At the Sea Otter Classic last month we introduced our redesigned hitch-mounted bike rack, the HoldUp. Summer and Kara walked through the features of the HoldUp for our friends over at MTBR. These features include a 4-bike capacity when used with the HoldUp Plus 2, a new StrongArm ratcheting system allowing for compatibility with 20-29 inch wheels, integrated cable lock, and of course an integrated bottle opener. Check out Summer and Kara’s video below.
Of course, the best way to showcase a new product is with a road trip. Moab, Utah, is the long-standing mecca of mountain biking and begs to be a road trip destination. It has all of the ingredients from the red rock, endless miles of BLM land, mountain biking trails, and of course friends. Lots of friends.
Porcupine Rim, Jackson Trail, pre-riding the Mag 7 Enduro, birthdays, and camp fires were added to the trip. Adding the HoldUp Plus 2 allowed us to take the entire crew including our best friend with us, even if he was caught laying around on the job.
Get out there and ride, take a rack, and take more friends.
