It works as expected
Just installed 5 of these last weekend, the installation is simple, and it works exactly as expected. The garage now looks very organized, and the bicycle are accessible. I was expecting the weight to be too much for my wife, but not at all, the pully system does its job. Do not hesitate to buy if you want to resolve the mess in your garage.

Great product
Great product and works very well. The instructions say to measure the distance between the seat and handle bar where the hooks hold the bike and mount the 2 pulley attachments the same distance apart on the joists. That is OK if hanging the bike parallel to the joists. If your use requires hanging the bike perpendicular to the joists, the exact measurement can't be done when joists are 2' on center. It still works fine, but if your measurement is for example 30", the lowering of the bike works much better if you attach the pulleys 4' apart rather than 2' apart.

    Great Way to Clear Floor Space
    I needed to increase the storage space in my garage and this bicycle lift did the trick. It is pretty simple to install, all parts are included with directions. Because my ceiling joists were running perpendicular to the direction I needed to mount, I first secured a board running across the joists and then mounted to that. The mounting brackets have extra holes for additional mounting screws if desired.

    Good ceiling bike rack
    Easy to assemble. Stores bike in the ceiling and frees floor space. Easy to lower bicycle when needed, and easy to raise it back into storage position when finished.

      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.

      Ceiling mount is a great space saving gadget!
      I downsized from single-family home to a townhome, so now have a smaller garage. I have 3 bikes with no room or place to keep them. Along comes the bike ceiling mount and bike lift gadge to the rescue! I purchased 3 mounts, installed them in about an hour and had all 3 bikes up and off the floor with room to spare for my vehicles. Great gadget, easy to install and easy to operate. Worth every penny!

        Great way to get bike out of the way
        I installed three of these to free up space in the garage. Installation was easy and the bikes are securely out of the way.

        Effective bike storage
        Easy to mount, effectively secures the bike and provides more floor space in the garage. My garage trusses ran perpendicular to the wall where I wanted to mount the bikes. A 2x4 attached to the trusses with lag bolts solved the problem. A smaller person may have difficulty raising a bike. Use gloves when lowering the bike to avoid accidental rope burn.

        Rancor ceiling bike mount
        Works exactly as described. I have two recumbent tricycles that take up a lot more floor space than your typical two wheeler. I am delighted to have them up off of the garage floor and out of the way, not to mention the tires should hold their air pressure a lot longer this way.

          impressive
          Very smooth system. I liked it so much that I bought a second one. Having the extra floor space in my garage is so nice I'm considering buying a few more to use in combination to lift and store larger heavier objects off the floor. My only complaint is the pulleys don't always lift at the same rate- however that's easily corrected.

            Love this bike-hanger
            Several years ago I purchased two of these great hangers, loved them and just bought my third. It is such a great way to store my bikes and the garage is neat and tidy again. We placed them on the ceiling next to the wall. No chance I will hit the bikes when I open the car door. It is a cinch to install--less than 30 minutes including gathering the drill and ladder. Hooking the bike up to the hanger is child's play. My grandkids (4, 10, and 12) all can hook the bikes and lift them up and out of the way. If your bikes are particularly, heavy they may be more difficult to lift, but you do have the benefit of the pulley to help. Our bikes are not that heavy.

            Does the job
            Easy to install and works fine. I may add a crank with a spool to lift and lower the bike rather than by hand.

            it is up and haven't had chance to use it much in the winter, but it did work when we first put it up
            it took a while to find the studs in the garage ceiling but it is holding and it did work when I put the bike up on it. haven't had the chance to use it much in the winter but it should be fine, know more in the spring when I use it more often.

            Not Just for Bicycles!
            I needed to store a telescoping combination ladder up against the rafters of the garage, where it was totally out of the way when not in use, as it took up valuable floor space in my crowded garage.I looked at various solutions and this one seemed to fit the briel. It works a treat! I spaced the pulleys at the distance between the top and bottom rungs, and faced the hooks towards the center, and up it went! The 22' folding ladder is at the top end of the weight limit, but within those limits. Just to make sure, I mounted the the pulleys using carriage bolts instead of the included wood screws, to provide added strength. The only issue I had with the product is the size of the wall mount cleat for cable/rope stowage is way too small for the amount of rope needed to raise and lower the pulleys. The manufacturer should think about increasing the size of this particular piece.

            Very Good Value
            Very easy to install, assuming you can find the joists (painted garage ceiling!). Works well, little effort necessary to hoist bicycles.
