Video Transcript for Kuat Base Bike Rack 2-Bike Add-On Review

What's going on everybody. Adam here with Today, we're going to be adding on two bikes to our Kuat NV 2.0. If you have the matte black NV 2.0 base or any other color we're going to be able to add on two other bikes. So if you have a growing family or your passion for the sport is growing and you have a couple more bikes or some friends that come with you it's always nice to have your bike rack grow with your hobby as well. On the other end, we can remove this.

You have an e-bike, you can take this off just as quick as we put it on. And of course, we're going to add a little bit more length to the back of the vehicle. So from the part right there, all the way to the farthest most point now it's going to be about 24 inches longer than it was before. The two added cradles are going to come with some bike cables. So you're still going to have that feature but they aren't going to be keyed alike with the ones on our base.

So if you do want them to be keyed alike, so you don't have so many keys going around on your key fob you can go ahead and grab a locking cord kit here at each and that'll get them all keyed alike. So all you really need is one key. Depending on the bikes you plan on putting on these extra two cradles, if it is a kid's bike, we do have an adapter that is going to come with the two bike add-on. And if you have a fat tire bike under 40 pounds it's also going to come with a fat tire adapter kit as well. If you need more, we have some here on our website.

To help limit sway, I do recommend putting the heavier bikes closer to the vehicle. And then some of the lighter carbon frame bikes like the one you see here out towards the end, it just kind of helps limit that sway. But it's going to work exactly how the NV did before. Straps right in. And we are ready to go.

I really do think this is going to be a great solution for you if you have a growing love for the hobby or just a growing family but one thing that might not fit your situation is the fact that we're going to cut the capacity from 60 pounds down to 40 pounds. So if you do have a fat tire bike or an electric bike that exceeds that 40 pounds but you still need to get four bikes to and fro, you can grab these Saris SuperClamp EX 4. So that one is going to have 60 pounds per bike on the closest two cradles but then anything after that's going to be about 40 pounds. So if you do need to get four bikes to and fro and one of the four is gonna be a an electric bike or a fat tire bike over 40 pounds definitely check out the SuperClamp EX 4. The only other thing that is left is just to show you how to convert the 2.0 into the four bike platform style rack. Fresh out of the box, the first thing we needed to do is assemble the add-on. But after you do that, what we need to do is take this end cap off. If you just have a cap like this, if you have a NV 2.0 base just take this off. But if you have the bike stand, you can take that off just the same exact way. This is the tool that comes with the add on kit. You go ahead and just unscrew it. Lefty loosey, righty tighty. Once this big, long bolt comes out. The rest of the cap should come with it just like that. Now we can take the add-on, we've got two little studs at the end and align this up to where it goes in like that. If you have an extra set of hands, that's be great. It's not, it is possible to do it by yourself. What we're going to do is take the tool that was included with our kit. It's gonna be a little bit bigger and tighten those down and we want to make sure to tighten them down pretty evenly. If you are doing this by yourself, just kind of prop it up with your knee and then we can take the tool and I'm just going to get one side kind of just started make sure it's going in. And then once I get that one going then I'll hop over to the other one. And then I'm going to jump from bolt to bolt just to make sure that it's going to be nice and even. Now that both of our bolts are nice and tight, give it a good shake, make sure it's seated into position properly and then we can go ahead and replace the cap or the bike stand how it was before. It's exactly the same thing but just a little bit farther away from our vehicle. So line this up. And tighten it down. And just like that, we turned our two bike platform style rack into a four bike platform-style rack. Now we have more rackspace for a couple more friends or maybe just the kiddos bikes. And again, that was the NV 2.0 bike add-on..

2-Bike Add-On for Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Matte Black - BA02B

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (18 Customer Reviews)

This 2-bike add-on lets you transform your Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-bike rack (BA22B - sold separately) into a 4-bike rack. It holds 2 bikes by the wheels with adjustable hooks and sliding ratcheting straps. Integrated cable locks included.


Delivered quickly. Product is as advertised. Best pricing I found anywhere. The rack took ~1 hr to assemble - a bit challenging to figure out but got easier as it progressed. It takes <5 mins to attach this to the base unit rack while mounted on car. This speed of install will make it easier to change between 2 and 4 bike arrangements as needed. Note: the integrated locks have a different key than base unit - will now need to keep a pair of keys handy. Not a huge fan of the integrated locking gizmos - they work but are awkward to engage, these could be designed better for easier use it seems.

