The one negative on it is that the bikes tend to act as levers when mounted, so a relatively light push on the seat or handlebar will make the whole assembly want to rotate on it's vertical axis. That also implies that the bottom or top could pivot out and the whole thing come crashing down.
To avoid that possiblity, I drilled two countersunk holes in the ceiling mount and, once in place under a beam, ran two 3" screws in there to secure it. With that insurance in place I'm perfectly confident of it's stability.
First and foremost, I would like to comfort anyone with a step through bike or mountain bike frame with a top tube that is not parallel to the ground that this storage rack WILL INDEED work for you. What's not explained in the product description is that the rubber coated "arms" that the bike frame rests on are two separate pieces for each bike, and one can be hung higher or lower than its companion arm to accommodate top tubes that are not at a 90 degree angle to the vertical body of the rack. My wife has a step-through cruiser that requires that the arms be placed at different heights; I have one arm placed at the top angle between the seat tube and the seat stay and the other arm positioned under the bottom down tube. For my mountain bike, both arms are under the top tube, but one side is about 3 cm (1.25") higher than the other. The fact that the frame is designed to accommodate these differences in frame types is immensely helpful.
Also, note that we have my mountain bike placed higher on the rack than my wife's cruiser, despite the fact that the cruiser weighs about 1/3 less than mine (yes, it's a heavy old Specialized Rockhopper, but it's a dang good bike). It's a lot easier for me to get my bike down from the higher position than it would be for my wife. Despite the higher weight placed approximately in the middle of the entire frame apparatus, the rack is sufficiently stable.Read more ›
If you have a ceiling that requires you to use close to the 10' max (which means that a significant length of the vertical is the extender arm exposed by itself, as opposed to the externder arm inside the main body), and you have 2 full-size bikes, it seems as though you can't avoid screwing the top bike rack pieces (or whatever they're called) straight into the exposed extender arm. At least this was the case with mine. The instructions provide no guidance for this instance, but I had 2 options. The first was to screw the rack holder to the small blocks, and then attach that to the outside of the extender arm. The second was to screw the rack holder directly into the extender arm, and then place the small block in between the 2 extender arm (in similar manner as you do when attaching the rack pieces into the main body. This second option is not a possible option if the placement of the left and right racks overlap at all (that is, if they aren't staggered more than 1 block length; this is because the screws from the left and right sides won't have enough length to thread all the way in). I had overlap, so I went with option 1. Doing so would've been perfect, except that there ends up being a little bit of the screw left exposed in the middle of the extender arm. I wish they had anticipated this problem, and had included additional small blocks in case. Extra blocks would also add to the stability of the unit when attaching the racks this high. I'll probably end up buying wood for that middle section that is exposed.
Other than that, it's all good. I'll also suggest that if anyone is concerned about stability, screwing the top of the unit to your ceiling, either through a stud or using drywall anchors, works well.Read more ›
