1. The poles are telescoping making one a thinner diameter that is not very clamp-able. One user even claimed this was a one bike rack as the upper portion with a thinner diameter was unusable.
2. Even on the thicker diameter pole the clamping strength may not hold over time and bicycle may inch downward.
3. The surface of ceiling/floor and height of extension are considerable factors.
1. I put the thicker diameter pole as the upper so both clamps could attach to it. This puts my lower bike just above the neoprene grip that keeps the clamp from going lower. The problem with the thinner diameter is no longer an issue.
2. The upper clamp still slid a down a bit at my first attempt to put a bike on it. I took an old tennis ball and cut a small piece and wedged it between the clamp and the pole with the rubber side facing the pole. After a good tightening the hanger is firm and definitely not coming down. Easy fix + I didn't even buy the old tennis ball, I found it. Any piece of rubber should do the trick. This was inspired by a user posting that they used an old bike tube.
3. I knew before hand that my rack would be on a carpet floor and the ceiling height was on the lower end (~8'-0")so the bike hangar did not have to be extended near capacity. So it is pretty stable. Not stable enough to climb or anything rough but it can easily handle on/off of either bike with no worries on my end.
On a side note the box arrived cut in half with holes and with the pole inside holding it together but miraculously all the parts made it. Also, I had free 2 day shipping that ended up being 6 days.Read more ›
I wish there were accessories to hold my helmet and shoes. I currently have them hanging on the second bike hook under my bike so that all my main equipment is together.
For the price, this is also a great value.

This is close to the limit of how high you can go with these... in the video in my room, these are mounted at a height of 9'4". I had them in another room at a ceiling height of 10 feet, but I had to give them a "lift" with a large brick underneath the ground foot plate. As long as you don't put too much sideways pressure on these racks they will do fine. Even at the max height they are stable enough for what I would consider normal use.
As you can see I have a number of bikes, these all range from mid to high-end competitive bikes, so they may be a bit lighter than commuter bikes, beach cruisers, or low-end road/mtn bikes. Heavier bikes might be a bit less stable, but again I think as long as you use care when mounting/unmounting bikes you won't have problems.
I'm lucky that with the high ceilings, I could get two bikes high enough to put two more bikes just on the ground in front of the rack. To do this, I had to move the lower clamp above the tensioner grip in the middle, as you can see in the video. As other commenters noted, you do have to tighten these knobs pretty substantially to prevent slippage, especially where I have them mounted on the top skinner half of the rack.
Also it does take some finesse to get the amount of tension just right, such that the hooks and foot plates face the way you want. You don't want too much or too little tension... you might notice at the top foot plate, the paint separated just a smidge in the corner at the junction of the ceiling and the molding. This doens't bother me at all. They have been in this position for almost 2 years.
Overall fantastic product with GREAT value. Highly recommended. I am considering another rack just to hang my wheels from.
If I could have given this 3.5 stars out of 5 or 7 out of 10, I would have, but there are a couple minor flaws that are worth noting. First is that this is a pole-within-a-pole design. The upper part extends out of the inner part, meaning that there are two different diameters in play here. You'd think then that the bike hangers would have different diameter collars - one for the upper smaller diameter pole, and another one for the lower larger diameter pole. This is not the case. They are both made to lock securely on the larger diameter pole, which means that you have to crank the living daylights out of the upper lock to keep it from sliding. Even with a relatively light road bike up top, it would tend to slide down. So I wrapped the pole with a chunk of about 15 sheets of post-it notes and wrapped the collar around that. Made a huge different, and my expensive toy doesn't slide or fall at all.
The next flaw is the tension lock that allows the bike hanger to pivot. If your bike is front heavy, loosen it, rock the bike back, and tighten it town to keep it nice and level. Or at least that's the theory.Read more ›

the bike holders slide up and down on the pole no matter how tight you make them. This is with light, aluminum bikes. A steel bike would not be held securely on this rack.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
