From what I understand, the 1UP rack is the original design of the dude that is Quik Rack, and the patent recently expired-- so the Quik Rack Mach 2 is an improved version of the 1UP/Quik Rack, which were basically the same thing.

I'm the guy that starts and finishes 95% of rides in his own driveway, so the notion of a $750 bike rack is still mind boggling. That said, the Mach 2 looks exceptionally well built.

Thought I'd visit the 1-up website.. Looks like they got out of the trainer business? I have one of their trainers (great piece of equipment) stuffed in a closet somewhere that I bought about 15 yrs ago.

What it is is vaporware. It has some nice improvements but its been over 2 years since it was "going into production".
