    A quick pole. Do you have any bike interference on your platform style rack?

    Do you have to drop your seat on your bike for clearance on one of the following racks; Thule T2, Yakima Holdup , Kuat NV core, Kuat Sherpa, or Inno INH305? Any other clearance issues? The Thule T2 platforms adjust in/out and right/left so I don't expect anyone to have an issue with that rack. The others may since some have no adjustablility.

    Not on my Sherpa, but I've only had a few different bikes on it.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???

    The T2, and the Holdup have adjustability in the bike trays that will allow you to nest 2 bikes better. The NV has 13.5" of spacing between bikes, the NV Core has 10.5", similar to the Sherpa.
    I cannot speak for the Inno Rack.

    I have an NV and no issues whatsoever with a pair of 26ers. They are different sized bikes, but the spacing is more than plenty for them.

    The kuat NV is fine in two bike form. The moment you add in the additional two bikes, it's the worst of any for interference.

    1Up lets you adjust the bikes as you put them on. You don't have to figure what slot the bikes are going to sit in ahead of time.
