Bought these from lidl a while ago, great price.
Only downside was sometimes the ropes come off the wheels as the groove isn't very deep.
#2
Obviously Lidl doesn't pay HUKD anything - it's 89 degrees at the mo and still hasn't become hot.:)
#3
Heat added, but unfortuntely not listed in the current deals for my area :? :-(

Doh! Just double checked and it's there, along with a heap of other nice looking cycling stuff!

Cheers!

does this make the bike fall off or are they really secure.

Good find. Some other good bike stuff that i'll probably get as well!

I fitted these, and the hoiked my bike up into the garage roof space. I then looked at the rope, and wondered what would happen if it broke whilst I was underneath it.

A week beforehand, I had fitted a new TV aerial in my loft. It had come with a bracket to hold it in place on a roof mast. I didn't need to use it, but was aluminium and had looked too useful to chuck so I put it to one side. I had also moved house and found some 15mm copper pipe that had been left over from some plumbing work 10 years ago. There was also some pipe insulation from before that. The copper pipe was just the right size to fit in the aerial bracket. I then threaded that through the insulation, so that it wouldn't scratch the paint on my bike. The cord from the pulley hasn't broken yet, but I'm still rather proud of my additional bracket.

Blimey, way to go macgyver! I thought you were going to say you made a rocket launcher out of it or something!

No! the bike is secure, but if the rope comes off the wheel you need to get a ladder/chair to put the rope back on.
It all really depends how fast you are pulling the bike up and down. It only comes off if you are not very careful .:thumbsup:

Well spotted. I see that it even has a safety brake. Wouldn't trust it not to stop "the load from crashing down" though. :)

I have two of these in my shed - its not much bigger than a cupboard but with these for the bikes and some decent shelving I can get loads in there.

Hmm won't let me link to ebay - just search for bike hook

I've had a couple of these (mine and the wifes bikes) and they are excellent - especially as they are comparable to others on the market costing c£70.

Katya, Try Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op as they have some good alternatives that are not too expensive

The Peruzzo 4 bike storage rack looks good to me but I haven't actually used one.
