The NV Base 2.0 is the perfect bike rack for us. We have gravel bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes, and 40 lb e-bikes. We got the 2" version for our Tesla Model Y.
The first thing you notice about this rack is how solid and durable it is. Of course, matte black is awesome - but everything about this rack is well built and sturdy. We are confident our bikes will be safe for transport on this rack. It's easy to remove and install.
I even put a ceramic coating on the rack before using it so that it would be easy to clean and to protect the paint and plastic. This is also a great product to order from BTD to get free shipping!
We use the rack for transporting road bikes. It is very easy to mount the bikes and they remain very secure. Given the COVID pandemic, delivery was delayed by 6 months but it was worth the wait.
We purchased this rack for our fenderless ebikes and have been extremely satisfied. We are in our sixties and are able to mount our 48 pound ebikes on the rack in less than two minutes. The bikes are secure and we have no worries when transporting them. The rack itself can be attached to our Subaru Outback within seconds and folds down even with the bikes attached so that the rear hatch can be opened. Couldnt be happier with this purchase and would recommend it to everyone.
