Sticking your bike--or worse, a pair of steeds--into the trunk involves painstakingly puzzle-piecing your disassembled rides and all of your gear together without damaging anything or getting chain grease everywhere, Fortunately for those of us who aren't puzzle masters, the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack solves the travel problem with an easy to load hitch-mount setup. The Transfer 2 utilizes tray-style mounts and a locking system that doesn't touch the frame. A rear wheel strap and a front ratcheting arm hold bikes securely in place without needing to put pressure on the frame's tubes or cable guides, and Kuat's PerfectFit adjustment system also lets you fine-tune the front wheel cradles to avoid any potential contact between bikes. Carrying your bikes securely is one thing, but being convenient is another, but Kuat made sure the Transfer 2 is both safe and easy to use. It folds up cleanly out of the way when not in use via an easy-to-use spring-mounted foot pedal, and it features a third locking position that angles the rack down so you can add a last minute cooler of tasty snacks and beverages to the trunk before embarking on a trail-slaying or pavement-cruising adventure.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
