First Look: 1up USA- Double Bicycle Quik Rack

1up USA, nice rack.

I’ve been saying that every time I see the thing on the back of the truck.  After the love faded for my Thule Apex rack (which happened rather quickly,) I was on the lookout for a better option to carry bikes- especially these new beasts that have been welcomed into the family, with 4 and 5 inch tires, respectively.  I came across 1up USA and reached out to them.  We set up some product for review and SHAZAM! We’ve got a slick new system to carry 2 of our bikes handily.

Some highlights on the Double Quik Rack

  • Made in the USofA!
  • Built heavier duty- using a 2″ reciever.
  • Has add-ons available to carry up to 4 bikes
  • Anti-theft hitch lock that tightens to eliminate vibration and bouncing (better for offroad use)
  • Rated for bikes up to 75lbs each
  • A work of art

It came (nearly) fully assembled, and was a breeze to put on the truck.  I promptly put my Fatback up and was super impressed with how easily it was secured.  That with 4.8″ tires and 82mm rims.

So there you have it.  I’ll be putting this through the paces for a while- stay tuned for a proper review and the long term test.  I’m really impressed so far- it looks like this is going to be a great rack for this climate and the bumpy roads that rural Alaska has to offer.
