great- need a couple of these.
LOL
looks good
got 2 in the garage, you need very high roofs to make use of them, measure your bike plus 1-2ft, my wheels would have only just cleared my car roof (which is below head height and i'm only 5'10")
do you have to then move the car out to get at the bike..?

I suspect i'd have *fear* hoisting a bike above my car.

I wonder if I could easily modify one of these for storing my cars hard top roof when it's not on the car though..
it depends on the bike
one of ine has a pannier(as per the pic),so no worries
the HT MTB has diamond tubing and a slim saddle
its a pain to get secure
also consider wall hooks for the wheels
so you hoist it and then hook the wheels to the wall
keeps the bike out the way
I mounted my bikes likes this in my last flat
Capital punishment for bikes that kill
I adapted one of these to store my ladders, worked a treat.
hoist itself is a good pulley system, just need a high roof, no good for me, never thought about attaching the wheels to the wall once hoisted, might look at that
Not looking at this for permanent storage as I have a very nice downhill bike that I wand to securely lock up, but wondering if one of these would work as a useful bike workshop stand

Anyone got one? What do you think?
Could do with one of these. hmm but where would I put it tho....

hmmm,to a point
I would secure it with a bungee or something
not as good as using a stand
'only' looking at £50 or so for a stand. they are worth it

Aldi or Lidl have done bike workshop stand offers in the past.Forget how much the last one was.Keep an eye out as the offers tend to repeat each year.
useless with anything but expensive bikes as it only supports 20KG
Thinking of buying these for the kids bikes but will have to store in the hall so wondering what that will look like when guests come through the door! Do you have to have the pannier on the back or can you hook it to the seat as kids bikes don't have panniers on them! Hot from me either way.
would this be okay to attach to an asbestos roof?
Excellent...just bagged one, this should help me roll the wife over "when the magic happens" in our bedroom - just hope the joists in our bedroom ceiling are up to it...she's a bloater.
Cheers for pointing this out, was planning on looking at this next time. Just using either my work stand or two hooks at the moment but need a steps when doing it.

Asbestos? Not sure if joking.... you DON'T drill into asbestos because you don't want ANY particles in your lungs.

I thought - talk about stating the obvious BUT someone has liked it!

Just a heads-up, but I noticed Maplin have started selling these too. They're 1p more, but if you can't wait or don't live near a LIDL they might prove to be worth the extra expense.

Well, it's held my cheapo Argos bike for the past two years (the hoist has had more use than the bike...)

Very few bikes weigh more than 20KG except maybe certain recumbents, sociables and tandems. Show me a bike that is over 20kg and I bet it will be a BSO or a very heavy downhill bike.
Excellent!

I've currently got my Specialized stump jumper pro HT held on the joist by rope. Very awkward to hoist it up and tie it.
Just needs to clear my car bonnet so should be fine.

Best set a reminder in my phone to go buy one.
Any of the other cycling items to go on sale worth it?

Have one of these and one of the similar ones aldi do, they are both great for hosting bikes out of the easy of the car. The lidle ones have much better hooks than the aldi ones.
Hot deal
Just had a butchers, it looks a right rip off- the advert suggests contents and accessories not included,,,,
Not only useful for bikes. I use 2 of these to store my roof box when it's not on the car.
Round here you don't need to pay to have your bike hoisted.

Get someone else to drill the holes. No problem.

Re Below - Edinburgh Cycles have a sale on this weekend.

they're referring to the bike! oO

+1. My ladder is held up by one of these too and it's a big ladder. Easy to get the ladder in and out of the garage now.

Not good as a work stand, sometimes I got lazy and used these but the bike just swings around too much and you are likely to knock it off the hooks (read below).

I have 4 of these.

I used the excess rope (its only excess when the bike is DOWN), to make loops around each of the hooks (there is a hole in them) which I use to secure under my saddle and around the bars. The hooks on some (most) saddles are dire, and using the security loop I made has saved me LOADS of times.



Getting a bike up and down on these can be "awkward", but its less awkward than moving 2/3 bikes out of the way and placing them all back without getting pedals stuck in spokes etc.
