    Sadly I think my rack with the nice anodized trays has bitten the dust. My dad backed into it while I was parked in their driveway, so it should be replaced by insurance, but since they're powder coating now it won't be quite the same. On the plus side, I like the idea of the notched bars, so I guess it's kind of a wash.

    Plus I'm without the rack until insurance gets its act together, which is not cool. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.

    Which part of the rack got damaged? Specifically, if the tray itself is OK, that can be swapped over to the new rack so you can have the best of both worlds - the notched bars and the anodized tray. I'm pretty sure the trays are simply bolted on and swappable.

    I fixed it. One of the bolts on the hard-to-move bike holding arm was way too overtorqued. It is the bolt in the middle that connects the main arm to the locking short arm, the one missing in this picture. Loosen it a bit and it will work fine. Do not make it too loose or you will end up like the guy who made that pic though.

    Yeah, that would be ideal. One of the trays is what got hit though, so I'm not sure it's going to be that simple. I'll have to take a closer look when I get the new one.

    1up Quick Rack Quick Review.

    I have a 2Dr Rubicon with the spare on the tailgate. Does anybody have this vehicle set up and do you need the extension option to provide bicycles space between the rack and spare tire? Finally does anyone have a direct phone number to the manufacturer ? The web offers email which I've sent but would like to call as well re backorder timeline .

    There's a phone number on their contact page: +1 608-568-7261

    I'd be curious to hear what they say about backorder times. I ordered my replacement rack a little while ago and still haven't heard anything about when I'll be getting it.

    I have a factory hitch kit on my JK Rubi. However, I did swap out the original receiver for the longer unit... Hidden Hitch 87424 - Hidden Hitch Class III 2" Receiver Hitch for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec ...which allows me to partially fold up the rack (I have it folded 3/4 of the way up). However, if you are not concerned with the rack being folded up when not in use, the gate will swing fully open with either the extended or OEM receiver.

    Phone # is on their site under Contact Us. I recommend using the factory hitch and the extender sold by 1UPUSA. It has been modified to tighten fully. The factory hitch will give you more departure clearance. Even with 35s, I can fold it up fully and still be a couple of inches away from the tire.

    I tried using an anti-wobble extender on my OEM hitch, but just didn't like it. In my neurosis, I viewed it as another point of failure. YVMV.

    I have taken the 1UPUSA extender + rack on some rough trails that my Subaru or regular SUV would never make. That extender does not budge or loosen. It tightens to the receiver just like the rack itself does. My friend also used a tightening/locking extender he bought online but ended up using the one made by 1UP since his one still wobbled a bit. Even if I still used the NV or T2, I'd use this extender now. Given my paranoia, I still check it often and it has not loosened up. Still, check it all frequently. Every extra piece is a piece to check.

    I ordered my 1up hitch last Wednesday and it's due for delivery tomorrow. It shipped the day after I ordered it.

    Yeah, but the racks are still backordered according to their website. I ordered mine a week or two ago and still haven't heard anything.

    I emailed 1up this morning about the back-ordered racks and this is what they said:

    "They’re currently shipping 3-5 days from the date of the order."

    I'm seriously considering get a 1up, I have a small car with good gas mileage and a tacoma. The car has a 1 1/4 and the truck has a 2" receiver. It would sure be nice to have 1 rack for both vehicles. It looks like the 1up 1 1/4" to 2" adapter works well. . .

    What locks should I get? The wheel locks look simple, but also look like a great way to destroy my wheels. . .

    Of course I say that and two hours later I get an email that my order has shipped. It'll be here Friday.

    For locks, I think most people are just using u-locks with cables wrapped around the important bits. That's what I do anyway.

    I have the 1 1/4 with 2 inch adapter mounted on my Highlander 2" receiver. Works really well.

    I have an old U-lock on the hitch to the 1up. I use a Kryptonite 51 inch x 12 mm chain to lock the frame of the bike to the hitch. A thief could still get my wheels and seat. I ride before work and my car is parked in a suburban office park parking lot during the day, with my bike on the rack. From what I read only a thick chain will deter most bike thieves. Even then the real pros will use a portable angle grinder with a cutoff wheel and be through the chain in a couple of minutes. Since it is a suburban lot, this is probably overkill. I wouldn't park it like this in a major city.

    I will post pics up later, but just installed the 2" 2 bike rack on my 2002 CRV. Top notch, top quality materials and machining. This is a VERY SOLID unit, no questions asked. The hitch inserts far enough to allow the rack to fold up and not contact the spare tire hanging off my tailgate!

