Rotating Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV 2.0 wheel hooks

The NV 2.0 Base has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying carbon bikes or bikes with a custom paint job. To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the cradle, rotate the arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook.


Large Front Wheel Cradles

Kuat NV 2.0 front wheel cradles

The front wheel cradles will easily accommodate fat bike wheels. They can also be adjusted to perfectly fit each bike's wheelbase. Use the included Allen key stored in the compartment at the back of the rack to adjust


Sliding Ratcheting Straps

Kuat NV 2.0 ratcheting straps

Ratcheting rear-wheel straps slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes with a variety of wheelbases. Press the quick-release button on the strap buckle to remove your bikes. An extender strap is included for use with 1 fat bike. Additional extender straps (sold separately) are available if you have more than 1 fat bike.


Foot Lever for Easy Tilting and Folding

Kuat NV 2.0 foot lever

The spring-loaded foot lever is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through your bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.


Kuat NV 2.0 tilting rackKuat NV 2.0 folding rack

The foot lever lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. It leaves both hands free so that you can lower the rack in a controlled manner. When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage.


Optional Repair Stand

Kuat NV 2.0 Trail Doc

This rack gives you the option of adding the Trail Doc (TDKB - sold separately). It's a handy repair stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments, cleaning, and on-the-go repairs. It can be also be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV 2.0 anti-rattle device

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge inside the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. The locking hitch pin has an Allen tool on the end that further tightens the hand knob if you are still experiencing rattle after hand-tightening.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Kuat NV 2.0 locking cable

Each wheel tray has an integrated cable lock that lets you secure your bike to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from the end of the wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.

Kuat NV 2.0 locking hitch pin

A locking hitch pin is also included to secure the rack to your vehicle. It's keyed alike with the cable lock so you only need 1 key for the rack.

I've taken this rack all over New England on the front of my Dodge Ram 3500 pick up truck with a truck camper. I had no idea it was possible to love a bike rack so much. After one drive I didn't ever worry about it again. So nice that it locks up when I am camping or taking a quick stop for food on the road. So glad I bought it from etrailer. They totally help me pick the perfect rack for my challenging set up.

This rack has traveled from MD, through TX, NM, AZ, UT, CO and back and it has held up so well. We did a ton of research and could not be happier with this rack or this company!



by:

Still very new, but what an awesome bike rack! Assembly was a snap and the rack is rock-solid when you secure it to the hitch receiver. etrailer was amazing too - excellent communication, price and fast, free delivery. Overall I am extremely happy with the rack and service!

A year in and the rack continues to work great. Still rock solid while driving and has held up very well.

excellent product; typical Kuat quality. bikes are sturdily held in place while driving.
locks for hitch pin and built-in locks for hitch pin for bikes well done.
I want to compliment the advice I received from etrailer representative Jon Griggs who provided great feedback every step of the way which was key in purchasing my hitch and bike rack.

Great! We bought this heavy duty rack in expectation that we were getting two e-bikes. We are still waiting on that. One thing to remember is the rack is heavy: over 50 lbs if I remember it correctly. It can take 2 min and a boy to install and remove, but darn sturdy. :-



by:

This bike rack has performed great. We are hauling 2 heavy fat tire e-bikes. Loading and unloading is a snap. I had to purchase a 2” drop extender to be able to lower my tailgate. Tilting the bike rack allows for easy access to my truck bed. Great product!

Renee

This bike rack is still performing great. I had to add some magnetic taillights because my bike tires covered my rear tires. Possible accessory upgrade. Thinking of adding the ramp to be able to load the bikes myself. My husband is able to but I can not. Great, great purchase!

