Very solid, attractive & HEAVY rack
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just put the NV and the Add-on together. Took longer than I thought it would. I'm a dork I guess, but the pieces are all pretty heavy and it takes a while. With both racks joined, it is heavy. I can maneuver it myself and get it on the hitch. Once on and screwed tight, it seems bullet proof. It is certainly the most attractive bike rack I have ever owned. I think this is going to work out very well.

Some slight detractions. It must come off for my garage door to shut. This is quite a bit of on and off every time I want to go for a ride. It makes my back up alarm scream! :) The conversion form 2 bikes to 4 bikes is not fast. I might, as others have noted, add a single tray for roof mounting just to accelerate things. It is very expensive and, again, heavy.

But all and all, it looks to be a very solid purchase.

A Picture is worth . . .

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We have used the 120L and the 60L for international travel. They are simply amazing. Here, in Komodo National Park Indonesia, getting ready to board a liveaboard dive boat. On a canoe trip in Northern Maine, on the Penobscot River, no need for a dry bag. This was enough. Rugged, water proof, light weight and attractive. Best duffels I have ever owned.

Binding Recomendation.
Picking up my second pair of JJs. The last 3 years have been heaven. Resort skiing, mostly back bowls, very aggressive. 6'4", 190lbs. Currently have Marker Griffins. What is the best set up for the 115 waist on the 185?

Thanks!

I read a few nice reviews of this table (which I remain baffled by), and figured the aluminum would be a good surface for camping (no burn or melt & easy to clean). I unpacked and set it up. It was easy enough to figure out, but it did take a few minutes longer than I would have expected. But once set up (and set up properly mind you!), it is worthless. The table is so light, any breeze or sneeze would send it flying. It is so unsteady and floppy, I can't imagine placing anythying with weight or value upon it. I packed it back up and returned it without ever taking it out of the living room. I'll look for something else - maybe the wood/vinyl one from Orion
