    I was told: "We make our own wrenches which are not available anywhere in stores. We have never had a customer's rack get stolen to our knowledge yet."

    Regardless.... I agree with you. It seems highly unlikely anyone would have it (save a fellow 1UP owner, kinda funny). It actually says on their website that they would replace a stolen one. I'm very pleased with this company's product and customer support to date.

    My reasoning for attaching the U-lock to the bike rack and trailer hitch is to prevent another person with the custom hex tool (1upusa bike rack owner) from stealing my rack.

    What are you trying to say about 1up rack owners?
    Do you really think that a person that would buy that expensive of a bike rack would be out stealing them?

    If you got the add-on... do you have another U-lock to secure that?

    Uh, if the custom tool was made by 1UpUSA (it is) and if it comes with the rack, why would someone who owns the rack want to steal yours? Isn't that a really, really, really small population of rack thieves?

    Granted, the chances of that happening is very low but it gives me a piece of mind. Just paranoid I guess.

    This is right off there web page. "We are so confident that our security system will prevent rack theft that if your Quik-Rack is stolen off your vehicle we will replace it for FREE!"

    I would worry more about the bike on the rack than the rack.

    Guess I should be even more paranoid then as recently I lost my key. Pretty sure I left it in one of the trays and went on my way and fell off somewhere between the house and the trail parking lot. Never did find it as I went back that night and didn't see it, it's still probably somewhere on the side of the road. As for the key, 1UP will sell you extra ones for $10/each.

    Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

    Then again, since 1UpUSA guarantees to replace the rack if it's stolen, I'd not worry about it. Heck you could call them and ask them how many times they've had to make good on that claim. My bet is zero.

    It's not the rack I'm worried about. It's my $4000+ bike mounted to it that I'm worried about. It they take the rack, they'll also have the bike and I doubt 1up USA will replace that, too. Yes, I can lock the bike to the rack but they'll have plenty of time removing the lock once they have the whole thing in their possession.

    There is no help for that. A battery powered reciprocating saw would be through that aluminum rack in less than 30 seconds, or any rack for that matter.

    No rack will protect that bike from theft.

    Besides that, imagine the image of a bike thief dragging your rack AND the bike down the street. The fact is, they will concentrate on stealing the bike and they won't give a rip about the rack.

    Bolt cutters will make a <10s job of a cable to attach the bike to the car/rack.

    The replacement warranty does make me feel better about the rack getting stolen. However, there's no way I would ever leave my bike unattended on the bike rack. Locked, shackled, whatever... My baby is always in eyesight of me or a friend.

    I guess everyone's situation is different. In my area (greater NYC) there are lots of professional bike thieves who would go around in cargo vans and target expensive bikes. Just the other week I read that they caught people with 2 vans full of "high end" bikes that were obviously stolen. So they have no problems taking bikes still attached to racks and throwing them in the van and take off for their "chop shop". I don't usually keep my bike on the rack but at times it is unavoidable. After our rides we usually to grab a bite to eat so we're forced to leave the bike on the rack while in the restaurant. We also go on long trips with our bikes so at times they're left on the rack unattended either at rest stops, restaurants, etc. I think an ounce of prevention is worth it's weight in gold. I know no locks will always prevent a professional bike thief from taking it but a little bit of deterrent will keep an honest man honest.

    1UP bike rack OK for road/touring bikes?

    Hi, guys -

    Thanks for all your great feedback! I'm nearly sold on the 1UP as a bike rack for loading my heaving cruiser/touring bike onto my 2012 Mazda 3 5-door hatchback.

    Last question - has anyone put a regular road bike (i.e. a bike with slim tires) on the 1UP rack? I might have reason to also lug a lighter-weight bike on this rack. However, I'm not sure if a slimmer-tire'ed bike will sit securely on the 1UP and not shimmy back and forth on this rack. All the pictures I've seen of the rack show it holding mountain bikes with fat tire.

    Any input?

    Thanks!!

    Any bike with any tire size, or width, fits on the 1Up rack. No worries, it works like a charm.

