1up USA. If your car is low, the 2 bike rack may be too low though. I use a 1 bike 1up on my Mustang and I have to be careful about dips into and out of parking lots. I liked having it on the roof of my last car much better.

We have a KŁat and we've liked it, we can load everything from our Pugsleys (4 in tires) to our road bikes (23 mm tires)

But after 5 years we're having to replace parts because of rust. 1UP will be my pick when I need to replace this one.

I guessing a e-fatbike ... even the target/walmart fatbikes are lighter than 68 lbs.

You could recommend a roof-rack... forcing the e-biker to work out. At least at the beginning and the end of the ride :-)