Not great, but okay. The locking mechanisms for the cable locks are garbage - they slip out of the ‘holsters’ and drag on the ground and 2 are hence ruined. The overall ability to convert from 2 to 4 bikes with ease is nice, but the locks get zero stars. For as expensive as this rack is, these should be better designed.
Darren - 12/20/2021


Excellent rack - rock solid, holds bike without wobbling. Fits 2021 Toyota Rav4 XLE with Toyota Hitch perfectly. Easy to tilt up and down (but it takes 2 hands to do so, which is a little annoying). At the risk of stating the obvious, it is a little annoying to leave it on all the time - I don't like leaving it horizontal for fear that a car will clip it when driving, so I keep it in the raised position.. But this means that I have to lower it every time I want to access my hatch. Lock works well also. The kids bike adapter seems to work fine (only tried once).

One downer - some of the fasteners are already rusting a little (see pic), and I've only had it on my car for 3 months (May to August in PA).

This product should not be left on the hitch all of the time. Leaving it on will cause excessive rust. Please view page 17 of the manufacturers User Guide under tips and tricks to see how to get the most life out of your bike rack: https:www.kuat.comwp-contentuploadsnv-2-user_guide.pdf
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 11/09/2021


allows my to carry bikes for the full crew.
you place the order. Tell them your key number so it matches.


The rack is well made and as sturdy as you would expect from a great company like Kuat. I discovered that I actually have the standard rack instead of the Base, however, other than the finish (this extension is matte black, the standard is gloss), it bolts together perfectly and works fine. Amazing customer service from etrailer as always!


This bicycle carrier is fantastic! It takes seconds to secure the bicycle to the vehicle and it is very secure. The addition allows 4 bikes and does protrude from the back of the vechicle a bit, but overall a very secure and an easy carrier. Although a bit more expensive than others, this trailer will probably last the for years to come. Etrailer was less expensive than others with free shipping and delivery was very prompt. Will use them again.


First off Etrailer Corp. did a fantastic job with my order. Not only did I get a very good deal. Etrailer Corp went beyond that and quick shipped my order. Carrier assembly was four bolts to install and tightened and the carrier was ready to use. This is the best carrier for anyone that wants a safe way to carry their extra bikes. This easily attaches to my Kuat base carrier to carry additional two bikes. And it is easily comes back off with the removal of two bolts and lock. No more frame scratches and the quickest way to mount or dismount in seconds. You can load and unload in under a minute! Would recommend to anyone.


Kuat makes the best bike racks and their customer service is top notch. Full stop.

Oh, also, comes through with great prices!

Super solid build. A little tricky to assemble with the bolts since it's so heavy, but with two people it's a 30 minute job.


I love the rack! Working with E-Trailer was seamless. The best part was despite the delay in shipping from Kuat due to Covid they kept my order in active status so that when it was available I didn't have to do anything. Thank you!


use a lot. great product!

  • Wheel Adapters Included with Kuat NV 4 Bike Carrier
    The Kuat NV 2.0 does not include a wheel adapter for 20-14 inch wheels, it was sold separately as part 016-025-00-00, but is no longer available

  • Expanding a Kuat NV 2.0 Base Trailer Hitch Receiver Bike Rack
    The Kuat Base NV 2.0, part # BA22B actually has its own add on kit as part # BA02B. According to Kuat, the parts are not compatible between the NV 2.0 and the Base NV 2.0. I've included a video review of the Base rack so you can see how it works.

  • Can the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B be Used as Only a 2-Bike Rack
    The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B that you referenced can be split and be just a 2 bike rack if you only needed to carry 2 bikes. And then you could easily install the add-on section to make it a 4-bike rack. The add-on section though can not be used as an independent bike rack though. It can only be used as an expansion for the base portion of the rack.

  • What Wheel Size Requires an Adapter with the Kuat NV Base Bike Rack
    With the Kuat NV Base 4-Bike Rack part # BA22B-BA02B you have to use the adapter # 016-025-00-00 if the bike wheel is between 20 and 24 inches. Unfortunately this part has been discontinued, and there is not a replacement option.

