure it that way, but that leaves more room for the bike to come straight out of the cradle. With the children's bike adapter on the bottom of our hook, we're going to be able to bring our hook all the way up and then secure it at the top of the tire in the proper space. If you have multiple children's bikes that you need to carry, just purchase as many of these as you need.The adapter is easily removable for if you don't need to take a kid's bike out that day.

All you need to do is just remove the hook and loop straps and take them out of their loops. The strap's just securing it to the bottom side of our wheel hook and we just pull it down and out. You can see that curvature on the inside matches the contour of our wheel hook perfectly. When installing it, we'll just bring it up and through and reversing it so you can see the loops on this side. Push it all the way up.

You're just going to bring the hook and loop fasteners around. Go through the loop and tighten it up and secure it.The adapter is going to be made out of the same material that you wheel hook is so it's going to be very durable and it's not going to stick out too much from your bike rack, not going to be too noticeable.Thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our look at the kid's bike adaptor for the Kuat Sherpa and NV 2.0 bike racks.

Always my go to for trailer, RV and anything hitch related like bike rack goodies. These guys are top notch, very prompt and more often then not always have what you need. Even when most places don’t have an item I’m looking for, these guys usually come through and have several in stock.


Came as my Kuat NV 2.0 rack perfectly and hold the bikes nice and still


Great bile rack. the adapter works for my 24 inch fat tire E-bike.


The adapter to work with smaller wheels on kids bikes does NOT work. It dropped my daughter’s bike on the highway twice.


This rack is awesome. very sturdy construction, paint and color is top notch, and holds the bikes perfectly and does not wobble when driving. have used this on weekends and when driving across country. very happy with my purchase.


This product is great! I could not find the Kuat 20-24” tire adapter in any store (online or brick and mortar) that sales Kuat bike racks. From now on, I’m going to go straight to etrailer to find sports rack equipment!
The staff is extremely helpful and are truly interested in providing the best quality service and products for their customers. Thank you
Happy camper


Works great for getting smaller bikes on the rack!


I have been in search of a really good hitch mounted bike rack for some time. I did a lot of research and settled on the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. But before I ordered it, I called I spoke with Lori B. who answered all my questions about this rack and made my shopping experience quick and informative. This rack is so well constructed and beautifully finished, rugged and very easy to use. On our first trip out, my 12 year old son was able to quickly and easily remove his bike with no help. The rack tilts down with little effort making access to the back of our station wagon a breeze. I would recommend this rack to anyone looking for a well built easy to use 2 bike rack.

My neighbor told me about and it was great advice. I will be ordering from again. Their service and selection are amazing and they actually have people answering the phone who know their products.


rack is awesome, purchase was quick and easy :)


Easy to use and very high quality. Typical Kuat, in other words.


Great product that works as I expected it to. I have had this for a year now, and we have not had any problems.


Very easy to install and fits the kids bikes well


This worked perfect to fit our son’s bi ke.


Performs as advertised.


Works fine for 20" wheels. Easy to attach or detach. Simple to use and matches the rack well.


Got what I ordered in a timely fashion.


works as advertised on our kids' bikes!


I use these for our bmx freestyle and race bikes with 16-22" wheels. This product is perfect. Sturdy, fast to install (and un-install if you wish), and stays put. I leave these on my rack full-time, without ever taking off... thru car washes, etc., and they have never loosened. The only thing that hasn't bothered me, but has bothered my friend, is that it CAN scratch the bike's paint because of the hard plastic material. But I have yet to experience this.


The part fit perfectly & the order was filled promptly. My only disappointment is that the Kuat bike rack was so expensive, and this adapter should have been included in the original purchase. Seems inappropriate for such an expensive bike rack not to come with all the adaptation required for the many bike styles readily used out there. That however is not your fault whatsoever.


I have made multiple purchases from and could not be any happier. From all the online installation videos they provide to the fast shipping, they are the first place I choose when I need anything “towing” related.


