    1up Heavy Duty, Super Heavy Duty or Equip - D

    It's time to pull the trigger on a 1up. It will be a four bike/ 2" set up. Any wisdom from the collective on which one. Road, Trail and DH bikes, but nothing in the plus or full fat range. I'm thinking Super Heavy Duty because they aren't that much more, and the Equip D are pretty FKN spendy.

    What says the all knowing sprocket rocket collective.

    I used the 4-bike heavy duty version on some of the roughest roads in the southwest, and never had a problem. If it's marginally more, go for the "super HD" version, but I'm not sure it's really necessary.

    1up Heavy Duty, Super Heavy Duty or Equip - D

    I have the standard one. I couldn’t think of a reason to buy a more burly one, they are pretty stout for a trailer hitch rack (considering the competition)

    Edit to add: the only way these racks fail is if it gets hit by another vehicle. In that case the burly ones probably won’t make a difference...

    As a past owner, I'll add that resale is really easy if you are near a metro area. Treat yo' self!

    Pretty classic goldilocks pricing, 1up wants you to buy the super duty, be a rebel!

    Road bikes?

    Why are you trying to get yourself run over?
