    i had an old sportwerks. spent a lot of time with a thule. and then i bought myself a yakima hold up. The yakima just has better materials and feels more solid IMO.

    Looks so much better than the 1-up and I think performs better, my buddy has one and I don't trust the way the arms work
    This has hoops for just one wheel, and it does not appear to hold the bike as solid as other carry racks.

    just wondering why you like this so much when there are racks with better grasp than this model????

    Amazon had a 20% sale a few weeks ago on top of their Visa card discount so it ended up $385. Couldn't turn that down. Now, I just need to find a 2 bike attachment and I'm set.

    Have you owned one of these? Once the bikes are on there, they don't move period.

    Yep.. As solid and stable as you would ever need them to be... and the mounting system is perfect as it doesn't touch any frame and is simple to use..

    Just got the 1UP rack and installed it on my car yesterday. I was hesitant to buy 1up as from the pics it looks kind of home made. In person this rack is very nice.
    It was the only rack I could find that would allow 1 bike but with expansion if I wanted. It is the only one I found that once it leaves the hitch it slants up away from the ground which is very nice for a car to give extra clearance. I can leave it on the car all the time and it takes a very small amount of space and I can open the rear hitch. It is the only one I found that can do that.
    I have a Yeti 575 and a fatbike so I bought it with the spacers for the fat tires. I also have a thule rack that the arm grabs the tire. The thule works but not as well with the fat tires as the tires do not fit in the tray. 1UP so far seems like a lot nicer rack and made in the USA!

    I've been hauling my bike inside my Honda Element for the last few years, finally got tired of it and bought a hitch and 1up rack. Awesome rack, really great purchase I wish I would have made a lot sooner.

    I just sold my Yakima StickUp today and ordered a 1up rack. Right now I just got the single bike version. Probably order an additional tray in the next couple of months.
    The Yakima StickUp did its job just fine except I got tired of not being able to open the rear hatch without lowering the rack first.
    AFAIK, the 1Up is the only rack that is modular so you can leave just 1 tray out(and leave the other tray in the trunk if you want) all the time. This should allow you to open the rear hatch without having to lower the rack.

    As for Yakima CS saying that the HoldUp should be mounted to class II or above hitch only. I can see how that is. The class I hitch on my 02 WRX wagon is so flimsy that I can lean on the rack and see the hitch flex! Was driving around with 2 bikes on the rack and every bump on the freeway made the rack bounce so much it was downright scary.

    Those of you that recently ordered the 1Up, how long does it take before they ship?

    Just looking at the 1UP made up my mind for good which rack I'm gonna buy!
    It's obviously American rugged quality, I love it.
    Plus, it will easily fit my kids smaller bikes.

    Happy T2 owner here. I like the option of moving the trays so bikes don't hit each other.

    My bmx bike works just fine. The rear tire mount slides up all the way to the center. 16" no idea but it would probably work.
    WHY ARE YOU YELLING??!1

    My T2 also has been totally solid and is really not that heavy. I bought it over the Raxter as it is able to fold down and allow me to open my rear hatch. I also paid about $200 less than a 1up.

    FYI, don't even trust the Thule locks at all. You can take a flat head and with a bit of twist it'll come right out.

    I got rid of mine since it rusted like crazy as well. After a bit of rain it'll have a puddle of rusty water underneath it.

    i think i'm going to be getting the Kuat NV - can't beat amazon's price. it has 2 bike, built-in cable lock and bike repair stand. same weight as the 1up 2 bike. and it doesn't look like a senior citizen motor scooter carrier j/k

    Maybe it's just me, but if I were basing my purchase decision on what a rack looked like then I'd probably buy the rack that looks like it could hold a~200 pound electric scooter....

    To the 1up owners: someone earlier posted that the arms can fit most bike wheel sizes. I assume 26er, 29er, and road bikes all work easily. Has anyone tried a 20" wheel bike? Does the arm hold that no problem or does it need to be modified? It looks like the rod at the far end of the arm that contacts the wheel could be moved down to different holes - does that need to be done to make it work for a 20" bike? If so, does that need to be done to adjust between 26er and 29er bikes as well, or does the far setting work for both?

    Thanks

    The far setting works for the larger sizes (26" and >). You'd have to move the contact points for smaller bikes.
