Video Transcript for SportRack Upshift 2 Bike Rack Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the SportRack Upshift 2 Roof-Mounted 2-Bike Rack, part number SR4883RP, also available in a single bike, part number SR4883. This frame-mounted bike rack is going to allow us to carry 2 bikes safely and securely while we're on our trip. It will fit round, square, elliptical, and arrow, and most factory roof-rack systems. It also features 2 adjustable arms that come up and grab our bike's downtube and lock it securely with these hand knobs. When they're not in use, they fold down for storage. It also includes these locking hand knobs. When we get them all tightened up, for extra security, we can lock them, and they're just at a free spinning state when they're locked, so they will not come undone.

It includes sliding-wheel-cradle straps that when slid underneath the tire, the strap comes up and through the spokes, and tighten that down with a nice buckle. It's made out of a solid-steel construction with a nice black-powder-coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It has a weight capacity of 45 pounds per bike and also features a limited lifetime warranty. Another great thing about this roof-mounted bike rack is the spacing between the 2 bikes, so if you're looking up at our handle bars, you'll notice they're not coming in contact with another. The universal clamp-on mounting hardware attaches to most load bars. The overall dimensions of this roof-mounted bike rack are 57-1/2 long, 28-3/4 wide, by 25 inches tall. Now that we've gone over some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to install it.

The first thing we'll need to do is we need to set it on our roof rack. We'll just slide it over. Now, since it's a 2-bike rack, we want to make sure and center it up with the top of our vehicle. That way, we can get to it from both sides. All right, now, the next thing we'll need to do, now that we've got it up there, is we need to get our clamps around our load bars. I've left them together, but we'll only need to remove one side of the bolt in order to get our clamp around, and I'll show you how that's done there.

I'm just pulling that out of the way, moving the clamp around, then setting it back down, and then bringing the clamp underneath. Then I'm going to replace that bolt. All right, and before I tighten that down, I'm going to repeat that same step on the other three sides. Once we've got all our clamps around our load bars, then we can take our included Allen key and tighten them evenly around. We'll tighten it up on this side a little bit. Then we'll come back to the back side.

You want a nice snug fit around the bars. All right, once we get this tightened up, we'll go around to the other three clamps and tighten those down, as well. Now that we've got those tightened down, let's go ahead and throw a bike up there. Now, we'll need to make sure that our strap is slid all the way forward and undone. Same with back here, make sure the slider is all the way back. Undo the strap. Then for our clamp, we'll make sure that this unscrewed and ready to receive the frame of our bike. We'll grab the bike, set it in the bike rack. Then we'll raise up our frame hook and set it right about that position. Once we get in this position, we'll just go ahead and tighten it down. Once we have it nice and tight, we'll be able to let go of our bike and then do our straps. All right, that looks pretty good. You can see the bike is nice and tight to our bike rack. Then we'll come over to our front-wheel strap. We'll slide the slider so it's just underneath the tire. We'll bring our strap through between our spokes, up through the buckle, and then back down through, and pull that nice and tight. Let's go ahead and do that same thing for our rear wheel. All right, now that we have one bike up there, let's go ahead and throw another one on the other side. Now that we've got both bikes securely up here, let's go ahead and take it out and see how it performs on our test course. First, let's go into our slalom. This is going to show side-to-side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over uneven pavement or potholes. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to simulate pulling in and out of a driveway or going over speed bumps. That's going to do it for our look at the SportRack Upshift 2 Roof-Mounted Bike Rack for 2 Bikes, part number SR4883RP. .

