Kuat NV22G loaded on vehicle

The Kuat NV platform-style rack lets you transport 2 bikes of almost any size, shape, or frame style. Ratcheting wheel hooks and sliding wheel trays hold your bikes with no frame contact. The rack tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access and it folds up for storage. The aluminum rack has an integrated work stand for on-the-go repairs, it installs without tools, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Adjustable Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV22G ratcheeting wheel hooks

The NV has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheels - not the frames. These hooks allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff your bike paint. Each hook adjusts in 2-mm increments to ensure a snug fit over your wheel, and it releases with the push of a button.


The wheel hooks are mounted on arms that pivot nearly 180 degrees from left to right. This makes it easier to load when compared with a rack that has the hooks mounted on a central post. To load simply set your bike in the wheel cradles, rotate the arms up over the wheels, and press the hooks down over the wheels until snug.


Extra-Wide Front Wheel Cradles

Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting strapsKuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

The front wheel cradles are extra-wide to accommodate fat bike wheels. They can be also adjusted to 3 positions to fit your bike's wheelbase. Use the included Allen key stored in the compartment at the back of the rack to adjust.


Sliding, Ratcheting Rear-Wheel Straps

Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

The NV 2.0 has ratcheting rear-wheel straps that slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes of different lengths. A quick-release button on each strap buckle makes it easy to free the rear wheel to remove your bikes. An extender strap is included for use with 1 fat bike. Additional extender straps (APBK - sold separately) are available if you have more than 1 fat bike.


Folding and Tilting Design

Kuat NV22G hitch tightening adjustment knob

The NV has a lever on the base that is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.


Kuat NV22G tilting and folding design

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Kuat NV22G tilting and folding design

When the rack is unloaded you can pull the top of the lever with your hand to fold it up for storage. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.


Built-In Repair Stand

Kuat NV22G built-in repair stand

The Trail Doc is a handy, built-in bike repair and maintenance stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It grabs your bike by the seat post or top tube and lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments and on-the-go repairs. It attaches to the rack with 4 hex-head bolts. It can be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.


Kuat NV22G adjustable built-in stand

You can reposition your bike on the Trail Doc. Easy-to-use pressure clamps let you raise or lower the stand, rotate it on its base, and rotate the clamp arm. And the TPE padding on the clamp protects your bike's frame and finish.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV22G 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 NV22G integrated cable lock

The NV 2.0 includes integrated cable locks that lets you secure your bikes to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from each wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.


Kuat NV22G integrated cable lock

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 have a great rack! (actually my wife does) I have 5 or 6 friends that use this rack and grew weary of throwing my bike on top of the Outback. Additionally my wife has become interested in venturing off on her own and cannot put a bike on top her outback. etrailer shipped promptly, and the product arrived in good shape, note: there were a few spots where the parts had jostled around in the box slightly and you could see some marring of the surface. This polished right out with a microfiber towel and mothers. There are a few minor nicks (I mean really minor) on the rack;but, they were there before being put in the factory packaging. Not enough to whine about just know the finish is great just not perfect. Speaking of the finish the color matches my Outback perfectly, it actually looks like an OEM Subaru thing. Fit is good using the Hidden/Drawtite hitch clearing the hatch while tilted back easily even with 800mm bars. The locking Hitch pin that comes with the rack is 1/2" diameter instead of the normal 5/8", fortunately the hitch mentioned above has a smaller 1/2" about 12mm aft of the 5/8" hole. The hole in the rack is 5/8" but do to the snugging system on the Küat the mismatch I'd of no consequence. Assembly is easy and someone with good mechanical aptitude should be able to do it in less than 10, an extra set of hands would be nice but aren't required. I built mine on an elevated bench and it was quick and super easy, admittedly I used power tools because I have them. I'm looking forward to the convenience of a tray. 440137

Have used it on a 2015 Audi Q5 with an aftermarket Curt 2" hitch. LOVE it! We were looking for the longest tongue that we could find so that when stored upright, it wouldn't hit the bumper. With the advice of the etrailer phone rep...we got 4 place model which is what we ended up with..(we got the add-on) Avid mountain bikers that love this setup. The model is very solid with 4 bikes! Also like how you can adjust the front wheel cradle so that the bars won't rub on other bars/seats. Heavy when you lower the rack "loaded" to open hatchback, but that's what you'll deal with when going with a setup that doesn't touch the frame which is what we want and need. Much nicer than the Thule/Yakima options that other friends have. A lot better looking too!! It does slightly block the tail lights so added some reflectors for those "distracted drivers" ;-) Highly recommend and feel price is worth it. 515474

