Video Transcript for Kuat Piston Pro X Bike Rack 1-Bike Add-On Review

Evangeline Hey everyone, it's Evangeline here at eTrailer and today we're taking a look at the one bike add-on for your Kuat Piston Pro X Platform Rack. The Kuat Piston Pro X is an awesome bike rack. It has pretty much everything you need to carry around your bikes of different shapes and different sizes. But, what if you want to bring more bikes Maybe your family grows or you have more friends that you need to bring along with you. Well, in that case, your bike rack can grow with you. So there's a very easy expansion process.

You just need make sure you get the add-on whether you want do one bike add or the two bike add-on they can fit with your two bike base rack. This is gonna work the exact same way as your other platforms or your trace. So you have the same hydropnuematic piston the same Kashima coating, the same dimensions as well as, not exactly the weight capacity. Once you add on, you do decrease your per bike weight capacity, but for the tire width as well as the size of bikes, those are gonna be the same. So check out the three bike platform rack video if you want to see in action.

What we're gonna focus on here is how to assemble it and it's a very simple process. Let's take a look at that. So that Allen key use to tighten down your bike rack, well you're gonna use that to loosen this bolt. That large bolt in the middle, fit that Allen Wrench into it and then loosen it so you can take the end cap off. Then get your single bike add-on and this has two bolts on the end of it, so you're just gonna want to line that up with your current bike rack set up.

Now I just need to get it in place. Once you have that in place you can then use your tool again to tighten down on those two bolts. So I try to alternate tightening them down so it's not skewed one way or the other. But once both of them are tighten down nice and secure you're then gonna put the end cap back on. Once that end cap is secure, just pop that tool right back in.

You can lock it if you want to and then just double check your bike rack. So just check that everything is secure but also you can hook up the wiring if that's an option for you. It does have a magnetic mount, which means that that wiring should automatically connect to your base's wiring setup. And then if all the lights look good and everything is secure, that's it for the install of your add-on. This is probably one of the easiest! Everything you needed for it was included with your rack with having the Allen wrench right there at the end and having those bolts right there. I just pretty much take off the end cap put the add-on on, tighten it down and that's it. Everything else is connected and just like that I now have a three bike platform rack. And also with having a longer bike rack you might be concerned about that extra clearance and if everything is still lit up. But here, even with this being folded down, the add-on has that included light too so you can always see how long your bike rack is and that's gonna be the same for your two bike add-on as well. And that right there was a look at our Kuat Piston Pro X one bike add-on here at eTrailer. My name is Evangeline and I hope you enjoyed the journey..