I absolutely love the bike rack! It stays rock solid stable when secured to the rack and does not move. Kuat could not have built a much better bike rack! Securing the bike is SUPER easy. I am so glad that we purchased two of them.



by:

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

Please keep in mind that hauling bikes on the front of your truck can reduce driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and block your front lights, so you will want to use caution.



by:

I picked this bike rack specifically for use on my front mounted 2" receiver hitch (Which I acquired from e-trailer). I use it on the rear receiver if I just want to take the bikes out, and on the front hitch if I'm hauling my travel trailer. If you are going to use it in front, make sure the bicycle handlebars fold or can be easily removed for good visibility. The rack has all the positives; it is sturdily built, tips up 90 degrees when not in use, and tips away from the truck to allow access to the the bed or engine compartment without removing the bikes. It can be tightened in the receiver to provide a wiggle-proof connection to the vehicle. The moving parts all operate smoothly with no play. The only caution I would give is that it is heavy. All that sturdiness comes at a cost. I'm 79 and in reasonable condition. I can barely manage to hook it to the truck by myself. Having said that, I would still choose this bike rack. I love its smooth strength and solidity.



by:

I've had it for a year and I'm VERY happy with my bike rack. Love the built-in locks for deterrence and piece of mind. STRONGLY recommend getting an installer who knows what they're doing. I took it to my dealership and they were going to cut into metal... took it to an authorized installer and they had it securely bolted in in half an hour. I've already demonstrated it to two people out and about who wanted advice on hitch racks. It's a good, solid, easy to use rack! Zero regrets.

I recently bought the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2 Bike Platform Rack from ETrailer.
It is a well-made and well designed platform bike rack. It was easy to assemble. Although the instruction manual needs a little bit of tweaking to
make clear where the other nut is. It took a while to find it and I ended up buying a similar nut at a hardware store. Other than that this is a great bike
rack. Easy to assemble and install. I like the built-in security chain lock too. It
is actually long enough to secure the two bikes together. The platform has a grooved area for the bike’s front tire for added stability. It also lighter than the Thule bike rack I was initially considering. We traveled from the Bay Area in California to South Lake Tahoe for the Americas Most Beatiful Bike Ride, the bike was very stable. My wife loves the looks and the ease of tilting the bike rack to open the tailgate area.
The etrailer customer service person, Stacey A, was awesome. The shipping notification and tracking was great too.
I have no qualms recommending this bike rack to my family and friends.
Thanks for all your help, Stacey A.

Buy with confidence if you are here shopping for new bike racks you can already appreciate the vast amount of information provide to consumers to make an informed decision speak for an end user I love the Kuat NV 2.0 rack it assembled very easily 5 bolts to install and hex key is provided no additional tools are need the rack is very solid and sturdy the tilt feature is very smooth and works effortlessly as demonstrated on the websites video and as you can see for yourselves they are priced competitively what else can I say that etrailer hasn’t already covered other than the all black mat colored model finish on the rack isn’t the same as the grey and black with the orange rails it’s more rough texture finish not smoooth automotive like finish on the other two models don’t get me wrong this isn’t a con by any means this is exactly what I was looking for but I do have to say the smooth high quality finish of the other two models is very easy to clean just use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe down dust.

I have used this new bike rack twice (120 miles each trip) and could not be happier. This rack is extremely solid and so easy to use that I can have the rack installed and bikes both mounted in under 10 minutes.

When I was looking at racks, I had two questions about this rack that were hard to find answers to. I'm going to answer those questions to hopefully help others that are looking:

1. Does this rack work with bikes that have fenders? - I have two Velotric Discovery 1 e-bikes which have front fenders that stick out from the fork about 6-7". I put the arm just in front of the tires so that it is 6-7" in front of the fork. The rack is still extremely solid and the bikes don't move at all, even with the support arm further forward on the tire. Other people have put the support bar over their fender. I can't do that as it would break the fender just based on my bike's design. Couldn't be happier!

2. Can you open the tailgate of a Ford F150 when you tilt it down? - First of all, I did NOT buy the "extender" that would push the rack out further. If I did, I think I could open my tailgate up completely. Without the extension, I can open up my truck's tailgate about 2/3 of the way with the rack tilted. That is actually fine for me, because it allows me to unlock my truck bed Hard top cover so that I can access the bed. If you have a fullsize pickup, and want to open up your tailgate fully, you will most likely need to buy the extension.