  • Will the Backup Camera on a 2011 Honda Pilot be Blocked with a Kuat 2.0 Bike Rack?
    From my research on the 2011 Honda Pilot, the backup camera is located above the center of the rear license plate below the Honda emblem. I called my contact at Kuat, and he told me that the measurement of the hitch pin hole to the tallest part with only two trays on the rack (when folded) on the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B is 24-3/4 inches. While I cannot confirm with certainty if the folded NV 2.0 would block your camera, I recommend measuring the pinhole to the camera location...

  • Will The Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Fit My 2012 Honda CRV With 2" Receiver?
    Yes, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2 Bike Carrier # BA22B will fit the 2" receiver on your 2012 Honda CR-V without any issue. Also, if you wanted to add 2 bikes down the road you can get the 2-Bike Add-On for Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Matte Black # BA02B. I attached demonstration videos for you.

  • Carrying An E-Bike On A 1 1/4" Hitch Receiver
    Yes, there is an adapter that would change a 1 1/4" hitch receiver to a 2" hitch receiver. But will be some limitations. Any adapter you add will reduce the maximum tongue weight of your hitch receiver by 50%. Many 1 1/4" hitch receivers only have a 200lb maximum tongue weight. If that is your situation the maximum tongue weight would only be 100lbs. That means your Kuat NV 2 and the e-bike you want to carry cannot weigh more than 100lbs total. In this instance you might be able to carry...

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Add-On Difficult to Install
    Adding or removing the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B for the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B really isn't too difficult - it's almost like installing it into anther hitch to be honest. Attached is a review video where we go over a few things for the add-on section as well as what it looks like to install the part (jump to minute mark 2:40). Basically you'll remove the end cap on the Base, insert the Add-On, tighten up the Allen bolts, and then place the cap on the end of the Add-On.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Expanding From 2 Bike To 4 Bikes
    I do have a recommendation for you as the Saris SuperClamp EX Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SA4025F is not expandable for 3 or 4 bikes. We have the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B that is rated to carry 2 bikes up to 60lbs each. You can add the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B to increase capacity to 4 bikes. When you move to the 4 bike rack capacity is limited to 40lbs per bike. We also have it listed as the 4 Bike Rack # BA22B-BA02B so you can see what it looks like together and only have to order 1 item.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry Up to 4 Bikes on a Lexus NX200t
    Verify the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch recevier and your Lexus NX200t to make sure you can handle the weight of a fully loaded bike rack. You definitely need a 2 inch Class III hitch on the Lexus which are available so hopefully you already have one. For a rack I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base, part # BA22B-BA02B. It's a platform rack that can carry up to 4 bikes that weigh 40 pounds each. If you're only carrying 2 bikes they can weigh up to 60 pounds each. It uses...

  • Trailer Hitch For A 2019 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 with Factory Step Bumper
    For your Sprinter 2500, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13358 that will do a great job for your bike carrier and more should you decide to tow later. This hitch model is designed for either the 144" or 170" wheelbase Sprinter vans with the factory step bumper and is a confirmed fit. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B-BA02B as a solid option to carry your 4 bikes for an outing. The ratcheting hooks and straps mount the bikes by the tire so there...

  • Vertical Load Limit On A 2020 Tesla Model X
    It seems that you're talking about tongue weight as it is the downward force or the "vertical load" on the hitch. 120lbs is way to light to be the gross trailer weight rating. That being said, the Draw-Tite # 76143 2 inch hitch will fit your 2020 Tesla Model X. It has a gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs. This is how heavy your trailer can be to tow. It has a maximum tongue weight of 750 lbs (Downward vertical force on hitch). This hitch is a lot stronger and can handle heavier accessories...

    Yes we do, it sounds like you're looking for the: -2-Bike Add-On for Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # BA02B. This is the two-bike add-on you're needing for your Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # BA22B. Additionally, since you did mention that you also wanted the access ramp, we also have that available: -Access Ramp for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # ANVBRB. included are a couple of videos for you to check out as well.

