Easy Chain Management
CHAINLIFT manages your bike chain and makes routine tasks easy!
Works in 3 Quick Steps
This tool is amazing. It greatly simplfies handling your chain for removing your tires, to transporting your bike. I take my bike off its smart trainer mutiple times now and replaced my back wheel with ease now that I have this tool. Before it was a struggle to line up the axle while managing the chain and the mess of dealing with bike grease. Not anymore. Chainlift has removed that messy situation from my plate, and makes it much easier to swap my back tire out for the trainer and visa versa. You must get this.
I followed the directions on the video. CHAINLIFT worked flawlessly the very first time I used it on my road bike. It is a tool that will be used countless times and I would highly recommend getting this product in your bag of tricks as soon as possible!
I put my bikes on the stand to clean the drivetrain and re-lube the chain after every ride, and the chainlift makes it so much easier to pull the rear wheel and get the dummy hub installed. No dirty fingers, no scratches on the chainstay. Support is great too - one of my bikes has a really huge loop for the rear derailleur cable, I emailed Fernando and he replied within an hour with links to a couple of videos showing slightly different techniques to make it easy to deal with odd situations like that.
In the end is the chainlift a *necessary* tool? No ... but is it worth the investment? 100% YES!
As many reviews have mentioned there is a learning curve to figure out all of the moving parts but once you have it figured out it is so easy to use it changes your world. Reinstalling a rear wheel with a disc brake went from a real struggle to being only slightly more tricky than working on the front.
I always hated to remove the back wheels on my road bike, chain grease, chain against frame and messy. With Chain Lift I have confidence in removing back wheel and cleaning cassette easily. I have used it a couple time and ver y easy to use. I showed some co-workers this and they thought it was awesome. Sold me on your product.
I bought the chain left because I was tired of all the pain hassle and greasy hands taking my bike between the trainer and my garage depending on the variable weather in Seattle. Now I have a great tool that makes the worst part of cycling a little bit easier. Their videos are a big help to understand this new tool.
super easy to use, keeps hands clean, and makes taking off your back wheel a snap!!! Buy one now!
I needed some help and sent an email on a Sunday expecting to hear back on Monday. Nope responded same day. Outstanding
This product WORKS! BUT, you must follow the instructions!!! Watch the video, as others have said, it's NOT INTUITIVE! I played with it in front of my bike, beforehand, trying to figure it out, and I got close, but not 100% there, but I read the reviews, and knew not to attempt using without following the instructional video.
Chainlift is a well made, VERY robust product. I highly recommend it! Worth the price, even if you only have one bike to use it on.
Great tool to use if you're doing self maintenance or need to travel and need to remove the back wheel.
Watch the instruction video before adjusting the Chainlift to the rear derailleur.
This is the #1 most handy bike tool in my toolbox. 1. Put your chain in your small (front) chainring. 2. Put your (rear) cassette into the gear appropriate for the device. (On mine it's 3rd from the smallest ring.) 3. Watch the video on how to do the rest. (Press the white side against your derailleur.) Once you learn how to use it, it's a cinch. Great to be able to do diagnostics on the back wheel without the clicking sound. Your fingers don't get so greasy. GREAT JOB Chainlift.
Wow! I must say I'm impressed and glad I ordered Chainlift! Now, to be fair I've only used it once since I received it. But once I understood the steps to get it to work, it just couldn't have been easier to take off my chain/back derailleur off the cassette that was on my smart trainer! And it was just as easy putting it back on! I know bike mechanics can do this in their sleep but I'm not quite as inept and it always takes me a bit to get the chain disconnected and the derailleur where it to should be to get the wheel off. It's even worse for me trying to put it back on. Plus, while I should probably wear gloves, I usually don't and end up getting dirty chain lube on my hands/fingers. Not with Chainlift! Well, maybe a little, but nothing like before. Some constructive feedback: The "Disengage Your Chain" video has to be s-l-o-w-e-r. The 3 quick steps were just too quick in the video and I had to play that over a couple of times. One other thing that I'm not quite sure about is the derailleur pin. I think I have the correct one. But it doesn't go the whole way into the derailleur hole and sticks. I checked a couple of times and it says it should be SHM-1 for Shimano Ultegra RD-8050 Di2. It still worked fine, but I wasn't sure if the pin should be able to go the whole way in the derailleur hole or not. In any case, this is an awesome product and I might just get another one as a spare :)
The actual chain holder arm was initially a bit tough to pull out of the assembly to place in working position but works great and definitely recommend.
Chainlift experience has been oustanding.
The entirety of the process and customer service is only exceeded by the product itself.
Chainlift is as advertised. Use is intuitive.
I didn't even need to read the instructions.
