    1Up Rack Arm Binding

    I've been using a single tray 1UP for the last couple years, and now find the right arm is binding when trying to move it to the down position. The arm holds the bike fine, but trying to stow the arm is causing binding and it appears to possibly be a problem with the slider/handle.

    Anyone experience the same?

    Yeah. Loosen the bolts just a tiny bit on the arm that's causing problems. There's probably dirt and grit in there.

    I was out playing with that earlier and found the same thing. Just loosened up the dome head allen head screw on the offending arm and it worked just fine.

    Mine started to get a little harder to rotate and had a terrible squeak sounds to it. Put a few drops of 10w30 into the areas where it pivots at the end, nice and quiet and moves easily again.
