Dickeyville, Wisconsin’s iconic, American-made bike rack manufacturer, 1UP USA has announced some new ways to solve your storage needs. One of the things that make 1UP USA so unique is the modularity of its products, making modifying and adding additional trays simple.

That modularity extends to 1UP’s storage systems as well, allowing the user to modify and adjust the system to meet their exact needs. I’ve personally used their Rack Stash before, and it’s a simple and neat way to store your hitch rack when not on your vehicle.

Let’s take a look at what 1UP is calling its “smartest storage solutions” with some new additions to the Rack Stash line…

1UP RS Slide

Retail: $189 – $304

The RS Slide is available in two different configurations, just the “Slide” or the “Slide + Wall Mount Assembly. It looks like a sensible, practical way to free up space in tight areas. The two different options will make it easy to hang your bikes out of the way of the day-to-day activities that happen in any given storage area.

1UP Rack Stash

Let’s take a look at the simple and useful Rack Stash. The Rack Stash isn’t a new item, but it’s a neat lil’ hitch rack storage solution that makes sense. It can work with most 1.25″ or 2″ hitch racks as well, not just 1UP’s racks.

1UP Rack Stand

Next on the list is the Rack Stand. This looks like an easy way to move any one of 1UP’s racks from the car to the garage and vice versa. Just remove the rack from the vehicle, slide it into the Rack stand, tilt it, and roll it to its storage spot.

The Rack stand comes with the stand and instructions.

Rack Stand Specs

1UP RS Add-On Holder

Helping to keep your storage area’s floor clutter-free, the Add-On Holder will get your multi-bike, add-on trays off of the ground and stored safely out of the way.

The Holder comes with the hardware for mounting it to a wood-constructed wall, and instructions to guide you in the process.

It’s also powder-coated and quite handsome. A perfect spot to hang your helmet, store your shoes, gloves, bottles, and sunglasses.

It comes with all of the hardware needed to install onto a wood-constructed wall and instructions telling you how to do that.

Another bicycling company selling Unistrut at a ridiculous mark up. The rack storage looks quite nice.

I really hope that they paid the inventor of the “bike curtain”, Joy of Bike (https://youtu.be/_deob4L4AEY) and not just copied it blatantly.
It’s a fantastic design btw, I have been using mine over a year now.

Both of these just look like powder coated 1 5/8” Unistrut and some trolley wheels with j hooks attached. I could build this for probably less than $100. There’s another company out of the UK that also makes this same scam.

The 1UP product is Unistrut. No sense in redesigning something that already works, right? You can definitely DIY this for around $100, but for those folks that don’t want to figure out all the parts and just want a product that’s ready to install, 1UP offers the base unit for $189. That seems pretty reasonable!

1UP actually launched this years ago and before that video was published.