Rack arrived today. I will not lie, it is heavy and therefore cumbersome to assemble. Despite that, I was able to assemble and install it in just under one hour. I did this on my own, another person would have cut this time in half. The rack checks all the boxes of wants and needs. That same weight noted before makes it rock solid. The anti-rattle feature to tighten the hitch is wonderful. Handle/pedal to change from upright position to bike holding rack to tilt away from my Subaru 2010 Forester was incredibly simple and smooth. I was all set to buy the Thule T2 Pro XT 2 and a friend told me about this Kuat NV 2.0. I am so happy. I knew it was more expensive, but free shipping and price was discounted at checkout when I purchased it from etrailer.com. Great surprise. This rack is well thought out, has superb quality features, and I am convinced that I made the best choice. All things aside, it also really looks nice. 498287

Assembly was not as difficult as I expected. After watching some videos, the instructions do make sense. I also used the box with some of the foam packing to support the frame because, as suggested, it easier to put together"upside down". Once it's together it seems very solid and well made. Installing on my 2017 Hyundai Tucson Eco was simple and easy to do. Putting the bike on the rack was even easier and will make impromptu bike rides no problem when I'm by myself. In the pictures the bike was on the outside rack because I was demonstrating it to my friend who thankfully assisted me with the hitch installation. 386032

eTrailer had a misunderstanding of their inventory and I needed this for a biking trip on Memorial Day. They made it right by paying for expedited shipping and received a hitch and this bike rack on Friday in time for the weekend. Installation was easy, just make sure (for this hitch and setup) that you have a 17/32" drill bit. We didn't have one so I picked up a 9/16" (18/32") and that did the job. The video that shows fishing the fish through the holes in the chassis and pulling the bolts and plates through really works as advertised, I was impressed. Mind you, this was all for the 2" hitch, but The bike rack itself is easy put bikes on and off, and comes with a locking mechanism which is handy. If I were going to be parked somewhere I doubted the security for more than just an hour or so, I might consider one more bike lock strung around the bike(s) just for ease of mine. The locking hitch pin is a nice piece of mind too. The ability for this rack to tilt both vertically to reduce your vehicle's profile as well as backwards even with the bike on (for easy access to the hatch), is extremely handy. Cannot recommend this enough! 257731

Wow!!! What an upgrade from my Thule 4 bike hanging carrier! The Thule was fine for hauling the family's bikes around town but I needed a platform to safely transport my Tri bike to events. I couldn't be happier with Kuat and this NV 2.0 carrier. Amazing etrailer customer service with Cathy T and absolutely the best price! Super fast free shipping too. I ordered Wednesday afternoon and she arrived ahead of schedule on Saturday. (That's right, this rack is so sweet I gendered it.) Easy to follow instructions, sweet looks and a secure platform leaves me with absolutely ZERO buyers remorse. I began my search for a platform carrier at the cheap end of the scale. After a quick study I became convinced that Kuat was my best option. And etrailer made it possible for me to stretch my budget into a FIVE STAR Kuat rack! Special Thanks to Cathy T for helping with a billing issue that required a few calls! 377838

The process has been very easy. From order to on time delivery to assembly. This rack arrived today, I set a half hour aside for assembly. You will need nothing for this easy job. The Allen wrench is included with the rack. Follow the directions and you'll be very happy. As you can see in the two photos, the bikes are on the rack with ease. I have not driven yet, but shook the bikes by hand and rocked them around pretty good. Very little movement, very solid. The rack is a bit more expensive than others, but with its good looks, the ease of operation, and solid construction, I couldn't be happier. Linc 378847

Product was out of stock. We got a call from etrailer to let us know how long it would be out of stock and if we wanted to wait or do something else. We decided to wait and glad we did. Product came in earlier than expected. Happy with the bike rack exactly as described. 201090

Excellent bike rack. Good purchase. Everybody makes positive comments about it especially when they see how easy it is to load and unload our bikes.

