Are you kidding me...$356
5 5

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

I have been using a Thule T2 Classic hitch rack for a few years now. No issues, but wasn't really designed for 29ers.

I came across the Kuat rack for $356 and ordered! Sold my old one on Craigslist and couldn't be more happy.

The Kuat rack is a thing of beauty. Literally a piece of art on the back of my Cayenne. Hitch adjustment makes this feel like it's part of the vehicle. Perfect for oversize tires and the internal cable lock means I don't have to add my own for security.

This is one solid rack system all the way through.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Let me start off by saying the functionality of this shift is superb. I just changed out my 1 x 10 42t to the 1 x 11 using the 46t cassette and it works great.

The only knock I have on it is the shifter indicator. In the past you could remove the indicator and it came with a cap to cover the opening. On this model Shimano does not include the cap with the shifter. I had to purchase one separately? I really don't care whether or not the indicator is there, but it "crowds" the room needed if you have a dropper post or fork lock out located on your bars.

Actual functionality of the shifter is awesome!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased a stock Specialized Rumor for my wife and have been upgrading components as time/money permit. For $95 you will never find a better set of crank arms. I am changing her over from a 3 x 9 to a 1 x 10 system with XT all the way through. Great purchase, easy to maintain and will take any physical abuse you want to apply to them.

1 X 11 Upgrade
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have been making my own 1 x 10 systems for a few years now with XT cassettes and a wolf tooth 42t. Finally decided to upgrade to a 1 x 11 system using the XT 46t.

The Shimano XT systems never fail. You may add a few grams of weight over the XTR, but for half the price you can't go wrong with XT. The entire XT product line is bullet proof.
