Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Racor PBH-1R Ceiling-Mounted Bike Lift. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.40 stars, and the price range is $19.18-$31.86.

The Racor PBH-1R Ceiling – Mounted Bike Lift is the perfect way to take advantage of unused ceiling space to store your bike. The lift lets you free up precious storage space on the floor, while keeping your bike stored away safely until you're ready to ride. The Bike Lift uses a rope and pulley system that is mounted to your ceiling, can raise and lower a 50lb bike up to 12 feet by simply latching the hooks to the seat and handlebars and pulling the rope. The included 48-foot lift rope is durable, and it provides plenty of excess length for ceilings up to 14-feet high. Store the excess rope on the included rope cleat to keep it nice and tidy. When you’re ready to ride, unlock the rope and lower your bike… no ladders needed! The bike lift is built from solid steel for maximum durability and toughness. With each pull, the locking mechanism locks into place to eliminate accidental drops. The locking mechanism, pulleys, rope cleat, and lift mechanism offer smooth performance for years to come. This unit can easily be installed into ceiling joists.

However, some reviewers mentioned that, both hooks do not always move together and are less curvy to hold the bike safely. Also, seats having flat bottoms might not be easily secured into the hooks. The poor quality screws stripped and rope frayed easily.

Overall, the Racor PBH – 1R Ceiling – Mounted Bike Lift is highly recommended as a space saving solution for its strong components, flexible design and reasonable price. The box includes - Two lift assemblies, two hook pulleys (one with locking mechanism), 48-foot rope, one rope cleat, 10 two-inch wood screws.
