The bike rack is light weight and can slide around your garage floor if not backed up to a wall or secured to the ground (doesn't come with brackets - you'd have to improvise). It took less than 10 minutes to assemble and holds 3 bikes perfectly (even a tandem). You install the "slots" so you can determine if you want all the bikes on one side or to alternate them. It's a good way for little kids to put their own bikes away. Most other systems required lifting or using techniques that a 5 year old can't handle. My kids can now just roll their bike into the rack instead of dumping it on the garage floor. Over all it has been a great value and solved our bike dog pile issue in the garage. I just ordered another as a gift to a friend.
Bought as a replacement for another pair of Centos that I wore out. They can wear out somewhat quickly, especially older models, so that is a negative. And some Shimao purists may dislike the double lever system--one for upshifting, the other for downshifting--but I don't mind it. The do their job.
I like my bike stored with the weight off the tires, and this stand allows me to store the bikes two ways. Either lengthwise, or horizontal, and I have had it for more than two seasons. Still love it.
Very easy to assemble and lightweight. I was a little reluctant because the two bikes do have a little bit of weight to them so it had to be sturdy enough to support them. This was not a problem and it held up perfectly. The only downside to the whole thing was the adjustment of the bike holders. It was took some trial and error to get them to fit together. The picture looks nice but the reality is we ended up end for ending the bikes so there was enough room for them to sit over each other. They face in opposite directions. No problem in the long and short of it as the rack is functioning the way we wanted it to. By allowing us to keep the bikes upright and stacked we've gained more floor space. Win win.
