Sitting at a red light at an exit off Hwy 2, and I see this lady coming in hot (about 20mph). I realized she's not paying attention and brace for impact -no brakes, no skids, just full speed into my rear (lol).

I realized the impact wasn't as bad as a normal rear end, but at this point I'm livid, thinking my bike was thrashed (insurance coverage for a bike is a huge pain in the ass).

Anyways, realized there was practically no damage, except to the rack. She paid me in full for a new rack and rear valence piece. Stoked that 1up stocks replaceable parts, so after about $150, it was good as new.

Not sure if other racks would've held up as well, or would've been easier to fix, but 1up is the way to go.





YIKES... And that is EXACTLY the reason I drive around with my 1up on even if I don't have by bike(s) on it!!!

I have a black double and it hasn't not really faded even being out in the SC sun. I've had it for about 4-5 years now.

Glad nothing really happened to you, your bike or your car!

I have a Thule T2 Pro XT2 which I love - secure, strong, drops out of the way of the hatch, etc. It was a tossup between that and the 1UP, though...I'm sure I would have been happy with either.

I have the Kuat. Had a Thule for years. Then I saw how much Kuat does to support races, trail building and festivals.

I have been to a ton of races, events, etc. and have seen 1UP at only ONE.

I'm floored with the support I have seen from Kuat.

If you ride trails, and want to support organizations that provide support to those that build and maintain them, Kuat is a good option.
