Coming late next spring is an update to Inno Racks’ Tire Hold upright, tray-style hitch mount bike rack. Available in 1-, 2- and 4-bike configurations, it gets easier adjustments to fit all those bikes next to each other…and plus sized MTB tires.

The Tire Hold rack is designed to sandwich your bike into place touching only the tires. We reviewed it a while back and liked how simple it was to get the bikes on without anything touching the frame, rotors or rims.

For 2018, it gets an easier release handle located at the back of the spine, especially helpful as you add more bikes and trays to the 2″-only hitch mount. The trays themselves get new quick-release adjustments to slide left or right, preventing those odd handlebar-to-saddle interactions that keep your bikes from playing nice together. Even the hoop on the top of the arms is easier to move up or down, making it much quicker to adjust for wheel and tire size (from kids bikes to 29+) than before.

Retail is $299 for a single bike, $499 for the two-bike, and $399 for the extra 2-bike add-on. Includes cable, lock and keys. Look for it in May 2018.

…or with their adapters, which can also be used to mount cross-bar attachment points. Depending on which brand truck you have, you may or may not need the adapters. More details to come later on these, they’re a work in progress.

The truck bed rack is nifty, but not novel. I’ve had 2 sets of these for ~8 years: http://www.recrac.com/

I have had these bed clamps that look exactly the same on my truck for about 6 months so far and they work much better than they look

So they invented the OneUp racks that have existed for years? Nice innovation. Can’t wait till the cease-and-desist comes through.

Well, the 1up design expired, causing a rift in the company. Now there are competing racks from both 1up and quickrack. Not unexpected that someone else would lift the design once the design was free to use.

Inno already had a previous version (INH-305) similar to the 1UP that was released a few years ago. The one shown here is the updated new version by Inno. I don’t think 1UP has design ownership of the tire attachment style of rack. This one looks pretty good.

I have INH-305 earlier iteration of this rack with lockable arms making it pretty secure way to lock bike up and loving it. Do the new iteration have proper locking mechanism like that? One reservation I had about 1UP was the lack of locking of bike

Yeah wow, 1up’s are the greatest rack I’ve ever owned. Cannot believe they let that go.

Any updates on possible release date? I’m interested in getting the single bike tire hold.
