1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

I have been researching for some time for the best possible hitch rack out there, and i think i found it...

http://www.1upusa.com/product-quikrackblack.html

Its a tray type of hitch rack, can hold up to 4 bikes with a 2'' receiver, 3 bikes with a 1.25''. Build quality is insanely good, incredibly sturdy, will fit all types of bikes, and nothing ever hits the frame. What really sold me is if you are someone like me who doesn't like to leave the rack on the truck all the time, it folds up nice and small and can be stored very easily in the trunk not taking up too much space. Anyone in the market for a hitch rack must look at 1 up. Here is a picture of my bike on the 1 UP.

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Looks great, but holy cow....$350 for 1 bike! $609 for 2, and then additional $249 for each after that?! I guess maybe if my bike were worth $thousands, but it probably wouldn't be worth it to haul my kid's $59 bicycles.

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Platform bike racks are the best IMHO. But that's pricey for a single rack. Did you look into Kuat Sherpa (29 lbs) or Thule 916 XTR 2 ?

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Yes it is expensive, but you do get what you pay for. The build quality if amazing. Also some big advantages this rack has over others is..

1. What if you always travel by yourself, like me, and you want a low profile single bike rack, there are no others out there...

2. If you want it to be easily stored in a trunk and not have it take up too much room, this is the rack for you. Please see below picture.

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

Does it have a ski/snowboard attachment/adapter like Thule and Yakima hitch racks?

Re: 1 UP USA Quick Rack Review

This is without a doubt the best bike rack for a trailer hitch. I have one on my Jeep too. the construction and finish are superb. It will last a life time.
