Why is this thing so damn expensive? Name Brand or something? I go a swagman for $150 six years, same deal with the 2 hoops and all. Only thing is that my swagman doesn't fold and I wish it did like this one.

Looks like a nice rack but can't get over the price, even with the discount!

Great price, only a few bucks more than a single bike 1upusa. 2" hitches only

EDIT: Nevermind. I thought this was the NV 2.0 (the "2" in "2 Bike Rack" threw me)

Yeah, it is a misleading way for them to list the product. I'll edit the original post for anyone looking for the 2.0 version, so there is no confusion.

Was going to post this, glad I searched. The 2 bike add-on is on sale too. Here is the post I put together:

Nice high-end bike rack that will hold up to 4 bikes with the add on kit. The rack also has a built-in bike repair stand. There is a newer model out right now called the NV 2.0 and the only glaring difference I noticed is the latch mech for the tilt function is activated by using your foot as opposed to having to reach down with your hand in the original NV. This only works with 2 inch hitches. Great option for SUVs because the rack tilts down allowing you to access the tailgate without unloading the bikes first.

Kuat NV 2 Bike Add On [backcountry.com] $159.25 (Free Torque Tool included)

For anyone using an Amazon Visa, you can buy at Backcountry through Amazon to get the cash back.

Awesome price for a premium rack. I've got this and the add-on and love it! The new 2.0 version is nicer than this, but can't beat it for this price. The bike stand is handy....can't say I used it a lot, but it did come in handy on a few occasions. Kuat did put a lot of thought into their design. Only warning is that with the add-on, bikes do sit closer together and may rub the arm of the rack.

I realize these post were from awile back but it seems that Backcountry is way overpriced.
