Even though it took a very long time to get the item (not etrailer's fault at all), we were very happy to get the item and trailer is to be commended for their diligence. Thank you. Through all this time, I was kept informed of the status with periodic updates. This is a very difficult item to procur so we're very pleased.

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Accessories and Parts

  • What Version of Kuat Transfer Does Add On KU64FR Fit
    I wish we had the solution you are looking for but since your Transfer is the first generation model we don't have an add-on that works. The add-on part number you mentioned # KU57FR only fits the V2 models part # KU64FR. So if you were looking for a reason to upgrade your bike rack now would be a good time if you need a 2 bike rack.

  • Will the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Add On Fit on a T201B Transfer V2
    Yes. The # KU57FR is compatible with the T201B Kuat Transfer V2 1 Bike Platform Rack # KU64FR.

  • Best Lightweight, Well Made and Rust Resistant Platform Style Bike Rack
    One of my favorite cost effective bike rack that has everything you're looking for is the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU64FR with the one bike add on # KU57FR. It's only about 45 lbs, well made and will not rust over time. Whatever metal components there are have a powder coated finish so it will not rust even if you keep it on your rack for a long time. Check out my review video to see how it works!

  • Bike Rack For Electric Bike On A 2013 Kia Soul
    If you have a class I hitch # 24839 on your 2013 Kia Soul then you can use the Kuat Transfer # KU64FR. This is compatible with your 1-1/4" hitch receiver and can hold up to 60lbs per bike. If you were to add the one bike add on # KU57FR then you would only have 40lbs per bike.

  • 1 Bike Add-On To Convert Kuat Transfer V2 To A 3-Bike Carrier
    If you have the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # KU84FR then the correct add-on to convert it to a 3-bike carrier is 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer Bike Racks # KU57FR. You cannot use the 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer 1-Bike Platform Rack # TSAOB that you referenced because that is for the V1 and it doesn't fit the V2 that you have. I attached a demonstration video for you.

  • Can Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Add-On be Used for 1-Bike or 2-Bike Transfer Rack
    The 1 Bike Add-On # TSAOB is designed for the V1 (version 1) of the Transfer 1-Bike rack. The 1 Bike Add-On # KU57FR is designed for the V2 (version 2) of the Transfer 1-Bike, 2-Bike, and 3-Bike racks. I think that is where you're seeing the conflicting information.

  • Is Kuat Transfer V2 for 4 Bikes the 3 Bike Version with 1 Bike Add On
    The Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 4 bikes part # KU77FR is essentially the 3 bike version # KU24FR with the add on # KU57FR.

  • Does The Kuat 1 Bike Add-On Work With The First Generation Kuat Transfer Bike Racks?
    The 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer Bike Racks # KU57FR you mention is for the current generation Kuat bike racks like the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU64FR or # KU84FR and is not compatible with the first generation Kuat Transfer bike rack. Instead, you'll want to use the 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer 1-Bike Platform Rack # TSAOB for your Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack # TS01B (NLA).

  • Recommended Single Platform Bike Rack Adapting to Two Bike Rack
    Thanks for your kind words! We do have bike racks that can be single or two bike carriers. I recommend the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack # KU64FR because the design makes loading easy for one or two bikes because there isn't a bar in the middle so you can walk the bike from the balanced middle right to the cradles. Then you would add the 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer # KU57FR. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Mongoose Fat Tire Bike
    If your Mongoose Fat Tire Bike is less than 60 lbs you can use the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU64FR. Like most racks, you'll need to get a fat tire adapter # APBK so the strap fits around your fat tires. If you decide you want more bikes loaded up, you can use this # KU57FR to add another bike too!

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and 3-Bike Rack for a 2022 Honda CR-V
    I recommend going with the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98848 for your 2022 Honda CR-V because it has a matte black finish that will do a great job at blending in with your fascia as well as hide any scratches that might happen from road debris hitting the hitch. When it comes to a bike rack I really like the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # KU24FR because it has a foot pedal for tilting/folding the carrier and a U-Shaped frame which makes it much easier to install and remove your...

  • Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Rack Compatibility with Trek Pure Sport
    The # KU64FR Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack is a tire mount rack that fits a variety of bike frame styles. It supports up to a 50 inch wheelbase bike and the Trek Pure Sport has a wheelbase of 46.25 inches so it does fit your bike. It's worth noting an additional bike add on capability with the 1 Bike Add-On for Kuat Transfer 1-Bike Platform Rack part # KU57FR. A hitch of 1 1/4 inch or 2 inches is required for this rack so we would be happy to recommend one as well should you not...

  • Best Hitch Bike Rack For A 2015 Toyota Sienna
    I would definitely go with the Kuat Transfer # KU84FR. It's a great rack and it cleared my 2001 Tahoe rear hatch which is around the same size at your 2015 Toyota Sienna hatch. The main thing that causes hatch contact is the bikes handlebars. You need to put the shortest handlebars on the closest cradle towards your vehicle. You can also add one bike to the end of this rack # KU57FR to make a two bike configuration.

  • 1-1/4 Hitch Mount Folding Platform Style Bike Rack with Smallest Distance From Bumper When Folded Up
    When determining how far a rack is going to stick out on your vehicle, most racks are going to be measured from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest part of the rack; so the distance it's going to stick out depends on the receiver tube of your hitch and your vehicle's bumper. With that being said, I recommend going with the Kuat Transfer 1 # KU64FR since it offers the most narrow profile behind your vehicle and has the ability to be added onto with a 2nd platform to carry...

  • 4 Bike Carrier That Can Be Reduced To 3 Bike Carrier To Save Weight And Space
    Between the Saris SuperClamp EX 4 Bike Platform Rack # SA4026F and the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU24FR, I would go with the Kuat because it sounds like it will better suit your needs. The Kuat is 12lbs lighter (without add-on) and will be much easier to remove or install on your vehicle than the Saris. This will also be a significantly cheaper setup, even after figuring in the cost of the 1 Bike Add-On # KU57FR. A maximum tire width of 3" is able to be mounted. Use Phat Bike Adapter...

  • Best Trunk Mounted vs Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for 2016 Mazda CX-5
    If you need just a trunk mounted bike rack, then the Yakima FullBack 3 # Y02633 is a fit for your vehicle and can carry 3 bikes. This mounts to your hatch and is a premium trunk mounted bike rack with locks, nice anti-sway cradles, and will do relatively less damage to your hatch. When possible though, I always recommend getting a hitch and a hitch mounted rack. They are easier to mount/dismount, further away from your vehicle, and are much more stable. Both your car and your bikes will...

  • Choosing Between Kuat Transfer KU64FR and RockyMounts MonoRail Solo RKY10007 Single Bike Racks
    Either the Kuat Tranfer 1 # KU64FR or the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo 1 # RKY10007 would handle the bikes you describe easily. Both would hold the bikes by the tires, so the fact that the rack won't come into contact with the frame will work well with your Carbon Fiber framed bike as well as the aluminum framed one. Either rack has sufficient room to handle your 45 inch wheelbase mountain bike as well as the 3 inch wide tires. Both racks offer raised shanks for tons of ground clearance,...

  • Comparing Kuat Sherpa 2.0 and Transfer V2 Bike Racks for a 2014 Toyota Prius V
    Thank you for your purchase of the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7192 for your 2014 Toyota Prius v! Both the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22G and the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU84FR are excellent bike racks but for what you're looking to get out of a bike rack I recommend going with the Transfer V2 over the Sherpa 2.0. The Sherpa 2.0 is lighter at 32 lbs while the Transfer V2 weighs in at 47 lbs but the Transfer V2 has a unique U-Shaped frame that makes it easier to load/unload your...

  • Recommended Carrier For Various Styles Of Electric Bikes
    The Kuat Transfer V2 2-Bike Rack # KU84FR is an excellent bike rack that is compatible with motorhomes, RV's, and travel trailers. This has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike and can hold up to 3" wide tires; for fat bikes use Fat Bike Adapter Kit # APBK which is an add-on that allows for up to 4.8" wide tires. There are built-in locks to secure the bikes and carrier to your vehicle. While this holds 2 bikes, you can use 1 Bike Add-On # KU57FR to haul a third bike on this rack; keep in...
