I have had my Kuat NV 2 for a couple months. It is simply the best rack on the market. It is super easy to use. It holds my bikes tight and worry free. The locking cable could be a bit longer, but I am still able to lock two bikes with it so no real concerns. It also looks absolutely sick compared to the boring flat black racks from everyone else. In regards to the few reviews that say it is terrible to assemble. That is absolutely ridiculous. It literally took me 5 minutes to put this together. Those who struggle have larger issues that assembling this rack...it was truly that easy. I definitely look forward to many years of blasting this thing into the most remote spots I can find.
