Tony K.wrote a review of Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack on June 12, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was leaning towards the NV 2.O rack but since our car (Kia Soul) only supports a 1 1/4 hitch I didn't need all that steel and weight since only 2 road bikes will every adorn the Soul. Don't get me wrong, if I had a 2 inch hitch and needed to carry 4 bikes then then the NV would be my choice. Kuat has done a first rate job with this new Sherpa design. They included everything from the bike lock to the lock for the hitch so no one walks off with your bike rack. There is even an anodized bottle opener key ring (very nice touch). The rack is easy to operate & at 30-ish pounds, not too heavy for my wife to lift. My only slight warning is the assembly was a little challenging because the parts are so precisely manufactured (not much wiggle room). This all adds up to a purchase that will last a lifetime.
