Saris Cycle-On Pro for sale. Fits 2" hitches only; holds 1 or 2 bikes.
  • Review here: https://www.singletracks.com/mtb-gear/saris-cycleon-pro-bike-carrier-review/
  • Owner's manual attached to this post.
  • Rated for 2 bikes at up to 60 lbs each.
  • Supports bikes with 20" to 29" wheels.
  • Does not contact the frame in any way - the front arm locks angularly as well as radially so it doesn't need to press against the front fork like some other racks of this design.
  • Tire width: Saris doesn't have a spec for this, but our previous 2.6" tires fit just dandy. We've been using it with our current 27.5" x 3.0" tires, but I wouldn't recommend that to others. See pictures.
  • The rear hold-downs are surprisingly strong and we haven't had problems there even with our 3" tires when driving at freeway speeds or (slower) on dirt roads.
  • Includes a locking hitch pin (rack has knob to turn to eliminate play) and a locking cable (keyed alike) that snakes through the bikes and the rack.
  • Rack folds up pretty easily and as good clearance from the back of the vehicle in both operational and folded positions, as you can see in the photos.
  • Note that if you have big fenders on the front wheel, this rack won't work for you. Rear fenders are not a problem. We got away with the smallish fenders on Rad Power's "City" bikes.
  • Rack is in very good shape, stored indoors when not in use. The hitch play tightening knob is scuffed up a bit from using a wrench to tighten it fully, but not too bad.
Reason I'm selling: With our both our bike's now having wide Boost spacing in the rear, the second bike's rear frame just barely contacts the arm holding down the front tire of the first bike being carried. This wasn't a problem with our previous e-Bikes (Rad Power), and it's not an issue if you're only using it to carry one bike at a time. I've been using rubber/foam cushions but between being over on the tire width and now the hassle of placing pads each time, I've decided to get an expensive 1Up rack.

Asking $140, assuming we can meet up in the South Bay.
EDIT: Wife wants the rack gone, so I'm lowering the price to $100 OBO
