Fixing to order my 1UPUSA bike rack

For those of you who have the 1UPUSA bike rack, I'm wondering if you had to order an extender or anything of that sort to clear the spare tire?

I'll be towing two bikes on the back of our 19. So I'm ordering the 2 inch heavy duty double rack. And since my bike has fenders on both wheels, I'll be ordering 2 fender cushions.

Anything else I need?

Our 1UP fits great on our 17B without any extension. Not sure if spacing is same same on a 19 but they look the same with my eyeball ruler.

I have the 1UP on my 5.0 TA, no extenders and the bike easily clears the spare tire. Its a great bike rack.

Wish I could have got one of the 1ups but I contacted the company and it won't really work if you have any kind of racks, which we use for our bike bags, which for us is a must have.....too bad.

There are lots of quick release rear racks for bikes if you wish to have one.

This is the only one I know of that is a good one, I am sure there are lots of others. Nice to be able to take the weight off when not needed too.

I think this is bike dependent, because we carry two Kona Ute cargo bikes on our 1UP rack, both of which sport huge cargo deck racks. Would attach pic if bikes on rack but don't have easy access to such right now. These is a stock pick of a Ute:



Note, I had to crop our rear fenders to work with the 1UP. Fender still covers front half of rear tire.

I ordered two protective foam rollers for my one bike that has fenders on front and back. Was that not an option when you got yours?

And I was told yesterday that our 1Up should go out today and be delivered by Friday...pretty excited to try it out.