Beyond those two questions, what I like most about this rack is that there is no center support bar that you have to work around. I can pick up the first bike and lift it right onto the rack with nothing impeding me. I secure it with the rear strap and front bar and it is good to go. I then put the 2nd bike on again with no impediments.

The unit tightens into the hitch sleeve and is rock solid. Super easy to install and tighten... taking me only a couple minutes.

Couldn't be happier with this purchase!!!!

I purchased this rack to carry two e-bikes, which the ads say it would be sufficient for two 60 lb bikes. I always removed the bike batteries to lesson the weight and keep them below 50 lbs. After about a month of travel the bike rack began to fall apart. The bolts holding it together bent and broke and fortunately I was close to home when it happened. I beefed the entire rack up with heavier bolts and also bolted some aluminum square tubing across the middle section and to the cross sections so that it would stand up to the weight of the ebikes. I am now on an extended trip to AZ and NM and so far so good. Also, one of the tire hold down thingys has loosened up due to the weight of an ebike. I would NOT recommend this rack for ebikes, Kuat makes some that are solid across the middle section that would work much better. Personally, I would never buy another Kuat due to the many problems we have had with it.

I am sorry to hear that your bike rack has started to fall apart. I was wondering if you are using this rack on the back of a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel? The Kuat NV is not designed to be used on a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel because of the excessive movement while going down the road. Travel trailers also have a tendency to sway on the highway which can be rough on certain bike racks that are not tested for use on the back of a trailer. I was also curious which e-bikes you are carrying on the rack?

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.

3/9/2022

Hello Heather, thank you for your response. I have been using the rack on the back of my pick up truck with an overhead camper. I don’t recall reading anywhere not to use it on an RV. Anyway we have a Himiway bike as well as a mini fold up rad. We remove the batteries when we carry them in order to reduce the weight. I also bought straps that attached to the back of the camper to help support the rack and minimize the movement. I think the problem with this particular rack is the fact that it is bolted together on the crossmembers rather than being a solid bar across which I have seen on other racks. I spent several hours making some adjustments to it and I think it’s OK now however I think it would be important not to advertise that rack as sufficient for 60 pound bikes. It definitely is not that. Once again thank you for your response.

Etrailer Expert

Heather A.

3/9/2022

We have not had any complaints about the durability of the construction of the Kuat NV so I am surprised to hear that you needed to brace the rack. It sounds like you are using your Kuat NV in the hitch of your truck. Are you using a hitch extender so the bike rack will clear the back of the overhead camper? Most extensions cut the tongue weight of the hitch in half so the e-bikes may be overloading your setup at that point. It sounds like your e-bikes may be around 70 lbs. The bike rack capacity is 60 lbs per bike so you may want to keep that in mind. You also want to keep in mind that using an extender creates more leverage on the setup and leads to more bouncing of the bike rack especially on the highway.

Dale

2/20/2023

I havent used it for a year now, but after making my improvements I feel confident that it will hold up just fine.

Dale

2/20/2023

I would like to ad that I did have an extension on the receiver to clear the back of the camper, however with the support straps attached to the upper part of the camper it should not have affected it. Heather wrote that I must have had 70 lbs per bike. NOt true. We always removed the batteries and the bikes are in the 50 lb range without them. having two little 516? bolts holding the wheel support to the center of the rack seems under strengthened IMO. I ended up putting aluminum tubes underneath the wheel supports and bolting it all together with heavier SS bolts. I will admit, however, that we do not just stay on paved roads and do sometimes wander onto back roads that are not always the smoothest, however with a big camper on top, we go slow and carefully on those roads.

I love the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack I purchased a year ago! It is easy to use and extremely sturdy - the 2 bikes remain secure and movement free! The tipping feature is great when I need to get into the back of my SUV while my bikes are loaded. I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 to everyone looking for a new or replacement rack!

