    I liked my 1up so much, I bought a second one.

    The new one is a single, super duty in black.

    There are some other threads on this with a bunch of suggestions.

    I have a Hollywood racks hitch mount that does 2 bikes with a 2 bike add on. It’s heavy and a little clunky but it’s a great value.

    Also, if just you, you can get your bike in back of Jeep w back seats down.

    Hollywood SR1 or SR2 Tire Mount Bike Rack, had one for years use it 10X's more then my hitch mount...quick easy on easy off easy store...carries two bikes with ease lock them to your tire...

    Open and close tail gate with ease...SR1 is what I have used for years...fantastic rack for quick trips...it also easily fits inside the Jeep rear if you take it off at the car wash, folds flat...

    FWIW, if you're riding a carbon fiber bike, the general consensus is to avoid getting a bike rack which makes contact with the frame. Since I'm riding a carbon fiber mountain bike, I got myself a Kuat Transfer which holds the bike by the tires.

    If money were no object, the 1UP is definitely the way to go. Unfortunately, it's a hard sell for Canadians due to the shipping and exchange rate.

    Another thing to remember about the 1up, if I'm not mistaken, is that it doesn't require a hitch pin. Not a big deal on our jeeps where the hitch is easy access, but if you ever get a car where you put a hidden hitch on, this could be huge. I used to have to lay on the ground and semi crawl under my WRX to get the pin in, and then again to unlock it - had I known I would have bought the 1up!
