Scissor lift recommendations

I'm fed up with the hassle of using a paddock stand on my Bobber. I'm now looking to replace it with a scissor lift.


Any recommendations?

Just cleaning and lubing the chain and cleaning the back wheel. That sort of thing.


The paddock stand was always a two man affair to get the bike propped up. Even then, it was a **** of an effort.

I bought this about a year ago and use It all the time , works really well + It lifts the bike up a lot higher than a padlock stand . Im sure you can get these In the UK .

Just a word of warning, I tried to buy a hydraulic bike lift last summer, VERY CAREFULLY measure the ground clearance with the bike on the sidestand and MAKE SURE you can get a lift that will be low enough to get under the frame. Returning a 25kg package wasn't a lot of fun, despite getting the money back... there are also custom lifts that you rotate with a long lever under the frame, but it's a bit harder to find those with sufficient capacity...

Thanks all for the advice.


That lift from Amazon looks just the ticket!

Normally I would not consider entrusting my bike to a $48 lift, but I have faith in Mar-Vel. So much so, that I might even buy one myself.

I have a Pit Bull stand and it is almost impossible for me to lift the rear wheel by myself. I don't trust jacks. I bought this simple set of rollers to clean my wheels and oil my chain. It works great!