The bike rack was packed well and shipped quickly , the product description was good , it holds my 27.5 full suspension MTB securely however the jaws that clamp around your frame may scratch it this can be remedied with an old inner tube glued to or wrapped around the jaws . Hope this review was helpful 283679

Received the package in good condition. Inside were the two roof racks ordered inside of their original packaging. These roof racks require assembly...not too difficult if you have any knowledge at all of what a wrench and screwdriver are. The only thing I would have appreciated was having the head of the bolts that hold the tracks together not be a screw head, i.e. not require the use of a screwdriver, a wrench would have worked better. I believe the directions were prepared by someone that does not have English as a first language. The parts list said I should have more parts than were included and/or actually required. Approximately 10 minutes to assemble and a couple more minutes to install on the roof rack. The straps that are used on the front and rear tire when the bike is loaded do not cinch and hold....the only item I really don't care for on this product so far. Bikes are loaded for the maiden voyage to the bike trails........ And we're back......bikes made it to the trail and back home without falling off....racks worked well. One thing that was noted is that were our vehicle taller, or I shorter, a stool or step would be required to load and off load the bikes. Overall I am happy with the product for the price paid. 285031

Still working good. I replaced the straps that are used on the tires when the bikes are loaded. For the money these racks are a good buy.

Good quality, fair price. Is a little difficult mounting the bike but with practice and a step stool you'll get it. 601341

Although the hardware to mount these two Bike Racks was provided for use on a vehicle's existing roof rack system, I mounted the base units on a cargo container attached to the rear of my RV. The Stow-Away container I have is mounted on a Swing-A-Way frame, so it can be swung out perpendicular to the rear of the van. This gives me easy access to the bike in the rack closest to the rear wall of the RV. Yes I have to remove the bikes if I want to open the cargo container, but otherwise great way to carry my two bikes on the rear of the RV. I also have a locking cable attached to the container so I can further secure the bikes while in transit; although the locking knobs on the bike racks works as advertised, and would deter most potential thieves. 158012

Hi! Just got it, and have not even yet assembled it, so I would be premature to give you any feedback, other than to say the delivery was fast, and it appears to be an excellent unit. Will give you additional feedback as it becomes available. 382267

Its NOT!!! Its not that its a BAD product, its that it did not fit my rental car, and its just sitting now in my garage, unused/useable. I wish someone could tell exactly what cars it does fit so I can try and rent one of those. My ENTIRE bike trip was shut down because i could not transport bikes...

Thanks for the follow up Sandra, this bike rack is designed to fit vehicles with a crossbar system, either OEM or an aftermarket roof rack with crossbars. This bike rack will work with crossbars that are round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars and up to a maximum width of 3-1/2 inches. I have included a help article that provides additional information about roof rack bike carriers for your reference. I hope this information helps. If you would like to send me your vehicle information I could definitely look into what roof rack options we offer for your vehicle.

Price vs quality gets four stars. I'm not giving five due to the locking knob not working initially and having to disassemble it to get it functioning. Also the mounting instructions leave something to be desired and the video shows a somewhat different mounting system than what the unit actually uses. I only have need for a rack on the occasional side so this one works well for me. If I had a more frequent need and/or longer distance hauls than I use I would probably spring for a more costly unit but if your needs are in line with mine then this unit will probably serve your needs at a fair price. 723272

Its pretty sturdy, and it fits my bike well. The one thing is the locking knob, if locked or unloked the knob can be opened. I tried it with no pressure applied to it since I wanted to leave it in the locked position while not in use. Ill try it with the bike mounted next. But overall I like it. 712016

This rack is functional, but not designed so well. The portion that holds the bike at the frame is clumsy and not easy to use. Overall the rack serves the purpose... I only use a few times a year for travel. I would recommend an upgrade if you need a rack for daily use. 619218

We put three of these on the stock roof rack on a Chrysler Pacifica. Three only issue is reaching high enough to put the bikes on and off. We cut a piece of plywood to fit in the open side door and put the other end on a big cooler. Stand on the platform and it's easy to deal with the bikes. They traveled fine, 4 hours at 65mph. Drove around the beach for weeks with the empty racks on the van. No rust or issues from the salt spray. Will use again this summer vacation. 516605

Gets the job done. But mine came with a none working locking knob (called and they sent me a new bike mount). As many stated before the rear end cap fell off the second day and since this cap limits the travel of the wheel stopers/straps it fell off as well. 515839

