Oct 9, 2021
by Trevor Lyden

 Saris really flexed their engineering muscle by putting stickers on an older model of a Pro User rack.

 @lake-st: yeah everything can be defeated with the right tools, but a locked pin will prevent some opportunistic thieves. Some of my vehicles I’ve bolted the receiver in, and it’s an uncommon automatic hitch so they can’t just hitch the trailer up to their vehicle and drive off easily. I’m pretty paranoid about it, but one of my friends had his trailer full of tools stolen a couple of years ago when he ran into a hardware store for five minutes.

 Yeah, that concerns me. I have a Recon that cost me a donkeyload to get to Canada. When I park at the trail head, I have it chain locked to to my hitch and if possible I backup to a tree or pole so you'd have move the vehicle ahead to get it out of the receiver in one piece.

A little spendy, but it has worked (functioned in the non rusting, always locks and unlocks as it should sense) flawlessly. I move my rack between vehicles a decent amount and was tired of trying to nurse along corroded cheapies that lasted under a year’s time.

I also have a Laclede chain and ABus Granite lock to buy some more time when stopped traveling, though someone always stays with the vehicle and bikes.

 It's funny that bike rack "technology" has basically just become a competition of other brands copying either 1Up or NSR racks... usually at higher price tags.
  • 25 0
 The best part is 1up is still the only one with a full aluminum design for the tray style racks. I off road a lot and have backed into trees, bottomed the rack out, etc. and it's amazing how well it's held up. Have had to bend a couple arms back into place but still haven't had to replace any broken parts.
  • 2 0
 @hi-dr-nick: Can the 1Up handle 27.5x4" fat wheels, or road wheels? Can any of these handle this range of widths and come in a 3 or 4 carrier style?
  • 9 0
 @Staktup: Yes, the 1up is super adjustable to fit all sizes of wheels. I use mine for both my road bike and 29"x2.5" bike without having to change anything. www.1up-usa.com/compare-racks
  • 7 0
 @Staktup: yup. OneUp has a fat bike spacer kit that will take up to 5" wheels, I believe.
  • 9 0
 @hi-dr-nick: Not only that. You can buy spare parts for the entire rack. Someone hit and run my rack in a parking lot and bent one of the trays. No problem. Bought a new tray and hitch shaft and it's good as new.

 @hi-dr-nick:
had a some embarrassing moment and backed into a tree with my 1up on, had to replace a piece and found an exploded parts diagram with every individual part available. Customer for life

 I was sold on the nsr because no moving parts. No plastic parts. My nsr 6 has a "pivot" which is a bolt and locking pin to fold it down. Super simple design made of steel. The worst part is with larger head tubes you need to pry open the forks.
  • 8 1
 Came here to say the same thing. Was looking at it thinking, wow they are all finally realizing 1up is the superior design, and are now doing a crappy job copying it and and charging more. My 1up is going on 6 years old now and still works as good as day one. Why anyone would buy any other rack blows my mind.
  • 2 0
 I'm on my 3rd (a pair on the roof) of 1UP racks now, only because my current car won't take a hitch without hacking up the bumper, and they really are just the best. The ONLY thing they could maybe improve on, is using stainless bolts instead of whatever zinc coated stuff they use. If your rack stays out in the weather, those eventually start corroding and pitting. I don't really care because its $4 of bolts at Home Depot to get new ones, but that has happened, to all my racks. Outside of that, they're amazing and they have awesome customer service if you ever need. I have no idea why people won't learn and still buy the other gimmicky and plastic-ey crap.
  • 4 1
 @makripper: the worst part is the inevitable rusting of the rack and the rubbing on the fork collar. The VelociRax doesn't do either of these, at least not the rubbing on the collar.

 @mm732: Hold up, are they really trying to charge $600 for a one-bike rack? Then another $400 just for a single add-on to make it a two-bike rack? That's just silly. I'm sure it's quality and all but no friggin way.

As far as the rust comments, just another reason to not live in heavily salted areas like the upeer midwest and NE! haha I'm on year 4 of my rack in CO and zero rust.
  • 2 0
 @hi-dr-nick: No, they aren’t. Go back to the website and review it again. The 2 bike rack is 600 and an add on is 229-259.

The Equip-D is a bit more but still not as you’ve described
  • 1 1
 @rallyimprezive: I'm on their shop section of the site: quikrstuff.com/shop

The only options are a single bike rack that comes in either 1.25" or 2" hitch for $599 each (maybe you're looking at the name "Mach2" and thinking it's a 2 bike rack but it is not) and the add-on is $399.


Actually, I think you're referring to 1up, that is not what we were talking about. See that I was replying to the comment from @mm732. Fully aware what a 1up costs since I was the first comment stating how long I've had one haha
  • 2 2

 @IamZOSO: one day, you will also be a 65 year old with back pain.

until then, you won't need it.

Also, be a dick to the 70 year old who wants to put her step thru city bike on the rack to go ride with the grandkids next town over.

Grow up.
  • 9 1
 It makes sense for the only real justifiable use for ebikes: getting people with disabilities on the trail. If you don’t need a rack like this then you should just ride a real bike.

 @dontcoast:

I seriously doubt that rack is going to be marketed to said 70 y/o woman who want's "to go for a ride with the grandkids". I live on a golf course/retirement neighborhood with a majority blue hairs. Haven't seen any of them on PB and can guarantee they wont spend that much scratch on a rack.

This, just like kashima shocks on the kuat, is a sign of an industry run amok by marketing
  • 13 1
 @ATXZJ:

I can guarantee you I sell various $700-1200 racks to 70yo ladies with step thru frames on a regular basis - multiple a week.

Just because they're not on PB doesn't mean they're not spending money - in fact I can tell you pinkbike knowitalls are often terrible customers.