Two weeks in, it is a tool that I highly recommend. To that end, I have secured five additional units to gift to friends.
This is a very cool product, and oneof the best invention. It makes taking the back wheel easy and make carrying it even easier. It keeps your hands clean and you car clean too. Highly recommend for cyclist and triathletes!
Cleaning the chain it is easier now. Also, I can check, hear and adjust the rear disc rotor. The quality of the product justify the price. I use this tool for my disk and non disk bikes. Thank you.
A bit pricey, but really great and simple device, which is very useful to service you r bike or put in on the trainer
I love bike maintenance but hate taking my back wheel off. Why? I don’t have a bike stand and I always fear that I will make one minor mistake that will be costly (either monetarily or physically). With Chainlift, I have turned into the neighborhood mechanic. I am cleaning components better and changing tires with much more ease. After you use it once, it’s like riding a bike!
This product lived up to expectations. I did have to watch the videos several times, but eventually cracked the code on how to use it. I will now be less timid about dropping the rear wheel to clean the cassette more thoroughly.
I don’t usually read manuals but with this product you need to watch all the instructional videos. Once you watch them then product is super easy to use. It has enabled me to maintain my bike more because it’s now so much easier to remove the rear wheel. It works as advertised and I highly recommend it.
I bought this tool basically for when I need to remove my rear wheel. Even though that isn’t often, I dreaded getting all greasy and getting the derailer out of the way to remove the tire. After using tool, it worked very well. It seems like the costs is high but it is well made and it will last longer than I’ll ever be riding my various bikes. A good tool is an investment that won’t loose it’s value down the road. The customer support was excellent, before and after my purchase.
The Chainlift is the best new product I have found for my bikes. If you do work on your own bikes, this is a must have. Very well designed and easy to use following the online training videos.
I've been eyeing this product for a few months and, to be frank, have been skeptical. After a good bit of reading and research, I decided to order a Chainlift and give it a chance. I received the product and, within 10 minutes, had everything figured out. The product is amazing, well constructed, and is the best bike accessory I've purchased in years. You will not regret purchasing one; very useful.
I have found several very useful applications but nothing that's not already recognized. One in particular is travel. I often fly a light GA airplane and I find the ChainLift particularly useful for enabling me to pack my bike in the back with no mess. It locks down the chain with the wheel off so it is not laying on the upholstery and creating a mess in flight. I also find it very useful for cleaning the chain and rear end of most any bike but particularly true for my gravel bike. Particularly my gravel bike
"This is a nifty tool. I I don't know how much ypu paid but it was worth the money!" Words frommy husband. The Chainlift has brought so much ease to mounting/unmounting the bike from the trainer. Now we take bikes on/off the trainer without any hesitation.
One of those moments when you think: “Why didn’t I think of that?” Sure you can use a rag to wrap around the chain to yank your wheel off to swap out, change your cassette, do some cleaning or mount to an indoor trainer, but why do that when you have this? In most cases, the everyday “Joe” won’t use this thing a whole lot, but when you need to, it’s nice to have in your tool box. It is simple to use, but I recommend watching the videos just to get familiar with it. Comes with all the necessary bits for whatever derailleur you have, and it’s designed well and well-built. Because it’s burly and sturdy, it seems like the ideal tool for bike shops. I think it will stand up to constant and consistent use.
Chainlift is an easy-to-use, convenient tool. I have used it to move bikes on and off our indoor smart trainers and thought - "Why didn't someone invent this sooner?" This is a great product.
This is an excellent concept and a great tool. Works as advertised. Very happy to add it to my bike mechanic shop.
A fantastic tool that allows swapping bike from road ready to stationary trainer (and back) quickly without getting hands greasy! Good quality, backed up by great customer service.
Couldn't be happier! Needed to do something during all these crazy times at home, so thought I would give it a try - works exactly as described. i actually enjoy switching wheels now, depending on road conditions!!
This is an AWESOME product! You just need to watch the videos and have a little patience. If you get stuck, Fernando and Team will help you out. Can’t say enough good things about this tool and the company. Looking forward to future innovations!
Makes cleaning and adjusting disc brakes a breeze.
I do all my own bike maintenance and decided to make the purchase based on others reviews and to support the people who support our sport. The quality of this product is outstanding. It took me 10 minutes to read through the instructions and watch the manual. After that it I was able to use it right away. Can’t wait to get back in the garage this week to wrench some more and utilize my new tool.
I've only had to use the Chainlift tool a few times but it has functioned perfectly, holding the chain out of my way while I worked on the bike. A very innovative and convenient tool for my home shop.
Don't know why everyone doesn't order one! Took a few minutes to figure out but the how-to instructions on the website were great. Once figured out, this thing is easy and amazing.