We've had every imaginable kind of bike rack for our family over the years. Roof mounted, hitch mounted, hatch mounted, spare tire mounted, etc. This is one of the best designed and executed rear receiver mount racks. It fits on our pick up truck and has a knob that lets you take up the clearance in the receiver so the rack doesn't rock as the truck bounces. This reduces the swaying that can be imparted to the rear of the vehicle and eliminates the noise caused by any tolerance in the fit. The locks for each bike are too short to grab the front wheel, but let you get the bike frame and the rear wheel. the hitch includes a locking hitch pin for the receiver. Very nicely made. The "pivot" is great and better made than any of our previous pivoting bike racks. Nicely over-engineered. 529240

Not to big of a deal to put together. It is solid and secure and the best bike rack money can buy. I was a little concerned about the 1/2” diameter pin it came with , as I have a 5/8” hole in my receiver hitch. But , as the directions say, just pull the rack back until that little bit of slack is taken out and then tighten the slack adjuster / anti-rattle device the carrier comes with. Everything tightens up and there is no issues. It would be a different story if you were trying to pull a trailer with a 1/2” pin in a 5/8” hole , but this is just so your bike rack won’t slide out of the hitch. No worries. I am super stoked . I carry 2 downhill mtn. Bikes with 2.5 wide tires - no issues . It’s worth the money . 449059

Best Bike Rack. I am very glad that I got to find what I needed; thanks to the product reviews on YouTube. It is not only strong, it also looks very nice. The bike is well secure and very easy to mount and dismount. To assemble the rack, just follow the instructions shown on youTube. It is that easy. etrailer.com was my best choice to buy. The service is outstanding. I highly recommend this product. Not only looks great, it also looks nice on any SUV. 416914

I received the rack very quickly from eTrailer.com, faster than expected, which is always nice. Of course UPS beat the tar out of the box, but the rack was packed well and survived the abuse without a scratch. Assembly was quick and easy, 4 main bolts and 1 for the tilt release lever, that was it. This rack is built like a tank, I'm impressed with the construction and finish. Test fit my road bike (Cannondale Synapse Carbon) and wife's MTB (Cannondale Foray) in just a few minutes. Bikes fit well and felt very solid. Overall I'm a very happy camper and would highly recommend the rack and eTrailer.com. 270088

I tried to pick the best bike hitch rack on the market and I think I succeeded with the Kuat NV 2.0. Took about 20 minutes to unbox and assemble, quite simple and included all the tools necessary. Rack is VERY stout but along with the stiffness goes a significant amount of weight. The most pleasant surprise was the significant savings that showed up in my cart when I went to purchase, did not show on the discounted price on the main product page. Bought my trailer hitch from them too because they had the lowest delivered price. etrailer will be my 1st "go-to" from now on, customer for life! 479474

I was a little hesitant about spending this much money on a bike rack, but it was definitely worth it. I had an aftermarket 2" Class III hitch installed on my 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, and I wanted a bike rack that could safely secure and transport my road and mountain bike. The rack secures in the receiver with ease and has an adjustable knob to remove any sway that may occur while driving. Assembly was simple and loading and unloading bikes could not be easier. I highly recommend the NV 2 to anyone looking for a high quality platform rack. 145720

The directions were fantastic and easy to follow. I put this together without help but a second pair of hands would have been nice. This mount seems to be very well made and is much heavier than I had thought. I just received it so I can not speak about its functionality as of now. It is build very, very well. Also, Etrailer delivered this mount in 3 days from the time I placed my order. I was also able to get them on the phone quickly when I had a question. Im a happy customer. 441875

I just installed the N105. It was easy to put together. It would be nice if it was 10 pounds lighter, but plan on leaving it on the car, that's a minor point. 30 mile shakedown cruise up to 60 MPH showed it to hold the bike rock steady. Happy, happy. 278140

Well, well, made! It is heavy and I'd certainly like to see it become lighter. Rear wheel tie down strap could use a slot on the back to slip the strap into while loading/unloading to keep it out of the way. Some other racks have this. I'd like to see the add-on bike clamp have a securing key to keep from having it stolen or having to remove to keep safe and be longer if possible. I truly think it is great though. 511064

The rack is one of if not the best bike racks on the market. The rack is simple to set up. When in use the rack functions extremely well and bikes secured to the rack when mobile even in rough terrain. I am extremely happy with this product and would recommend to anyone interested in a hitch mounted bike rack. Thank you etrailer.com for the excellent service all the way through the entire purchase process. 521312

Just received the NV22G and assembled it. Quite sturdy and very well built! Went together without a hitch (no pun intended). One thing to note is that assembly would be much easier with another set of hands so keep that in mind. The unit assembled quickly and I had it attached to the truck, adjusted, and bike loaded within an hour. Quite impressed with it after the first test drive with bike loaded! 384297

Great product. Easy Installation on my Kia Niro. My only complaint is that it’s a little too heavy for this 70 year old. I’ll have to do a little more weight lifting. Here it is on my Kia Niro. 436322

Love this bike rack. We have 2 low-entry or step-through bikes. This rack works great. Solid. Smooth. Not hard to put together if you have another person to help you for about 10 minutes. I would note that this rack didn't work well with a front fender on our bikes. I took the front fenders off and had no problem. I ordered from etrailer. Good price. Fast delivery. 460977

