    1Up rack on a Honda Element...bar clearance?

    I'm pretty close to sold on the 1Up, with one concern. The ones I've seen in person seem to sit pretty close to the back of the car. I use a 730mm bar, give or take, and combined with my Element's tall rear hatch I'm a little worried about the bar end hitting the window. Any feedback?

    You can position the rack in or out a substantial amount.
    From rear bumper to center of wheel trays I have 14 inches with the rack as far out as I'd be comfortable with. Meaning having enough of the rack hitch bar in the receiver so things don't bend, stress, etc.
    I run mine 10 inches from bumper to center of wheel trays.
