Purchased this thinking it would be a nice to have. I’ve never found it easy to get the back wheel off during cleaning or maintenance so this seemed to be the solution.
Came quickly and works exactly as it details on the site. Very well made and is very sturdy. Like the fact they give you a selection of pins that cover most rear derailleurs. Works brilliantly and worth the investment.
Works as it should on both my 3T Strada with Sram Rival AXS and also my Cannondale Quick 4 with Shimano derailleur. Watch the videos. I was not rotating the frame support lever back far enough the first time I used it. Videos definitely help!
I was intrigued by the tool and considered it a luxury item when I considered buying it. It's pretty expensive but it works really well. Saves a lot of oily fingers and a tangled chain. Not very practical to carry on a ride with you since it's a bit large, but its quite light. I swap my wheels out on my bike quite often so this tool is great for me. If you have no second wheelset and don't need to maintain tubeless tires, I would suggest putting up with the oily fingers and spending the money elsewhere. However, now I have mine, I'm glad I bought it.
I have only used it once but Chainlift keeps emailing me, asking for a review. I’d say it’s a bit pricey for what it does, but it works as advertised with a few adjustments, appears solidly built and is nicely packaged. Maybe I need a little more experience with the tool before rating.
It didn’t take long to figure out how to use the Chain Lift and it is one of those things I wish I had years ago. Makes rear wheel removal and reinstallation easy and keeps the rear derailleur and chain out of the way. Great job.
