I returned that rack because it wouldn't work with our ebikes. We have a Thule now, so much better...

I just noticed this. Pretty funny. I think it looks great. Also nice to remind the Yota's behind you on the trail where they belong ;)

Hey chicken, did you get a new PC, building? Maybe start a thread in the general section or if you are building check out PCPP.com
my setup is here:
or here if that link does not work because I just updated and it's pending approval. Previous version was a feature!

No build, just the desk setup.

I actually havnt had a tower for.. idk like 10 years hahah. Been basically strictly laptops. Since working in IT, I dont mess around too much at home in my freetime anymore. Laptop has just been way more convenient for the basic stuff im doing at home. Ive got my home NAS running Plex, probably the most nerdy stuff Ive got going on with personal hardware lol.

Well not specifically for the Trek, but kinda - kinda not..

We have an inflatable SUP board. I wanted it off the ground so it's not in the way. It's a 50+ lbs bag. I threw a pulley up in the rafters, and it worked... but its still pulling up 50+lbs and for sure needed gloves on while pulling the rope. Decided to put in a double snatch block system. So now it's like ~13lbs of force to pull it up.

so much easier to pull it up now, can do it with one hand and without the need for gloves.

Also made a mounting solution for the 1UP bike rack. Bought a trailer hitch for a trailer, and installed it in the rafters as well.

Now just have get a step stool and install (or remove) the hitch pin that holds it in place (same one I use to lock it to the Trek receiver).

Nice rig, I love my 1up Equip-D. It's a nice upgrade from my original ten year old 1up rack.

Interesting setup with the rafter mount. So you have to climb up there and it hangs by the lock?

Thanks!
Yup, it just hangs from the receiver pin lock. It also has a bolt on the front of it so i could tighten the hitch up in there so it doesnt wobble around.
The rafters are only 8ft 3in off the ground, so i just get a step stool out and I can easily store it away or remove it.

Got it, couldn't tell how high up the rack hanger sits.

I've been thinking of doing a wall mount for my rack, but it's on the car most of the time.

I returned the 1UP because I couldn't get the arms to lock onto the back wheel with the integrated carrier on our ebikes. Got a Thule and it packs up very small so I can stick it in a closet.

Only light weight stuff, pillows, blankets, sweatshirts, etc. Since the rain is setting in, i put an extra sweatshirt and waterproof wind breaker up there.

Got it, makes sense. My back seat gets kinda full with my mountain biking gear. Towel for post ride wipe off/seat cover, windbreaker, sweater, etc.
