Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought both 2" and 1 1/4" versions for each of my cars, and they are great. I'd prefer if they had gloss finish, like the NV 2.0, but there is nothing wrong with the matte paint, and I didn't want to pay another $100 for the bike stand that I'll never use. We have two bikes - one heavy electric bike with 2.5" tires and one road bike with 26 mm tires. the front cradle holds the wheels securely and locks them in place preventing them from rotating. The back wheel ratchet strap is easy to apply or remove, even with one hand. The bikes are secure on it - I have driven up to 70mi/h with bikes on and on city roads with occasional bumps and minor pot holes. The ball locking mechanism is amazing - there is no rattle at all with this rack, as it is attached rigidly to the hitch. Customer service was helpful and helped me save money with a discount. I am completely happy with the purchase and the seller.