Dianne

Awesome, I love it and have recommended it to many people! It is easy to use and I feel confident that my bikes are secure and well protected.



by:

High quality materials. Simple enough to assemble. All the tools you needs are included in the kit, and they are actually properly sized for the job at hand. Instructions are maybe an 8 out 7 - better than most but could do with a little more illustrations. Three suggestions, if I may. 1) When the early step says to turn the unit upside down, the front tire cradle keeps it from laying flat on the ground. This makes it difficult to install the long connecting bolts. You should suggest that the assembly be put up on blocks or to hang the cradle off the end of something (see my picture with the end hanging off of a deck walkway). This makes the whole thing lay flat to ease alignment if the connecting bolts. 2) For that same step, a trimetric view would me more helpful than the plan view. 3) when tightening the long bolts, care must be taken so that the Allen wrench doesn’t chip up the rack paint. I fixed this by wrapping the wrench with some painters tape (see pic). You might want to add this tip as it was obvious to me that Kuat tries to make a great set of instructions.

The rack itself operates beautifully. I expect years of solid service from this unit. Ps. The ramp accessory works great too.



by:

Easy to build, very sturdy! I haven't used it much yet, but so far so good! I had a Thule single bike rack before and I like this much better, even for just one bike.



by:

Great so far. It's a little heavy, but understand it's necessary to carry heavy bikes. I like the design for stowing the cables for the locking mechanism. The anti-rattle device is much appreciated.



by:

Wow , what a great bike carrier, Solid as a rock



by:

This rack did exactly what I needed it to do. I upgraded from a Yakima folding rack in order to hold new e-bikes. I also needed something that could be installed and removed easily.

Pros:
"Relatively" light weight - goes on and off easily
Holds the weight of e-bikes
The bikes feel save and secure once latched in and locked with the cable

Cons:
After a while the cable wouldn't stay seated when not in use. Often if I had the rack on without the bikes, one of the cables would be loose and hanging from the unit. Since I didn't do that often, I didn't take away a star

The only reason I don't use this rack anymore, is because I needed one that hold 3 bikes!

Highly recommend.



by:

Great product quality and design. Both etrailer and Kuat have great customer support.



by:

Love it. Replaced an older Yakima rack that was fine but didn't work with the frame od my new bike. This is a 50+ lb rack but because of the way its designed its fairly easy to get it into the hitch receiver. Once in, it locks in ver solidly by twisting a know that sort of jams a good sized steel ball up against the inside of the hitch receiver. There's no wobble even if I stand on the rack. Bike is pretty easy to put up on the rack. Arm clamps down on bike's front tire. I wish it used something better than the plastic ratchet trap to secure the rear wheel....that's the one part of the rack that doesn't have the same user friendliness as the rest of the rack. Is recommend this rack. And it arrived right away from etrailer. Good communication and no drama

I purchased the Kuat to replace a very similar Thule rack.(shown in photo).
I was pairing it with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk on the front of our trailer.
The Kuat was 7" closer to the trailer giving me the clearance I needed for the truck and the Kayaks on the truck rack. We traveled 6500 miles for 9 weeks and everything worked great. The Kuat works great on the back of our Jeep Rubicon as well.

I've used a lot of different bike racks over the years, but this is by far the best. It is very solidly built, holds bikes of all sizes securely, and looks good too.

Ken

After a year, Im still very happy with this Kuat rack. It is well built and solid and holds our bikes securely. The integrated locks are really handy too. I only wish now that I had gone for the model with the attached bike stand. They would be handy.



by:

Very well built and very easy to use bike rack. I used mine quite a bit within the last year and everything works just as well as the first day. I will say however this bike rack is on the heavy side. I exercise and work out regularly and this thing can be quite heavy for some people. It has to be close to 100 lb. I take mine off when I am not using it however some people may wish to leave it on just because of the weight. Very nice features would definitely recommend and it comes with adapters for different size wheels.

Durc

4/12/2023

Still looks and works brand new. Again I take mine off after every ride and hang it on the wall. Definitely recommend.

  • Can Kuat NV Bike Rack Be Used in Front Hitch of Motorhome
    A Kuat NV 2.0 like the part # BA22B can be used in the front hitch of an RV so it will work for you. At the rear of an RV there's a long distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the rear of it where the hitch is. This causes the ride quality to be much rougher due to the exaggerated movement of bumps. At the front of a motorhome is no different than a regular vehicle so any bike rack can be used there.

