    a few questions for Kuat NV owners

    Just two quick questions for people who have lived with the NV or NV Core for a while.

    Does the cam system that tightens the NV in the receiver wiggle loose over time?

    I'll be using this rack for DH bikes and a trail bike with a Fox 36. Are the ratchet arms sufficiently wide to avoid contacting the fork lowers?

    My Kuat NV is about 3 years old, average use 2x a week. Cam system works great and I have not experienced it loosen over time.

    Your second question I have a Trek HIFi not a DH bike but never had any interference issue. I suspect there is plenty of space for a DH bike but not certain. No DH bikes in my part of the country.

    I really like the Kuat NV

    I've had mine for a couple years now, and it's never wiggled loose.

    However don't over tighten the cam. The recommended turn past hand tight turned out to be too much for it, and I snapped it. Luckily the homies at customer service set me up with another one.

    Arm never touches my fork lowers.

    Go for it, it'll be the last race you buy.
