Maybe it move because of my short wheels base car, but I'm septical. For those not familiar with the original Sherpa lets cover the basic. Easy to use and very attractive. No evidence of weather damage 1 year later. 383451, I bought the kuat transfer 2 bike rack. All tools and hardware was in separate packing so you would know which bolds, nuts and screws (tools) needed to be used. The Thule and Yakima are rated well though weigh 50 pounds or more. Only drawback is that it is not lockable, but we rarely leave bikes on vehicle unattended. Con: The weight of this rack is ridiculous. We love the drop down lever which allows access to rear hatch. 452331, This site offered an almost unbelievable price with free shipping. 600019, Sturdy and secure rack for 3 bikes. I ordered it immediately! It works great and is so easy to use. 876388, Love this rack! We are always given these reviews way too early. Customer service is #1!!! Front wheel trays are a bit bulky. Can't find a better website with more objective information. Our neighbor recommended this item and we are very impressed with the quality of this product. Integral locks (extra) work fine. U-shape frame makes it convenient and ergonomic to load bikes. We loved it. Thank you so much. Ordering and paying were straightforward, and we received prompt order confirmation and then a shipping update (and free shipping was great). 520173, Love the bike rack. I have reviewed each of those items separately. The light weight was a key for me as I needed my wife to be able to install on the hitch. Really light. Enter the Sherpa and honestly I don't feel like I lost anything. It fits the 3" tires on my 6Fattie perfectly. * Assembly: Took me about 45 minutes to complete. Easy to load the bikes on and off. Price come out to be $50 less than advertised, because of the price pledge. 566629, Excellent rack, easy tilt away, compact enough not to obscure tail lights and very stable and secure. 643068, Very sturdy build. The rack is easy to load the bike (no center bars) and the tilt feature is easy to reach with your foot in order to open the car's lift gate. If you’re looking for a sturdy, well-constructed 3-bike Carrier that folds up for storage and down to access the tailgate, you won’t be disappointed with this product. Be aware it is of heavy-duty steel construction so it is plenty hefty to move around off the vehicle. 502189, This rack works awesome for 2 bikes! The quality is sturdy and excellent. Kuat Racks Sherpa 2.0-2 Bike Rack. The instructions were detailed and specific with pictures. The only word of caution is to READ the installation instructions BEFORE you open the box!! Lays flat with no bikes and hold bike steady with no movement. I drove from California to Maine last summer with 2 bikes on the back of a Chevy volt. It is on the heavy side which is good and bad. 189205, Service was excellent. I may have to rig something up to keep it a little tighter. I got the integrated lock system and it's very convenient. Plan to use this for a long time. It takes less than a minute to get it loaded into the hitch receiver. I emailed Kuat about it, and they sent me a new one at no charge. 831175, Assembly instructions were very easy to follow. 471391, Cost is high but you get what you pay for. This fits our Giant and Specialized bikes well, hopefully the upcoming Electra Loft 7d fits just as well (although that one has fenders, so I may need to remove the front finder). However, I did need to purchase a strap extension to make it over the fatbike tire. It folds up close to the rear of my Murano when not in use, and the foot release also lets the bike rack fold forward to open the hatchback door, even with the 2 bikes on! It is so simple, sit it in the tire slots lower the hook over the front tires. 686772, Love it! The rack move with bikes after couple of use. I would imagine that anything sticking out from the car profile should have some sort of a alarming signs. Happy trails, The easy on and off the vehicle is a great feature, and once it is on the car, the bikes go on effortlessly. Of note, it is somewhat heavy and like most racks, it's unusual size makes it difficult to store when not in use. The only negative that I haven't found a solution to yet is that the hitch pin is very skinny and I can't find a locking mechanism that will fit it. And a second pair of hands was helpful in keeping the frame in place while I installed the front wheel ratchet arm assembly onto its pivot mount. For the price, you cannot beat this rack! 417746, I put it together myself! I cannot overemphasize the thoughtful engineering and quality Kuat designed into this rack. It's REALLY nice that Kuat includes all the tools you need, including a 19mm wrench. I Have and continue to recommend this to others. It isn't made necessarily for fat tires or road bikes, but I have carried all three on this rack without any issues. The Transfer 2 is sturdy. No worries on hitting anything with the rack while backing up. I highly recommend this bicycle rack for 2 bikes. 579422, This is my 2nd purchase from etrailer.com! 391693, etrailer was prompt to answer my questions regarding whether this rack would work with my Chevy Volt. Have used it many times for my double bike rack, no problems. If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. (Up, middle, down) It has really came in handy transporting more than one bike now. 692498, Well made and easy to use. The first hitch mount, Thule, required additional strapping to hold the bike on the rack - which was a pain. It will take some effort to steal my Sherpa 2.0. Seems like it wouldn't be too difficult to make the right size cap. So easy to use. It’s been a year and working wonderfully! 910232, Well made! Thanks etrailer! 817989, Great rack for two (or one) bikes. We just returned from our second trip on the Virginia Creeper. The instructions are pictorial & not always real clear (think Ikea furniture), but the assembly is pretty logical and straightforward. Thank you for the follow up. I have been on very bumpy mountain roads and at highway speeds for long trips. Besides that great product and easy instal. But it looks like everything will be OK. As of now product 5 stars. It's possible, but much easier with two. Buy a Kuat! Two minor complaints, not worth taking off a star: Kuat offered to send a complete tray due to the lock problem. 