These are the bike racks for the roof rack on my pop-up trailer. If it was going to live on my car for everyday use, I would go with something a bit nicer, but they do the trick, and the price was right. I've never worried about stability, and I've been able to get my 29er and my 5 year old's bmx bike on the rack with no issues. (They work on all sizes) lock isn't great, but but I cable lock the bike to the rail if leaving it at work or something. 492353

Have only used these once last year for an epic road trip Colorado to Moab UT. We rented mountain bikes and took them to different trails. We had 4 adult bikes on the hitch rack and these two bike racks with 2 kids bikes on the factory roof crossbars of my '14 Dodge Durango (6 bikes total). They performed flawlessly. I was pretty nervous as these were some expensive bike rentals but they stayed sturdy. I would have given a 5 rating but there are a lot of little bolts and nuts to assemble and de-assemble that takes time. They performed as needed but I still prefer hitch bike racks for ease of loading and unloading. I'm old and short with a tall SUV... 392974

Currently testing it out for its first run. Already had the rear end cap fall off while driving. The wheel stoppers slide which is necessary for adjusting to your wheels, however, if the bike starts pushing backwards (like while driving), the wheel stoppers slide with it. Wish the straps that hold the wheels were more secure but just a little wiggling and tugging from bike and they loosen while driving. Its not a bad looking rack and with some minor adjustments (superglue the end caps) and maybe getting velcro reinforcement straps for the wheels would help ensure that your bike isn't going anywhere. 289565

Product is priced well and built fairly well , but the instructions really suck! All you get are illustrated installation drawings that aren't completely clear and have errors. Worse, the wheel retention straps are worthless, i.e. no teeth to grip and tighten down. I used some Velcro straps I had on hand which work better. 282630



- SR4883
by:

While I've only used this with my bike for about 100 miles it has worked well and I haven't had any issues, even when traveling 70 mph on the highway. The instructions are only pictures and can be a little difficult to decipher but not too bad. While I feel that a trailer hitch- or spare tire-mounted rack is more secure I've been pleasantly surprised with this rack. A good option for my 2014 Nissan Rouge Select since I couldn't get a trunk-mounted rack because of the spolier. This was also a cheaper option than installing a trailer hitch and then buying a hitch-mounted rack. 281015



- SR4883
by:

This bike rack is pretty good. It's easy to use. Installation was super easy, but best to install it in the shade as the sun really heats this rack up. The only complaint I have is that the end caps and the ties for the wheels have come loose when we didn't have a bike on the rack and we lost one of the end caps and the tie down. 279771

    I am familiar with that type of trailer. We have one, the Yakima Rack and Roll, # Y08107, with 78 inch crossbars so it will be similar to your Space Trailer. On the 80 inch bars on your trailer you will be able to mount up to 7 bikes so your 4 bikes and accessories will fit. But In order to make sure everything fits I recommend using the single bike carriers rather than the double. Using all single bike carriers allows you to place the bikes closer together if needed.

Simply alternate which direction your bikes are facing and they should fit.

  • Are Tools Needed to Assemble the SportRack Upshift Roof Bike Rack # SR4883
    I see where there is some confusion because the instructions don't exactly call for tools when assembling the SportRack Upshift Roof Bike Rack # SR4883. When I spoke with my contact at SportRack she said that the picture saying "Tighten Well" means that you need to use hand tools but not power tools (like a power drill). You definitely don't want any movement after assembling the bike rack!

  • Is SportRack Upshift Bike Rack # SR4883 a Single or Double Bike Rack
    The Sportrack Upshift part # SR4883 that you referenced is a single bike rack which is designed to carry just one bike. The review video covers more of the double version of this rack SR4883RP which is no longer available which I believe is why you asked this. So if you order the # SR4883 you'll get the single bike version.

    Both trailer hitch manufacturers and bike rack manufacturers agree that you can only carry 2 bikes maximum on a Class I trailer hitch. The issue isn't the weight of the bikes, it is how far that weight is from the trailer hitch receiver. The more weight placed further away from the receiver, the more leverage it produces and it can damage the hitch and the vehicle. To carry more than 2 bikes you would need to also use a roof rack.
