Greatest cycling tool since the chain whip. Can't beat it- I love this thing. No more fighting with my chain for rear wheel removal. I also love the fact these dudes are based in Florida.
I just used my Chainlift for the first time. It was easy to use and made cleaning my bike easier than ever! Thanks.
Ok, the price is steep and I was debating whether to get it or not. I'm glad I did. I have a gravel bike and two sets of wheels for road and dirt. It's making the wheels switch so much easier. Really useful.
I’ll start by saying this product is great, easy to use, and it works! I’m giving 4 starts instead of 5 for two simple points:
1) I have externally routed cables and the support mechanism on the chain stay requires a bit more caution since it meets the frame right near one of the points where there are cable fasteners on the frame.
2) the part that supports and pulls back on my 105 rear derailleur doesn’t make the sturdiest contact with it. I use extra caution when extending chain lift as not to apply any sideways force to the derailleur as I’m scared it’ll bend or get damaged.
I share these for consideration in future design updates. I’m super happy with this product and it’s made my life so much easier when replacing my wheel between indoor trainer set and outdoor set, and when cleaning my drive train. Love it!
Tried it for the first time today to change disk brake pads on my rear wheel. Watched the instructional videos a few times which helped a great deal. As a result the whole operation worked like a charm. I suspect I’ll need to watch them again next time as a reminder. But eventually, it’ll become second nature. Definitely kept my fingers clean and the the chain never touched the bike, just as advertised.
Works like a charm. Does exactly what it promises! What more can you ask for?
Now my fingers and my frame both stay clean when ever I have to remove the rear wheel.
There is a little bit of a learning curve alright but once you have it set up it is really great to use. The product support is excellent and the shipping was insanely quick. I think any of the reviews I've seen knocking it were by people who hadn't actually ever used it.
It is a little fiddly to work out the first time, but this tool makes taking of wheel very easy, especially with QR skewers. I use it across 9 bikes with 6 different derailleurs, and it is flawless!
I think the message inside the box is really important. This is a very easy tool to use but isn’t immediately intuitive. However, their guidance online and in video is hugely helpful and within minutes, I had gotten the hang of Chainlift and, importantly, it is a hugely useful and helpful tool. Would recommend to everyone who would like some useful help in maintaining their bike. Chainlift makes it easy.
the first chainlift device would not work on both my wife’s bike and my own. seemed the springs were too weak as the chainlift would not hold it’s position. Fernando sent out a replacement within days and this one works as advertised.
Pleased with the device and also the service and support.
Great product works as advertised
I’m satisfied with this chain lift.I hope to know this soon.It helpl me so easy to chain tire.no creasing and messy When cleaning my bike. I bring it with me when when I need it. Definitely looking in the future for accessories..
I finally got to use this tool to swap out my rear tire. What a convenient way to hold the chain and do repairs. Highly recommend this indispensable piece of equipment!!
Used a few times already. Works amazingly!
I had read about the ChainLift over the last year, but I finally purchased it. Only regret was not purchasing sooner.
Took me some time to understand how it works, but once I got it, I definitely recommend Chainlift
The tool is very useful, easy to use and well built. The supplier is professional, serious and very kind. My Chainlift had a defect in the chain hook and within days they sent me another one in perfect working order. Thank you very much.
Keep your hands clean and remove the rear wheel! Great tool to have!
Very responsive to getting me custom pivot key.
Great product. Just follow simple directions in video.
I'll be honest, I was a little bit sceptical when I went into this purchase, I spent a long time asking myself if I really needed it, but I dived in anyway.
Yesterday I used it for the first time and now I'm wondering how I ever coped without it, the tool is fantastic!
It is said that the tool is not that intuitive to use, which was one thing that put me off, but in reality it took me around 5 minutes to work it out, just by following the simple instructions. I can now take it on and off like a seasoned professional.
One other important thing to mention is the amazing Customer Service. I stupidly placed my order without properly reading the compatibility chart and then ordered that it wasn't compatible with my derailleur. I contacted Customer Service and Fernando got in touch and sent me a specially modified unit. Nothing was too much trouble. Without a doubt it is the best Customer Service experience that I've ever had!!
So if you're reading this and wondering whether or not you should purchase, just go for it, it's a great tool made by a great company.
With the newer disc brakes and bigger cogs, removing the rear wheel was a pain. The chainlift really simplifies this and keeps hands clean and the dirty chain off my carbon fiber frame. Simple to use. A great idea.
Bought chain lift to help with wheel removal for cleaning, as well as for frequent removal of bike on and off the trainer.
The tool does the job well, is easy to use, and came with clear digital instructions. The card noting 'I am easy to use, but not intuitive' was very helpful - pointing me to instructions to setting things up the first time. After just one initial try, I realized how easy it was to use and is now my go to bike tool.
A great tool. Have used to both transport and when removing the wheel to clean disc brakes. Less hassle and cleaner. The video was a great help. I took a screenshot of how it looks when properly fitted on the bike to keep with the tool.
You can of course change or lift your chain by hand for repairing, cleaning or transportation but it’s so much easier with chain lift. It’s not cheap but if you care for your bike it’s well invested money! The guaranty and support is also great!
