$250

We just changed cars and our new ride came with a 2" receiver...this rack has been great at we just bought the larger size so this one needs a new home. It is the 1.25" size and carries two bikes, though I often would also strap a bag or two back there too (family of 4 + dog crammed into a VW Golf).

The rack is, I believe 4 years old and is the grey/orange NV model that has the integrated bike repair stand. The only nicks on it are on the PVC receiver wing-nut on the bottom/back but that's an easily replaceable part if it bugs you. Our prior car was a TDI Sportwagon and the tow bar sat very close to the ground...would occasionally scrape the plastic nut on sharp grade transitions...just cosmetic.

Comes with the rack, hitch locking pin, key, hex wrench, and installation brochure. As mentioned rack has the repair stand...and integrated locking cable.

Assembled, this thing is big...no way to effectively ship without taking it all apart...so unfortunately local pick up only (located on west side of San Francisco)

Thanks for looking -

That's a great deal considering we paid $450+ for our original NV.

I think you could fit it in a bike box if you removed the trailer hitch part. But I wouldn't want to ship mine either.

Still one of the best bike racks around.

You’re probably right, but’s also pretty heavy. Guessing it’s be about $100 to ship? Just figured at that point someone would just buy a new one!

I also don’t have a bike box. :rolleyes:

You probably already know this, but there is a 1.25-->2 inch adapter for around $15 made by Kuat for that rack. I use the adapter often because I have cars with both 1.25 and 2 inch receivers. Works well.
