I received this item a few weeks ago and just had an opportunity to use it today. The product appears to be of very good quality and works exactly as was presented on the web site. Removing the rear tire on my mountain bike was a breeze and more importantly, it made putting the wheel back on easy! I am totally impressed with this product. Great job and be proud!
Used it once on my Trek Domane AL3. Little bit of a ‘learning curve’, but it does what it’s supposed to.
It took me two tries to become a pro with this tool and it saves me all kinds of grief, mess, and frustration. Best tool I have hands down. Just watch the videos, can’t go wrong.
For all cyclists that strive with riding a clean and well kept bike, this tool is a must!
Well, I saw it, looked at it, watched videos, and was still skeptical but figured I’d give it a try and really, expected I’d be returning it. Boy was I wrong! This has become the best assistant I have had when it comes to working on my bike. I’d rank it higher than my stand. Used multiple times per week as I put my bike on and take it off the trainer, as I clean it after a ride, and it has made the process of removing and reattaching the wheel, simple and so quick and easy. So happy with my purchase…you’ll kick yourself for not purchasing sooner. - Paul
I bought this tool so I could service our bikes—2 e-bikes and a Trek DualSport.
In the “How To” videos, those bikes had no fenders, no racks or anything around the rear derailleur or cassette. My bikes have fenders, racks and the struts to attach them to the rear of the frame. The struts/ attachments interfere with use of the Chainlift. Customer service was helpful, but the original intent of the Chainlift, to EASILY separate chain from rear sprockets disappears if there is anything attached to rear of the bike. I don’t recall any disclaimer about this fairly significant issue. None the less, I was still able to use the tool to lift the chain off the rear sprocket for purpose of cleaning and maintenance. I could probably also take the wheel off, but it is not clean and easy.
So, nothing wrong with the tool and how it is supposed to work. If you have fenders or racks that have struts or mounting points on the frame, you will need to either detach those or try to work/manipulate the tool into position. A frustrating and dirty task. So, it’s a good idea and works with stripped down road bikes, but———-
If you are very picky with your your bike, you need the chainlifter. So easy to use, like the third hand you never had.
Klasse Service und ein tolles Produkt
