    No to the Trek, they went full SJW refusing to sell bikes to the Police. Can’t support them. Getting a deal on three Pedego bikes, and they have a five year warranty.
    Thanks for the replies, like the 1UP rack. The Kuat is really nice too.

    One up is made in the USA and will nor rust like the Kuat. Absolutely no comparison. 1UP is the one I have.

    One thing the Kuat has, as you can see in that picture, is a swing up arm so you can hang a bike and work on it in the field if needed and you are so inclined. Friend of mine has it. it's a nice rack, but not nearly as solid as the 1UP and the hardware does rust.

    I’ve owned a Kuat for 7 years. No rust issue here. Been the best bike rack I’ve ever owned. It’s been exposed to rain and snow storms a lot. My FIL uses a 1UP rack for their electric bikes. I haven’t been impressed with it but I might be bit biased since he’s my father in law!

    Hitch-mount Kuat is great. Top build quality and ease of use.

    Kuat 2.0 for my two 50lb ebikes. It holds them well and can be folded up while you are riding around for the day. As others have said, you can also easily work on your bikes when needed.

    I have not had any rust issues with mine.

    I have the older version of the Thule and it has been great. You can buy a two bike extension for it and carry four bikes at once if you want. It's a bit unwieldy as a 4 bike rack but not impossible to handle.