Exactly what I needed. Quick shipping and notices after sale. Knew when it was going to arrive.


Makes it possible to carry kids bikes and our folding Bike Fridays on the hitch. Works perfectly.


While I would rather not have to keep up with and extra part to carry my sons 20" wheel bmx and 24" wheel mountain bike the part it self works great and keeps the bike firmly in place.


Great Product and works great with our Kuat NV 2.0. Perfect for taking kids bikes with us to the trails!!!


Fast shipping and exactly what I needed. Works perfectly for my daughters 16” bike with the nv 2.0. Installation was simple and performance was perfect when I used it today.

  • Is The Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack Capable Of Carrying E-Bikes?
    Yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B will allow you to carry fender-less E-bikes. The bike with battery removed must weigh under 60lbs per bike. This rack as is will fit a tire size between 25"-29" in diameter and up to 3" wide. For tires 20" to 24" you will need the Bike Adapter # 016-025-00-00, and if you have tires wider than 3" the Phat Bike Adapter Kit # APBK will fit a tire up to 5". The Access Ramp # ANVBRB will make loading and unloading your heavier E-bikes much easier.

  • Saris SuperClamp EX 2 vs Kuat Sherpa 2.0: Which is Easier to Lift Bike Onto
    To load the inside bike on the Saris SuperClamp EX # SA4025F you would not necessarily need to lift the bike vertically over the tilted arms. What you can do is lift the bike up high enough to get on the wheel cradles but instead angle the bike in and push it to the side far enough that the back tire clears the other arm of the rack. Then you can bring it back to the other side and center it on the rack and fit the cradles. On the other hand the Kuat Sherpa # SH12G might be a slightly...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation that Can Fit E-Bikes, 24 inch Wheel, and Can be Expanded
    Your best option overall will be the Kuat NV part # NV22G. It is a 2-bike platform rack that can accommodate a 24 inch diameter wheel with the adapter # 016-025-00-00 is lighter weight for a platform rack at 52 lbs, has a weight capacity of 60 lb per bike which you'd need for an E-bike and can be expanded to a 4-bike rack with the add-on part # NA22G. It's hard for a bike rack to cover all the things you mentioned but this rack does so and is considered to be one of the nicest bike racks...

  • Best Bike Rack For Kid Bikes With 18 Inch Wheels
    The Children's bike adapter for Kuat Sherpa 2.0, NV 2.0, and NV 2.0 Base Bike Racks part # 016-025-00-00 minimum wheel diameter is 20" so it would not be compatible with your son's Kent Abyss with 18" wheels The best option I can provide for you that I can ensure will work with the smaller diameter wheel is the Hollywood Racks part # HR200Z with the kid bike wheel hoops part # HRSW-ADP-2. These are the only adapters I have been able to find that works with a smaller than 20 inch diameter...

  • Can Kuat NV 2.0 4 Bike Rack NV22G-NA22G Be Used With Bikes That Have Fenders?
    Thanks for the info on your bikes! I did not find any pictures of a 20" Frog 52 with a fender, but I was able to find a picture of your Giant Quick E+1 and as long as both bikes have fenders that go the same distance forward you shouldn't have any problems using the Kuat NV 2.0 4 Bike Platform Rack # NV22G-NA22G. This is a great easy to use bike rack that tilts while the bikes are loaded, and has a built in repair stand if needed when out on the trailer. The wheel hooks can go in front...

