    I always wear my side knobs out first, they are a softer compound and start to get squirmy in corners. So once they start rolling I usually replace.

    I don't think you'll ever find a negative review for 1up racks -- especially around here.

    I love mine. It's simple, trustworthy, and built solid. The company is good for their word and stand behind their product. Zero complaints.

    I bought the single bike hitch rack with an extension kit and a roof rack. This allows me to move the second tray (roof rack) back and forth between my bed and the hitch, as needed.

    As you may have discovered, the "flush kit" bolts and t-nuts from 1up do not work with 80/20 bars. To solve that problem, I used 1up's standard mounting bar and the following hardware to achieve the same flush goodness:

    From Home Depot:
    (4) 5/16-18 zinc bolts, 7/8" length
    (4) 5/16" flat washers

    Combined with these specific t-nut inserts from Amazon:

    Boom! Too easy.

    See now I’m a bit more of a believer. My kids bikes are getting too big to just throw in the back of my truck. I was looking for an option to carry four bikes but I didn’t want the limo effect of having four bikes on the rear at all times. Having the ability to flip flop between roof mounted and to add it on the hitch would be awesome.

    That's the standard mount you say? Looks like the flush mount would work but replace the provided hardware with what you listed?

    Both 2”. Haven’t had the HD to compare, but the SD is rated for higher capacity, meaning a more stout build. Should mean less wiggle.

    And I was talking about the ez pull handle. The rack should come with it, but doesn’t.

    There’s two of them back there. Both over 6’. I’m just 5’8”, so I look like a dwarf riding next to those Sasquatches.

    You're correct about simply replacing the provided hardware with the flush mount kit. That's the kit I ordered and exactly what I did.

    It's pretty easy to switch it back and forth from the hitch and roof. Maybe 10 minutes tops. Just make sure you order the correct list of parts (such as standard vs. flush mount for the roof rack).

    With four bikes, I guess you would order whatever combo you need for hitch + roof preferences. Perhaps a Double hitch + 2 Add-on Frames + 2 Roof Racks, or something similar?

    Here's my order list:

    If you’re going to put them on the roof you need to be 1) pretty tall if you are lifted, 2) have some sliders or steps.

    Treated myself to some much needed upgrades. This is my first bike a 2019 stumpy st al I’ve been riding for almost 2 years now. Found a new take off fox factory 36 and evol dps for a steal off Pinkbike and couldn’t help myself. Such a big difference.48404824-72E1-4254-A30B-DBE2E66A510D.jpg

    Forgive my ignorance but couldn’t you just buy an Add-on rack and just buy the flush mount kit separately? Is there any difference between the Add-on and the roof rack minus the hardware.

    The add on is broken into two pieces, the roof trays are a solid piece the full length. At least that's how mine are.

    Ended up hitting Shindagin Hollow State Forest in the way up to Watkins Glen. If your ever in that area I highly recommend checking it out! Had a lot of fun features and it definitely gets taken care of. Gonna try and hit Erwin before I leave.

    I like the Mojo. If I were shopping bikes right now, the 130mm rear travel version would be on my short list. Of course the types of trails that you want to ride may make it a good or bad choice. The different Mojo models have different front/rear travel amounts, so there are different options there for various riding styles and terrain. IMO, for an all around bike the 130mm Mojo would be a better option than the 140mm or larger versions.

    Similarly, the Bronson is a lot of bike and probably not what you want for an all around bike. There was some Bronson talk in this thread recently, I think in the past week or so if you search for it.

    General info should anyone be looking for it in the future. Cane Creek calls out Slick Honey as the suggested grease for spring swaps and maintenance on their coil forks.

    They did state that most any brand grease would likely work, but that’s what they build with and what they’d suggest for users.

    For you guys with tailgate pads, do you take it off and put in the cab while you're riding so it doesn't get stolen? I'm currently using a fork mount and am getting tired of taking my wheel off and putting it back all the time so thinking about other options.
