This was a perfect solution for us. Our 3 year old can ride with training wheels, but cannot keep up with us, and cannot go long distances. This product has allowed us to all enjoy a ride together, at the same pace.

A wood, finished bike rack is great for spaces where you don't want to disrupt style with a merely functional, base metal rack. I already received a complement on the bike rack - the complimenter noticing the wood and expect that it wasn't a consumer product but a custom made solution. It is currently holding my road bike and mountain bike with no problem.

I am very pleased with the quality of this rack! It is built very well from what I can tell, and is holding two bikes up just fine right now. All the components are heavy duty from the steel to the rubber pads. Was cake to put together and setup - my only real gripe is that I can't quite tell "which end is up" when setting it up.

These were a bit hard to install--had to make sure not to drop the tiny screws and bolts that could have been far more secure. But not too complicated. The light is adequate. Not a bad solution for the price.

The bar fits my shock frame Mongoose mountain bikes great, it's easy, and seems robust enough. My only complaint is my bike rocks in the rack which I can't hold against them because nobody has a design to prevent that yet. The solution is to use bungee cords. My other complaint is the paint gets scratched up easily. However, for the price, its well worth the money compared to the competition.

This bike rack was a cinch to put together and is sturdy. It holds my kids bikes, scooters and even their bike helmets. Before the bikes were being thrown down in the garge, somethmes even scratching the car. This bike rack was the perfect solution!

It could be because our ceilings are 9'5 and the limit is 9'6, but it seems a little wobbly. It was installed according to directions and holds the bikes, but it seems to bow in the middle. Like I said, our ceilings are on the high side, but if it says it can extend to 9'6, it should be able to do so. I guess it does its job, I'm just a little nervous one day it will topple over. But for now, it's good. I think it would work better with lower ceilings. Design-wise, it's a great solution to getting bikes out of the way! It's able to sit right against the wall and really opened up space in our garage.

This is a perfect solution if you have more than one bike and need a space saver. I have an apartment and it fits perfect in my limited space. It's well worth the money and would definitely recommend it. It's also very easy to install.

This is a great seat. I have a road bike and typically cycle 30 miles+ at a time. My existing seat leaves a little to be desired and feels awful hard by the time the end of the ride comes around. I didnt want to invest in an entire new saddle so thought I would try this. Ive used a gell cover in the past by Bell for spinning bikes at the gym and it worked fine for that purpose. On the road bike the cover does slide around a little from side to side. It isnt a huge deal, but i will probably permanently stitch the thing on to avoid it from moving around. It does help provide some softer comfort, but again by the end of the ride the seat still feels hard, so you can only expect this as a quick and inexpensive fix to do so much. overall i do recomend it for an easy solution.

I love my new bike rack. I live in a studio apartment that's under 500 sq ft. and was looking for a bike storage solution that didn't look hideous (since I have to look at it every day). The OakRak Floor-to-Ceiling Two Bike Storage Rack is functional, yet stylish. My bikes are out of the way, but they are also sort of on display. My only complaint is that the assembly instructions were a bit vague. With that said, it was still very easy to assemble - similar to putting together IKEA furniture (is this the right screw/ does this go here or there/ etc.).

I couldn't make holes to the wall nor the ceiling so I opted x this against the wall rack. It was the solution to my problem. Installed in 5 minutes with no tools, accomodates in tight places, rubber pads do not damage the surfaces and is strong enough to hold 2 mountain bikes. Looks great and you can even use it to hang crown molding, support drywall. The price is right for this high quality rack.

This bike storage solution was exactly what I was looking for to store my expensive bike in my 1BR loft out of the way and off the floor without having to damage my walls. I am able to store my bike upright on the back of a closet door, and I'm still able to open and close the door without having to remove the bike. The only reason I rated 4 stars instead of five is because I would prefer it in silver instead of black. The construction is solid and heavy duty; I would just recommend it be manufactured in other color options.

We've only had a chance to use the bike rack once, and it worked well. The only issue I found was the design where the ball is to be fastened to the receiver tube. The receiver tube is cut at an angle and you can't get a wrench or socket in there to torque the nut on the ball as required. When I contacted Swagman about this issue I was not impressed with their solution, "Jam a screwdriver inbetween the nut and the tube and tighten the ballside." Not exactly the best way, how can you properly torque the ballside?? My solution was to remove a very small (approximately 1/8"-1/4") of the metal from the bottom side with a grinder to be able to slide a socket on the nut. Then repaint the bare metal to protect against future corrosion.

I wanted to find a bicycle that could be controled with one hand, and had three wheels, for stability, similar to the plastic "big wheel" kids used 25 years ago. My grandson has only his left arm, and was happily riding a "big wheel" trike until the rear wheel fell off. The previous two wheeled bicycles I had given him failed to inspire his need to ride. Grif said he wanted a new "big wheel" ... I wasn't so easily convinced. The whole idea motivated me to investigate three wheeled bicycles on the Internet. There are many; however, the Triton is, for the purpose I intended, the very best three wheeled bicycle on the market. The Triton was an instant favorite, and Grif hasn't missed a day riding it, including during the recent snow storm. The Triton has built his confidence, and allows him to ride, side by side with his brothers, both on two wheeled bicycles. Grif has also learned to safely demonstrate skills and maneuvers that are not easily duplicated on two wheeled bicycles. You can see that Griffin is a proud and confident cyclist, and his Triton is in the words of his friends, "...very cool...! " We think so too. Purchasing a Triton has been a very satisfying experience, and is a bicycle that I would recommend to anyone with "special needs" children that would benefit from a three wheeled bicycle that can be controlled with one hand. Sincerely, Grif''s Grandpa

I was skeptical about buying this product after reading some of the negative reviews. I have to say this exceeded my expectations in all categories. Very easy to install... for the person who said the brackets holding the bikes kept sliding down, maybe you should tighten it more. Or keep the flat part that is on the vertical bar perpendicular to how your mounting the bike. Also to the person who had to get "ghetto" to install it with cardboard, one rubber foot is reverse threaded so you can spin the vertical bar one way to shorten it (loosen, uninstall) or extend it (tighten, install). It's perfect storage solution for anywhere with limited space without drilling holes in the wall or ceiling.
