    OneUp or WAO? So many ones.
    OneUp has a pretty sweet sale happening.

    Edit: ahhhhh, 1Up racks, not OneUp components.

    Domestic production likely means they arenít sitting on a bunch of crap they over-ordered from Asian factories 2 years ago. Thatís pretty sweet actually, but sorry you canít grab a deal.

    Half mast looks less than awesome though. Like walking around with you fly open.

    Iím thinking about grinding a little seat between the two notches. Thereís not enough metal in there to do a full proper notch like the original ones, so it might not hold.

    Ideal angle (tailgate just barely clears)

    Iíve thought about cutting a slight notch just past the full upright. My wifeís Tiguan only needs the rack tilted back a couple degrees for the hatch to open.

    Usually I just drive around with it not engaged in a notch and it never moves (worst case, it would make its way into the notch) but a little detent would be nice just so I know it is actually far enough back to clear the hatch.

    I imagine you wouldn't need much of a detent. Couldn't you use the "screw" that holds the locking bar in place to make sure it stays firmly in the detent?

    They never have sales, unfortunately. Even their industry "pro deals" are pretty miniscule.

    Wonít simply sliding the hitch out of the receiver a bit give you the clearance? Iíve had good luck over the years doing that for various vehicles. An extender is another option.

    This year, I added the rackattack to the mix which is great for traveling, especially w/ebikes. I added a sheet metal shim on the underside to reduce movement. That might also be helpful if you can get clearance moving the rack or an extender.

    I bought mine years ago before Christmas and got a 1up tee shirt for free!
    I don't mind paying full price for that rack. It hasn't come off my car except for when I've bought a new car and it's been bomber.

    This is how far out it needs to be for the tailgate to clear in the fully upright position. Not gonna work for me. Iíd rather it be more solid since Iím either hauling DH bikes or e-bikes. And being solid as a fucking rock is one of the hallmarks of a 1up rack.

    You might at least try an extender before cannibalizing the holder.

    Maybe see if they will make one?
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    The current Super Duty and Heavy Duty shank assembly now both have a grooved shank that supports a locking hitch pin, so you no longer have to use the super old school velcro backup strap. Youíd be surprised how far you can pull the shank back with the hitch pin engaged. I wouldnít haul 4 bikes with the shank locked in the most outward position, but 2 DH or eBikes might not be an issue.

    So if you really wanted to go nuts, you could buy yourself a new shank assembly, back it out and try it, if that doesnít work you can notch out the side supports of your old shank assembly, and if that somehow fucks anything up you can revert to the new side supports.

    Which wheelset did your Knolly come with? Website says either Spank or a Race Face Aeffect.

    I'm trying to figure out a nagging fit issue I'm having between two bikes. Whats the cheapest path to being able to support a bike with 29x2.4" tires/boost axles in a way that I can record myself pedaling? I was initially looking at basic trainers on craigslist but a lot of them say they only fit 29x1.5" or less. Not really interested in using the trainer as anything but a support stand.

    In theory, you should be able to get any old turbo trainer and remove your 2.4 tire. No need for the tire to contact the fluid roller/drum since you don't need the workout. Surely someone local has one for you to borrow.

    Rollers could work too. Theyíre a bit tricky at first, more so with a fatter tire, but doable. Youíd for sure need a tripod or a second party to film. A wheel-off trainer would work fine too, just have to make sure you can level the bike. Youíd have to that with a drum/fluid trainer too.

    Where are you located? Iíve got all three options in the garage.
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow, and flying through the air

    Like others said, you could just take the tire off. But remember you'll probably need a thru axle adaptor to get the bike to fit in a cheap trainer.

    Dunno didnít ask. Hoping RF because I donít know anything about the Spank ones, but figured for the price I wonít complain. Likely going to lace up something nicer anyways if I decide I like the bike.

    Racefaces wheels are garbage (well the hubs mostly), better hope it's the spanks. Can't even count how many raceface hubs we've warrantied in the shop.

    If you're near Boulder I have a Feedback Omnium Trainer you can borrow.

    Shockwiz? Worth owning for the many mountain bikes I have. Always relied on bracketing, but riding with some really fast enduro racers these days and think I need to start fiddling w/ marginal gains. On sale now and was going to throw on wife's x-mas list for me...

    No, it's junk. Do some research on what setting does what, get a small notebook to record your settings, and keep doing bracketing.