792891, Very happy with the service from e-trailer! I'm very pleased with this product, and also pleased with the etrailer experience. Mounts easy. Nothing more to sa y. I like that you don't have to take the bikes off to get into the back of the vehicle. The action makes it very easy to access the back of the Honda CR-V. Love the fact that I am thinking about the bike ride and not worrying about how I am getting the bikes there. 620106, Great product, fast service, I will get a lot of use out of this bike rack for along time to come. They are only 26” in size, so that might be why. The burlap bag with the tools to put it together and to attach it to my hitch was a great feature. Bikes seem solid. We’ve taken many long road trips with it and there is no worry about the bikes. Went together easy. This hitch comes in 2 colors Black or Gray… I normally purchase black but for some reason I choose Gray this time and I’m super happy I choose Gray, it looks really great! I have not gone on any super long trips but I am sure it would work just fine. Instruction book was the best that I have seen in years. I also bought my hitch from them. Looking forward to using it! 578303, I have had this rack for a year and used it extensively. Highly recommend this rack for the price. This rack is still the easiest one to use I know of. Great delivery time. My only issues were 1- putting on the wheel well involves a bolt with an insert that says "up" on it with an arrow; the insert is supposed to fit into a slot on the wheel well, and will only do so if things are lined up correctly, so I had to figure out that the part on the wheel well that surrounds the actual metal rack ROTATES inside the part of the wheel well that actually holds the wheel. 571761, Super high quality. I'm a happy biker now! Liked it so much we purchased a second one for our 2014 Subaru Outback! All tools are included. The rack seems to be well made and the bolts all lined up and installed perfectly! 799501, Super easy to install and looks great! On our first trip out, my 12 year old son was able to quickly and easily remove his bike with no help. Assembly went pretty well, not super smooth or quick, but do theses kinds of things ever? If this information is not helpful please let me know and we can investigate further. But it is a two man job and a car lift would have made installation a lot easier. - Really easy to mount your bike on it. It was really easy to understand and use the 3- bike rack. This works perfect Highly recommend. This works perfectly, easy to put together got through it with only 1 beer :-) . Simplicity of instructions and construction. 671754, Honestly too early to review my Kuat Transfer (2 bike) but I really appreciate the ease of putting my bike in it and just go. It's easier to load the bike and easier on the bike. Much better directions than Thule. 920892, Awesome product. We love how quickly our bikes are on and off this light-weight rack! 488648, I can’t say enough about Etrailer and the people I worked with. 844978, Holds my 58cm road bike and my Large 29er mountain perfectly. We have used it regularly since June 2018 long trips 3-9 hours of driving and several local 30 min drives and never has shown signs of loosening up and bikes tumbling down the road. I caulked the end caps in place, and haven't seen any rust like some others have commented about. 820904, Just put it together and took two bikes to the shop. Whoever Kuat are, they've made a huge impression on me - the rack comes packaged like a Xmas present! 545398, We've had our Kuat bike rack over a year now and couldn't be more happy with this product. Two Trek Verve 3 bikes are now securely carried wherever we go. 526428, Stable. The price is very reasonable. The etrailer online video provides great assistance with assembly which took me a little over an hour. Time to go Bicycling.....Thank You George J., etrailer.com I've only had it on the road once, a test drive of about 30 miles carrying one road bike for most of it, and then adding my 29er mountain bike. I liked that the shipping didn't take only a few days It was easy to assemble with the instructions as well as YouTube videos online. I like how the carrier works, isolating the two bikes. Bike rides perfect on this rack, doesn't sway at all, stays put. Thanks. Light years better than my Thule T2 platform that rattled and swayed all over the place while driving. it works out great for my fat tire mountain bike. Always an excellent experience. I also like the large front well cups, which seem to be more secure than what is on the Sherpa. 591540, Great product - best bike carrier ever! Had a bit of a problem with one bolt which did not line up at first but was able to get it to fit. Super sturdy and holds the bikes tightly. I have told several individuals this is the bike rack to purchase if they’re looking for a rack for their car. Care was taken in wrapping the major parts. Arrived 2 days after I ordered the bike rack. I placed a very expensive bike with fenders on the rack and put the front tire holder just in front of fender because I didn’t want to bend the fender against the tire. We have taken the bikes from Texas to Florida and Colorado. I will buy again from this guy Still have the NV, using it on another vehicle. I can easily load our bikes myself in three minutes flat, it folds up or down with a simple foot pedal lever, it's actually easy to mount on the car, and it fit our budget. But all reviews were favorable so that’s one of the reasons for picking this rack. I wish the locking cable was long enough to go through the front wheel as well as the frame as it has the length to just go around the frame. It fits perfectly on my faithful old Subaru Baja and accommodates nicely the car (truck?) Wanted to get bikes off trunk rack. Please enable Cookies and reload the page. Tightening it more impeded the motion and it could not slide well but then was tight so I had to keep it slightly loose a bit. 288720, Product arrived quicker than I thought it would, damage free. 605899, The Kuat TS02G that we purchased from etrailer.com has been working flawlessly for us for about a year now.

