Answer: 
More than likely--there is extra rope, that is part of the pulley system. The extra is probably in the 3 lineal foot range, so the person taking the bikes down may need to be 6' (in height) or more.

I think it should work fine. The only modification that might be necessary for higher ceilings would be to lengthen the rope. This could be done by simply tying another length to the end.

Answer: 
This item could work on a 13ft ceiling unfortunately the rope the unit comes standard with only works for a 12ft ceiling you would need to purchase a longer rope. Unfortunately we do not sell longer ropes you would have to find a source. The rope diameter is 5/16, polypropylene jacketed rope with a inner core and then a outer case.

Answer: 
Unless the rims are a graphite or graphite composite, I wouldn't recommend hanging your bike by the rims. The design of the rim with spokes isn't made to support the hanging weight and in most cases will cause the rim to go out-of-round. As with everything, this is your decision.

Answer: 
You could, but the hooks would need to be rotated 90 degrees, for each wheel. To make it more balanced, you may try putting the front hook (of the bike) on one side of the wheel and the back hook, on the other side to balance it a little better.

You could, but the pulley lifters would be twisted, and you might have additional friction during the lift. The binding would also wear the rope out prematurely. I would recommend placing something like a small rod through the tire, between the spokes, and allow the hooks to grab the bar instead of the wheel. That would allow the pulleys to stay in alignment.

Answer: 
You can, but would likely need a bit of modification since the hooks are aligned such that they need to face each other in order to operate properly. If I wanted to do that, I would simple make a couple short lengths of 1 x 2 boards (1 ft each would be plenty) and drill two holes, or cut a couple of notches for the hooks to fit into. To lift the bike, I would lower the hooks below the height of the rim Read More

Answer: 
It may be possible to hang the bike from the wheels depending on the size of the bike rim. If the rim is thin, then you could hook it from the sides of the wheels. If it is a mountain bike, the rim may be to big, so probably not. If you still would like to hang it on the wheels, you'll need to buy some clamps or bungee cords to secure the rim first before hanging it on the hooks.

Hi paint,

Yes, if there's another thing that all bikes have besides a seat and handlebars; it is two wheels!
The hooks on this lift can be manipulated to accommodate the bike by it's wheels. Loosen the hook's bolt and turn it to the side.

1. No. You just pull the rope. It has a brake/binding mechanism that prevents the rope from lowering except when you want it to. Pull the rope forward (away from the bike) to bind...pull it toward the bike to release. My mountain bike is pretty heavy, and it is really easy to lift with this system.
2. Technically, you could mount the hooks adjacent to each other, which would keep them about 6"-9" apart. Read More

This rack does not have a wench type crank. You pull the rope much like raising blinds that shade windows.
The hooks on this lift can be manipulated in several ways to accommodate any bike up to 50 pounds.
This allows you to turn the hooks sideways to grasp the wheels as well as adjusting the width of the track Read More

I have a 9 ft ceiling and It works just fine in the location I put it in. Look at my post picture and notice that it's located along the wall right next to a doorway. Tight squeeze but it works. I guess you'd want to strategically place the bike in an area where you don't have to worry about bumping your head.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 107 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't know what to do with my bike I had the worst time deciding on where to store an expensive bike I purchased when I'm not using it. I live in Brooklyn NY and although we have bike parking stations all over, I didn't want to chance parking the bike on the side walk. The bike has no kick stand as it is a racing bike designed without a kickstand. I located an open area in one of the rooms of the apartment I live in and decided it would be a perfect location to mount the bike. The ceiling mount bike lift is exactly what was needed to do so. It was very easy to mount the two holsters, and run the cable that came with it. Once completed, the bike was very easy to lift and actually displays like a peace of art. I like the fact that the mount easily positions the bike and allows you to hoist the bike and position how high depending on where you decide to pull the cord left or right. July 26, 2016