    If there are professional bike thieves around, they have bolt cutters and reciprocating saws. Either one will make short work of any rack or method of locking your bike to the rack. There is little you can do to stop these guys - they specialize in getting it gone in under 60 seconds (usually way under). They aren't going to steal your rack, they are going to take your bike. The rack is the least of your worries.

    As far as rest stops and restaurants on most highways. Once out of urban areas, the risk is considerably down. No matter what, at rest stops leave someone with the car and if you stop to get something to eat, park the car right by the window where you are eating so you can watch it.

    Have good insurance and, if you want, a cable to lock the bike to prevent casual theft as long as you are watching your stuff.

    Living in NYC, you need to get out a bit. The rest of the world is not quite like that (by a long ways) for bike theft. You are in the belly of the beast.

    I've looked a few times and had yet to find just what I wanted for a lock to lock my 1UP rack to my Mazda 3. Found one today so thought I'd post it up for others that may be looking for the same.

    (I know it's doubtful anyone would have the needed tool to remove the rack from the hitch, but at the price of this rack and how quickly it can be removed if you DO have the right tool, it will make me feel better when my car is sitting at a remote trailhead and I'm out riding)

    I stopped in at Walmart and they had a BELL Pocket U-Lock that fits PERFECTLY. They had blue and silver colors and it's a heavy little chunk of steel.
    Most of the U-locks I've seen seem to big, at least on my small Mazda.

    Below are pictures of exactly what I bought.

    That looks like a good fit, but it's no smaller than the Kryptonite mini-U lock that was mentioned earlier. It looks slightly longer, in fact.

    I don't use my U-lock all that frequently, but it's nice to have it on hand for when I want the option.

    I actually had missed the Kryptonite link, haven't been through this thread in a while. I do see the Kryptonite is $46, and the Bell lock I got was under $10. Anyway, it's one more option.

    Your trailer hitch assembly is bolted to your car. I drive a Nissan altima. The uhual installer had to remove my mufflers and bolt it in. The bolts are accessed through the trunk of my car.

    My original intent was to also use a U type lock to lock the rack to the receiver but the design of the side loops on the receiver for my Accord doesn't allow me to lock it that way. The receiver on my wife's RAV4 will work but not on the Accord so I have to use a cable lock to secure the rack.

    Just because you ARE paranoid doesn't mean that they AREN'T out to get you.

    But I wish you peace and not having to worry so much. The standard special tool is security enough.

    Just received a black 1Up rack and mounted to my wife's 2002 Acura RSX. Definitely an improvement over the Thule trunk rack that (by design), latched over the glass. Although never any issues, visions of shattered glass and an airborne Mojo SL made me pull the trigger on the 1Up.

    Build quality is exceptional and I was surprised at how lightweight the rack is. Setup was a breeze and the rack locked into the hitch without any play.

    The only concern I have is that when I mount my Mojo SL to the rack, there is a fair amount of side to side play. The arms are snug on the tires, bike even between arms, and arms as close to 90* as possible.

    After looking closer, it seems like this play comes from the notches where you can change the orientation of the rack. (horizontal, or tilted down to access the trunk).

    Is this normal? I assume I'm just being paranoid, but seeing the bike "wiggle" in the rear-view mirror (even over small bumps) is a bit unnerving.

    Are you tightening the black screw clamp down on the bar that slides in to those notches? I notice my rack has much more play before it is tightened down.

    Yup. I noticed a big decrease in the wobble when I tightened that black knob (behind the bar). Unfortunately, I still get wobble somewhere.

    I've now notched a few 2hr driving trips with the bike loaded (up to 80mph) and although the bike is wobbling a bit, the arms are staying locked (not moving on the tires at all) so I guess there's no issues.

    I'm just curious since everyone raves about no wobble. If you grab the top of the bike frame and try to move forward and back, how much movement do you other guys see with your 1up?

    Wow. Sweet Fatbike!

