They sure provide quality, but 2"is just inherently better. Especially with more weight, higher speeds etc.

Cry once... a 1up rack will last a life time.
I have a 1.25" hitch now and do not want to go to the expense of switching that out now on a 2009 vehicle. I have an old style rack that holds the bicycles by the top tube and seems to do fine(for two), it sways some. I am only usually transporting one bicycle.
