bike hoist

im moveing into a new aprtment here shortly with cathedral cealings and as of right now our bikes are in the dinning room. im looking at getting a bike hoist but wasn't sure if they made one like i want. i found one for cheap at cosco.com but instead of lifting the bike as shown i want to life the bike so it goes flat agains the cealing. do u think if i make a braket that easily mount to the bike then use the existing hooks would be safe......i dont want a bike falling on me from 15 ft in the air.

here is the one i found

Ive not been a fan of the hoists, they are a PITA. Go for the $1.99 rubber hooks, and screw them into a stud.

no one makes anthing to go flat, you'll have to modify something. I would look at a simple 2 prong wall mount and do that.

Like Delta's

i have that bike hoist. it works rather well. you would think it would be semi unsturdy, but there has been a bike hanging in it for the past year straight and it has not moved one inch.
