A cable fits nicely in the shackle giving me a one key solution. I also don't mind using the Velcro strap as a backup. As a plus, my hatch clears the rack when it is folded in the fully up stowed position making access to the back really easy!! Loving it so far.

    This is not the same 1up. Look at the other thread for more info. 1up-usa.com and 1upusa.com are not (or are no longer) the same company. If I need anything else for my 1up rack I'll be using 1up-usa.com.

    I may purchase another add on rack sooner than I had previously planned from 1up-usa.com because who knows what could happen if a legal battle starts.

    Any Canadian owners care to comment on the shipping/duty/brokerage fees for getting one of these up to Vancouver? the web site mentions duty , but I thought NAFTA meant no duty on made in N.A products? Im pretty close to ordering one ( or the other 1upusa "mach 2" rack ) but am a little worried about being hit with a whopper of a shipping bill.
    Thanks!

    I'd go with terrible. Why, just why?

    It's either both or neither. The license plate didn't touch the wooden rail but I don't think there was more than a quarter of an inch in between.

    Yes you are going to get hit with a bill. One up will only ship with a courier so the courier charges a brokerage fee, usually $50-$70 whether there is duty or not. If they shipped usps to Canada post then there would be no charges. This goes with any online ordering that uses a courier like Fed-ex, UPS, etc.
    Even with shipping fees it is worth it. Give them a call and see if they'll send it in the mail.

    I go up to Canada (southern Ontario) quite often. For a nominal fee I can make a personal delivery. LOL

    make it out to Vancouver and we'll talk! lol

    thanks for the input guys, sounds close to what 1up said to me. Duty free, but brokerage is up to the shipper , usually around $60. ish.

    I almost never order online or internationally, and the few times I have ive be pretty blown away by the surprise fees .

    Thanks for the info!

    I think the wife may be getting me the 1UP Heavy Duty Double for Christmas. Hope that's the case, I've been talking about ordering one for months.

    In the back of my head I have this weird worry that one of my tires will have a slow leak and go flat while on this rack though. Anyone ever had this problem?

    Yes kind of. I pinched and had to drive home with a flat on my bike. If you have the arms adjusted properly it isn't a concern.

    I have loaded up with normal pressure on my tubeless 29-er, so low/mid-20's (psi) pressure, and found a flat tire at the end of my drive. Bike still secure on the rack, but it's a concern ... especially with a road bike where the margin between loose and tight is only a click or two. We have the optional wheel locks and they add security for that situation.

    This is the only drawback to this rack where the only part of the bike the rack touches are the tires. I've had this happen to me when I had one of those days where I just kept getting flats. I was on my fat bike and I haven't done the tubeless conversion yet so I was running tubes. The rear tube kept getting flats and I was running out of patches to keep it inflated. I had to drive to the nearest bike shop to pick up a new fat tube just so I can get air in the tire to get the bike home. I suppose if you keep a couple of velcro straps in your car you can always strap the rim to the tray if you're concerned with flatting out while on the rack.

    I had a Yakima King Cobra 2 Roof rack and the method to secure was the front tire clamp. There were several times where I transported bikes with flats but the clamp mechanism stayed in place. for 1up the obvious solution as you suggest is velcro strap. but with better tires and rims for tubeless who gets flats anymore? i have not had a flat tire over 3 years. m

    but now that you mention it, I am going to put a bungy in the car for insurance.

    I use the wheel locks just in case, but I doubt the bike would get loose enough to come out of the rack even with a flat.

    Yes, tires deflating can make an issue but the arm is up around the wheel as well. The bike would wobble more but it won't come out.
