1up USA Quik Rack - Review
@elchivoloco: Yeah, it takes kid's bikes as well. You have to undo some bolts to move the bar that grabs the tires. The stock location will take 29" to 24" tires. To go to 20" you have to do the bolts thing. I used to leave one tray dedicated to 20" tires.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
@tcmitchell: Very sturdy. You do get some up and down flex on bouncy roads but it's not too bad. Pretty much the same flex you get with 4 bikes on the 2" rack. I have no problem ripping up access roads in my WRX with 3 big bikes loaded up. The ability to trim the rack down to 1 bike is real nice on the smaller car.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
I have both the 2" and 1 1/4" for my vehicles going on 7 years now and I love this rack. Many of my buds have purchased these racks as well. I've seen many a Thule/Yak/Saris hitch rack rust and rattle out in a few years or less. This has not happened with the 1Up. I have had to replace some bits, but mostly due to me hitting things. Mike's review is spot on. Certainly not perfect but the best out there. There are some points I'd like to add. The original 1 1/4 rack allowed for 4 bike trays. I've seen this rack and the newer one is actually burlier. I think he bumped it down to 3 supported because there was a lot of flex in the system with 4 bikes and you start pushing the Class1 tongue weight of 200 lbs. With the 2" rack and 4 bikes you still get some flex but it's more reasonable. I've had 4 DH bikes on some gnarly Jeep roads and I was more worried about my Jeep than the rack. One thing the pics don't show is each tray is higher off the ground as you get further out. So your much less likely to bottom the rack out when driving over humps. I cringe every time I see other racks with 4 bikes hit a bump and harshly bottom out the rack. All parts are AL or Stainless steel, including the bolts, this is huge when living in a coastal area that loves to over-salt the roads in the winter, like I do. I leave my rack on year round and after 7 years very little corrosion/wear is showing. You do need to pull the rack out from time to time and grease the ball joint and the sleeve. I have had the rack rust into my car after I left it in for 3 years straight. All parts are also replaceable and listed on their website. So if you back your car into something, like I have a couple of times, you can order the parts for reasonable $ and have it running brandy new. He's also made the rack backwards compatible with older racks so things like FatBike tray arms can be purchased and installed on any version of their rack. Yes, it is very difficult to raise/drop the rack with bikes on it. It's not too bad with 1 or 2 bikes but 4 is kind of crazy. You are talking close to 200 lbs. of rack and bikes your moving and it can be done solo, but not very easily. You do need to check the hitch bolt from time to time. I have had mine loosen up. Other than that the rack rocks!
