Inexpensive bicycle storage 2/22/2015
Bought this for our neighbor for his birthday. We already have 2 of our own. Easiest possible way to free up garage space, and keep clutter to a minimum.
Good enough for $15 2/7/2015

Gets the bike up and out of the way. Rope is a very loose weave that snags easily. The pivot on the first block does not seem to have a useful function. If you use the pivot as a brake, it will not lock the line, but if does make the line hard to run through the block. As it is, one hand pulls the rope, the other keeps the bike level front to back, then you wrap the line around the oversize cleat, which holds the load. Use long screws holding the cleat into a wood stud since the brake at the block does nothing to hold the bike's weight, it's all on the cleat.....
I have some Harkin Hoisters that work much better with higher quality components that I raise small boats with. Of course they cost $100+. For this item, low price, moderate performance. Good enough, no more. When the rope gets too lumpy from snags I will replace it with a tighter weave rope and maybe put a clam or jam cleat at the first block to make raising the bike a one handed operation.
Well made 1/10/2014
Bought two to hang four big RC planes, each one weighing over 15 lbs. Worked great.
works as advertised 10/21/2013
If you get past the installation part, this bike hoist works well. The components are strong enough for the job. Only the screws are substandard & get stripped easily. Since they are dry wall screws and you really want to fix the hoist to a wood beam to support the weight of bike, you will do much better with your own wood screws I think.

Great bike hoist 7/10/2013
Steve from Omaha, NE
I bought 2 of these hoists to hang in my garage for mountain bikes for my wife & myself. Home Depot sells them for $25 each, so this was a great buy & is well put together. The only thing I would recommend is to eventually change the rope to nylon rope as the rope that comes with it will fray over time & possibly causing it to break. I mounted the hoists to a 2x4 & put lag bolts into the ceiling joists for better sturdiness. I would also use different wood screws than what came with the package.
Nice looking, but missing the turnbuckle 7/3/2013
Frank from Bensalem, PA - outside Philly
It is nicely painted, looks good, simple, easily attached. Almost all of the indicated parts were there. Missing the turnbuckle that you secure the rope to after raising the bike. Hope they send one. Nice for the price!
Prompt delivery with no issues.

The RAD Cycle Bike Lift Hoist was easy to install and does exactly what I wanted; it gives me more space in my garage. No more moving bikes every time that I try to access my tools.

Great Bike Lift 5/6/2013
Looks good. Assembly went fine. Rope length was extra long for those with tall ceilings.
One person can install but is easier with two people.

Great product/great price 4/16/2013
Dan from Alpena, MI
These lifts are fantastic, I use them for both my bikes & kayaks. The rope is extra heavy and the hooks and pulleys seem to be a very sturdy metal. I have some of the cheaper versions of these bike hoists, and these are much heavier and better built. The most important thing to remember is to attach them securely to the rafters.
Bicycle hoist/ storage 4/15/2013
Design is a good idea. Havent used it enough to determine durability, but appears sturdy. Easy to use.
So far so good 4/15/2013

storage guy from Midlothian, VA
Watch the wording on other products, this one supports 100lbs, while others with same name only support 50 lbs. With double the holding capcity, i was able to hange two bikes with the one hoist (a little extra setup). Recommend the product for DIY people
easy to use 4/12/2013

Love it 4/10/2013
Suzi from Bedford tx
I love the fact that I can get my bike out of the way, but can get to it easily
Haven't had a chance to use it yet 11/2/2012
The package came quickly, but the request for review came just as quickly.....how am I supposed to be able to review something the day after I get it? I haven't even had a chance to open the box.

Just as advertsed 10/29/2012
Tim Mallett from Kalamazoo MI
The bike hoist worked just as adveritsed. It took a bit to get the pulley system assembled correctly but after that everything worked great. My family was very surprised at how smooth the pulley system worked and instead of just using the hoist for winter storage, we are planning on using it year around to keep our pool barn less cluttered. 1st system to around 1 hour to finish. It only took an hour to hang the last 2. Nice product!
Love the bike lifts 10/25/2012
Now we can park closer to the walls, as the bikes are no longer in the way! LOVE IT!
Great value bike hoist 8/6/2012
Failry easy to install as long as you're a bit handy. Hubby and I had to find ceiling stud, drill some holes, screw some screws to install the base plates but that was it. Pretty easy.
