John G.wrote a review of Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Hitch Rack on September 2, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Originally I ordered a 1.25 inch NV 2.0 along with a 1.25 - 2.0 inch adapter. It turns out the adapter sold here on backcountry.com does not fit the NV 2.0 although there was no indication that it would not fit. Then I went kuat's web site and order a 1.25 to 2.0 inch adapter for a NV. It turns out the NV is not the same as the NV 2.0 and once again it does not fit, once again no indication that it will not work for a NV 2.0 and they don't even sell the NV anymore. Furthermore there is no 1.25 to 2.0 adapter for NV 2.0. All you can do is buy their $149 replacement pivot bracket. So I did, absorbing all the money I saved by buying the 1.25 NV 2.0 on sale. Ok.
Then I load the bikes on the NV 2.0 and notice that one of the clamps holding the bike clamp is broken. See photo. Hopefully KUAT will send me one proto.
It does seem nice, if I can work out all the kink before I go crazy.
Also the cable locks barely fit my bikes and the paint is easily scratch.