The only thing I can agree with you with is the Kashima is a total joke (but it IS shiny!)
  • 1 1
 @dontcoast: "I can tell you pinkbike knowitalls are often terrible customers."

Yes, I can see that (maybe). Hopefully most of us are not daft enough to pay full msrp at a bike shop, only to wait weeks to get a part and also pay tax on it.
  • 5 2
 @ATXZJ: good bike shops work on having inventory and staff to fix things for people who have no idea how to repair it, or maybe more money than time.

Once again, you are not the target market.

Get off your horse, it's high.

(and thank you for ordering online, since you presumably know what you need and how to install it. saves us time. just don't bug a shop if you mess up the install)

 @Rich-Izinia: totally agree, hostly I bought it due to hype and out of curiosity - lack of plastic parts is stupid since your car and bike have plastic parts and last just fine, did I mention it rattles? And u need some duck tape to fix that;

 1up used to be the most expensive option on the market for a 2-bike hitch rack... now they're the cheapest?
  • 2 0
 They're one of the few companies that hasn't considerably increased their prices. In the spring, I was looking for a 1 bike rack so I went with a Kuat Transfer V2. It was $279 + 10% off vs. $319 (I think) + shipping for the Quickrack Single. Now, the Transfer is $359 and the Quickrack Single is $335. If I was making the choice today, it'd the Quickrack no question.
  • 13 2
 Got to really love racks to spend more than £100 on a 2nd Thule that does the job perfectly
  • 2 1
 There is no such thing as a 100 dollar-pound-whatever Thule anymore. Maybe the cheapest trunk mount is 100 pounds, but that's a different class of rack, the cost of convenience is a huge factor. Any of their hitch mounts are in the range of most of these.
  • 1 0
 And if you're talking about roof mounts, well then you need a $400+ roof rack first to put them on, so... Still not 100 pounds.

 @justinfoil: Yep. I was looking at used racks in the spring when I needed to get a new rack, pretty much all $250+ for the hitch racks.

 BC cops have hung out at the bottom on Silver Star and other roads to hand out tickets for obscured license plates . Not a problem in North Van where 50% of cars have a bike rack - but could br a problem for you. .A North Shore Rack is inches away from needing a red lumber flag - 3-4 ft from the bumper.i have scene some 4 bike racks that are defiantly past this . A cop can pull you over anytime for unsafe load- I followed a truck through Squamish where a xl 29” downhill bike hung inches from the ground on a hanging rack - well below the bumper -if you were a boat trailer- you would be pulled over for sure.

 @Afterschoolsports: I've always driven a pick-up and in my area they are only required to have visible front plates as it is expected that the rear may be blocked due to a trailer or lowered tail gate. So I've never even given it a thought, tbh
  • 1 0
 An obscured license plate is a “non moving” violation. You have the right to correct it before they issue a ticket. They can only issue the ticket if you’re unable to correct the problem on the spot. Make sure you have the ability to remove the rack on the spot and wait for them to fk off. If you can’t remove on the spot, take a picture of vehicle without rack to court, case dismissed.

  • 5 1
 @seraph: Meh, I realize you're making money off selling these items and expect it. Best luck.

If a rider requires a powered rack to lift his/her bike onto the back of their car, maybe they shouldn't be riding mountain bikes. How are they going to lift that e-tank back onto the trail if they have a spill, which we know they will.

To me, this rack is a solution to a problem that never existed. Also, the lights just take it to a whole new level of crap.

 @ATXZJ: Lifting a bike up that's tipped over after a crash is way different than lifting the entire bike a few feet vertically to put it on a rack. I'm not sure why that's a difficult concept to grasp.

 Does anyone know where you can buy just the upper bike rack portion of a NSR/velociraxx style bike rack? The part that holds the front wheel/front of the bike.

 The Kashima Kuat allows you to open the two arms with one hand, whilst the other holds your bike that for some reason can’t be laid on the ground. Not sure what those riders do when they need to take a piss out on the trail?

 @dontcoast: but then grandma won't be able to get the rack onto the hitch anyway because these things probably weigh more than her e-bike
  • 2 0
 @nilswalk: look again, the Saris has casters so presumably you can lower it so the rack is sitting on the casters, release it from the receiver and roll it out of the way. Next time you need your rack roll it in, tighten, lift and away you go. You can probably leave the bike(s) on the rack when you detach it. Not my cup of tea but actually quite a well thought out design.

 Pretty much every ‘hitch’ in the US is a square receiver that can be used with either a ball for towing, or some kind of bike/cargo rack. Smaller cars often get a 1.25” receiver whilst larger vehicles get a 2”.

 Any chance the Velocirax or Rubicon will warp wheels from the side-loading? Probably not an issue for MTB, but that one pic of the road bike had me thinking that wheel won't be true after a long trip.

 Shingle back off-road racks for people in Australia. Really high quality, if a little heavy and expensive.

 Oh no, that industrial grade mounted bearing block hanging of the side. It's just so ugly.

 Road bikes and wheel baskets on vertical racks are a no go. Also how much plastic crap is on the more mainstream players racks….yikes

 Best Bikeracks are from Uebler from Switzerland! Easy to handle, super light (sub 14kg), 3 years warranty and the pricing is really fair!

 @Zany2410: i no pickup truck but 4 kids and if I want to go for a trip where I need a car then the group counts also more than 4.
But this seems to be a general problem with bike racks in europe...

 @squarewheel: I'm building a trailer for that. The oldest kid is now 8 so I can just toss the kids bikes(3 of them) in the back of the transit custom. Not going to work for long like that so a trailer it is. And yes, I have tried pretty much the racks I can find but either I just don't have the talent for tetris or the racks are shit.

 If you can't lift your e-bike and place it in the rack you don't deserve have a bike.