Today we got it on the CRV and loaded the bikes. I ride 4 times a week and wanted to keep it on the car at all times. This platform-style carrier holds 2 bikes by the wheels with ratcheting hooks and pivoting cradles - no frame contact. I didnt want the weather to mess it up. If memory serves me correctly, it was were the lock cap at the top of the arms. 572125, This bike rack has been great. Fit/finish is 100%, it's fairly lightweight compared to most others and not crazy expensive. My only complaint is, the fat-tire "upgrade" kit consists of nothing but longer straps to go around the wheels. Easy to mount, easy to use. 715466, I purchased this Kuat carrier based on my experience with my other bike rack, a Kuat NV2. 585058, I am so pleased with the service, speedy delivery and great price!!!! 391867, We recently purchased this bike rack and a hitch for our Honda Odyssey.

It is very attractive and functional. I am very pleased with the product. None of it is rocket science, but expect to spend a little bit of time getting this put together. The rack has held up wonderfully well so far. 713572, Rack is doing its job. Absolutely hate to have to buy things twice. Very impressed with the service. This review is for the rack itself. The directions gave no caution or guidance regarding how tight to make things. 5 stars Love it! It's very sleek and compliments my vehicle perfectly. I really like way this design holds the bikes; very secure and easy to switch between road bikes and mountain bikes. I love the built-in locks. Seeing this weighs about 1/2 of similar racks I finally chose it. I tried to get some pictures as best I could though the hairline cracks are somewhat difficult to see but in the other picture you can see where the outside coating is literally already coming off before I even used it. Although the rack is only rated for a 4.5” fat bike tire, my 4.6” tires fit. Still love this bike rack after one year however, a note of caution is warranted. Mr G. Still works great, no signs of wear and tear yet. Looks great and is very sturdy. Seems rock solid and built to last. The rack looks well built and really easy to set the bikes on. I don't know why I thought it was made out of aluminum. 418583, Great service and product arrived in two days no extra charge It's not excessive, and is actually less than I saw on my previous cheap rack when it was new. 503704, This is a very good quality product. If anyone cares, my last bike transporter was a 1 bike / 1UP model. I had a Saris super clamp ex and had to take it back for other reasons not related to quality and this rack by Kuwat is a better built higher quality rack and ease of operations is much better than the Saris. The hitch arrived within three days and was fairly easy to assemble. Took it in three road trips already to carry two 29ers and it has performed really well, no issues about bikes coming into contact with each other. 635748, PLEASE do yourself a favor and DO NOT use any other company for your transporting equipment needs!!! Loading the bikes is easy and takes less than 5 minutes. The Kuat transfer bike rack is made of steel so it is susceptible to rust and corrosion if left in a moist environment. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but can't wait. I tried 3 other racks until I got this one and it is a definite winner!!! Etrailer's site provided the best collection of racks and the ability to compare. The lever is easy to press, maybe too soft for my taste. Simply put...it works great. It is a great value for the cost.I know there were three people who purchased the rack after seeing ours.Very pleased, my son is now using my Beta Rack a little small for a fat bike and a regular bike!Great company, great service! I used it on a 4.5 hour trip with no issues The tilt down mechanism is great when bikes are loaded on the rack, and I need to access my hatchback area. The anti-rattle knob is a tiny bit harder to reach but it appears to do its job. Very versatile. They have always been extremely helpful in helping me make sure I have ordered the right size in tire chains and bike racks. The packaging design was flawless with no damage or scuff marks on any of the individual pieces; they were all well protected. Took a 7 hour road trip and had no problems. I saw the rack in the local bike shop. As soon as I received it I put it on my Ford Focus and haven't taken it off since. The assembly instructions were well written and easy to follow. Looks like a keeper! E Trailer Co provided great customer service, great prices and follow up communications! Easily adjusted on the go. Thanks for a great product. This package was shipped out promptly and arrived early. If you clamp them down sufficiently, releasing them is a two-handed procedure. I use it mainly for my 29er mtb. Thats why its heavy but still easy to install if you know what your doing. Assembly was straight forward, (as long as you examined the photos in the instruction booklet for part orientation). This rack is quiet and does not rattle or sway when driving. Suggest using the tools provided to get the correct torque and avoid over tightening the bolts. Thanks for your follow up Dave. arrived in time, and accurate tracking info sent to my email. I wish I would have spent the money and bought a good one (like this) the 1st time instead of wasting money on cheap racks. I'm hoping that my wife and I are good to go for many years. It's easily removable from the hitch. I'm only 5'2" and petite so appreciate the step-through design. Negatives: Security is weak, just as with most other racks. Simple to put on the car and take off. 441615, Just received this in. The 30 pound weight makes it easy to install and easy to store on the wall in our garage. 415281, Love the new rack.
