Rider questions

Q: I have the single bike 1upusa rack and wanted to add three single rack attachments so I can carry a total of 4 bikes. Technically, this is against 1upUSA recommendations. To carry 4 bikes they advise needing to use the double rack plus 2 add ons to carry a total of 4 bikes. If my bikes are fairly light, am I safe carrying 4 bikes using the single rack and three add ons? They say you should only have 2 places where the racks are joined by bolts, not 3. Thoughts?
A: Hi, I was wondering the same thing and wanted to see if you ever gave it a try. My plan was to start with the super duty single (2" only reciever) and make it for 4 bikes. My bikes are all under 30lbs and the 4th bike would be my daughters Micro BMX (17lbs).

    I looked at every other rack. Built to last. I am so glad that I bought this rack. Highly recommend it.

    Pros
    This is a beautifully designed and manufactured rack. On and off the hitch in 30 seconds (really). 3rd bike can be added to 2Up in 30 seconds. Bike goes on and off easily.

    Cons
    None

    One of the few bike related products of used that truly earns a five star rating. As a bike guide, I've used nearly every kind of bike rack made, the 1up is easily the best.

    Pros
    Doesn't touch your frame, all metal construction, fits anything from a road bike to a five inch fat bike, easy and quick on and off of the bikes. I could go on.

    Cons
    None

    It's the last rack I'll be buying. I've had the THULE T2 2" which was ok and was replaced by a Kuat which was terrible.

    Pros
    Style
    Weight
    Ease of use
    Compactness when folded up
    Footprint when off vehicle
    Update 7/31/2016
    Will hold 27 bike without any add on parts

    Cons
    It's pricey but it's well worth it.

    I love this rack. I usually bike by myself so it was nice having a rack that's not overly bulky but I have the add on for a second bike that fits easily in my small trunk and bolts on without extra tools in a min.
    I wouldn't hesitate to by this rack again.
    I ordered and did flat rate shipping and got it the next day!

    Pros
    Made in USA, great warranty, carries all types of bikes, even fat bikes with add-on.

    Cons
    Cost

    I shopped around for a while before deciding on this rack. I made the right choice. This thing is so simple and you can tell it isn't mass produced and that some quality craftsmanship went into the product. When it's on the car it can fold into the bumper, and when off the car it can fold into a such a small footprint, you can just throw it in the trunk. It holds bikes well and i love that it doesn't touch any parts of the frame. The hitch ball lock works well, but i am skeptical that it could come loose as it is held by pressure only. Would be nice to have that peace of mind! I would recommend this hitch rack over any other you may have been considering.

    Pros
    Hitch mount. Quality construction. Foldable. Holds bike steady.

    Cons
    Slight rattle when arms folded flat. One bike only (as sold).

    Most elegant bike rack I have seen period.

    Cons
    None - it's my favorite rack of all times.

    Best rack ever! I'll never buy another brand (and probably won't need to!).

    Pros
    Does everything as advertised. Holds the bike securely without rubbing the frame; it is so easy to load and remove your bikes; little to no wobble. Since it is modular, you can scale down when you need to. I have never tried more than two at a time so I can't say for certain, but I expect the wobble is higher with 3 .

    Cons
    Expensive! But worth the investment if you ride mtn and road bikes. Sometimes operation of the arm is sticky. It seems heavy, so it might be hard for a small person to carry a double rack.
