Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Thanks for the response I ended up ordering the Super Duty 2" hitch, single bike. I wanted to minimize wobble as much as possible right from the start. I must say this is one well built piece of equipment. What's interesting is it's the only rack I found in my research to haul one bike only. Price wise, not much more than or in line with some of the hanging styles which don't provide as much support of the bike.

My most important criteria were: stability of the bike, stability in the hitch, compact storage. I was torn between this or a Kuat. I kept coming back to 1Up because more often than not I'll be hauling one bike, two at most. I can keep this rack compact with 1 bike and storage will be a breeze. Add on another tray if I need to.

The only con I see to this is the expense. It's not for everyone but if you want an exceptional build, flexibility to haul different #'s of bikes, appreciate Made in the USA by small business, it is an outstanding option.

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

It looks to me like tray mounts would, over time, put a fair amount of lateral stress/torque on the bike's wheels, hubs and dropouts - stresses for which they're not designed - from the starting and especially the stopping of the vehicle. Is that not a matter of any concern? (I'm still using a 25-year-old Softride hanger.)

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

With a carbon frame, I'd rather have it mounted this way then put all the weight of the bike on a couple parts of the top tube that definitely aren't meant to handle any contact or direct force.

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Well I did once break a Gary Fisher aluminum frame in half, right in the middle of the top and down tubes. Never thought about how I carried it maybe being a factor, thought it was just because I "ride heavy." Interesting.