    Yeah, it was an added bonus to see that a Fatbike fits in these racks just fine. I had to let a bit of air out of the tires, but that's not a big deal. I brought a Pugsley down from one friend who was selling one to another who was going to drive it to somebody else in SoCal. Easy Peasy.

    If you mean left to right, none.

    If you mean towards the front of the car and the rear of the car, a little.

    Front of the car to back of the car.

    When I'm driving, I can see the bike moving this way.

    Well, the headset will always allow for some rotation which presents as front to back movement. If it makes you feel any better, I've used Thule, Saris, Kuat, and Xport racks and they all have close (Kuat) or a lot more movement (everyone else) and aren't as easy to use as the 1up.

    It's fine. It looks worse than it is. Follow your car in someone else's car and see for yourself. The distortion/perspective from inside your car/through your rearview mirror seems to exaggerate the movement (I guess this is prob true of the other racks, too).

    Thank you for the assurance! I'll feel a lot better now knowing I'm seeing the expected amount of "play".

    I took the plunge on this awesome rack. My old rack was beginning to rust out and this is pretty much the king rack of all racks. Honestly, it's in a class all it's own, but I think we all know this already

    I bought the fat-bike kit and it's super awesome. My old rack was awkward to cram the fatbike onto. I also bought the wheel lock 1UPUSA.com :: Wheel Lock - though that is only compatible with the normal tray (not the fatbike tray due to width) This lock is essentially a coupler lock and I've looked around for wider ones, but they're just not made apparently.

    Anyone have any leads on a similar locking system that would accommodate the fat-bike tray width (somewhere over 5"?) I like the coupler system due to it simplicity, though I have a cable I use currently.

    For me, besides the added security, the U-Lock provides an additional fail-safe to the ball-wedged mechanism. I almost passed up on this wonderful rack because I didn't feel comfortable without a hitch bolt/pin, until I saw the U-Lock idea. I forgot who originally came up with this since this thread seems to go forever , but whoever it was...thank you

    After 40K miles I can say that mine has never come loose or close to loose even while taking my car off-road. However YMMV..

    My rack came with a velcro strap as a safety just in case the ball did come loose. I'm sure others got one, too. I know it's not really needed and was provided for piece of mind sake but I still use a lock anyway.

    Purchased a used 1up rack from another forum. Got the rack and the ball bearing is missing, bolt is not there and the internal slide piece is also missing. Anyone have a picture of what these pieces look like. Trying to fix this weekend so I can use the rack. Might have to wait and call 1Up on Monday. Any information would be appreciated.

    I hope you got a really good price on it because you may have to send it back to 1Up for repair unless you're extremely handy. Just check out their website and youtube and you'll see what it looks like.

    Worst case I wonder if you could drill it to accept a hitch pin. Slide it in your hitch, mark it and drill.

    Do not drill for hitch pin!!! Drilling will ruin the rack.
    Check inside the box for the ball bearing, if it's in there just put it back into the hole and take a hammer and tap the point to keep the bearing in. If there is no bearing you will have to call 1up Monday.

    "Do not drill rack"
    Agreed. Do not drill it out. The design of the rack is such that the ball really holds the rack in solid (Minimizing wobble). A hitch pin would not hold a rack or hitch in as solid. Check the box one last time and if not there then just give them a call Monday morning. I'm sure they would help you out getting the rack up and running by next weekend.

    Received my 1up yesterday. Everyone says pics don't do it justice but damn its true.

    It has to be the most sturdy/looking rack I've ever seen on a vehicle.

    Matches my 12' Focus great. I'm hitching it around but have yet to transport my bike. This week at some point.

    Thanks to all for their info and experiences. My biggest concern was no hitch pin but after seeing how this works Im confident in its retaining abilities.

    Once you go 1UP you can't go to anything else.

    Except maybe in 4 bike applications an NSR-4, sick rack my friend has one.

    Still loving mine, and the only thing I wish was possible would be height adjustability.
    it is juuust a bit too tall for letting my tailgate down (2nd gen 4Runner)
    Optional lower sideplates or two different sets of holes would rock.