  • Can Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender Be Used with Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack
    Yes, the Kuat Hi-Lo Hitch Extender # HL20B can be used with your Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Rack like # BA22B-BA02B. The only thing you will want to keep in mind is that the adapter does reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. For example if the hitch on your Jeep has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds, this will be reduced to 175 pounds when using the Hi-Lo Extender. This means the combined weight of the NV Carrier (around 82 pounds) and your loaded bikes can't...

  • 4 Bike Rack For Pleasure-Way Lexor FL Motorhome
    I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # BA22B-BA02B which is capable of supporting up to 40 pounds each for 4 bikes, or 60 pounds each for 2 bikes. To achieve the clearance needed, you will need to use the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks # PVP20B in conjunction. This will allow you to pivot your rack up to 120° away, giving you plenty of clearance.

  • Is Kuat NV 2.0 BA22B-BA02B or Inno INH142 Tire Hold Better for 20 Inch Bikes
    The Inno Tire Hold # INH142 4-bike rack will accommodate children't bikes with 20 inch wheels or adult bikes with up to 29 inch wheels. Inno tells me that a 33 inch wheelbase bike will just fit on the rack. The Kuat NV 2.0 4-bike, part # BA22B-BA02B does not have an adapter for kid's bikes. One huge feature offered by the NV 2.0 is the add-on feature. The rearmost 2-bike portion of the rack is removable, which is handy for when only two bikes need to be carried, and the fact that the rack...

  • Platform 4-Bike Rack that Can be Used as a 2 Bike Rack If Needed
    Unlike the Kuat NV 4 bike rack # BA22B-BA02B the Inno bike rack # INH142 does not have ability to be used as either a 2 bike or 4 bike configuration. If this feature is important to you the best option would be the NV. The NV is widely considered to be the best bike rack out there so this would be a really great choice that you'd definitely be happy with. I attached a review video link to this page for more info as well.

  • Replacement Lock Cylinders and Keys For Kuat Bike Racks To Have One Key System With 2-Bike Add-On
    To have all your locks keyed alike on the 2-Bike Add-On # BA02B and your Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B you will need the Replacement Lock Cores for Kuat Cargo Carriers and Bike Racks # LOCO6. The replacements come with 6 lock cores and 2 keys for the new cores. Also included is the core removal key and pin tool for removing the cores.

  • Best Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2021 Volvo XC40
    The hitch that I recommend for your 2021 Volvo XC40 is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76245. This hitch has a bolt-on no drill installation and will provide you with a 2" x 2" receiver opening which is the most common size used for hitch accessories such as a bike rack. A bike rack that I really like is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack # BA22B. This bike rack will fit in the trailer hitch that I recommended above. The rack will fit 2 bikes and has a foot pedal that lets...

  • Can I Use the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet # HRRV-1 with Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On?
    Yes! Since the Kuat NV 2.0 with 2-Bike Add-On like the # BA22B-BA02B only weighs 82 pounds, you are good to go! This is because the Hollywood Racks Rack Valet Rolling Storage Cart # HRRV-1 has a maximum weight capacity of 100 pounds.

  • Recommended 4 Bike Platform Style Bike Rack for a 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE
    Four mount platform bike racks are great options for families to transport 4 of their bikes but since your 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE sits so close to the ground and requires more clearance to open the rear hatch I'm afraid that you will not be able to completely open the rear hatch of your Sienna with a platform style carrier (see attached video of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z as an example). If you still want this route, I recommend going with the Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B...

    The Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack like part # BA22B-BA02B is only offered for 2" hitches. There are separate adapters that allow a 2" bike rack to be used in a 1-1/4" hitch but these cut the capacity of the trailer hitch in half which will not leave you with enough left for a bike rack and four bikes. I know this is not your first choice but the best and really only option to use the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 4-Bike Platform Rack which is an excellent choice would be to switch to a 2"...

  • Best Expandable Bike Rack Recommendation for 2020 Ford Explorer Carrying Carbon Frame Bikes
    For carbon framed bikes you need to carry them with a bike rack that only touches the bikes by the tires since the frame material is delicate and easily damaged. So for that you could use the very popular and easy to use Kuat NV part # BA22B which is widely considered to be the best bike rack for carbon bikes. Then when you are ready to expand it to a 4-bike rack you'd just need the part # BA02B and you'd be set.
