A great product and the first of its kind as far as I know. Removing and replacing the rear wheel from bike is always a messy and sometimes an aggravating job. After 30 years of cycling I was not getting any better at it. With the chain lift that I received a week ago my ability to remove my rear wheels was much better than before and through repeated use I am sure it will get to be easier and easier!
Excellent support by email with good instructional video and personalized review of photos of my clusters in less than 24 hours. Material quality of tool appears excellent
Worked very well once you figure out all the angles and pins.
I called to ask a question about my 2022 BMC bikes configuration, I spoke with Fernando about what I would need for the Chainlift to work. I sent a few pictures of my bikes detailer. He said that it would require the offset part SHM-6. I ordered the Chainlift and the required parts. I works like a champ!! Thank you for the help and creating a great tool!!
I ride my bike at home on a trainer. I one once a week to a training class with my bike and trainer. The Chanlift has made my life so much easer to take the the bike off and on trainer. This is a must have if you need to take your rear wheel off your bike!
The tool is perfect and meets my needs.
This is a great tool that should be in every cyclist’s tool box. It’s very well built and very easy to use.
This is a tool that you don’t know you need until you have it. Then you can’t be without it. I have multiple drivetrains. Including Ultegra, Dura-ace and GRX815. I had questions on the compatibility of the GRX AND Fernando was quick to respond. Amazing service.
VERY HELPFUL! I often switch between outdoor riding and the trainer. This is great for carrying the bike to the basement; it keeps the chain from scratching the frame. Also helpful when doing maintenance with the rear wheel off (same reason).
This makes changing a rear wheel/tire sooooo much easier! Last time I took my my mountain bike rear wheel off it took me over an hour, with lots of cursing, to get it back on, and I almost damaged the derailleur in the process. With the chainlift, it only took a couple of minutes. Even though it is a tool you won't be using all the time, for me, it was worth it after just one use.
Have not had a chance to use it for repair or adjustment yet but have gone through the process of getting familiar with it, taking the wheel off and on a couple of times. It's so simple, easy and quick. In the past, I've spent 20 minutes or more trying to get a rear wheel on and off. The Chainlift took me, maybe, three minutes. I love it.
I have been very happy with my ChainLift. But when I upgraded to Di2 105, I found that none of the pins that came with my ChainLift would work. Fernando was super patient with me as we verified that I was not confusing the directions. He determined that I would need a new pin due to Shimano's finishing process on the Di2 105. Fernando was very gracious in sending me the new pin for free. I am once again happily using my ChainLift. Thank you!
The CHAINLIFT tool works as advertised. I purchased it to help change out wheelsets on my new all road bike. CHAINLIFT makes changing between my gravel and road wheelsets a breeze. Once the tool is in place one can remove the rear wheel one handed without touching a greasy/chain.
I was very impressed with the company because when I could not get the product to work properly, the inventor, Fernando, responded to my email with a telephone call and we did a facetime as he showed me what I was supposed to be doing. That was extremely helpful and he spent time with me making sure I could do it correctly. I am very pleased with the product, and also with what I would define as exceptional customer service. Great product, great customer service. I do highly recommend Chainlift.
I downsized my car a few years ago. I could stow my bike in the old car without removing either wheel. With the new car, both wheels need to come off to get the bike in the back. Until now with the new car, I had trouble motivating myself to get out and ride (riding without car transport is not an option for me) due to effort and mess. CHAINLIFT reduces/eliminates the mess part, and will get me back on the road more often. As a mechanical engineer, I really appreciate the design of the CHAINLIFT. I pinched my thumb when articulating the device right out of the box (RTFM!) but once was enough. The CHAINLIFT is really easy to use after one or two tries. Great product!
great product and pretty easy to use.Makes the job way easier.
This tool is crazy! First, watch the video, then watch it again. This things took me from cussing while putting my tire on to not even thinking about it! This thing is my favorite tool in a long time! Thanks
I have all through Axels except for the rear of my Cannondale SuperSix. It is quick release on the rear only, and I always have a fight getting the disc brake and chain lined up. The other problem was hearing the disc rub if I didn't have it right. This tool solves both my problems. It showed up soon after I ordered it, and I spent an hour playing around with it on the rack. I wish I could carry it with me on rides Ha!!!
Works great and seems to be very well made.
This is a must have for the everyday cycling, pro, weekend warrior or even bike shop! We can’t rave enough of how clutch this tool is for traveling, on and off the trainer as well as the wheels change diva!
I finally had a chance to try Chainlift after receiving it a couple of weeks ago. After receiving it I realized that I needed a different pin than was included. I sent a message to customer support on a Friday evening, to my surprise they responded right away. The pin was shipped the following Monday. Some of the best customer support that I've encountered.
As for the tool itself, over the summer I purchased a new Trek Emonda, when I went to mount it on the trainer I discovered what a pain their thru axle is to deal with using one hand. With the Chainlift it became a trivial task.
I have waited a while to write a review because I wanted to test Chainlift under various scenarios. I've always hated taking off the back wheel but Chainlift has made this a much easier job. As a tool, it works well. Lifts the chain off the wheel to facilitate removal and holds it in place so that the wheel can be attached without any problems or dirty hands from touching the chain. Another useful feature I found is when taking off the wheel to put the bike in the boot of a car for transport. Before Chainlift I would secure the chain to the chain stay with Velcro or the like. Chainlift makes the operation so much easier. I have 4 bikes and with help from Fernando have the correct pins for the various derailleurs. The tool is well made and easy to use (especially after having watched various educational videos on YouTube. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase.
Prodotto eccezionale e idea geniale!
Utilizzo chainlift per montare la mia bici sui rulli smart e faccio tutta l’operazione in un attimo senza sporcarmi e senza impazzire!!
One of those items you believe not to need but after using it you wonder how you could ever live without it. Very solid, well thought through and of high quality. Every time a true pleasure to use!
