I finally pulled the trigger on a bike rack after too much research. I went with the Kuat NV 2. The features on this rack are hard to beat. The toughest part was installing a receiver hitch on my transport car a Mini Cooper. I had to disassemble the entir back of the car...quite a project. Anyway here are a couple of pics of the completed project. I love the ease of use and the rack. The frame is never in contact with the rack...it is held in place with a front tire arm and a back tire strap. The bike repair stand is a cool feature. It also has a retractable cable lock. Anyway let me know if you would like any specifics. List was $529 I found a coupon online for $465.