We bought this rack for our electric bikes after seeing the bike dealer using-but he also used the additional 2-bike add-on. This product is well built and incorporates a mobile repair stand, foot release and cable locks as highly functional adds. Very happy with this product and the purchase/delivery process through etrailer (as usual!). 516858

Are you kidding me? After owning a few different racks, I can fully back the Kuat NV 2.0. What a great rack. It's sturdy. It has the built in trail-doc for roadside bike adjustments. It has a built in lock. It's attractive. All positive things to say. I could not be more impressed with the build quality and ownership. 457913

I had excellent service with purchasing my new bike rack! I returned one that I had ordered with the help of Natalie and everything went smoothly. I love my new rack. It is very sturdy, it's very heavy for me to put on myself but a very nice bike rack. 428634

This bike rack is big and black and looks totally awesome on the back of my GMC Yukon. It is solidly built and works great. Thanks to the tilt function, I can get in and out of the back of my SUV even with bikes in the rack. Worth the price! 141548

This is a perfect bike rack! Traveled to Myrtle Beach SC, Skytop PA and around both areas. Very solid rack - love the tilt down feature that lets me get into the back of my truck without removing the bikes. You get what you pay for. 448908

Love, love, love this bike rack. Functional, easy to use, secures bikes well for the ride and from theft, tilts out so I can still access the back of my vehicle, folds up when not in use and looks great on top of it all. 269766


Comments

Still my favorite rack ever...and I have owned quite a few. Holding up well, quick and easy to use, looks nice and is nice and tight in the receiver. Love it.

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Fantastic bike rack!! After getting fed up with loading my bike up repeatedly in the back of my 2003 GMC Sierra pickup (with a hard top cover) I decided to purchase this kuat rack. I wish I would’ve sooner. Assembly was easy and straight forward however I would use a magnetic parts bowl if I had it to do over. Kuat doesn’t included any extra nuts so I had to contact them to get another after I dropped and lost one (they were very polite and shipped one right away.) As far as function goes this rack is really easy to use. Just slide it into the receiver and put the lock pin it. Just like in the video you then tighten the knob at the back to secure the hitch so there is no movement. Load your bikes up and secure them and you’re ready to go. I did utilize the retractable cable locks after my ride when stopping to eat and they are very easy to use. No worries at all about a stolen bike. And the tilting feature is great too. It does allows you to access your truck bed with the tailgate down just as in the video. As an added bonus this rack fits perfect in my standard size truck bed even with the hard top cover closed (my truck is too long to fit in the garage with the rack folded up installed in the hitch.) Michael H. was outstanding providing schematic drawings with the dimensions so I would know this before my purchase (they’re on the Q&A page.) The free shipping was very fast so that made the purchase even better. I will definitely be a repeat customer as eTrailer is the one of the best companies out there with great customer service and timely communication. Great job!! 486543

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I love my Küat. It is secure and so easy to mount bikes, my wife loves it too. The work stand is a nice bonus too. 97698


Comments

After a year I still love my Kuat. It has made a bunch of trips to Vermont from here in Connecticut without a problems or hiccups. I have had quite a few comments on it, folks thought it looked unique and very secure. I really appreciate the integrated locking cable, it gives me piece of mind that my bikes are safe. My only problem was with the locking pin for the work stand which broke shortly after I got it. The folks from Kuat quickly sent me a replacement though, the gentleman I talked to was very helpful. All in all, this rack is well worth the price in my opinion.

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Product is great but etrailer.com is terrible. I had previously purchased from etrailer.com and had good experiences. However, this time, my rack showed up chipped and missing parts. I called etrailer.com customer support and they said they couldn't do anything to help me and gave me Kuat's number. I called Kuat and they said the seller should have been able to handle this issue and they referred me to a local retailer that they said was more responsive and helpful than etrailer.com. I will buy a Kuat again but will never, ever buy from etrailer again and would NOT recommend them to anyone. See pics below of how rack showed up with chipped powder coating and parts missing so the 2 position extension could only be used for one bike. 399401

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Clear and simple assembly instructions. Packaged very well to protect all painted surfaces. It’s a very well built and sturdy rack. I really like that each front tire tray is adjustable up or down. Kuat pulled out all the stops on this rack, Excellently done! I also like the integrated bike locks and the anti-sway feature, very cool! I believe this rack will allow my son and I to travel further safely and explore more on our mountain bikes and bring us closer together. 542508

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Paired this rack with a Curt C11111 for my 2012 Infiniti M37 Sedan. Easy to assemble/install, custom fit and look. The rack makes it extremely easy to load either MTB or road bikes. My wife loves the fact she can load the bikes without my assistance! 171138