  • Do Kuat NV and NV Base Bike Racks Have Same Distance from Hitch Pin Hole to Bike Tray
    I am not sure why that info would be out there but there is no difference between the Kuat NV Base part # BA22B and the NV2 part # NV22G as far as distance from hitch pin to bike rack is concerned. These two racks have the same shanks so one would not stick out further than the other.

    Usually when vehicles have rear sensors there is a way to disable them in the settings of your vehicle - you shouldn't need to take your 2015 BMW X5 to have something done to the computer to accomplish this. You'll want to check in your owner's manual for any specific instructions on how to to this. If you don't already have a hitch I recommend checking out the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH56VR because it's hidden behind the bumper until you connect the receiver, and then the...

  • 2022 Nissan Rogue Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations
    The Class III hitches we have for your 2022 Nissan Rogue include the Draw-Tite # DT85MR and the Curt # C24HR. I recommend going with the Draw-Tite over the Curt because it sits about 1/2" higher off the ground and the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the bumper on your Rogue will be about 4-1/2" as opposed to 6-1/2" like we see from the Curt. This means you'll have better clearance when it comes to your bike rack. If you don't already have a bike rack I highly recommend the...

  • How to Have the Keys Match on a Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack After Swapping Out the Hitch Pin
    The Kuat NV 2.0 Base Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # BA22B comes with the cable locks and hitch pin lock keyed alike so you would only need 1 key for your lock. It sounds like you swapped out the hitch pin, this would cause the cable locks to no longer be keyed the same as the hitch pin. So, you would need 2 different keys. 1 for the hitch pin and 1 for the cable locks. If you wanted to have all of the locks matching again, you could use the Replacement Lock Cores for Kuat Cargo Carriers and Bike...

  • Can Tailgate of 2016 Chevy Colorado Open When Using Kuat NV Bike Rack?
    The answer is going to depend on how much room you have between the top of your 2015-2017 Chevy Colorado's trailer hitch and its tailgate. The Kuat NV # BA22B will be roughly 8 inches above the hitch receiver opening when the arms are folded down, so you would need to have more than that amount of space between the top of your hitch and when the tailgate is folded down. I've added links to video reviews of this bike rack for you to take a look at.

  • Which Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Is Needed For 2020 Jeep Cherokee To Carry Hitch Mounted Bike Rack?
    You will need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13395 for your 2020 Jeep Cherokee Limited. The Receiver # C13171 is only for 2014-2019 model years. Currently we have only been able to install this on trims with the dual exhaust, but we have several reviews mentioning how easy the installation was with only having a single side exhaust. The reviews estimated the install only took 35-45 minutes with having a single side exhaust so it likely does not have to be removed. I do recommend also...

  • Where To Get Trailer Hitch Installed On a 2018 Audi Q5
    The best place to get a trailer hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13331 which is what I recommend installed on a 2018 Audi Q5 is a local RV dealer with a service center as they will be the most experienced with this type of process. If you don't already have a bike rack, the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B is a great option with a really nice finish.

  • Will Kuat NV Base Fit in EcoHitch for 2019 Subaru Outback
    Yes, the Kuat NV Base bike rack # BA22B that you referenced will fit and work great in the EcoHitch part # 306-X7601 that is confirmed to fit your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon. You'd have plenty of clearance for the rack to install as well as fold up.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack on a 2019 Tesla Model 3
    The best trailer hitch for a 2019 Tesla Model 3 is the EcoHitch Stealth Trailer Hitch Receiver part # EH84GR. The EcoHitch installs completely behind the rear bumper so you will not even be able to tell a trailer hitch is even installed while the receiver tube is removed. This actually brings me to the removable receiver tube which is a feature specific to the EcoHitch and allows for a 100% factory like appearance. Please note, you will need to remove the rear bumper for installation but...

