Michael Palamarawrote a review of Kuat NV Base 2.0 Bike Hitch Rack on June 6, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I specifically bought this rack because I saw no need for the built in repair stand. I also prefer the color and surface durability of the textured matte finish over the gloss paint of the regular NV 2.0.
All in all this rack carries almost any bike confidently with little to no movement. I think the security locks could be improved. They are okay for running into a gas station but I certainly wouldn’t trust them for long periods of time. I also like the modularity of the rack and the ability to carry 2 or 4 bikes with the add-on.
Best rack I’ve owned to date!
