 So this doesn't include the part that actually holds your bike? Not even one??

Good job going cheap on this one, Kuat.

 There was a PB review on this one someday. I guess there is a fair chance a PB visitor should know what it is.

That's WTF. This thing is badass if you want access to the back of your vehicle with your bikes loaded on a rack.

 Not really that confusing. "The Pivot allows your bike rack (up to a loaded NV 2.0 4-Bike) to effortlessly swing away, providing ample clearance for tailgates, rear gates or just increasing your hatchback access."

 If it's for tailgating, it should be advertised like a beer commercial. Then you will feel left out if you don't have one.
  • 33 2
 Not 100% sure what I'm looking at here. Is it a rack for your rack? But comes with no final bike rack, so if you win, you have to buy one of theirs... not the greatest prize ever but it's (sort of) free, so i'll quit moaning now.

 @macross87: It looks like it would work for anything using a 2 inch receiver. I hate having to climb over my rack to get into the bed of my truck this would be awesome.
  • 4 0
 @Rigidjunkie: Agreed. I think this would be even better for the SUV and wagon crowd. FYI, for tailgate clearance, I went to a local fab shop and got a 12" extension fabbed up in "male-female" configuration so it would slot into my hitch, then push the rack off the back. With nice heavy steel, I have hung 3 fullys off the back, and can totally drop my tailgate and get the dog in and out. A fairly inexpensive solution, plus I got to go the fab shop which is always a good time! Fairly easy for them to make, and you will love the result!

 I think I should win this purely for the hilarity of seeing this attached to a 1996 1.2l Renaut Clio. Will post pics.

 You don't attach this to Clio. You attach Clio to this.

 I've got a Clio too (though more modern). No big deal, I can strap this on my roof no problem.

 @ismasan: Their heads will explode when they A: see how small it is and B: when they realise it's not even the smallest car in their range! Always have a giggle at US tourists in their hire cars wondering how we manage with such small vehicles.
  • 1 0
 @DaMilkyBarKid: As small as it is though, I treat it like a van and a lot of the time I go riding there's 2 DH bikes, 2 persons worth of gear, tools etc and big bags of food in it and there's still room!
  • 1 0
 @haroman666: Ok, I'm cheating here. I've got a Clio Estate, I think from late 2014 or so (bought it used last year). I can easily get two bikes (up to 15kg each) on the roof and two bikes (up to 30kg each) on the tow bar. And then I've got the complete interior available for gear and company. So yeah, that's good enough to go on a trip with four riders. My previous car (a 2007 Peugeot 107) didn't have a tow bar (and if it did get one, it wouldn't be certified to actually tow anything so that'd be merely for a bike rack). Still with that car I could get two bikes on the roof. Max roof load was 50kg so it could even take three lightweight bikes if I'd get another rail for a bike on there.

 @haroman666: Sounds like my dirt cheap -98 Ford Fiesta. Also that fits 2 DH bikes, 2 DJ bikes and 2 persons with gear and all essential stuff. It is entertaining to see faces of people when unloading the car at some bike park.

 I’m not going to enter this one because I don’t need some random box steel welded together with some random clips and things attached.

 This is actually an awesome prize, thank you for the opportunity Küat!

 I agree! I have a Thule 4 bike platform rake that would work with this. It's not brand specific. All you need is a two inch receiver. Would make life easy to access the back of any vehicle. The PB trolls are angry today.
  • 1 0
 @beirge294: Yep, I dont understand all the complaining. I could lift my hatch with a shuttle rack full of bikes on it. Buying this if I dont win it anyway

Bonus: you could, in theory, attach your plate to this and leave your rack on if you live in a place with tough laws on license plate visibility. It would peek out underneath

 when will the winners of the first few days be announced?
  • 3 0
 There's a period where the winners have to accept the prize before we can announce winners, so that process takes a bit of time to firm up. Normally we run a post that includes all the winners, just keep an eye on your Pinkbike and email inbox to see if you have won.

 for all the non americans apparently "Tailgating, which originated in the United States, often involves consuming alcoholic beverages and grilling food. Tailgate parties occur in the parking lots at stadiums and arenas, before and occasionally after games and concerts"

another gift from the USA to the world!

 All this stuff is free, todays prize is pretty rad and I knew what I was looking at the second it popped up.
I had a older co-worker that once said to me, "Some people would complain about getting hung with a new rope". Some of todays comments apply sadly.

 I love new ropes. I also love hanging out.

 @HaydukeLives: don't forget to bring your bike when you come to pick up your rack so we can do a ride
  • 2 0
 I'd use it ~ it's a PIA to bang my shins on the damn rack sometimes and getting things loaded up, swinging the rack out of the way so I can park my butt and drink a bear would indeed be handy.
  • 3 1
 I have a Kuat bike rack, bought it to replace a cheaper one after reading reviews. The thing has more movement than I'd like, I can only imagine what would happen by putting something between it and my car....

 This looks like it would weigh more than most cars in NZ. And I don't have any idea wtf it is!

 If I win, I will use it as part of a booby-trap for thieves after my bike: above the door = squish.

 They need to give the option as which way you want it to swing out. i have a rear swing out bumper on my 4Runner and the tire carrier swings out to the right making this upgrade unless, bummer
  • 2 0
 I wonder if you can flip it over. Might have to remove and flip the red lever too. Looking at it, if it were upside down then your rack would be on the lower square tube instead of the upper square tube. Might be too close to the ground, but maybe not with a 4Runner.
  • 3 2
 Rak attach custom makes them for you to swing out in the direction of your choice. Also handmade in the USA.
  • 1 0
 @Endurahbrah: thought about that but it would probably limit ground clearance. i got a aftermarket bumper to increase clearance and my bike comes on lots of offroad trips with me. Gonna check out what dude suggested below
  • 3 3
 I have one of these for our sprinter van. Allows access to the back doors with my one up rack on the back. Mine however came from Rak attach, who kuat very obviously stole this design from. Bummer when someone takes a small made in america design and product and totally rips it off.
  • 3 0
 Actually Kuat worked directly with Walter at Rak Attach to produce this and did not "steal" any design.

 @ftccbass:

Well in that case, my bad, and that’s awesome to hear. Been a happy rak attach owner for a long time and it bummed me out seeing an almost exact replica.

 @Longroadtonowhere: No worries. It was mentioned in another post back in the Spring and they commented about it as someone said the same thing as you. Smile

 Which end to you attach to the car? Does it fit a Volvo?

 Volvo have trucks, so probably yes

 I clicked anyway. It looks heavy, so it probably works as a boat anchor as well.

 Damn, I actually need one of these. My rack doesn't lower enough to clear my rear door. Been suffering with it for 9 years.
