    Kuat NV owners question
    I've been looking at this rack ever since I saw it at Interbike and love the look of it. My question to you is what is the distance from the bottom of the 2" reciever hitch to the top of the rack when folded down? I have a Honda Element and have a limited space between a rack and the tailgate. Thanks for the help.

    Are you trying to figure out whether or not you would have to remove the rack in order to lower the tailgate?

    Yes...and no. With the rack folded down I have very little room to play with. I tried to fit the Thule T2 and I would have to trim the top of the release handle to have it not hit my tailgate. The Kuat looks promising but it looks tall when folded down.

    Any luck on figuring out the fit on your Element? I posted a request for pics from NV/Element owners on the Kuat FB page but didn't get an answer. If you get a chance to do a test fit, please post pics here and on their FB page for future Element owners.

    Finally got the rack and hitch on my new car. It is great, loven the rack and the work stand. It is really sturdy and the bike doesnt move at all, even with me driving. :thumbsup:

    I called Kuat and asked for some measurments directly. It looks like it will be about 4in too tall. :madman: So it looks like the NV is out. Love the look of it though.
