This rack turns heads. Even non bike people recognize that it is special. Very unique design, and I have only seen two others in two years.
The hitch tightening system works as advertised. The front and rear tire holders work smoothly and stay tight. I can throw 2 bikes on it and drive all day on the freeway or rough gravel roads and not worry a bit. Carries skinny tire road bikes as easy as fat tire downhill/freeride bikes, and stays rock solid. Carries 20" (with included adapter) through 29" wheels. The "trail doc" is a nice touch.
Bottom line: I have carried 2 bikes at least 10,000 miles since I bought mine, and the only damage, besides a bit of sun fading (I live in the desert), came from getting rear ended. The rack took it like a champ (see pic) and protected my rig (no bikes on it). The other car required some bodywork. This thing is worth the price.
BONUS: Kuat's customer service is flat amazing. I'm spoiled.
I want to see what this looks like on a Nissan Xterra. How low profile is it?
Saw these on the rack in Whistler for a ridiculous price. The quality of these shorts is obvious even at a glance. Warmer than typical bike shorts, and longer. Not recommended for very hot days if you are going to be pedaling a lot. Do work fine for trail riding, but a tad noisy. Designed for gravity riding, and designed well. If you want a pair of shorts to survive several seasons of downhill thrashing, these are great. Run a little tight if you have a big butt.
Note: the pattern in "grey" on the black/white/grey pairs has a tinge of purple for sure. Black and white usually matches well with any other color, but the purplish can throw that off, for those who care.
Confused about the non-stick nature of this pot set.
Is it just the naturally non-stickyness of titanium, or does it have a non-stick coating, like teflon?
It matters for my choice of cooking utensil.
