Thanks for purchasing the Fork Up by Hurricane Components. This model of Fork Up was designed especially for riders who encounter a clearance problem with the rack tray (the disc brake caliper mount or another reason). You’ll find this patented design easy to use on any fork-mounted rack system. The Fork Up, winner of a “Rave Five-Star Review”* and named “Top 10 Product of 1999”*, is available in seven different models to fit any fork manufactured. If you have any questions about the Fork Up or the contents of this manual, don’t hesitate to contact us. See the back page for phone numbers and email contacts.
Fork Up Installation is a 3-Step Process
Remove Front Wheel – Install Fork Up - Attach to Bike Rack
Note: The optimum position for the Fork Up is to have the Fork Up legs run parallel with the fork legs unless you are running several bikes on your rack and have conflicting handlebar heights; then, the Fork Up can be rotated up to 180°.
Note: Be sure Fork Up, and your bike are mounted securely to your bike rack before driving.
Removing the Fork Up
NOTE: Before riding, be sure to double-check your quick releases, making sure it is securely tightened and that your front brake works properly.
As with all your bicycle rack components, periodically check the Fork Up for any excessive wear, including rust or cracks, and make sure the quick release is working properly. Also, it’s a good idea to ensure the rack you will be installing it on is in good working order.
The Fork Up carries a limited 3-year warranty for defects in material and workmanship. Coverage begins on the user’s date of original purchase. This warranty is limited to the original purchaser. Proof of original purchase is required. This can take the form of a photocopy of the original sales receipt. The warranty does not cover defects arising from misuse, abuse, accidents, alterations, lack of preventative maintenance, or failure to install according to the instructions and proper procedures.
