    Holy crap! The rack looks awesome but it's over $1500 for a 4 bike setup. I'll wait to see if there is a sale otherwise I am fine with my Rocky Mounts Monorail.

    Took me a while to find it too. It is buried in the text on the front page.

    My advice to Cal is, RETIRE!
    let me add to that........retire and license your patents

    I am not sure if Twotone was joking about Shark Tank but after I laughed, it occurred to me that it was a very good idea.

    They would have told him to license the patent to a major company.

    Him debating them on national TV would have been more entertainment than this forum.

    But maybe they would have convinced him?

    I think Cal tried licensing his patents, whatever they may be. Over the past two years, his web site advertised this. No one took him up on his offer. I do not know what patents he has but anything can be patented. However, defending them is the real challenge. I think you will find that his patented technologies really are not worth much.

    Wait!!! It's MORE expensive than 1 Up? Oh man, I've been waiting on this thing to finally hit the market because the prices suggested early on were quite attractive. No way I'm paying more than a 1 Up.

    Seriously? You have been waiting for Cal to deliver as recently as 10 hours ago? Great patience.

    What's the big deal? Just like me he probably has a rack that is doing the job and was just waiting. I'm going to end up with a new rack, just don't need one right away. You have to admit, if he had delivered at the original price it would have been a great deal.

    Yup, have a functional rack (hanging bike style), so able to "wait" but still have a means to transport bikes.

    There is no "big deal" just surprised that he was waiting that long with reasonable expectation of it happening. But having no immediate or midterm need for a rack is helpful. Still, when Cal could not deliver on multiple rendition of list, at least to me and many others, suggested likelihood of ever delivering was very close to zero.

    On the waiting itself, I waited 5-6 months for a warranty frame, and had no issue because of multiple bikes. U waited so long that they upgraded me to Carbon frame for free. So I see your point on virtues of waiting.

    I would guess that to be a "No" as it was never sold nor manufactured and no money was collected.