    (eta: or it's a good excuse to get a bit newer vehicle )

    Just ordered mine this morning and right after lunch, I received the UPS notification that it should be delivered on Thursday.

    Now if my Etrailer hitch comes in that quick, it will be nice.

    I look forward to getting my bikes off the roof and leaving the front wheel on.

    I also hope it tilts enough to open my hatchback.

    You're welcome! Enjoy the rack as it is awesome. I should have gotten a sales deal from 1Up as mine has "sold" quite a few of them down here...

    Maybe you can get a % of everything you help sell.

    I had a long talk with my wife over the weekend about getting this rack. In the end, she told me I could not spend money on a new rack so I ordered it this morning. I'm sure the fight will be on when it arrives.

    I normally live by that saying but for some reason I tried to be open and honest this time.

    I tried to play the "made in the USA" card but then she reminded me that I drive a Nissan and own a Yeti...

    Depends on the model... just like your Nissan. BMW, as well as MB and VW, have assembly plants in the US but I doubt they have enough US content to be classified as domestics.

    I'm torn. Not about whether to get one of these - that's going to happen. No, I'm torn about whether the black version is worth $50. My bike is black, my Jeep is black, and I (obviously) like black. But man, $50 for nothing but a color? I dunno if I can do that.

    1up Quick Rack Quick Review.

    I'd guess the black would show wear faster. FWIW, the raw looks pretty clean.

    Plus it will show scratches a lot more easily as well. I pondered about dropping extra $100 on my setup, but stoked that I didn't lol.

    1up Quick Rack Quick Review.

    I thought about black for a sec too. Then I figured the silver would stand out better. I want people to see this thing. The last thing I need is some jackass backing into it cuz it blends into my car. The silver looks real nice too. Bling!

    I may have an extra silver one. It seems that 1up actually charged for and shipped me 2 racks; both the 'Single Quik Rack with the AD-ON'.

    Hopefully the charge gets reversed quickly but I don't know how they are stopping the shipment. I guess I will just deny the delivery if I'm home when it arrives on Thursday.

    Now if any of you are in FTW, TX, stop by tomorrow and help me install my hitch.

    That was my exact thought. My black car, black bike and black rack would just camo'ed too well. I wanted people to see that I have something sticking out past my rear bumper. Here are a couple pictures of my silver rack

    Yeah, I've actually considered a lot of these points. I'm sure I'll be happy with whatever I get (which also suggests the cheaper option is the way to go), but that isn't going to stop me from agonizing over the decision.

    I know I read somebody mention it somewhere in this thread that they had cut their finger at one point on their 1UP rack. I believe that person sanded down certain edges.

    The first day I installed it I had a paper cut like slice, problem is I couldn't pin point where it happened. Today, while installing the rack into the hitch the rack cut me, well more like shaved down my finger pretty bad. I didn't feel it, but as I walked back into the garage the blood started trickling FAST. I could barely remove pressure and take a pic before blood ran down my arm.

    I am pretty upset that this thing gashed me so deep, you can see in the pics below this isn't a cut more like it shaved skin and some flesh off clean. Took 1 good hour of serious pressure to stop the bleeding, there isn't anything to stitch really.

    I went back outside and looked over the rack REALLY well, and am still unsure as to the cause of this. No rack should under any circumstances have an edge that can do this. I'll contact 1UP later tonight to see what they say. This is probably the 20th time I've installed/removed it between my two vehicles.

    What are you hoping they say???...you don't even know where you cut yourself,so how could 1up possibly help you? Comes across as you're hoping for compensation...

    Mine will be delivered today.

    I installed my hitch last night. I purchased it from Etrailer for $140 and installed it in 25 minutes. I was impressed as I am not that mechanically inclined.

    I am NOT hoping for compensation that is a scumbag motive. That thought never even crossed my mind.

    I am 100% sure the rack cut me, what Im unsure of is where on the rack, so I can avoid that edge when handling it in the future. Some of you guys are such 1UP fan boys you failed to see the point in my post. And I'm not the only one who has experienced this.