  • Is the Kuat Children's Bike Adapter Compatible with the Thule T2 Pro XTR
    The Kuat Children's Bike Adapter, part # 016-025-00-00, is not compatible with the Thule T2 Pro XTR, part # TH83JV, or any Thule bike rack because it is specifically designed to fit the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and NV 2.0 racks. The only choice to mount your 16" wheel kids bike is to use a hanging-style rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR, along with an adapter like the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part # HRBA-PRO. I've linked to video reviews of these two parts.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For Carrying a Bike Rack With a 2023 Chevrolet Camaro
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11900 will allow you to carry a bike rack on your 2023 Chevrolet Camaro. This class I hitch allows for you to use a bike rack like the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH12G. The Kuat only weighs 32lbs thanks to its aluminum construction and is capable of hauling 2 bikes weighing up to 40lbs each. This carrier will fit bikes with 25"-29" wheels up to 3" wide and a wheelbase up to 47". If you have a 20"-24" wheel you will need the Adapter # 016-025-00-00 to fit those...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Sonic Hatchback
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2019 Chevy Sonic is the Draw-Tite # 24878 because it is an easy bolt-on installation that will not require drilling into your Sonic's frame to install. Like you said, the available hitches for your Sonic have a 1-1/4 inch receiver, and they are Class I rated. This means that the bike rack you get would also have to be rated for a Class I hitch. The one I recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because it offers a superb combination of function...

  • Will Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Work on 2009 Honda Fit Sport
    The Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # NV12G will absolutely work on your 2009 Honda Fit Sport. The only thing you need is a trailer hitch if you do not have one and the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24826 is the best option because you aren't going to need to use stabilizing straps to support a bike rack like you would with the Curt # C11064 hitch that also fits your '09 Fit. I've added a link to a video of the Draw-Tite hitch being installed on a 2009 Honda Fit for you to check out. The...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4 Bike Rack Fit For a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13153 is a great choice for your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL. It has a maximum tongue weight of 900lbs which is going to be plenty for a 4 bike hitch rack. The receiver pin to bumper length is 4-1/2" and this will help you choose the right bike rack. The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22G-NA22G is a great platform rack that will carry 4 bikes. It uses a wheel mount system that fits 25-29" wheels. A Bike Adapter # 016-025-00-00 will allow you to fit 20-24" wheels...

  • Comparing Kuat Sherpa 2.0 vs Kuat NV Base 2.0 Bike Racks
    The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22B and NV 2.0 Base # BA22B bike racks are both excellent bike racks but in my opinion the NV 2.0 just edges out the Sherpa 2.0 due to a few key features. As-is the Sherpa 2.0 can handle 40 lb bikes with a max wheelbase of 47" while the NV 2.0 Base can handle 60 lb bikes with a max wheelbase of 50". Looking past that though you can't do much else with the Sherpa 2.0 but you have the option for a variety of add-ons for the NV 2.0 Base: Phat Bike Adapter Kit - #...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2" Hitch Pin Hole Less than 1-1/2 Inches from the Hitch Face
    While we do have a great rack that can work with your pin hole location on your 2" hitch, there is unfortunately no way to use the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 with your factory hitch if the pinhole is less than 1.5" from the face of the hitch. With that being said, we do have other ramped bike rack options that work with that pin location. For that option, I recommend using the Kuat NV 2.0 - 2" Hitches # BA22B (matte black), # NV22G (gunmetal gray), or # NV22B (metallic black). With the...

  • Lightweight Aluminum Bike Rack Recommendation for 2 Townie-Style Bikes
    If you are looking for a quality lightweight aluminum rack with rust resistance, the Thule Helium # TH9042PRO is one of the most lightweight aluminum racks we carry at only 19 pounds. You are absolutely correct about needing a bike frame adapter bar # RRRBCA021 for using your 2 townie-style step-thru bikes with this rack. For another recommendation of a rust-resistant aluminum rack that doesn't require an adapter, I recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0. The rack comes with a few color options: -...

  • Does the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Include the Childrens Bike Adapter?
    I just spoke with my rep at Kuat. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes item # SH22G does include the Children's Bike Adapter for Kuat Sherpa 2.0 item # 016-025-00-00. However, if you need two or there isn't one included with the rack you have to contact Kuat and they will send you one or two for free.

    I have a great 3-bike option for you. However, the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 is not available as a 3-bike option. If you are looking for a ramped solution to carry 3 bikes, the best option is to use the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # BA22B-BA02B (matte black), NV22G-NA22G (gunmetal gray), or # NV22B-NA22B (metallic black).
