I first saw the ad for the chainlift on instagram. It looked so simple, fast, and easy that I decided to give it a try. For me, I perform all maintenance and cleaning on my bikes and my bikes get regular cleanings. I also have different wheel sets for different types of terrain I ride. Add the occasional trainer ride during the shoulder seasons, I am changing wheel sets a lot. I mean a lot. In order to protect my bikes and make it easier to remove the rear wheel, I always remove my chain. This means I have to put on gloves, get the chain link tool, remove the chain, carefully store the greasy chain while I swap out wheels. Then repeat in reverse. I have used the chainlift three times since I purchased it. It has saved a lot of time. In the time it takes me to get my vinyl gloves and put them on, the chainlift has me ready to remove my wheel. It is that fast and that easy. This is a brilliant tool and will save me a lot of time. If you are like me and tinker on your own bikes a lot, once you use the chainlift you will ask yourself, why didn't I think of that. Happy riding!
I love riding. I don't know anything about maintaining my bike and taking the wheel off to put it on the trainer has been a huge pain in the past. This makes it quick, easy and not a two person job anymore. Thank you for making this.
Like it says on the box, it’s not intuitive, but the more you use it the easier it is to use. I use it to switch between my trainer tire/wheel and my and my road tire. It was clunky for me at first but after a few tries it gets easier!
It’s a nice bit of kit!
I only had a chance to use it once taking my Trek Domane+ e-bike off of my Wahoo indoor trainer and putting the rear wheel back on. It was a little awkward at first but the CHAINLIFT definitely helped. I feel confident that after using it a few times, it will be a breeze. We’ll worth the purchase.
I bought this after seeing how easy it was to use in the tutorial videos. It's extremely well engineered and built, meaning that it's going to last. The adaptors are well marked so that you can find the correct one quickly. Keeping the chain out of the way (thus protecting the paint on my bike) is a massive help when changing out my rear wheel to go to and from my turbo trainer. In my opinion, definitely a good investment!
CHAINLIFT - Fits ALL <span>except Campagnolo</span>
Sure, you can get your rear off without this, BUT….Can you get your rear wheel off without getting chain guck all over your hands? Or without dropping your wheel or bike because you need a third hand?
Tools should make things easier, and that is exactly what this tool does!
It is not just for taking care of flats, it is a big help for cleaning your bike, for mounting on a indoor trainer, for putting your bike in a car, for aligning the rear brake disc, checking wheel “truing”, ….
It will give you more time to ride your bike!!!
Funktioniert sogar mit Gepäckträger...
Well, well, well - this thing WORKS! I used it to assist me with brake bleeding, bike washing (x3) and chain adjusting. It made all the jobs so much easier. I highly recommend it!
I was impressed with the quality of fabrication of the chain lift. The machined parts and body of the ChainLift are of good quality & justify the price. I have only used it 1x, and it took a little bit of time to figure out- but easy peazy after watching the videos & deciding which pin to use. I recommend investing in this tool if you don't like getting your hands all greasy & are challenged by getting the chain-tire off the frame! It will also be great to get the bike off/on my trainer. I like the ChainLift device & recommend it!