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I needed this rack in a hurry before my trip. I called Etrailer and they had it in stock and shipped it out that day. It got here two days later just in time for my trip. What amazing customer service these guys have. The rack itself is insanely nice. It's refreshing to see a company like Kuat build something they very clearly care about. I am about to put it through it's paces on a long trip, but so far, amazing product. I put it on my 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter. FWIW you can open both doors with the rack installed and no bike on the first slot in the rack. If you want to run 4 bikes and open the doors you will probably need a hitch extender. I guess 8". 274508

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I just received my Kuat NV22G-NA22G E-trailer was phenomenal, Fast delivered it in about three days . The bike rack is incredibly well built (Super Strong). it took a little bit of time to assemble but nothing complicated. This is ,in my opinion, a very expensive rack but it is probably hands-down the best hitch mount bike rack on the market. I will say that I have only assembled the initial two bike rack and have not yet attached the additional two bike rack to make it a four bike rack. But it will definitely be on the heavy side when the four bike unit is complete. However it is tremendously sturdy and well-built . 289449

  • 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,as you stated, the bike repair stand. The # NV22G, when installed in the hitch, will sit closer to your vehicle when folded down then the NV 2.0 Base bike rack.

First some similarities. All three racks are capable of folding up against the rear of the vehicle when the bikes are removed, and all three can tilt rearward with the bikes in place, allowing easier access to the rear trunk or liftgate of the vehicle.

  • Platform Bike Rack Options for a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • Since we have quite a variety of platform mount bike racks to choose from to use with your 2018 Honda CR-V I will give you a couple of recommendations. A good entry-level platform bike rack is the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311. This is a lightweight bike rack that can hold up to two 40 lb bikes by securing their wheels to the cradles. This means that it can accommodate a wide variety of bikes as long as they do not have a fender or basket. For access to your rear cargo area, the BikeWing...

  • What is the Difference Between the Kuat NV 2.0 and the Older Version of the Rack
  • There were quite a bit of updates for the new NV which Kuat spent three years working on. One of the biggest differences the new Kuat NV 2.0 part # NV22G has over the previous version is that the wheel cradles can now accommodate tires up to 4.8 inches in width. The hitch pin design allows you to install the rack without any tools instead of needing a wrench for the anti-rattle bolt. The foot release lever can now allow the rack to tilt down for more access to the rear cargo area....

  • Is Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9027 Recommended for Carrying Carbon Fiber Framed Bikes
  • When it comes to the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack, # TH9027, this is a great bike rack that is loaded with features and has the road-dampening technology (RDT) which definitely helps but at the end off the day I will still always recommend a platform style bike rack for the carbon fiber framed bikes. The best rack for the carbon fiber bikes is going to be a platform rack that secures the bikes by the wheel and not the frame. No contact with the frame = less chance of damage = happy rider. All...

  • Will Add-on for Kuat NV Fit the Kuat NV 2.0

Another model is the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B. It's very similar to the NV 2.0 except it extends slightly further from the vehicle when installed and does not include the bike repair stand. It also has an available add-on to 4 bikes using # BA02B or to purchase both together use # BA22B-BA02B.

  • Platform Bike Rack for a Front Mount Hitch on a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500
  • Any bike rack, but especially platform racks, will have movement. The movement you see in the video is exaggerated due to the placement of the cameras so it appears like it is moving a lot when really it isn't moving all that much. But with that said there are certainly racks that are more stable that others and there are additional measures you can take to further reduce movement. The Swagman XTC # S64670 uses a threaded bolt that pulls the bike rack shank tight to the side of the receiver...

  • The 2-Bike Add-on, part # NA22G, fits the current Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV22G, but unfortunately does not fit the original model. If you need to upgrade to a 4-bike rack you might take a look at the RockyMounts SplitRail, part # RKY1140-4. When using only 2 bikes it has the same 60 pound per bike weight capacity however, that does drop to 40 pounds when adding the 3rd and 4th bikes. Similarly to the NV, it does include locks for the rack and the bikes, and it also holds the bikes by...

  • Even with Wheel Adapter, # PN2024, the smallest bike that can be carried on the Kuat Sherpa, # SH22G or the Kuat NV, # NV22G, is a 20 inch bike so this rack would not work for the 16 inch kid's bike. Good news is I do have a solution. Take a look at the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2, # HR1000. You would just need to use the Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters, # HRSW-ADP-2, and you will be ready to go. Another option would be to go with a hanging rack like the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Rack, # TH9028XT...