    Thanks for the pics of the extender installation. I might consider that for my Trooper. It would be nice to get just a bit more clearance from my spare wheel. It folds up fairly snugly in the tilted position. With a bike, I have to nestle my pedal into the wheel, and the pedal usually scratches it. It makes it difficult with a wide platform like a twenty6 Predator.

    I believe 1up sells an adapter to mount a roof rack tray to an existing 1up hitch rack. Check out their website. Other than that, visit your local welding shop to see what they can do for you.

    The Bike will appeal more to the VRC crowd, a One-Off Titanium I commissioned back in '91 and I don't seem to have anymore pics of the Datsun.

    Yep - you're right. Got email confirmation of that this morning. You can bolt a roof rack to a hitch assembly they sell for $175 or to an add-on frame for $75. They don't sell either on their website...one has to call to order.

    Thanks, rdb!

    So what's the consensus on the black vs silver? I reviewed the thread and a few said black does scratch, but most were happy with it.

    Black would look way better on my truck, but it is $100 more with the 2 bike add-on. I'm also worried about durability, fading, and scratching. I mean it's a rack and just like my bikes it will get beat on. But if it will look trashed in a few years I'll go silver. If it holds up well I'll go black, and never go back.

    The only thing I would worry about is the fading. If you plan on leaving the rack out in the sun, day after day after day, then it may fade. If you don't think it will see this extreme amount of sun, then you only have to worry about chipping and scratching. Damage like this is quite noticable, but it is a easy fix with a small brush and touchup paint. I have even used a black sharpie on other items just to make it not so noticable.

    ps, my truck is black and I'm not sure which one I will get, but I am going to get one for sure.

    I have the black and have not had any issues. I do however remove it when not in use, and do not keep it on the truck.

    Final got 1 and can't believe I waited so long

    Finally purchased a 1up and wish I had done it years ago! The rack is a machined piece of art and is such a pleasure to load and unload. I am coming from a fork mount roof rack with a quick release fork bike. I decided when I got my new ride with thru axels I wasn't going to do the roof rack front wheel removal with adapter crap. Wish I had come to that conclusion sooner. Great rack and I will be getting an add on soon.

    Ok let's test the 1up. Do a hard launch to 100 as fast as you can. If the bike stays on I'll get rid of my roof rack n buy one for my 2.slow diesel. Lol. Lovin your setup!

    I am impressed someone actually makes a trailer hitch for a GT-R. I am guessing that might have been the only one ever sold?

    I am loving my 1-up, but it is a bit noisy and there are clearly issues with the powder coating process on the trays. I don't have a lot of experience with pc, but know that there is someting wrong when I can peel off a chip of paint the size of my finger nail.

    I am guessing there is an issue with their prepping process, or they are not getting enough heat into the trays after they have been sprayed.

    Unless something has changed, I don't think their racks are powdercoated. The silver ones are bare aluminum (at least mine is, they might be clear ano now) and I'm pretty sure the black ones are anodized.

    Either way, I'm sure I would contact 1up and let them know about the issue. The service seems pretty good from them.

    Yes, they switched from anodizing to powdercoating the black a while back. The flaking is a known issue IIRC...

    Anodizing fades big time over the course of just one year under the sun. GT Zaskar used to come in anodized finish in the 90s, almost all of them had two-tone fades after a while. I wouldn't use anodizing on anything highly exposed to sun. PC should be strong enough not to peel like that, unless they goofed it. Tell them your issue and see what they say...

    NICE! Lol


    Powder coating does not peel and should not peel. When you get something powder coated, like wheels, you get a lifetime warranty on the clear and paint. So I'm sure it's only paint. You can get it powder coated, just google local areas. It's not expensive at all. You can custom color it.

    Got my 1up back around Christmas and it is the silver and powder coated.

    Powder coat is just a means of applying a paint. It's being used because it doesn't have the solvents that wet painting does and therefore it doesn't have the OSHA and EPA restrictions. Powder is distributed through electrostatic means and then it's heated to melt it and bond it to the surface. Surface prep is just as important as with wet paints and then the heat treating is also critical. And you don't get to see if it really worked until it comes out of the oven.

    So if it isn't right, I'd ask them to make it right. Doubtful they do their own powder coating and their coating supplier will own the problem if brought to their attention.

    Big ask ... someone with at least 2 bikes, can you take a video of tilting the rack down while its loaded with bikes?

    Barring a video, can I get comments on how easy/hard it is to tilt the rack away from the car ( to get access to hatch ) when loaded with bikes. ( seems I spotted one - and it was "I never would tilt while loaded, its too hard" )

    Comparing to Kuat NV ... the usual suspect!

    Thanks