    There has to be an unfinished edge on my rack somewhere, 2 cuts in 1 month is not normal. I'm not bashing 1UP I love the rack, I simply wanted to share. Maybe when you, or your wives end up with a cut finger you will care, until then keep blaming me for handling it as anyone would have.

    edit-page 37 someone mentions sharp edges and being careful, then someone chimed in with the possibility of sanding the edge but no follow up post.

    Regardless if you think I'm being trivial or not, be careful handling these things. I've emailed 1UP to ask if they have had feedback regarding sharp edges cutting anyone to see what they say. People questioning my character and saying Id post anything like this for compensation are internet warriors who are too critical of things...

    If you cut yourself, how isn't that your fault, when hundreds of other users haven't? It would be like someone getting hurt while riding. An injury is possible in almost any context - because it has happened doesn't mean it there is anything wrong apart from bad luck.

    LOL, I didn't see your edit but maybe the rest of us are being careful and you're the one catching up. I hope that you figure out how you were getting cut and that you can avoid it in the future. Good luck.

    There shouldn't be any edges on a bike rack sharp enough to cut anybody handling it. That's where some of us obviously have differing opinions.

    You guys think Its my fault; I think this shouldn't be possible. I find it amusing how you guys think because people don't post it that it hasn't happened before this.

    I for one agree with you 100%. I look forward to receiving mine on Friday, but wonder whether I need to try to find the cutting edge and sand it prophylactically. I worry a little about my kids around it too.

    Did you ever figure out which part cut you? Did 1Up tell you where the most likely culprit is and the best way to sand it? I wouldn't want to ruin the finish needlessly.

    I'll PM you what 1UP said. All these other clowns who posts negatively towards me sharing an experience can continue their "1UP does no wrong" mentalities.

    I have not been the first to email them with this issue though.

    I was careful with mine when I got it. The aluminum looks well machined and very precise. It appeared to me that so much precision could allow for some sharp edges, though I didn't run across any on mine. Perhaps some finishing processes were not carried out on yours and edges that might have been beveled down a bit were not? Good luck, and it's good to hear 1UP is taking care of you apparently.

    I don't think you're the first to have cut yourself on the rack. I know mine has drawn blood because I walked into by accident and it took a bite out of my shin. I just think it's funny you came to complain about it. It's a mechanical device - just by looking at it you should be able to see that there are dozens of places you could pinch or cut a finger. It also starts to get heavy when you start adding extra trays - is it gravity's fault if you stub your toe when you drop it?

    I'm glad 1up was helpful. Maybe you should share their input?

    Really, I don't like knowing you got hurt and I wouldn't want it to happen to anyone else, either. I just think it's funny how upset you are about it. I would've just put a bandaid on it and told myself to be more careful

    Sigh

    I'm not upset about it. All I wanted to do was share my experience. If I drop anything on my toes, pinch my finger on anything or slip and fall on something wet its MY FAULT. Walking into the rack is much different than what occurred. You cant be so dense people...

    I don't see the connection to simply handling a rack like anyone else would and walking away cut from it. I've handled NSR, Allen and even cheap-o racks and never had something be so sharp as to cause a cut from holding it.

    Are some of you that critical that you truly don't see the difference in these? Post 1493 sums up my thoughts on the subject best, I wont repeat myself.

    I'll keep my experiences to myself and tread lightly among the bad a$$es on this forum. I'll keep laughing when I see you on the trails tits bouncing in your Jerseys, I'll be the guy with the bleeding finger

    Whoa no need to get your feelings all hurt. Arguably, many forum users have used many racks and most of them haven't fallen victim to the sharp edges of their racks, bikes, or the morning paper.

    Since you thought it was important to share that you were injured, why not share what 1up said? I want to know if I'm doing something wrong.

    Got mine and it didn't even cut me.

    Seems like a cool rack, love it so far but then again, I have only loaded and unloaded the bike.
