Ratchet Lift

Postby hap2 » Sat Aug 06, 2016 2:45 pm



There is a ratchet lift available to pick up fallen bikes. I'm not sure who makes it, but it is iron, steel, or some kind of strong metal. It basically consists of 2 or 3 long (2 or 3') bars that assemble / fit inside each other. One end of those bars fit into a square (I think about 6' square) base. At the top of the top bar, there is a ratchet where you can attach a tie down that hooks on a center/lower part of your bike. Then u can just ratchet the bike upright. I think, new, they were about $200.00

I saw a video of it, but can't seem to find it again or where I can get one.

IF anyone knows what I'm talking about, please reply.

Thank u again so much.

Thanks for that.
It's a little pricey, but would give me a lot more confidence to ride alone

You're welcome. Trying to figure out how to make one myself..or better yet (for me) get one made.

Anyway, I'm glad to help.

My take is that if I was dropping my Goldwing often enough to consider buying this jack, then perhaps it is time to trike it. Not saying anything to or about anyone else, but if that was me, I would either trike it or quit riding. Once again, I am speaking of me, and no one needs to feel I am pointing at them. Anyway, Amazon also sells an inflatable bag that helps to get the bike up high enough to right it easily.

There's also an airbag that you slide under the fallen bike and use your compressor to pump up. I've only seen it on you tube, but it looked easy enough to use and packed away small.

The less expensive one of those ballons are about $275. CAD. The other one's > $400.00 That ratchet thing is "only" about 200.

But thanx for the suggestion.

Training wheels that pop up look to b (IMHO) my best option right now. Wondring if I can do gravel (howbeit slow) with them on.
