Bradley Gehrigwrote a review of Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack on October 3, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had the original Sherpa and it was the best hitch rack design that I had seen for a smaller car; the Sherpa 2.0 improves upon all of the small complaints I had with the original.
Everything folds up small enough that nothing makes contact with the back of my car anymore (rather cars as I have 2 of these racks now).
For such a light rack, it has done a great job of hauling mountain bikes, and is supremely secure. The new lever to allow the rack to lower so you can get into your rear hatch is also significantly more robust and has a very positive feel.
The lock redesign is also aces; much easier to use and access.
So far, I have zero issues with the new rack, and am absolutely floored by the quality and thought that went into this.
