Kuat Transfer 3 Bike

The new Kuat Transfer is a great rack option, because it gets you into a platform style bike rack for the same cost as the much more complicated hanging style bike racks.  This rack can fit a wide variety of bikes because it holds the bikes by the tires and not the frame.  Plus the wheel trays are big, you can get up to a 4.5" fat tire in there with no problem.  The spring loaded foot pedal makes this thing a breeze to operate and fold up when not in use.

Great Value for a Platform Bike Rack!Review by Cracks & Racks - Brandon

Overall Value
The Kuat Transfer has an amazingly low price tag for a "platform style" bike rack. The rack does require some assembly and some of the steps can be easy to overlook, so make sure to follow the instructions closely.

I like that this rack will work with either hitch size. I can easily take it from my Wife's Subaru and plug it into my Tundra by adding a small sleeve (included). Some Platforms will only do one or the other.

Platform racks are just easier for loading and unloading bikes and they take the frame of the bike out of the equation by holding the bike by the wheel. Their downside was their high price tag, until the Transfer.

The foot pedal is great for dropping the rack, but with bikes loaded is hard to get to. You would also need to purchase an additional lock kit to secure the rack and bikes.
