Default My new lift

After years of using my home made bike jack I finally broke down and bought a lift from Harbor Freight. I'll continue to use the jack when I only have to lift one wheel at a time.

I've always wondered where you tie the bike down on these type of lifts.

I can hook ratchet straps under the lift rails. Probably not the best, but I've used borrowed lifts before without any problems.

The ones I've borrowed, had an eyelet at each corner of the base. You had to lift the bike and then tie it down.

Looks light. Easy peasy to muscle around. Congrats.

I tie to the lift arms, not the best, but it works.

Yeah, it's aluminum, weighs about 50#. It's works really good and it's light. I used to borrow my buddy's, it was hard this old man to lift.
