Bike Rack Solution
« on: May 06, 2018, 05:03:41 PM »
Occasionally, members post asking for bike rack options and solutions. Here is something I finished up last month. I borrowed this idea from a member on another user group and modified it to accomodate two bikes.

The racks are 1UP USA roof racks. Not the cheapest option, but well worth every penny. The racks are milled aluminum and made in the USA. The rack's only contact point with the bike is on the tires. (Long term friction rub is a concern, especially with carbon fiber bikes.) I've been using one of their hitch mounted racks practically year round (NE winters...) for over 5 years and have had zero issues.

The mounting bracket were from McMaster-Carr.

Thanks!  I am a new member and this is one of my first problems to solve.  Do you have a link to the McMaster Carr mounting bracket?
