Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Searched the forums and found neither hide nor hare about the 1upusa ultra hitch mount rack.



Wondering why that is:

1) Too expensive?
2) Too radical in design?
3) Not available at your LBS?

I suspect #3 is the main reason. Still, good new travels fast on the web.

I just ordered one. Figured.. what the heck... they have a 60 day no questions asked full refund policy that includes the cost of return freight.

Opinions welcome...

I have a 1upUSA trainer I purchased last fall. Something went wrong with it (bearings, I believe). I sent it back, they fixed it, and I had it within the week. No problems since. Great company, here in WI. Rack looks like the high quality mahchined aluminum I see in my trainer. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with this company again.

Thanks for the plug. I understand their trainers are well regarded. This rack also has some pretty good reviews over on mtbr.com. Really surprised me when I could find no mention of it over here.
