Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought one at full price and it worked well for about 6 months. The gauge then started to read at 4-5psi when not connected to a valve and should have read 0. I recalibrated numerous times with instructions directly from Lezyne's tech support and had no luck. I got it replaced under warranty and the customer service was great - quick resolution and a new gauge arrived in two days. Unfortunately, the new gauge also has issues so I've ordered a Topeak to replace it.

I have the 1.25" mount option. The rack was fairly easy to put together and mount on the hitch receiver. It has a bit of wobble even with the stabilizer tightened all the way. Most of the wobble was cured by adding a $10 metal hitch stabilizer and now it feels pretty solid.

Putting a bike on it is simple and I'm not worried about it going anywhere. Beware of interference with long longer style fenders if you run them. The trays aren't super long - my size large mountain bike is about max length - so if you ride a long bike you might want to double check or look elsewhere.

The tilt function is great and allows me to access my rear hatch even with bikes on the rack. The cable locks are nice to have, but after a few months they became pretty sticky and difficult to lock. I lubed them every few uses and that has seemed to help.

Kuat does sell replacement parts. My rack was hit while my car was parked in a public lot and I was able to easily replace the broken ratcheting arm for about $60.

Overall a solid rack, with a few nitpicky things I'd like to see improved on a premium priced rack.

It does exactly what it says and creates a very solid light mount. It requires that you either charge it while it's mounted on the bike or remove one bolt to charge. I really like the clean look it gives my cockpit and I no longer have to mess around with rubber mounts on my bars which compromise hand positioning.

They work very well on shallow mountain bike rims - simple to setup and live with. No issues with them leaking as I've had with a couple of other brands. I prefer these short valves as they feel more solid when connecting/disconnecting a pump and the less they stick out the less possibility for damage.

After trying many half shell trail/enduro helmets I've finally found the right one for me. Lightweight, comfortable, and the S/M size fits me better than any other brand (I have approx. 56cm circumference). The helmet breathes well so it's been great for warm days and extended climbs. Multiple visor positions make it easy to ride with goggle if that's your thing.

I crashed fairly hard in this and it saved my head. Visor broke, but the rest of the helmet still looked perfect. I ended up buying a new one to be safe.
