    Kuat NV or Saris CycleOn Pro

    Finally getting a hitch on the wife's car so we can save some gas on our bike trips. I currently have a Thule Doubletrack but with clearance and weight issues I will have to sell it for something else. We will be hauling our DH bikes and need a rack that can handle 40lb+ bikes and the Doubletrack is limited to 70lbs total. Clearance is also an issue and need 7"+ which narrowed it down to the Saris CycleOn Pro and Kuat NV.

    I like that the Saris is US made but can't find much on it. I found the Kuat used for about $320 in great condition. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks.

    I've owned a Kuat NV (1.25") for a couple of years and have no regrets about getting it. They are expensive (even more so the past couple years!) but I got what I paid for... quality product and awesome support. I frequently carry ~50 lbs. worth of 29er's locally and occasionally take them on trail excursions in other states as well.

    Run away from the Saris. One of the arms that holds the tires hits some derailleurs. Lines up perfectly to bend, put pressure on some frames. Especially on any Garyfisher/Trek 19" bike, hardtail or FS.
