This project was worth the blood sweat and fears. My goal was to lift my bike off the ground so I could work on the wheels. All other bike lift's never made sense to me. All they really do is lift the bike up so you don't bend over to work on it. Great but what is you want to work on the wheels, breaks, chain, forks or swing arm. Some bikes can't be lifted under the motor so you end up rigging up something that could damage the bike or you.
I'm very happy with the results. It takes 5 min to setup. I use it even if I'm not taking the wheels off. The lift leaves the bike and raises it up to a comfortable position to work on.