  • Correct Trailer Hitch Fit for 2020 Subaru Legacy (Base, Premium, Sport, Limited,Touring, and XT)
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT73RR is a confirmed fit for a 2020 Subaru Legacy (All Models Including Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, Limited XT and Touring XT) and what I recommend since it offers the easiest bolt-on installation. It would then work perfectly with a bike rack such as the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack part # BA22B.

  • Does Kuat NV Base and NV 2.0 Bike Rack have Same Frame Cradles
    Yes the Kuat NV Base part # BA22B has the exact same cradles and adjustability as the NV2.0 part # NV22G. The big difference between the two is the repair stand that the # NV22G has.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver and Vehicle Wiring Harness For 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Bike Rack
    The Curt Wiring Harness # C56434 is confirmed to fit all models of the 2021 Toyota RAV4. Your RAV4 Prime does fall into that fit. This will give you a 4-way flat connector for towing small trailers or using Auxiliary Lights # C53201 with your hitch mounted accessory. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13416 as the best receiver for your RAV4. It has a 2" receiver that will allow for you to use a wider range of bike racks and other hitch mounted accessories. It will support...

  • What is Difference Between Kuat NV 2.0 and NV 2.0 Base
    The Kuat NV 2.0 2 Bike Platform Rack, # NV22G, and the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform rack, # BA22B. are both very similar bike racks. Both racks can be expanded to a 4-bike rack, # NA22G add-on for the NV 2.0 and # BA02B for the NV 2.0 Base, and both racks have very similar specs. The NV 2.0 # NV22G does include one major feature over the base, the bike repair stand. If you've ever been out at the track/trail and wished you had a bike stand to make working on the bike easier this would...

  • Bike Racks with Loading Ramp Options for Easier Loading
    We have bike racks that have loading ramp options but the Swagman E-Spec part # S94FR does not have a loading ramp option and none of the ramps we offer would work with it. We have the Yakima OnRamp Bike Platform Rack # Y36FR or we have the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 which comes with ramps and a way to store them on the rack (other options don't have storage option). Or we have the Kuat ramp option # ANVBRB for the NV style bike racks like # BA22B. None of these options are exactly inexpensive...

  • Can Kuat NV Bike Rack Install on 2020 Mercedes Benz GLC with Curt Hitch
    The Kuat NV part # NV22G would clear your bumper based on your dimension of 4.5 inches form pin hole out to furthest point out on bumper as this has 10-1/2 inches from pin hole to nearest point of bike rack when folded down and 7 inches when folded up. This would also work with a Curt hitch # C13290 tube that has 1.5 inches from the pin hole to the end of the hitch opening as well. For a similar bike rack that is less expensive we have the stripped down version of this rack with the NV2.0...

  • Best 2 Bike Rack for Lectric Step Through Electric Bike With Fat Tires
    My best recommendation for you is the Kuat NV 2.0 # NV22G. Since your Lectric bike has the rear rack over the rear tire. you will like the front-tire only wheel clamp this bike rack has. Also, the cradles can accommodate tire widths of up to 4.8" so the 4" tires of your fat bike should be fine. I attached my personal review video of this bike rack below if you want to see it in action. It also comes in different colors like metallic black # NV22B or matte black (without the repair stand)...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For A Gazelle Ebike
    Hi Janice, With Gazelle ebikes having both front and rear fenders you'll have to go with a frame mount to avoid damaging the fender or rear basket. Since there currently isn't a frame mounted Kuat rack with a high enough capacity you'll need to go with Thule's Epos Bike Rack # TH99XE. This rack has wheel straps to secure the wheels at the base of the rack and rotating masts to grip the frame or rear wheel to completely secure the bikes. It doesn't come with a ramp but one can be ordered...

  • Where Does Access Ramp For Kuat NV Store
    There isn't a storage area on the actual bike rack itself for the Access Ramp for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # ANVBRB. When you use the ramp and remove it, you'll want to store it in your vehicle when you are out on the trails or in your garage or wherever is easiest for you when you aren't transporting your bikes. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Access Ramp for Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # ANVBRB.
