We are a small company in Wisconsin that manufactures and sells quality products directly to the customer. At 1up USA, we guarantee everything we sell, and want all of our customers to be completely satisfied.
I bought my 1upUSA trainer about 8 years ago, and have never had a problem with it. Very well made, and very quiet. I can get as hard of a workout using this product as I want. I use it during the winter while watching videos. The resistance on the 7.5lb wheel is amazing.
A neighbor had one of these so I compared the ones at the store with my neighbors and there was really no comparison. I went with the 1up. ALSO.......this trainer WORKS FINE with my 29er! I switch this trainer between 3 bikes....the wife's, my 29er and my road bike. You spend a little more but this trainer seems designed to last and provides good exercise when you cannot get outdoors or you are pressed for time to get a workout in.
Don't waste your money on anything else. As a hobby machinist, this trainer is like something I would build. Total quality, all made in the USA.
Just a quick note on such a great bike rack. Our Heavy Duty Quick Rack not only works great with no wobble in the hitch , but also virtually no movement of the bikes mounted at highway speeds. Quick, easy & secure mounting in a 2" hitch receiver. This rack also looks great mounted either with or without bikes. We are very happy with this rack and have noticed more of the 'other' brands recently that we considered but now know there is no comparison. 1UPUSA's HD QuickRack comes out on top for quality construction, ease of use, support of the bicycles, & looks. Along, with the fast shipping nothing comes close. Yakima - nope. Thule - Not Even close. Kuat - A distant 2nd.
We will be ordering 2 Add-on racks in the future for our kids bikes. My trucks Yakima roof rack mounted bike carriers will weep as they will be stored in the garage now and replaced by the Heavy Duty Quick Rack for all bike carrying from now on!
